[GRASS-dev] GRASS7.0 on Mavericks

I created a new user (also administrator) on a MacBook and started to
follow Michael's steps to install version 7 Maverick

I get a strange error on install, the directory GRASS (inside is the
application grass-7.0) is there but I do not have permission to open the
directory in Finder (though I did install it). Going to the "main" user of
the machine I could change the permissions, and also checked that GRASS7.0
runs well, all good there, no worries.

Going back to my user, I can go in the directory, and launch the
application, ok. Then things go weird. It was working well in the "main"
user but bugs in that new user... Both have admin level.

Python 2.7.5 found.


   1) Have at your side all available GRASS GIS tutorials

   2) When working on your location, the following materials

      are extremely useful:

      - A topographic map of your area

      - Current catalog of available computer maps

   3) heck the GRASS GIS web pages for supporting mailing lists and more:
