This only happens if an application explicitly wants to monitor keyboard input. It's not the usual state of affairs. (I haven't seen it, though I do tend to 'Yeah, yeah' through these dialogs, because hey, who doesn't?) Is it always Aegisub asking, or is it always the current application? You can remove or add this permission subsequently in System ...

Time Machine sparsebundles use a very customized set of ACLs on the image file itself and the enclosing folders. Here's an example from a image created by a TM server for a Mac laptop (Qwe's laptop). >ls -lae total 16 drwxrwx---+ 5 Ben staff 170 14 Jul 2018 . 0: group:com.apple.access_backup allow list,add_file,search,add_subdirectory,delete_child ...

It is blocked by one or more of the extensions it installs: FileProtect.kext, SelfProtect.kext, TMProtection.kext You should always use Bitdefender's uninstaller at /Applications/Bitdefender/BitdefenderUninstaller and not these other apps you mentioned. Follow the instructions at https://www.bitdefender.com/consumer/support/answer/1784/ If that doesn't ...

I solved this with: sudo chmod +orw Note, I am not a MacOS expert, so I may be making this too unsecure, but these are temp files for me and this worked.

XAMPP-VM runs within a Linux VM, so you can't access the config files directly within the macOS filesystem. To access the VM either open Terminal from the XMPP launcher or run ssh -i ~/.bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/ssh/id_rsa -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no root@192.168.64.2 By default the XAMPP VM doesn't include any editor at all so you need to install ...

You can access the list of permissions in System Preferences => Security & Privacy. Select the Privacy tab and then choose Camera in the list on the left. You can then checkmark the apps on the right that you want to have access to the camera. If you have previously denied access to a program, it should appear here where you can checkmark it to allow ...

I have a similar issue. Following the steps in the Apple Support article, the terminal command "diskutil resetUserPermissions / id -u" never stops (within 8 hours). My symptom that led me to try to correct permissions is that every few days, most files in my home directory fail to open using Apple apps and others (Excel, BBEdit, etc.). Oddly, pdfs that ...

You have to give the Terminal.app Full Disk permissions in the security settings.

On the suggestion of the developer of Serial.app, I installed the FTDI VCP driver v2.4.2, available from the FTDI Chip web site. This seems to be a functional workaround to the problem. Yeah, Apple's driver should work without the FTDI driver, but until they get it right, installing the FTDI VCP driver should do it. The D2xxHelper driver is needed ONLY ...

I had the same issue and had luck with the following: Instead of dragging the folder, try to simply right click and copy from one location and then paste into the new location (one drive). Hope this works for you as it has for me.

Just FYI, I have the same problem. Using Fusion it will work on e.g. a virtual Windows Machine. Another user has also posted this, but no replies on that thread. It appears to be a more general problem. Update: I've been working on this for some days, but it might be working now. I am not quite sure what did the trick, however. I've installed/...

You asked: "How long should diskutil resetUserPermissions take (Catalina)?" If you follow the steps in your linked Apple support article under the heading, "If Terminal says that permissions reset failed", resetUserPermissions should finish in less than 10 minutes.

The screenshot shows the content of /usr/bin, not of /bin :-)

User-created Filters should be saved to /Users/yourUserName/Library/Filters. You may need to create this subfolder if it's not already present in your user Library. Also, note that the easy way to edit or create a new Filter is to use ColorSync Utility. If you edit the file in a text editor and get invalid XML, it can bring down the whole QuartzFilter ...

Catalina introduced a new feature that overlaps and reinforces the filesystem protections that SIP provides. What it does is split the files between two volumes: a system volume containing Apple-provided system files, and a "data" volume containing all non-Apple and modifiable files. The system volume is mounted read-only as / (the root filesystem), and the ...

As a general rule I do not recommend deleting system files, however, if you really want to remove the default wallpapers you can do the following: Boot to macOS Recovery by pressing ⌘R when booting the Mac. Using Terminal, from the Utilities menu, use the following commands: cd /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/System/Library/Desktop\ Pictures rm *.heic reboot

Catalina now installs /System as part of a read-only volume, so it cannot be altered whilst in use. You can modify or delete those files when booted to Recovery, but bear in mind that Apple may well restore them in an update to the OS.

It doesn’t need access - say no to the request. Unless you want some program that runs inside terminal to look at your user data, just decline these requests. This is covered in the security part Data protections - https://www.apple.com/macos/catalina/features/ - you are seeing the ask to allow looking into that data store / folder.

It looks like the proper two programs to give full access to are: cron terminal.app See rsync in cron on Catalina no longer working
