You'd need to do: sudo chown root:root /opt/Local/chrome-sandbox and: sudo chmod 4755 /opt/Local/chrome-sandbox for it to work.

There have been 6 releases since the last update to this package. I've requested this package to be orphaned. We are on version 5.5.3 at this time.

@duhbLow7 : Many thanks!

is an authentication agent running?

polkit and polkit-kde-agent were installed but the agent wasn't running. I've installed polkit-gnome and started /usr/lib/polkit-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 manually, then I tried again to start a site and it worked.

are you using gnome?

No. I'm using i3wm. I was using KDE before.

Here are the some of the latest lines:

We are specifically looking for lines with "HostsFileService" in it.

There are 3 of them in there.

Do you get prompted for a password?

Hi all, I've installed the package and created a new site. I tried to start the site but Local complained about no access to /etc/hosts. I've changed the permissions of /etc/hosts to rw for all, created a new site but I'm still getting the same error:

Uh-oh! Could note update hosts file Local ran into a problem when trying to update the hosts file. Please ensure that the hosts file is not locked by anti-virus.

Then I found out that the error is not uncommon: but no solution...

Any other ideas how can I fix it?
