Looking for new opportunities
I am always looking for a new opportunities to expand my knowledge and help others while doing so, there for if you are looking for someone to join your team or you have something you want some help with feel free to reach out via email zaher[@]zah.me.
Today I was trying to install a tool called mackup, which will help backup/restore your configurations to/from Dropbox.
As this is the first time for me to use it, I choose the simple way to install it, homebrew, the command was clear and simple
brew install mackup
But sadly I faced a problem with the permission to create a folder within the directory
/usr/local/ which is needed
python 3, so after I looked around, I found that the best solution will
be to :
sudo chmod -R $(whoami) /usr/local.
brew install mackup will work without any problem, as the core problem in my case related to the fact
that virtualbox has installed some python library using root permission to
python 2.7 site-packages directory,
no idea what is the relationship between those two, but the trick has solved my problem, and I hope it will help you too.
