I have run into a problem with automator: I have a workflow that does image processing (it converts color images to gray). I am able to invoke the workflow from the terminal and it works fine. The command is: automator -i infile.jpg imageconversion.workflow
However, I am facing a problem when I try to integrate this workflow in a webapp, build in Django and deployed with mod_wsgi on Apache. The workflow gets invoked (I can see this from the webapp logs), but it runs forever, and eventually apache will kill the child process after several minutes.
I am running OS X 10.9
Has anybody encountered a similar issue?
