I immediately uninstalled it. When I opened and began process to use, the MacKeepers ransomware icon came up. To get to the Onyx app, Mackeepers kept moving in front, trying to force me to use it. I needed Apple techs to get rid of Mackeepers before, so instead of risking damage, I deleted OnyX by using Clean my Mac X Uninstaller. I'd love to find alternative to Clean my Mac...but taking no chances that OnyX is somehow connected to MacKeepers ransomware, because it's not on App Store

You have MacKeeper installed. It was there before you installed and ran OnyX. That's the cause of your problem. UNINSTALL MacKeeper IMMEDIATELY, if you have not done so already. NOTE: As the developer points out, MacKeeper has nothing to do with OnyX. That MacKeeper considers OnyX to be 'ransomware' is outright insane, furthering my very long held personal opinion and experience that MacKeeper is a plague upon the Mac community. Get rid of it. Keep OnyX! It's been proven to be a jewel of the Mac community.

This is unfortunately a problem with the current version of macOS, it's not Onyx's fault. I've had the same issue with other apps. Restart your computer and it will work as it should. Also consider adding more stars to your review so as not to penalize Onyx for a macOS problem.

For the benefit of others, the option to Show Library Folder under 'View Options' will ONLY appear if you have the Home folder highlighted IN THE SIDEBAR. If you just have Home highlighted within a file list window, the 'Show Library Folder' option will not appear when you press Ctrl J (View Options). Once enabled, it sticks, and you will see the Library folder in Finder. This option first appeared in High Sierra.

This terminal command also works in any macOS from Lion 10.7 and up.

Can you provide some guidance? I can no longer open various files in Finder, and get error message that indicates "cannot be opened because you don't have permission to view it".
Trying to google this problem, it appears it is recommended to open Disk Utility and do a review and repair of permissions.
BUT: I have OSX El Capitan (10.11.6), and apparently the permission repair has been removed. SO: then some are recommending to download OnyX and repair permissions with Onyx.
AND: when I right-click on a file that I cannot open and select Get Info, at the bottom it appears to indicate that I should already have Read & Write permission.
Can you help resolve my confusion and my current inability to open various files?
Like

@robertanema - this isn't the forum to do technical support, but here's some pointers to maybe get you in the right direction.
1) Repair permissions is still there in El Cap, it runs in the background, just not visible thru Disk Utility. That repair permissions function mainly repairs SYSTEM permissions, operating system files, who can execute, etc. The repair permissions step in Onyx invokes the same macOS repair permissions, it is identical, Onyx makes it easier to execute explicitly. From your description I think you are trying access files in Finder, I have to guess these are not system files, but just user type data files.
2) it sounds like you have an issue with USER permissions, i.e. files that aren't currently owned by the user account that you are logged in as. Are the files you want to open from another Mac that are from a different user log in, or the same Mac, but under a different account? If so, then you either you have to log in as the original user who created/owns the files, or change permissions to allow you, a different user, to access them, so go to #3
3) Are you logged in as a user with Administrator rights? You need to have Administrator rights to give yourself permissions to user files that aren't created by your account originally. See System Prefs/Users and Groups, see if your account is Administrator or Standard. If you are an Admin go to next step.
4) Do a Get Info on the files/file/folders you want access to. scroll to the bottom, Click the padlock at the bottom to unlock. You will be asked to enter an Administrator login and password. If you aren't, or don't know an Administrator login or password on this machine, stop, you can't go further. Once unlocked, select the user/group and change the privilege to whatever you want.
5) if it says you already have Read/Write, try creating a new user on that Mac with Admin rights, log in as current user that's giving you problems, give that new user read/write access to the file, then log in as the new user and see if you can access. If so, the solution may be to just transfer all your data to a new account and give that new user access.
Last resort, take it to the Apple Store or Geek Squad or Mac expert in your local area. Good luck

I am surprised to have heard this. Onyx is BY FAR the best utility app out there. If one starts messing with things they do not know how to fix or what it really does then I can see it perhaps throwing your system off into a tangent. I have tried all the mentioned above time and time again and all have failed in one department or another. Time Machine should be used regardless, but is a hassle a find if I want a quick clean the flushes unwanted data off my sysem. Clean My Mac is a scam and never does what it says it is doing, unless one runs the program several times repeating the same task to make sure it does it. Onyx is A MUST GET

The app you downloaded from the App Store was actually called "OS Cleaner". That matches the version number and build that you mentioned. It's free, but with extra features available for purchase. "OS Cleaner" has nothing to do with OnyX and it's from a different developer. So, it doesn't seem fair to rate OnyX as only 3 stars when your problem is actually with a different app from someone else.

