OSError Permission Denied for /opt/local/etc/xdg/deluge on OSX 10.6

Keywords: OSX Cc:


I have built deluge from the git trunk using the default python for OSX (Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, May 17 2011, 10:52:47)) and after an installation with --prefix=$HOME I am getting the following exception when running '$ deluge-gtk'

Traceback (most recent call last):

OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/opt/local/etc/xdg/deluge'

I think the proper behavior is for the OSX version of deluge to operate as the linux version and look to the user's home directory as the first place for saving config information.

  • Priority changed from major to minor

after looking at the code a little more, this might be an issue with the xdg package on OSX.

in deluge/ @ line 143 it looks like the call to xdg.BaseDirectory?.save_config_path is returning an the system-wide path and not the local writable one.

sorry, this might be a problem for whoever is maintaining that package.
