Can’t Launch Photoshop

“Could not open a scratch file because the file is locked or you do not have the necessary privileges.

Use the get info command in finder to unlock the file.”

What the? Of all the half-assed error messages! Where is my scratch file located? What are the permissions supposed to be? Deleting Photoshop’s preferences doesn’t fix this problem. Looking in /tmp, we found an Adobe file in there. Deleting that didn’t work either. The user is not an admin, and shouldn’t have to be.

Google has some other occurrences of this issue, such as this and this none of which are really useful. You know what worked? Restarting the the computer!
