Why is it so hard to get MacOS to open an app I want?
Posted on Feb 02, 2022
MacOS: App is damaged and can’t be opened.
me: xattr -c /Applications/Awesome.app
xattr -c /Applications/Awesome.app
MacOS: App cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified.
me: *right-click > Open*
MacOS: Awesome.app is an app downloaded from the Internet.
Are you sure you want to open it?
*App opens magically.*
