This information is now outside of the Fritzing application, and being translated from linux, so check this with someone more of a Mac expert before making any changes to your system. For ‘permission’, check who is the owner of the folders in that path. If it matches linux,
Users is owned by root,
Fritzing are owned by
itsme. To see that, from a terminal window
ls -dl /Users
ls -dl /Users/itsme/
ls -dl /Users/itsme/.config
ls -dl /Users/itsme/.config/Fritzing
On my system, editing to match your folder names, that would look something like.
drwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 8 Mar 19 23:31 /Users
drwx------. 1 itsme itsme 1960 Jul 8 16:14 /Users/itsme
drwxr-xr-x. 1 itsme itsme 1522 Jun 20 15:35 /Users/itsme/.config
drwxr-xr-x. 1 itsme itsme 66 Mar 20 13:30 /Users/itsme/.config/Fritzing
After that, it is beyond my knowledge. The other report you found could indicate that it is a Fritzing bug (or bug in a library it calls) that only applies to Mac. I do not know how many others use that here.
General question to the forum. Is anyone here successfully using Fritzing 0.9.6 on Mac? Specifically with Big Sur 11.4? With access to Preferences from the menu?
