I’m using gradle from with Android studio. I’m on OSX 10.10.5.
The project I’m trying to build uses “git” command in its build.gradle: https://github.com/nickbutcher/plaid/blob/master/app%2Fbuild.gradle#L29
While trying to build, I get this error:
Error:(29, 0) Cause: error=13, Permission denied <a href="openFile:/Users/rdhruva/AndroidStudioProjects/plaid/app/build.gradle">Open File</a>
permission denied is happening because
/usr/bin/git is blocked by company policy (some security issues). We have a correct
git binary in
/opt/mycompany/bin/git. The path,
/opt/mycompany/bin is the first line in
/etc/paths. I believe that on OSX that’s the right way to provide the correct path, which gradle is ignoring for some reason. Running
which git in a terminal also shows the right path.
My (uneducated) guess is that gradle is hard-coding the path to
git somewhere internally.
