I am trying to install the FeynCalc package, but I cannot load it, it always gives the following errors:

Loading FeynCalc from /home/gabi/.Mathematica/Applications SetDirectory::cdir: Cannot set current directory to fcdevel. >> SetDirectory::cdir: Cannot set current directory to fcloops. >> General::cdir: Cannot set current directory to .gvfs. >>

General::stop: Further output of SetDirectory::cdir will be suppressed during this calculation. >>

ResetDirectory::dtop: Directory stack is empty. >>

enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ Do not install from a read-only USB stick, but do it from a directory where you have write permissions. $\endgroup$ Apr 27, 2016 at 17:51
