The continuing Saga of Lion

Hold on Cowboy

This blog post is pretty old. Be careful with the information you find in here. It's likely dead, dying, or wildly inaccurate.

Should you upgrade to OS X Lion??? Meh…. it’s presented more problems than previous upgrades.

Maybe I should have waited until 10.7.1, so this is my punishment for being bleeding edge.

Another issue I saw was the continual nag when I opened some apps (Billings and Cyberduck) that “This program was downloaded from the Internet… blah blah blah” This normally happens once for a program then goes away after you say “OK”, but this was happening everytime I opened those two programs.

The solution.

sudo xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Billings.app

This shut the bugger up.

Did this help you out? It took me a few days to piece together all this information together, I hope this saves you some time (who knows, maybe the future me will be thankful I wrote this down). Let me know your thoughts. shanestillwell@gmail.com
