I have a few problems with file permissions:

Code:
Group differs on “Library/Printers/InstalledPrinters.plist”; should be 80; group is 0.
Permissions differ on “Library/Printers/InstalledPrinters.plist”; should be -rw-rw-rw- ; they are -rw-r--r-- .
User differs on “private/var/db/displaypolicyd”; should be 0; user is 244.
Group differs on “private/var/db/displaypolicyd”; should be 0; group is 244.
I fix the permissions which is fine but when I restart I still have the same errors, any ideas?

Thanks

I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE HAVING THIS TROUBLE!!!!!

for the plist part, it's rather ease, you could manually change it.

but for the displaypolicyd part, I've literally tried everything ... it just won't fix.
anyone have any idea on what the heck this thing really is?

Had this as well ( maybe have it still, did not further investigate ). Should not be an issue at all, nothing to worry about. Just leave as it is. I see such permission inconsistencies in every release of OS X.

SAME HERE!

I'm having this concern since OS 10.8 and still no clue. But it never cause any "visible" trouble so I just let it be.
