qmc2 question... 4 years, 11 months ago #3821

Whenever I d/l the Mame front end & unpackage, it gives me a folder with a minus sign on it, so I can't go into it, why is it doing this?

What are you using to unpackage it? If it is Stuffit Expander, you will be having permissions issues. Instead, right click the file and select Open With... -> Archive Utility. This should allow you to have the correct permissions to enter the folder.

If you still lack permissions, you can Get Info on the folder (CMD-I) and at the bottom click the padlock and enter your administrator password. Then you select your account name and set its permissions to read and write. If your account name is not there, click the "+" (plus) symbol to add it from the list that pops up and then change the permissions to read and write. Finally, click the downward triangle near the bottom of the Get Info window and select Apply to enclosed items... and click OK to apply the permissions changes to all files inside the folder.

diskimagemounter is the default app to open dmg files. I clicked GET INFO on the qmc2 folder with the red minus sign on the bottom but on the bottom under the sharing & permissions it says Fetching.... under Name & it hasn't changed for 15 minutes & still calculating the size...

OK, for the Fetching... entry, highlight it and click the minus symbol to delete it. Then click the plus symbol as noted above and add your account to the folder and set the permissions per the instructions I previously gave.

I know this is annoying to hear asked, but are you running from an administrator account? If not, then you should switch to one when installing programs. It simplifies life greatly. If you already are on an administrator account, then this may be an issue with Mavericks' implementation of Sandbox.

Could you do something for me? Try to do what you've been doing, using the .dmg file, but before touching the .dmg, open Console (found in /Applications/Utilities/) and click the All Messages entry in the lefthand pane. Then mount the .dmg and do what you've been trying to do. Copy all Console entries starting from the time you mount the .dmg until you see the folder with the red "-" symbol on it and paste them here inside code tags so that the post looks like the following:

Note: The above is just an example of using the code tags. Your console entry will pertain to what you are messing with at the time.
