Description of issue: Sonarr.app won’t start/open after homebrew update on Mac
I’ve seen these issues discussed on and off here, such as 4 years ago!
I bring this back as it continues to happen to me every time I get around to updating and I have to scratch my head before I remember what I had to do last time, it’s always adding the execute bit to the Sonarr binary itself. So in terminal you can just enter:
chmod +x /Applications/Sonarr.app/Contents/MacOS/Sonarr
The app should open normally after that.
My question is, why is this still a problem and where does the fault lie?
Is it not possible for the package installer that homebrew uses to add this executable bit to the binary?
And yes, update from within the app still doesn’t work.
Sonarr totally rocks though and is such a refined experience. I wish there was a Drobo app.
