I need to install homebrew but I get this after pasting the command
The user "me" cannot be found
There was an unknown error.
This script requires the user “me” to be an Administrator. If this sucks for you then you can install Homebrew in your home directory or however you please; please refer to our homepage. If you still want to use this script set your user to be an Administrator in System Preferences or `su' to a non-root user with Administrator privileges.
I think it might have something to do with changing the name of my account / home directory a few months ago, but I followed all steps carefully. I really would like to avoid having to wipe everything.
I've tried using su and I get
I've tried using sudo and I get
Don't run this as root!
I've tried to work around it creating a new admin user and installing homebrew from there, and it works, but then I can't use it from the main user. Switching users all the time would be a pain. Any ideas?
My primary account is an admin account. It is the only account at the moment. When I use id I get 80(admin).
When I install from another admin account and then I try to use brew from my main account I get permission errors (can't paste them right now because I removed that installation) Should I install from a secondary account and then try to change permission of all homebrew folders and files to my main account? Does that make any sense? Would I be able to remove the dummy account later?
I still don't know what was wrong but I worked around it I guess?
I created a second admin account and installed homebrew, then used this to change permissions of /usr/local and removed the new account.
