ERROR: unable to create new .bash_profile.
« on: July 10, 2024, 08:26:53 PM »
Hiya everyone. I've been trying to install CDP today and run into a few issues. Once moving the cdpr8 folder into my home directory, running cdp8install.command gives me this message:

x@x's-MacBook-Air ~ % /Users/x/cdpr8/cdp8install.command ; exit;
CDP Install script: Mode 1.
CDP Install script ERROR: unable to create new .bash_profile.

Saving session...
...copying shared history...
...saving history...truncating history files...

[Process completed]

Just in case you're wondering, I've replaced any username information with an 'x'.

I've tried a few fixes to this:
In the Manual Configuration document, it states that, after typing 'env' into a new Terminal, 'If PATH already includes the above CDP path,   we are good to go'. When I type env into a terminal, the correct path does indeed appear, yet I'm clearly not 'good to go'. Regardless of this, I tested out creating my own .bash_profile file as via the Manual Config doc. Depending on where I install the .bash_profile file in my home directory, the 'ls -la' command also displays it, yet the installation command still doesn't work, and the error message remains the same.

Any ideas as to why this might be? Thanks
