Cannot run Pixilang 3 on Mac [SOLVED]

Post by iutisteli » Sat Aug 01, 2020 8:17 pm

Hello, I am fascinated by Pixilang, but I can't run it on my Mac.
Whenenver I double-click the Pixilang application on my Mac, I get this error: "The application “pixilang” can’t be opened."
Is this the right way to do it?

The OS I use is Catalina.

Hello! Thanks for your answer!

I tried moving the pixilang application outside its home directory, then put it back there, however, it doesn't work. I also tried using that terminal command, but it still didn't work.

The error I get isn't about the fact that the application isn't from App Store. Everything the error says is "The application “pixilang” can’t be opened.". Nothing else. When I try to press on the question mark near the error (so I can see more information about the error) it doesn't give any other information.

Please try again and then check the macOS settings -> Security & Privacy.
"App Store and identified developers" option must be enabled.
Possible you will see something like "Pixilang was blocked... Open anyway"

I checked, and that option was already enabled...
It still doesn't allow me to open the application.
Is this the right way to run .pixi files?

Please try it now: https://warmplace.ru/soft/pixilang/pixilang3.7b.zip?v=2
For some reason, the pixilang.app/Contents/MacOS/pixilang did not have an executable flag...
