Installing BlogStomp on Mountain Lion

The release of Apple’s latest OS, Mountain Lion, comes with a few quirks which can effect the installation of BlogStomp. Dang it!

We’re working on it though, and V2 will smooth out all the kinks.

In the meantime, you may run into the error message below, or be asked to enter your OSX Admin password, when trying to install BlogStomp on a machine running Mountain Lion. Don’t worry though, there’s an easy fix. Phew.

This is a permissions issue – basically your system is telling BlogStomp it doesn’t have permission to install the bits and pieces it needs to in the background. We need to change those permissions to allow it to install fully.

Here’s how:

  1. Navigate to this folder: <Macintosh HD: Library: Application Support>
  2. Right click and select ‘Get Info’ on the ‘Application Support’ folder
  3. Expand ‘Sharing and Permissions’ section
  4. The ‘Application Support’ folder permissions should show ‘read and write’ access for the current user.
  5. If it does not , please add read and write access.

Now you should no longer see this message when installing BlogStomp.
