X-Plane and Catalina

Recommended Posts

If you value your copy of X-Plane and all the time and money spent on scenery and aircraft then DO NOT upgrade your Mac to the new Catalina OS.  I made this mistake. Catalina insists that it can't load many of my plug-ins and other critical parts of my beloved ZIBO Mod 738 and it is now just a shell of what it was before the change from Mojave to Catalina.

Again, upgrade your Mac OS to Catalina at your peril.

I suggest you look into the following command-line trick: xattr

- Open your Mac’s “Terminal” app
- cd to your “X-Plane 11” directory
- Issue the following command...

sudo xattr -cr .

(Don’t miss the space-dot on the end)

You’ll be prompted for an admin password

Basically, this command clears extended attributes on everything in your current directory (that’s the “.”) and goes recursively through all subdirectories.

I use this to clear Catalina’s “quarantined” attribute for stuff I’ve downloaded into X-Plane.
