I'm attempting to install Open Office and when I drag the app over to the application folder. Both by dragging it onto the provided shortcut or if I drag it directly to the folder I get this error message:
The operation can't be completed because you don't have permission to access some of the items.
Later I also tried to install calibre an ebook manager and the same thing happened. I can't even copy from the mounted image into my home folder.
However if I go into the terminal (as the same user) and do:
cp -R /Volumes/calibre-0.9.10/calibre.app/ /Applications/
Things are working fine. What could be the issue?
