Grey screen starting Lightroom problem

If you see above grey screen after starting Lightroom Classic, there might be some pointers what to do.

Try to re-install

The first attempt to solve the problem should be to re-install the software.

Log file

Have a look at the following log file

~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom CC/lrcc_console.log

In my case the following error showed up:

ERROR: Failed to create directory (/Users/foobar/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/), errno 2, parent directory (/Users/foobar/Library/Application Support/Adobe/) has permissions 40755
*** GPU Error: Cannot get GPU Host App directory ***
2023-07-05 09:17:39.902 Adobe Lightroom[5676:61231] initializing Camera Raw: dng_error_unknown
0: global error - C
1: [unnamed] - 1250880549:121+7
2: [unnamed] - C
3: global pcall - C

Solution was to remove the Adobe folder in „~/Library/Application Support/“ and re-install. The problem was gone.

Happy editing.