9/29/18 I had assumed that Apple Support Communities would be against Onyx, because they are against everything that doesn't come from Apple, and they like to argue too much for my taste. Anyway, I used Onyx WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION, and it worked. It worked sensationally. I had had a couple of problems that they couldn't help me with, so I called Apple Care. They couldn't help me, either so, having nowhere else to go, I tried Onyx, and not only did those two problems disappear, but also another one that I had resigned myself to. Wonderful. Even better, Onyx fixed the problems even though I had no idea of how to use it. I just saw a command that said something like "Restore all defaults," so I chose it thinking that it could do no harm. THAT DID IT. I'll never know which settings had been causing the problems, but using the DEFAULT command brought my iMac back to its brand new condition. Thank you Onyx. I understand you need contributions. Well, you're getting mine within seconds. Thanks again.

There is a SPECIFIC version of Onyx for each major version of macOS. As of sept 24, the version of Onyx that is compatible with Mojave (Onyx 3.5.0) has NOT been released yet. You likely downloaded 3.4.9, which was an update released today for the version of Onyx that is intended for High Sierra. If you look carefully on this MacUpdate page, it still says this release of 3.4.9 is for macOS 10.13.x (High Sierra), not 10.14.x (Mojave)

If ever in doubt go to the developers page here and it clearly states what the latest version of Onyx is that is compatible with each version of macOS/OS X going all the way back to OS X 10.2 (Jaguar)
https://www.titanium-software.fr/en/onyx.html
In fact, IMO, I would go to the developers site always to download Onyx,....MacUpdate very often gets version numbers and compatibility mixed up, or is very late on notifying when an update is available.

Hi,
Perhaps are you not enough patient. It's normal (see the text at the top of the panel and in the OnyX Help).
During the verification, you may see the wait cursor (which looks like a colored pinwheel), and your computer may seem to be unresponsive. Some operations take a long time to complete. Wait for any selected tasks to finish.

siamlotus, I actually have the option to download from trusted developers selected in system preferences. I believe that the 3rd option to download apps from any source was removed in either Sierra or High Sierra.

However I found a Terminal command to re-instate that 3rd option in System preferences: sudo spctl --master-disable

So I've since been able to install Onyx.

I must say that this is a really useful tool. If you ever update software, a system, or migrate a drive, you really do need to clean the caches, OnyX does this effortlessly in automation. I recently changed my mac password but it was not accepted by some of my computers. I was tearing my hair out. Then I remembered the caches. I ran OnyX and they worked fine after that.

The developer, Joel is a really cool guy. If you have any problems, he will get back to you quickly. I once asked him why OnyX is free, and this was his reply.

"I have always said that OnyX is and will stay free!!
I refused to sell the code several times because I don’t want that it to become a shareware or commercial software.
Everyone should be able to use OnyX. ;-)"

Now every time OnyX gets me out of a hole, I donate on his website.

@ososX - so your argument that Onyx claims to support hard drives other than the startup is based on "information" you read and quoted, found at http://www.onyxmac.com, is that right?

You ARE aware that http://www.onyxmac.com is NOT the official website for Onyx, right? Do you have any evidence that the actual developer has any relationship with the people who own http://www.onyxmac.com site? Any evidence that the developer warrants any statements made on http://www.onyxmac.com?

On the site http://www.onyxmac.com, whoever owns or runs it, says at the very bottom "The information contained on this site is for informational purposes only. The owners of this site are compensated by relationships with the recommended software."

In simpler English people, these guys put up a site, get people to visit based on search engine hits, leveraging the fact that Onyx is so popular, then get money for the page hits, money from the software vendors they 'advertise' and recommend. The site wants the user to think that the developer of Onyx condones this site; but there is no statement to that effect.

What are some of those advertisers/supporters that pay the owners of this site, our readers might ask?

