ERROR: when changing TEAPOT repository path: couldn't open "~.Tcl Dev Kit/5.0/GlobalDefault": permission denied

Posted by topic2014 on 2014-03-20 04:39

using Tcl Dev Kit 5.3 using TclApp

When i change the TEAPOT repository path (by doing Edit -> preferences) i got the error message

Our apologies, we encountered problems while trying to save the changed preferences. The operating systems reports: couldn't open "~.Tcl Dev Kit/5.0/GlobalDefault": permission denied

Any idea what the problem could be?

I solved the problem by editing the GlobalDefault file using sudo, but i'm not confident this is the correct solution..

On operating systems where sudo is needed during installation, maintenance actions will also usually need to use sudo.

I understand that. But when using the tclapp GUI, i except i can save the settings done in the GUI, not showing an error message that i'm not allowed to.
