OS X V10.7 Lion :: "Mail Can't Open Because You Don't Have The Necessary Permissions To Change The Folder Where It Saves Information"

Apr 2, 2012

I am no longer able to open Mail. I get the message: "Mail can't open because you don't have the necessary permissions to change the folder where it saves information"  It then goes on to tell me where mail stores information and to go to that folder and use the Get Info window to change the privileges to Read and Write (which they already were). I authenticate, change them to Read and then back to Read and Write, click the lock and try again. Same result. I tried to take a screen shot of that window and got this message: "Your screen shot can't be saved. You don't have permission to save files in the location wherescreen shots are stored." Last night I tried to take a screen shot and got the same message. I repaired permissions in Disk Utility and there were thousands of permissions repaired.

On my old eMac I used Appleworks6 to prepare documents, letters etc and these were backed up onto a hard drive. I now have an intel iMac using Pages. When I try to open the old documents from the hard drive, the iMac tries to use Keynote to open them and tells me the document is not a presentation. The old files are .cwk files. How can I open these old files?

Intel Mac :: Why Cant View Multiple Open Windows

Apr 19, 2012

I used to be able to scroll the pointer down to the lower right hand side of the screen to display the multiple Internet Explorer windows that i had open. Now, for some reason it wont work and the only way to do so is to minimize each screen till i find the right one. I am not sure what, if anything, i have done to change this setting.

Intel Mac :: Calculator Widget Has Wall Paper Background - Can't See Open Documents

Mar 30, 2012

When I depress the center of my mouse to access the calcualtor, I cannot see the documents open on my desktop.  With Snow Leopard and Tiger, I could see the documents, so I could actually input the figures I am trying to calculate.  Now, some weird lego-type wall paper appears as the background.  I see my widgets, but not the docs currently open.

Software :: Change Permissions Whenever Access And Change By Another Account

Jun 6, 2009

I've been changing the permissions on some of my folders and files in my normal user account so they can be accessed and changed by another account. Problem is, I have a program that saves new files into a particular folder. When it saves the new file, the permissions are the default, meaning I have to change them myself in order to make them writeable by the new account. So my first question is - is there a way to make my first user account always save files with a set of permissions that I specify?

My next question is - what should these permissions be? Both of the accounts are admin accounts. Should I therefore set group to be 'admin' and give rwx permissions to the group? Or is it possible to set owner to 'admin'? Can a file be owned by a group? Looking forward to your answers! This UNIX stuff is fun!

OS X :: Don't Have Permissions To View Files - Corrupted?

Jul 22, 2010

I performed an erase and install of Snow Leopard and then used Migration assistant to transfer all my data back to my computer. After that I noticed that on my 2 other internal hard drives, most of my folders had a red minus sign over them and when I clicked the folder it said "The Folder can't be opened because you don't have permissions to see its content". I clicked get info and under sharing and permissions there was a name that said "unknown". was this the newly created account which I had deleted? Afterwards I added my account and applied it to all my files and folders. I can now access all my files and folders. But now my question is weather or not my files became corrupt or was it just a permissions issue? Also What caused the permissions issue in the first place?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Use Stat To View Octal File Permissions?

Mar 15, 2012

I've tried to use stat in Terminal to get file permissions in octal notation but the tips I've found online do not work in OS X. It seems that the Mac flavor of stat is slightly different from that used in Linux...  

There are a bewildering number of options in stat and I have not been able to find the right mix

IMac (Intel) :: Moving Mail From Broken MBP To New - Permissions Error Persists

Jun 28, 2014

My Macbook Pro from 2007 won't boot anymore, turns out to have NVIDIA GPU problem. It ran on Snow Leopard, but I can't enter it anymore to upgrade. I'm trying to move mail to my new Imac and have a TM backup on the desktop of it. I followed this [URL]..... Mail folder and plist are now copied in the same locations, new original Mail folder is parked on desktop because I didn't dare 'fuse' the two, let alone replace it with my old mail folder.

When opening the Mail app. I get the permissions message that I should set 'read and write' permissions on the Mail folder, but it says the info Mail wants to use is in the mail folder in the Backup folder, although I provided it with a copy in its own Library. The permissions via show info were ok, but I redid them and still the error keeps popping up. 


Why won't it use the folder from its own library?

Could this be because my previous version is too old?

I can't enter my mail or mail addresses, years of data there..

OS X :: Can't Change Em Back After Change Permissions

Dec 12, 2009

On the Get Info tab of my Applications folder I changed the permissions so that I have all the read and write rights of the whole folder. The it somehow changed to Name: system, and the Privilege: Read and Write. I didn't know that I was NEVER supposed to do that until I googled the issue. I googled a lot, and most of the solutions says that I need my mac DVD. I am currently in North Africa visiting my parents, and my Disks are back home. I tried many things, but the more I try, the more I seem to mess up my macbook. I have a macbook white with Mac OS X 10.5.8. Some suggest to go to Terminal, and use chown -R, but as soon as I open Terminal, i get the following:

login: PAM Error (line 400): System error
login: Could not determine audit condition

[Process exited - exit code 1]

I tried many suggestions, namely: " But I can't use Terminal.......................
