The install command gives you already the solution :wink:


#4

So he is not - or he would have it in his output?
Or where did that output come from?


#5

No i’m not on El Captain, i’m on Sierra
I tried the topic solution but i had got the same error


#6

Ok sorry i tried the command line : “npm install -g ios-deploy --unsafe-perm=true”, and this command failed like the others.
And i here i’m tried the command line :“sudo npm install -g ios-deploy --unsafe-perm=true” and this command run as well
So thank you for your help and your reactivity !
