@ChrisOSX I’ll set up an OpenCore test machine and see if I can reproduce this issue. Thank you for the detailed information and testing — it’s very helpful and lets me know what to look for in OCLP!
@eBara@oscaro The only thing I can really say at this point is that TotalFinder 1.14.2 (as well as the upcoming 1.14.3 that I’ll release to fix a new compatibility issue with macOS 11.6.8 Big Sur) just doesn’t have proper macOS 13 support yet. It’ll take some time for support to be properly added.
(※ Also, the notification you’re receiving about software written by “Antonin Hildebrand” being added to your system is intentional — TotalFinder is codesigned, notarised, and published by Antonin of BinaryAge. Apple is simply notifying you of that fact.)
Hi thanks again for your awesome work to keep TotalFinder working on M1 macs. I’m not sure if anyone has reported this but it seems that if you have your System Preferences->General->Appearance set to auto, when it switches to night time mode (or I’m assuming daytime mode) it kills TotalFinder. I’m curious to know if this is something that can be addressed or not.
I’m not using it currently but I had at some point installed xtra finder, so you might see some vestiges of that still in the system, but again I’m not currently using it. Not sure if there’s anything else in there. I’ve generated the totalfinder-diagnostics.tar.gz file, can you give me an email to directly send you a link for it?
【Important announcement regarding TotalFinder and macOS 13 Ventura】
TotalFinder is not yet compatible with macOS 13 Ventura, which releases on 2022/10/24.
If you want to continue using TotalFinder, stay on macOS 12 Monterey for the time being. You will still continue to receive security updates from Apple.
※ There are a few technical challenges beyond the usual ones that come with a new major macOS version and accompanying refactored Finder that still need to be addressed before TotalFinder will be ready for macOS 13 Ventura.
tl;dr: Don’t update to macOS 13 Ventura yet if you want to use TotalFinder.
Under Ventura on an M1 MBP I’ve noticed that although the installer installs the background process labelled for Antonin Hildebrand and it will show as being installed, that this process only stays installed for a few seconds and then it is removed from the list. Reinstalling TF puts it back into the background process list, but the same thing will happen again (and again and again). Everything else in the installation process shown goes without error. And, the TF options box never shows up in Finder->Settings no matter what.
I’ve been unable to figure out what’s removing it.
Ah, got your second email. I managed to find your original email too — it got erroneously mixed into the BinaryAge forum notification email thread, so I didn’t see it the first time around. Sorry about that!
(Your email client added In-Reply-To and References header fields that were referencing this thread for some reason.)
I also hoping for the update for Ventura.
It’s a damn mess to handle a huge amount of files with several hundred Finder windows you have to move around one by one, no cut/paste, no file color coding (tagging)…etc.
I can’t find (quick identify ) my color coded (tagged) files well with only a dot …
If there is use of beta testing / bugreporting, I can help as a beta tester.
