Anyone have this issue running the maintenace scripts?

Here is my log.

Running daily maintenance scripts

Sun Dec 2 14:05:52 CST 2007

Maintenance scripts complete

All the Maintenance scripts come back with permission denied.
Verify and repair permissions has been run.
Have not found any info on this as of yet.
Already e-mailed Main Menu developer also.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Emailing the dev is very good, bob! That helps him tweak his app so it can be even better.

I am running Tiger and do not see these messages: it comes out clean every day:

Maybe it's a Leopard thing and it isn't as compatible as we all thought. Keep us up to date if the developer replies. I would imagine he will. Keeping my fingers crossed for ya.

I knew I'd figure it out as soon as I posted it.
Bought Xslimmer last week and just moved my entire Apps folder into it.
Cut just over 2GB of space out.

Just now went in and deleted the slimmed down version of Main Menu and re-installed it. Now get a clean log.

Now I have to e-mail both of them...

Good to hear. I have not had one issue with MainMenu and Leopard since MHC turned me on to it! Great little utility!

Yeah, now if Apple could take care of the wireless issue under Leopard I'd be a happy camper.
