I'm administering some Mac Minis for our workgroup. I recently needed to install Paraview, but ran into some problems I still couldn't resolve.
When installing Paraview 5.1.2 from it's .dmg file by moving the icon onto the Application folder, it ends up in /Applications. For this installation I used the only local account stsadmin, which surprisingly is an admin account. I can start the application, so everything seems to be fine. When I log in with another account, which in our case are network accounts, I can't open Paraview.
You do not have permissions to open the application "paraview".
I then checked the permissions:
$ ls -adl /Applications/paraview.app/ drwx------ 3 stsadmin admin 102 Jul 27 02:30 /Applications/paraview.app/
When I look at some other apps like VLC, this app belongs to root/wheel instead of stsadmin/admin.
- Is this problem caused by paraview? Or did I use the wrong installation process?
- How to fix it? chown? chgrp? If so, what is the correct user/group?
