Due to the missing user writing permission for the home directory, the Avira Scan Service is not able to write the scan configuration to the home directory. Therefore, the scan cannot be started and leads to the following error message: An error occurred in the plugin.
To ensure a proper function of the scanner, the user writing permission has to be added via command-line.
Writing permission (command-line)
- Open Finder.
- Select Applications → Utilities.
- Double-click Terminal. The terminal window opens.
chmod u+rwx ~
- Press Enter.
- Close the Terminal.
