Hollywood script with Catalina OS X

Post by Pierre55 » Fri Feb 21, 2020 1:43 pm

Hi,

Since I upgrade my Mac-Mini 2018 to Catalina I can't run scripts from Hollywood, for example the TextEditor example say that I need to update and contact the developer!

Maybe it's RapaGUI that needs an update ?

Thank you.

Works fine here. Are you using the 64-bit versions of Hollywood 8 and RapaGUI 1.2?

I use an Amiga 4000 to compile the script with Hollywood 8 (08.02.19) and RapaGUI 1.2 (22,09,17)

Can you send me the TextEditor example compile by your system so I can see if it's working!

Thank you.

Hi,

I have a message in French translated by: Impossible to open the application "TextEditor"

Very strange...

Thank you.

Have you disabled Gatekeeper? macOS forbids running applications downloaded from the internet by default...

Hi,

I found this about Gatekeeper but still can't run the TextEditor...

I'll try later other example and let you know.

========================================
To disable Gatekeeper:

Sudo spctl --master-disable

To enable Gatekeeper:

Sudo spctl --master-enable
========================================

while I was using Mojave all script works, I just add to right click on the program the first time and give the permission to execute the file. Now with Catalina I can't run the script.

Bye!

I think you also need to go the security & private settings in the system preferences and set the app download option to "Anywhere". See here for instructions:

I did every step and still can't open any compiled script, I tried today the SnowFlake example!

Again very strange since the problem begin when I update from Mojave...

Well I guess there is nothing I can do to see why the applications won't RUN on my Mac mini 2018.

Thank you.

Have you set execute permission on the app bundle's main executable? E.g. for the TextEditor.app test app that I uploaded above, you need to enter the following first (from Terminal):

Code: Select all

chmod 755 TextEditor.app/Contents/MacOS/TextEditor
