Symptoms:

Everytime you open Logos, the "sign in" screen appears you are required to enter an email and password.

Problem:

The Mac User Account does not have correct permissions on key configuration files.

Solution:


  1. Quit Logos if it is already open.
  2. Open Finder to the Applications folder.
  3. Navigate to Utilities.
  4. Open Terminal.
  5. Enter the following commands, one at a time, exactly as they appear below:

chmod 755 ~/.config
chmod 755 ~/.config/.mono
chmod 700 ~/.config/.mono/keypairs

If they are entered correctly, they likely will not return any message or response. Open Logos and sign in. It shouldn't prompt you again next time.
