Reactor installation error

#1

Post by vagos123 »

Yesterday I tried to install reactor plugin on my new computer but I had some issues.At first I tried to drag and drop in fusion the lua file of reactor but nothing happens.Then I tried to drag and drop the lua file in console but nothing happens.Then I tried to copy all the text inside the lua file and then paste it in the console.The last method worked and I pressed install and when it was 2/8 INSTALLATION i GOT AN ERROR MESSAGE.
[Log Error] Could not open ReactorInstallLog.txt for writing

I suspect the special characters of your username (βαγγελακς) are the issue. Try installing Reactor to a different location.

Hi,

I have a Mac w/ Catalina 10.15.7 and am having a similar problem to the user above installing Reactor V3 into Davinci Resolve Fusion. I've been through other places where instructions talk about Full Disk access and File & Folders for Davinci Resolve, but it comes up with the error below. I even tried disabling SIP, but that didn't make any difference either. Are there any specific folders I would need to create manually. What about the .cfg file. Is that created?

Many thanks for any thoughts.
Cheers

Full Disclosure. I am a total newbie in this space. I used to be a dev, but things have moved on since. ;-)

I found this thread - viewtopic.php?f=32&t=1775

I followed the instructions and saw the comments above each terminal command which seemed to connect with my write error experience. Unfortunately I'm experiencing the same problem as before.

I think I need to understand what the ls -laR "/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design" is telling me better, e.g.

total 16
drwxr-xr-x 5 root wheel 160 10 Apr 07:01 .
drwxr-xr-x 25 root admin 800 5 Apr 16:21 ..
-rw-r--r--@ 1 root staff 6148 9 Apr 09:53 .DS_Store
drwxrwxrwx 5 root staff 160 9 Apr 10:19 DaVinci Resolve
drwxrwxrwx 2 root admin 64 10 Apr 07:01 Fusion

Cheers
