error after running HistomicsUI analysis

running any analysis from HistomicsUI fails at the end with a file permission problem. For exmaple color deconvolution:

[2022-04-30 13:19:16,261] ERROR: Error setting perms on docker volumes [’/tmp/girder_worker/tmpfqc28zee’].
Traceback (most recent call last):

followed by a large number of errors. The analysis output in HistomicsUI is OK. Where can I set the permissions?

Best regards,


It looks like you are using the script to configure things. By default, the grider worker tries to write to /tmp/girder_worker from within worker volumes. My guess is that directory somehow has the wrong permissions. You can either specify a different girder worker temp directory with the --worker-tmp-root command line flag or ensure that that directory is writable by the appropriate user – I think this is the user that ran, but you could be certain by making it world writable (chmod a+rw /tmp/girder_worker).

I have tried even with chmod -R but every new analysis run makes a new tmp directory with wrong permissions and the run fails at the end:
