Wine only Mac for Photoscape error

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all!

I have installed Wine only Mac for Photoscape.

When I am using it to edit a photo, it perfectly works. But I faced an error while trying to save the photo.

The error is:

Failed to save.
If the file is a i°read only i± file, it cannot be saved.
I tried changing the permissions of the photo but still got the same error. I then went to .wine and changed the permissions to 777 recursively but I am still getting the error.

I don't think running it as root would fix the problem and it's probably not too safe. I read somewhere that running things as root messes up the .wine directory's permissions as well so I'm not going to go there.

Any idea on this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Maybe you failed to save your edited photo because of the file’s attribute. You need to check again the picture’s file attribute. Right-click the file or the picture then select Properties. You will see a somewhat similar box like the one shown above. Be sure to check if the Read-only option is selected.

If you see a check inside the box of the Read-only option, remove it by clicking the box and then hit Apply or OK. After uncheck the Read-only box, you can now open the picture, edit it again then save it without seeing that error again.

If you still see an error when you try saving the file, try selecting Save As instead of using the Save option and then specify a different name for the file or picture.

Hello Alden,

Did these files come from a CD when you opened them? Note that CD files have got READ ONLY attributes. And therefore you can just Copy and then Paste them, you can Open them, modifying them won't be possible.

Saving to another name won't be a problem, but of course, the original file will remain as originally created until that attribute is changes.
