Mac Terminal Access Permission Issue Here are a few things you can try:

Check if the file or directory you are trying to access has the correct permissions. You can use the ls -l command to view the permissions for a file or directory. If the file or directory has permissions that restrict access, you may need to change them using the chmod command.

If the file or directory is located in a system folder, you may need to disable System Integrity Protection (SIP) temporarily. To do this, restart your Mac in Recovery mode, open the Terminal app, and type csrutil disable. Then, restart your Mac and try accessing the file again.

Try running the terminal command with elevated privileges using the sudo command. For example, instead of typing open file.txt, try sudo open file.txt. This will prompt you for your admin password, and if entered correctly, will run the command with elevated privileges.

If none of the above solutions work, you may need to grant additional permissions to the Terminal app itself. To do this, open System Preferences, click on Security & Privacy, and then click on the Privacy tab. From there, scroll down to the “Full Disk Access” section and add Terminal to the list of apps with full disk access.

Hopefully, one of these solutions will resolve your issue.
