Just a Wild guess : did you try to chmod your pcsx2 dir ?

Nope. What is the command I would need to type? It does seem like it's a permissions issue.

something like
chmod -R 665 /Applications/pcsx2.app/Contents/MacOS/pcsx2

this is just an idea I got from basics in Unix shell since I don't own a Mac

Hmm, tried it:

Charles-Graham-Bessellieus-MacBook-Pro:~ TheMugReturns$ chmod -R 665 /Applications/pcsx2.app/Contents/MacOS/pcsx2
chmod: Unable to change file mode on /Applications/pcsx2.app/Contents/MacOS/pcsx2: Operation not permitted

Are you logged in as an administrator with all permissions? If not, make sure you are, then delete pcsx2.app and reinstall (don't worry about reinstalling xquartz or cg, if those are installed, you should have nothing to worry about).

Someone here had a similar problem: http://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-When-will...ow-Leopard

I thought the account I have is the administrator. Under "Users & Groups" it says my name and then "Admin". The only other user is guest.

How do I check is this is the actual administrator account or merely an account with admin privileges?

Right click pcsx2.app > get info > sharing and permissions drop-down box > make sure you have "read & write" enabled.

Do the same for xquartz.

Once you do this, delete and then reinstall pcsx2, see if that works.

Tried it.

Damn! What could I be doing wrong?
