Re: FreeCAD on macOS Mojave

Postby leonardshelby » Thu Oct 10, 2019 9:30 am

Good news for now: On macOS 10.15 (Catalina) this issue seems to be gone. No more need for workarounds :) You just have to go through a few more safety measures to get freecad running after downloading.

There's another little bug, also with macOS 10.14: Freecad unexpectedly quits when I try to open a file from the "recent files" menu with no other file opened before. Is this macOS specific also?

Note: issue #3744 "Open file dialog freezes the laptop for several minutes (approx. 2 min) <-- Due to missing Code Signing" still is persisting for users.

There are some examples available for signing electron apps via travis:

But this needs an apple-developer-id which again needs an apple-id and a two factor verification ...
