Permissions

If you're having a permissions problem, you have to fix it before kJams will behave correctly.

"kJams Plugins"

Navigate to the folder "/Library/Application Support". (The one at root of your hard drive, NOT the one inside your user folder!)

New Way:
In that folder, if you see any of the folders "kJams" or "kTunes" or "kJams Plugins", delete them. Then run the plugin installer, then run kJams.

Old Way:
Set write permissions on that folder. Now go to the "kJams Plugins" inside it. Did you find the "kJams Plugins" folder? If not, make one. If you DO find the "kJams Plugins" folder, get info on THAT, then set write permissions on that. While you're there, also look for a "kJams" folder (not "kJams Plugins"). Set write permissions on that too!

  1. Navigate to the folder "/Library/Application Support". (The one at root of your hard drive, NOT the one inside your user folder!)
  2. Set write permissions on that folder (see below)

Now try it. Did it work? Then you're done. Not work? Do below:

Navigate to your /Library/Frameworks folder (at the root, not in your Home folder). Is there a folder called "EWSMac.framework" in there? Delete it. Now run again, does it work? Then you're good. If not, Get Info on the "Frameworks" folder itself, and set write permissions (see below).

Setting Write Permissions

  1. in the Finder, select the icon of the folder you need to fix
  2. in the File menu, pick "Get Info"
  3. In the Get Info window, reveal the "Sharing & Permissions" panel.
  4. Click the Lock icon and enter your password
  5. Next to all three users, set the popup to "read & write"
  6. close the window.

You should be good to go.
