TotalFinder does not launch

issue

#21

I just updated to 1.7.0 today, didn’t have this problem before, now TotalFinder fails with this bug, and the workaround does not help.

I am running 10.9.5, on a 2011 iMac.

Normally I don’t get to use TotalFinder for long, anyway, it freezes, and I have to start Finder.


#22

Can you open Console.app and filter All Messages with “Finder” keyword and look what other error messages are there during TotalFinder launch?

because it is not entitled to send an AppleEvent to this process

For some security reason TotalFinder.app cannot deliver apple events to your running Finder.app.

This looks like some special setup of your OS. I don’t know how technical your are. Can you please double-check that TotalFinder.app is present in /Applications of your system and not anywhere else? Can you check that TotalFinder.osax is present in /Library/ScriptingAdditions and not anywhere else?

Can you try to create a new pristine user account on your system, log under it and try launching TotalFinder there?


#25

I have this problem since macOS Sierra.


#26

Me too on one machine, no problems on my MacBook now on macOS Sierra but on my iMac which I just updated TF doesn’t work, tried rebooting the machine and the workaround in Terminal, didn’t fix the problem so far.


#27

Ever since upgrading to Sierra I’m getting the error message “Troubles launching Total Finder - Apple Events cannot be delivered”. The “Read More” button links to this thread.

Here’s a paste of the terminal output and console logs after creating a ~/.debug-totalfinder-injection file, relaunching Finder (force quit isn’t an option anymore), and launching TotalFinder from the terminal:

#28

I experienced the same when upgrading to Siera on a MacMini - simply reinstalling TotalFinder fixed the issue for me.


#29

To get TotalFinder back up and running I had to do the following:

  1. Run the following command in Terminal:
    sudo killall -KILL appleeventsd

  2. Open Activity Monitor and Force-quit any active TotalFinder processes.

  3. Delete TotalFinder from the Applications folder on the system.

  4. Download and reinstall TotalFinder.


#30

I just installed 1.9.1, the version that was supposed to have no problems with SIP, and I am getting this message. I’ve beeen trying everything you guys mentioned here to no avail.


#31

@sambatyon Did you manage to resolve the issue? Maybe shoot me an email to support@binaryage.com and we can walk through the installation together. I have some diagnostics shell scripts which should give us more info what went wrong.


#32

Hey, thanks @darwin, I figure it out, I had to disable SIP before installing and enable after installing, not enabling SIP before installing. Once I did that all worked again.
