I'm completely new to Cfengine and I've just installed it on my Debian system. But when I try to invoke any of its executables as a non-privileged user, here is what I always get:

$ /usr/sbin/cf-key 
Fatal cfengine error:  !!! No access to workspace

Strangely enough, it looks like my local workspace got correctly created:

$ tree .cfagent/
|-- bin
|-- lastseen
|-- outputs
`-- reports

So any idea what I'm doing wrong here? Googling for this error message drew a blank...


You're missing the inputs directory. Doing mkdir ~/.cfagent/inputs should do the trick.
