MacBook Start Problem Workaround

From Transkribus Wiki

There seems to be an issue starting the Mac Version of Transkribus on newer MacBook(Pro)s - the program is not able to start without any error message.

The related error message when trying to start the app from a terminal using open -a Transkribus.app is:

LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed for the application /Users/xxx/Desktop/Transkribus.app with error -10810.

This seems to be a security issue in the Transkribus.app package structure on newer MacBook's which we have to solve.

A workaround for starting the program anyhow until then is to start a new terminal (search for 'terminal' after hitting cmd + space), then cd into the directory where Transkribus was unpacked, e.g. the 'Downloads' directory:

cd Downloads

Then start the program directly from the start script that is included in the Transkribus.app package:

./Transkribus.app/Contents/MacOS/Transkribus

We are very sorry for the inconvenience and will try to fix the issue as soon as possible!