Just clicking through some of the pages on http://www.onyxmac.com, there are DOWNLOAD LINKS provided to such apps as MacKeeper, CleanMyMac, MacFreeScan, as well as RECOMMENDATIONS AND REVIEWS advocating the use of these apps. http://www.onyxmac.com/6-quick-and-easy-tips-and-tricks-for-fixing-a-slow-mac-yourself.html

These apps are almost universally acknowledged by Mac users in the know to be of dubious value at best, and at worst, downright harmful and malicious.

The legit Onyx site, owned and maintained by the ACTUAL developer, is http://www.titanium.free.fr. Nowhere on the REAL Onyx site does the developer make any reference to http://www.onyxmac.com, let alone condone it, or state any relationship with the owners of it. The developer may not even know it exists, or if he does, is likely furious that someone is using the good name and reputation he has worked so hard to gain, for their own profit.

@ososX keeps saying in his earlier posts back and forth with WetNet, go look at the "Onyx" site, and so on, and then even quotes text from the "Onyx" site, "The first scans that OnyX will make...." yada yada.

BUT HERE'S THE PROBLEM, the site @ososX is telling us to go look at, http://www.onyxmac.com/ is NOT the Onyx site; it is a scam site owned by people with no evidence that they have the developers permission to talk about Onyx, no evidence the owners have any affiliation with the developer. The owners of http://www.onyxmac.com/ admit they get paid by the vendors of apps they 'recommend' which include apps with some of the WORST reputations in the Mac community. Add to that the obvious poor quality of the writing, the poor grammar, and outright INCORRECT information on many of the pages, and it should be clear to any reasonable person that this site is a SHAM. Here's one example of outright WRONG info. it suggests using iDefrag to REMOVE files, quote "If you want to remove files that are necessary, you might want to consider defragging.....",. As we all know, defragging doesn't delete files, it relocates them. I don't make this up people, here it is http://www.onyxmac.com/explore-your-options-with-our-pick-of-the-best-mac-cleaning-software.html

Not to mention the obvious grammatical error when it is supposed to say "unnecessary", not "necessary". Yes, I quoted it exactly.

I encourage anyone reading this whole thread, go visit http://www.onyxmac.com/ , then come back here and post whether this site is credible and if anything said on this site is credible. So far as I know, the ONLY place where it is written that Onyx works on hard drives other than the startup, is on this http://www.onyxmac.com/ site. And this site is the 'evidence' put forth by @ososX to support his position, and to date, the ONLY reference provided.

Mcr < I'm so glad you jumped in because you are so wrong on all accounts. Don't you get sarcasm?! Another moron is you! Just read it simply, So tired of pointing it out to morons like you who don't even see the simplicity. Or you just refused to because of the monkey troll tendencies you have. BETTER YET jump on the LEGITIMATE forum and ask me there. . . moron that you are. . . so sad. . .

Onyx V. 3.2.1 is hanging up on repairing disk permissions, either as part of the automation, or when I tried to run that by itself.
I've used it for years with no issues.....

This is the BEST and Only Cache Cleaner I have used for 5 years and recommend it to all my clients as a Mac Software Trainer and Support Tech. I cannot believe some of the Idiotic Comments here. I never Download anything from MacUpdate... you might as well Install Adobe Flash from 20 or 30 rogue sites as to Install from anywhere other than the Apple App Store or the Developer Web site. I use Onyx regularly to clean up the droppings left by Apps on my MacBook Pro and it leaves me with a very Snappy Fast System. Sierra version works flawlessly. Joel is a Genius.

How can you know that this is the best cache cleaner there is if it is the only one you have used for 5 years? Not that I have to say anything bad about Onyx (on the contrary - I really appreciate it a lot) but your statement is a little stupid.

Neartheredrocks reply was "a little stupid" since I have tried many other OS cleaners along the way such as CleanMyMac, Cocktail, and a couple others whose names escape me at the moment. I was trying to be brief but left out a few words here and there and he took it "personally."

Why does the Onyx developer now deploys his app with a .pkg file? Why does it spread files? I always avoid .pkg installers. They can be bloated and insecure.

The .pkg is from MacUpdate, NOT from Onyx. I downloaded the .dmg and opened it to find only the Onyx app. When you are signed in, MacUpdate doesn't give you the .pkg,, which does install other apps besides Onyx. Or you could get Onyx from the developer's site.
