I am running spacemacs emacs and recently had to migrate my macbook to a new macbook. After doing that, I am having trouble using magit. When I try to commmit using magit from the magit status interface, I get an error:
files--ensure-directory: Creating directory: Permission denied, /var/folders/8sUnable to load color "#212026"
I also see what seems to be a related error on startup:
Error running timer ‘mac-setup-help-topics’: (file-missing "Creating file with prefix" "No such file or directory" "/var/folders/8s/y0zrtc6n38j0gwnvz7_l4q1h0000gn/T/jka-com")
I've got no idea how to go about debugging for fixing this. Does anyone have any ideas?
What I've tried so far:
1) Remove the
.emacs.d folder and reinstall spacemacs.
2) Reinstall the emacs for mac release from here
