_Rf Posted November 1, 2022 Share Posted November 1, 2022 Hey all Alfreds, I have some strange behaviour here I can't explain, then I wouldn't be qualified to do so anyways: Yesterday I updated one of my macs (A) to Ventura, the other (B) is still on Monterey. Both are running Alfred 5.0.3 (A) is running python 3.11, (B) 3.09 I have a workflow to log my working hours. It writes the hours to one text file per project. The current or most recent project names are stored in the workflows variables. I call python scripts in my workflow. Everything worked fine until yesterday: On both machines (synced via Dropbox) the workflow plist storing the variables can't be read anymore. (A): Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Users/rf/Desktop/testFileOp.py", line 13, in <module> info = pl.load(fp) ^^^^^^^^^^^ File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.11/lib/python3.11/plistlib.py", line 864, in load if info['detect'](header): ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.11/lib/python3.11/plistlib.py", line 410, in _is_fmt_xml if header.startswith(pfx): ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ TypeError: startswith first arg must be str or a tuple of str, not bytes I can't tell if this has anything to do with Alfred 5.0.3 (Build 2087), don't recall when I did the update. Or Ventura (only one mac) or python 3.11 (again only one updated). The plist of other workflows give me the same error. As hinted above, I don't really know what I am doing, but it worked until very recently and I don't find any similar posts here or documented changes in python. Thanks for your help, for now I have to manually write my hours in that text doc, like an animal (!) - so really urgent. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
