I installed a PDF reader called Zathura in MacOS Mojave 10.14.4. Zathura's version is 0.4.3, and I installed it through Homebrew (brew install zathura).

It works correctly: I can open PDFs in Terminal with zathura example.pdf.

I would like to find Zathura's bundle identifier, so I tried this answer, namely: osascript -e 'id of app "Zathura"' and also mdls -name kMDItemCFBundleIdentifier -r Zathura.app. I tried also with zathura instead of Zathura.

The output was

0:2: execution error: Can’t get application "zathura". (-1728)

Interestingly, in Finder > Applications, I do not find Zathura listed. Why? How can I get Zathura's bundle identifier?

Note: I would like to get the bundle identifier to define some custom shortcuts with Karabiner. Any workaround that might get this done would be very welcome.

  • Isn't zapthura just a command line tool and not an app? – Mark Apr 18 at 11:08
