I followed article below to install the SDK on my Macbook (OSX Monterey v12.4).
> dfx --version dfx 0.12.1
But cannot run successfully the
dfx CLI without prefixing it with
> yarn start Password: yarn run v1.22.18 warning package.json: No license field $ npm run generate > firstname.lastname@example.org generate > dfx generate hello_backend Error: Failed to create AgentEnvironment. Caused by: Failed to create AgentEnvironment. Failed to create AgentEnvironment for network 'local'. Failed to instantiate selected identity. Failed to instantiate identity with name 'USER_NAME'. Failed to load identity 'USER_NAME'. Failed to load pem file /Users/CURRENT_USER/.config/dfx/identity/USER_NAME/identity.pem.encrypted. Failed to read /Users/CURRENT_USER/.config/dfx/identity/USER_NAME/identity.pem.encrypted. Permission denied (os error 13) error Command failed with exit code 255.
And I found discussions below.
I solved this problem with
> ls -l ~/.config total 0 drwxr-xr-x 4 root 128 Jan 27 17:47 dfx > sudo chown -R $(whoami) ~/.config/dfx
dfx needs permission to generate identity.
> dfx identity new USER_NAME Please enter a passphrase for your identity: [hidden] Encryption complete. Error: Failed to create new identity 'USER_NAME'. Caused by: Failed to create new identity 'USER_NAME'. Failed to write pem file. Failed to create /Users/CURRENT_USER/.config/dfx/identity/___temp___USER_NAME. Permission denied (os error 13)
