After an upgrade to my oh-my-zsh software, I was getting a bunch of errors like the ones below:
[oh-my-zsh] Insecure completion-dependent directories detected: drwxrwxr-x 3 r00t admin 96 Aug 19 12:34 /usr/local/share/zsh drwxrwxr-x 4 r00t admin 128 Aug 19 12:37 /usr/local/share/zsh/site-functions [oh-my-zsh] For safety, we will not load completions from these directories until [oh-my-zsh] you fix their permissions and ownership and restart zsh. [oh-my-zsh] See the above list for directories with group or other writability. [oh-my-zsh] To fix your permissions you can do so by disabling [oh-my-zsh] the write permission of "group" and "others" and making sure that the [oh-my-zsh] owner of these directories is either root or your current user. [oh-my-zsh] The following command may help: [oh-my-zsh] compaudit | xargs chmod g-w,o-w [oh-my-zsh] If the above didn't help or you want to skip the verification of [oh-my-zsh] insecure directories you can set the variable ZSH_DISABLE_COMPFIX to [oh-my-zsh] "true" before oh-my-zsh is sourced in your zshrc file.
To fix this, I used the ZSH_DISABLE_COMPFIX option. The key to using this one is that it has to be placed before/above the “source $ZSH/oh-my-zsh.sh” line:
# ZSH_CUSTOM=/path/to/new-custom-folder # Which plugins would you like to load? # Standard plugins can be found in $ZSH/plugins/ # Custom plugins may be added to $ZSH_CUSTOM/plugins/ # Example format: plugins=(rails git textmate ruby lighthouse) # Add wisely, as too many plugins slow down shell startup. plugins=(git) #Fix errors ZSH_DISABLE_COMPFIX="true" source $ZSH/oh-my-zsh.sh # User configuration
