License installation problems

I’m having trouble activating my newly purchased Glyphs license.

I tried everything in this tutorial:

Creating a new user and activating the license with the new user worked, but now I need to activate it for my main user account.

What is wrong with my main user account?


  • Speedpunk is installed and expired (the dialog pops up on launch)
  • When I restarted my computer for the first time(safe mode maybe?), My laptop was frozen on a full screen terminal-like code (I have photos). I had to hold the power button to turn it off.
  • I have not tried to install via terminal, I’d rather not.

This is most likely a file permission problem. Remove all Glyphs preference in ~/Library/Preferences, restart and try again.
