Problem running apps from encrypted drive from diffrent users

description

Hey,

i did a complete fresh install of El Capitan, installed the latest version of VeraCrypt and OSXFUSE (multiple times).

Created a folder on / with read and write permission for everyone - so that i don't need sudo to create a container. Created a container (JHFS+; not mounted on other systems).

When I mount the container from the "root" account and copy an .app from Applications (ex. Contacts.app) to it, I can access/start it normally. When I switch users (not logout) I cannot start the Application because "..it may be damaged or incomplete..." (Icon is missing too).

When i mount it from the other account i can access/start the app but when I switch accounts again it says damaged again.

Ive read a lot but none of the things worked (including allow_other_user). Sadly it is essential for me as I need to mount it as root and all users need the same permissions/Applications. On Yosemite it worked without any problems. It doesnt has anything to do with JHFS+ as the same problem occurs on FAT too.

Can anyone verify that ?

What about the access rights on the JHFS+ partition itself?

Have you tried to disable the cache for that volume?

Thank you for your answer.

"Ignore ownership on this volume" doesn't change anything at all IMHO

When mounted from System Administrator account:
root (Me) Read&Write
wheel Read only
everyone Read only
terminal: drwxr-xr-x 6 root wheel 272 Dec 14 09:27 untitled

when I switch the user account:

John (Me) Read&Write
staff Read only
everyone Read only
terminal: drwxr-xr-x 6 john staff 272 Dec 14 09:27 untitled

Couldn't find any information on how to disable the cache ?!

Text documents can be opened by all users. Problem only occurs only on ".app".

Does the app store data on the cmmon drive?
Maybe its basically an "app already running" problem?

I do not know how apple processes .app (extract to temporary location? Or ist .app just a mac-suffix for executable binaries?!)

Its not. After a fresh restart nothing changes. There is nothing in the task manager and when i copy the .app from the encrypted drive somewhere else ex. usb drive - it works without any problems. It must be a permission problem.

They are like a container. There is a binary in XXX.app/Contents/MacOS/XXXXX- i once started it manually via terminal an root permissions. It started but wasn't working correctly icon missing - but it started it which also indicates that there is a permission problem caused by veracrypt or osxfuse.

On Yosemite and Mavericks everything was fin
