nikivi Posted July 16, 2020 Share Posted July 16, 2020 Currently all Alfred users installing workflows that have a binary inside it will be met with an error saying you can't run it but you can move it to the trash. It's not obvious what you have to do to get rid of the error. So workflows are forced to add instructions like this one. https://github.com/deanishe/awgo/wiki/Catalina To basically all workflow's readme's. I wonder if it's possible for Alfred to recognize that there was a failure to run a script filter due to permission issue and show some kind of dialogue that says 'In order to run the workflow, please right click on the program name in Finder' and then on OK, open the Alfred folder in Finder for the user. That would be quite a nice UX improvement for all users, technical or not. Of course another, more solid option is to instead make users open Privacy settings and add Alfred to Developer Tools so the error never happens again. That can be achieved in a similar dialogue flow too. Reason I bring it up is I helped a friend setup her new mac and she was met with this issue on trying to install a workflow and it was confusing what she had to do in order to simply run it.
