When attempting to install Creative Cloud, I get "Error Code P81".

When I attempt to install Lightroom Classic directly, I get "Can't find /tmp"

Related, I think, is a problem when trying to set up my Canon PRO-100 printer. Error: "Can't install the software." <-- that's VERY helpful, thanks.

csrutil status shows
System Integrity Protection status: disabled.

What am I missing here? What additional information will help solve this?

many, many hackintosh thanks!

Google is probably a lot quicker then waiting for a response here.
This for example suggests that you should restart in safe mode and install the software.

Yeah, I spent hours trying to get the Oracle (aka Google) to help me on this. Safe more produces the same error from Creative Cloud installation:


Unable to locate /tmp system folder. Please make sure the folder exists before proceeding with the installation

It really doesn't matter which Adobe app I try. Creative Cloud says can't find /tmp. Lightroom Classic says "Another installer is currently running... Error Code: P81".

I'm guessing this is related to SIP (thanks, Apple) but SIP is disabled.

Getting pretty desperate here as I'm running out of places to ask.

These errors remind me of that time when my permissions were all screwed up after a reinstall. I reinstalled the OS and then went to use Migration Assistant to import my stuff. Apparently I had created an alternate universe on my HD since the user that created the reinstall ended up being different than the user that Migration Assistant used.... I couldn't get iTunes to load its Library, Photos would not work, stuff all related to permission errors.

Look in that direction.

I solved this by creating a new install on an HFS volume. For whatever reason, APFS failed me. Lightroom, Photoshop and printer drivers all installed successfully.
