    Ok, so I'm almost done an app, but it won't open anymore.

    I have followed specific directions on how to give an app high permissions (4755), and I don't know why it's not working.

    I placed the .app in the /Applications folder.

    and I did:

    Code:
    chmod -R 0755 /Applications/APPNAME.app 
    chmod 4755 /Applications/APPNAME.app/APPNAME
    ldid -S /Applications/APPNAME.app/APPNAME
    chmod 0755 /Applications/APPNAME.app/APPNAME_
    quickload -ln APPNAME
    Any idea's why it won't open?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I got it. Can a mod please delete this thread?

    don't be sloppy and recursively set your app to 0755, unless EVERY single file in the app needs those permissions. for example, images only need 0644.

    that's just a tip.

    Oh.

    It doesn't really matter though... I don't think?

    actually, it's important. this is what's wrong. the lack of attention to detail in these things.

    Really? Whats so bad if you set everything to 777?
    I'm not trying to be rude or anything, just curious.

    things in the unix filesystem are set to certain permissions to maximize not only how they run, but their compatibility with the rest of the filesystem, which is really important.

    Dude, you're such a hypocrite. You tell us to not do "chmod -R 0755 /Applications/APPNAME.app", yet when you tell people how to install you're apps, you tell them to do such.

    Care to explain?

    yes. in my break, i've taken the time to

    1. grow up
    2. pay more attention to details
    3. learn from my mistakes, and all the things i've done wrong in the past. what's done is done. i cannot change that. however, i can spread my new knowledge to the people doing it wrong.

    i see you have yet to do #1
