RawTherapee can't find folders on desk top on Mac.

Tried different versions of raw therapee, but none can find folders on mac desk top. Went into system preferences to allow it to use folders, but raw therapee doesn’t show up, yet other applications do?

What version of macOS?


On my Mac RT crashes whenever I try to save an image (as soon as I hit the save icon). I posted more info and some crash reports and symbols in this thread

could someone take a look please?

I’m on High Sierra

I am wondering if it is related to the OP report


I’m on Mojave and I can’t even get RT5.7 to open! I’m really looking forward to a solution to the RT5.7 for Mac issue.

Please try this build: https://keybase.pub/kd6kxr/RawTherapee_OSX_10.9_64_5.7-135-g911cc85ff.zip

You may need to open RT from the command line in order for macOS to give it filesystem permission.

Hi, as already mentined in another thread, 5.7-135 is working for me on High Sierra. I observed that sometimes when I open it, it crashes but if I reopen immediately a second, and in occasions even a third time, it then works fine. It seems related, but I don’t have any proof, to the number of pictures you have in the default folder. I also allow time to the file browser to read all the files in the folder before opening one for development. I don’t have problems getting to folders on desktop.

Thanks, Mica. I tried that and it doesn’t work either. I just get a ‘quit suddenly’ message.

Did you launch it from the terminal?

Both from the icon and from the terminal.

Thanks, but it won’t even open.

Catalina has broken lots of software, of which RawTherapee is one. We don’t have a lot of macOS developers, so if anyone can help out, that’d be great.

I’m still using Mojave, Mica.

The terminal path to launch the executable is RawTherapee.app/Contents/MacOS/rawtherapee in case anyone hasn’t tried that. It launches the actual executable, instead of the standard double click on the app.
