Plugin fail to install

It may happens that you fail are blocked while installing a plugin or opening Coraye for the first time. Let's see together how to unlock the situation with only two commands !

Coraye require a specific folder to be accessible

You may create or unlock a specific folder that is used by Coraye to install dependencies. This folder is /usr/local/lib.

Does the folder exist ?

To check if the folder exist you will need make a specific command into your terminal (Space + Cmd then ask for "terminal"). The command you will need to enter is :

sudo mkdir /usr/local/lib

Then your password will be required, so enter it. What have we done :

  • sudo mean "as an admin, please do the following command".

  • mkdir mean "create this folder if it does not exist yet

  • /usr/local/lib is the folder we want to create/check that it exist

Does we have the right to read & write inside the folder ?

To allow Coraye to write and read inside the folder we will do a second and final command inside our terminal :

sudo chmod ugo+rw /usr/local/lib

This time it won't ask for your password since you already enter it. With this last command what have we done :

  • sudo still mean "as an admin, please do the following command".

  • chmod mean "change the folder access right to..."

  • ugo+rw mean "... read and write mode"

  • /usr/local/lib is the folder we want to read and write in

Now you can quit Coraye that should be still be blocked (Force exit if needed) then re-start it.

And we're done 🎉
