problem with uploading code to adafruit pro trinket using uno(FIXED)

I am having a problem with uploading code to an adafruit pro trinket using an Arduino Uno with the processor removed. I am using the FTDI headers on the pro trinket.
This is the error message: System wide configuration file is "/private/var/folders/63/g2plmkrj6zl_nr7g2fr4lgqh0000gq/T/AppTranslocation/EDDADD75-3416-4779-A75A-1FA54F9AF8AD/d/Arduino 2.app/Contents/Java/hardware/tools/avr/etc/avrdude.conf"
User configuration file is "/Users/fablab/.avrduderc"
User configuration file does not exist or is not a regular file, skipping
