Okay, that first line of code returned with a whole bunch of data that spans roughly three times the height of my 27-inch mac, dating all the way back to march last year. The second line returned data roughly 1/4 of the height of my screen and they are all dated 2013-14.

I see the words "root wheel" a lot.

I have no idea what I am looking at. :thumbsup

What you describe is what you _should_ see, so you're good.

That means both those directories actually exist, which rules out the possibility that "Operation not permitted" or "Permission denied" was thrown because those directories don't exist. Which brings us back to either a) Your Steam games are not installed in the location my commands think they are or b) You typed in your password wrong three times in a row to the "sudo" command.

To see if your game/libraries are where I think they are, run:

ls -l ~/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/steamapps/common/DROD\ Gunthro\ and\ the\ Epic\ Blunder/DROD.app/Contents/Frameworks

Returned with this error:

-bash: s: command not found

However..... While I was trying out the sudo for the first time I DID actually type in my password wrong 3 times, because I did not realise that my password would not show, so I pawed at my keyboard several times like a cat in front of a fish tank.

Did I break it? :fun

-bash: s: command not found: You likely forgot the starting "l" of "ls". Try again.

Regarding your password: you did not break it, but after three failed attempts, your command did not run at all (i.e., you didn't break anything, but you also didn't fix anything). I would try the following again:

sudo ln -s ~/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/steamapps/common/DROD\ Gunthro\ and\ the\ Epic\ Blunder/DROD.app/Contents/Frameworks/libvorbisfile.3.dylib /usr/lib/libvorbisfile.dylib

And also:

ln -s ~/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/steamapps/common/DROD\ Gunthro\ and\ the\ Epic\ Blunder/DROD.app/Contents/Frameworks/libvorbisfile.3.dylib /usr/local/lib/libvorbisfile.dylib

If you'd like, we can chat on Steam chat to make this easier.

Solution found! Follow Up:

After chatting with Morbus, who is a literal wizard on steam chat I was able to get around my 3 failed password attempts. and re-navigate the false directory. I feel like my password lockout was on some sort of timer? not sure. Many thanks to Morbus for his insight!
