I’ve downloaded Unity Hub on my Mac and I’m trying to download the following: Editor application, Mono for Visual Studio for Mac and Visual Studio for Mac. The problem is every time I try download them for Editor application it says- Install failed: permission denied, mkdir ‘/Applications/Unity’. What am I supposed to do?
This is a long-running saga on Macs. I’m a Mac user myself and have never had the problem. However, you will find plenty of people on the Unity Forums that have reported it. Solutions suggested include:
- Creating the folder yourself
- Installing to /Users/USERNAME/Applications/Unity
- Changing permissions on that folder to Read/Write
Of course, you need to install as an Administrator but I guess you’ve already cracked that particular nut…
