Unable To Launch - OS X Lion 10.7
« on: July 21, 2011, 10:51:48 pm »

Hi Team,

Please advise as I am recieving the following error when attempting to launch the game in the latest version of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

Has anybody else had this issue?

sudo mkdir  /Users/IanFlynn/.uqm
sudo chmod 755  /Users/IanFlynn/.uqm

Should get you play, but this isn't a solution if this happens on all OS X Lions.

To use the above instructions, find the application Terminal, in /Applications/Utilities/

You will need to enter your password.

I wonder if Lion has locked the home directory as a replacement for their existing Library protection.

In the long term, I'd suggest instead putting the uqm files in ~/Library/Preferences/uqm/ on macs.

I actually think ~/Library/Application Support/uqm/ fits more into how Mac is supposed to do things; Preferences I think is usually used for a single file, usually (though not always) a plist file.
