  1. Please post one thread per bug report with the following information: What you were doing when the issue happened Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action Include any screenshots that might help us Include the Alfred version & build number you are using Include your OS X version I was trying to create a workflow earlier that basically looked like this: killall synergys nohup /usr/local/bin/synergys -f -c ~/.synergy/synergy.conf -d ERROR & ssh -f -R 24800: <myhostname> -- 'killall synergyc; synergyc -d ERROR -f' Basically, what this command should do, line-by-line is: Kill all instances of synergys running on my machine. Start a synergys process on my machine, with a given configuration, log level, and then fork the process. ssh into my other desktop, with a little tunneling magic, kill all instances of the synergy client running on it, and start it back up by connecting through the tunnel that I created. This works if I have it as a script on my desktop and run it, but I wanted to have an Alfred workflow that also posted a little notification when it was done. So my workflow looks like this: Input ('syn' keyword) => Script => Notification When it gets to the script, it doesn't seem to execute line two correctly. I've tried inserting each command line-by-line to see where it breaks, and it looks like it's not able to fork the process. Whenever I run the command with just lines 1 and 2 and run a ps auxwww | grep synergys to see how it looks, the process is not showing up in the results. I think I can "fix" this by having Alfred call a separate file, but it doesn't seem to be working as is. Other information: Alfred version: v2.0.3 (187) Mac OS X Version: Mountain Lion (10.8.3) I'm calling this a bug because if you're accepting shell scripts, I imagine it should be able to fork processes, but I can't figure out why it's not.
