Common Causes

  1. 2.5 was installed previously.
  2. You are logged into the machine with 1 user, then SSHing in as another.
  3. Your anti-virus is blocking the processes from starting.

Solutions

  1. Re-install 2.5 and run sudo /Library/Application\ Support/Veertu/Anka/tools/uninstall.sh.
  2. Log into the UI with the user you’re using for SSH.
  3. Disable all anti-virus software.
