I have a few that after install will refuse to open - no error. The first time they may appear in the Dock for a second or two; then disappear.
It may or may not be a coincidence - but both have 'storage management' in common: SeafileClient and PydioSync. Perhaps more likely to be relevant - both are also using Qt. (It is a coincidence).
If I run in terminal from
/Applications/[name].app/Contents/MacOS/[script name] then in some cases I see the process exit with an uncaught exception:
I can find no similar complaint for either, and have tried a couple of versions. In other words, I'm fairly sure it's something weird with my system.
I've recently reinstalled OS X, and am on 10.11.3. The issue persists after reboot.
After a bit more digging, I've found - bizarrely - that if I launch with
sudo, they work fine. Completely fine. But after closing either via the app or the attached terminal, they still won't open normally.
I didn't do anything odd to install these - two were downloaded .dmgs, and one was an Homebrew Cask. Other apps function fine.
Any idea what may have caused this, or how to fix it?
