Can't execute python scripts, is permission allowed?

I am trying to compile a project using "appcelerator" (crossplatform dev for iphone / android). I just appreciate it. It seems that some python scripts are doing the build, but can't get it to work (and don't make it to help forums anywhere). It looks like a permissions error, but I can't figure it out. I guess I would try here if this is a familiar thing in python:

Exception occured while building project:
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/Library/Application Support/Titanium/mobilesdk/osx/1.8.2/android/", line 2089, in <module>
     s.build_and_run(True, avd_id, device_args=device_args)
   File "/Library/Application Support/Titanium/mobilesdk/osx/1.8.2/android/", line 1934, in build_and_run
     run_result =, warning_regex=r'warning: ')
   File "/Library/Application Support/Titanium/mobilesdk/osx/1.8.2/android/", line 36, in run
     process = subprocess.Popen(args, stderr=subprocess.PIPE, stdout=subprocess.PIPE)
   File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/", line 595, in __init__
     errread, errwrite)
   File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/", line 1106, in _execute_child
     raise child_exception
 OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied


I have set the permissions for "" and "" to 777. The file "" is also 777. I am still getting permission denied. Is there something obvious I'm missing here? I am an administrator, on os 10.6.

The problem is not with any of the python files you mention, but with any command that must be executed by a statement subprocess.Popen


To fix the problem, you can try pdb

to debug the problem or just edit

and add:

print args


before subprocess.Popen

to figure out which command that has insufficient permissions.
