If I try to install Tux Paint, it crashes after installation and I get this error: Tux Paint was unable to launch (see picture 4). This error message comes up often. When I delete the app from the Applications folder, the box requesting permission to install updates is left in the dock, but I cannot click to approve. And when I move the app into the trash, it stays there and does not reappear. I can delete it using the trash, but it tries to reappear when I re-open the app. (If I have disk-space problems, I have two choices -- I can delete a lot of stuff until I have enough space back, or I can clear out the Trash -- both require a restart.)
Hi. I downloaded Sierra from the developer site (see picture 1). But it won't partition the disk, it's just one partition of 1 TB, see picture 2. I have 4 main partitions: 1 TB /, 500 GB /, 100 GB /, 512 MB. But the installer refuses to partition the hard disk. I can't even boot macOS Sierra from USB or DVD (see picture 3), and when I try to restore OS X from my Time Machine backups, I get an error message: "Mac OS cannot be restored to this disk. A copy of the disk has already been made". But since there is only a single partition, where does the installer save/copy it?
The installer is a disk image installer for the OS. If you are running the installer on a different Mac computer from the one you have TuxPaint on it will just copy the data (not the application) to the destination drive. You might try a network install. If you're lucky it will be just that, a copy of the installer disk image to a local disk drive on your Mac. If you can do the network option make sure it's not the Recovery HD or that is will be overwritten. Do the self-repair before jumping in! If you have that option available to you then download the installer either from this site, from your iTMS or by syncing the app from an iTunes backup. d2c66b5586
