I’m trying to run nightly build (2023-06-23) on my macOS (14.0) , and mac says The application “Tor Browser.app” can’t be opened. and I tried to on the same build on Windows and it worked. I spctl --global-disable it didn’t work. How can I open that or how can I build myself?
Hey @nvlli, are you using a mac with an apple silicon (e.g. M1 or M2) chip by any chance?
I’m using m2 MBA
Right – unfortunately apple silicon based macs no longer allow you to run unsigned builds, and Tor Browser Nightlies are unsigned. I believe you can self-sign the builds if you’re comfortable using the terminal (calling @danb, author of the script you’ll need to use), or you can switch over to the Alpha release channel instead.
Great, I’m using the alpha release already and it’s awesome. Still perhaps it’s not that “alpha” to me ( I’d find out how to sign apps with or without devs’ help, thank you!
So I wrote the linked to script to help/automate the process, as I have to do it too, and then added a bunch of docs to it to help with the parts that aren’t automatable. Let me know if it helps/works or if part of it doesn’t work for you so I can try and make it more applicable to more folks
