Me: Model: iMac7,1, BootROM IM71.007A.B03, 2 processors, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.4 GHz, 3 GB, SMC 1.21f4 Running Mac OS X 10.6.8 (I know time to upgrade) Also related to this I'm using Adobe Creative Suite 5 (Indesign 7) So it started a couple of days ago when I noticed my external HD was locked on my home computer...Firefox can't update and then Photoshop tells me it can't save preferences and InDesign tells me it can't open (unexpectedly quits when opening). Uh oh. I've used Adobe Cleaner to try and solve the issue along with multiple uninstalls/installs of Adobe Creative Suite. And so I've narrowed this down to a permissions issue (I believe it happened when I was trying to share my external HD to our Boxee). I downloaded Batchmod to see if that would work and i managed to unlock the external HD but no luck yet for Adobe CS. I tried unlocking all the preferences in user/library/preferences and that worked (still locked but not grayed out) but user/applications and manged is still grayed out with custom access.And I'm sure there's other folders hiding that need to be unlocked. Is there a blanket command for terminal to unlock everything? I know using * in Terminal could work but where do I start?
