How do i fix the broken ownership after mounting dmg on my system ?

On some Lion systems the default security values for mounted DMGs won't allow scripts to run with administrative privileges.

This is a problem for us since Glims installation scripts need those privileges.

To fix it.

Step 1 - Double click on Glims dmg from finder.


Step 2 - Click on Glims mounted volume and cmd-i to get the information panel.


Step 3 - In the information panel make sure the "Ignore ownership on this volume" checkbox at the bottom of the panel is on.

[ UPDATE: Apparently, if the box is already checked, you need to uncheck and recheck it. ]


Voila. Now you should be able to install Glims.
