Open in Terminal

Hello Support,

in the preferences of PF I can select which terminal I want to use.
Selecting iTerm or Terminal leads to a loss of functionality.
Lets say the current directory in the PF pane is /Applications and I select in the context menu "Open in Terminal" (I use the German version, may be it’s a different string in the English version).

Standard Terminal is
1) Pathfinder: current directory in PF terminal is /Applications (expected)
2) Terminal: current directory in Terminal is $HOME (wrong)
3) iTerm: same as in 2

I would consider this as a annoying bug.

Regards
Michael

    Hello,

    I have just tested this function.
    With iterm as my terminal it worked the way it should.

    macOS 10.14.1

    In my case its not working - see my first comment.
    Here are some screenshots, one with Pathfinder as Terminal, one with Terminal from Apple as Terminal. PF terminal works, Apple Terminal (and iTerm2) doesn’t.

    Regards

    I have the same problem; when I action "open in terminal" (either from toolbar or contextual menu), iterm (or Terminal) gets focus, but as it was, i.e., no new tab is open and no cd to the current directory in path finder is done.

    pls refer following page, may be required NSAppleEventsUsageDescription of mojave is missing?

    https://www.felix-schwarz.org/blog/2018/08/new-apple-event-apis-in-...

    • If you build your app with the 10.14 SDK, the NSAppleEventsUsageDescription key is required. If it is not provided, trying to send an AppleEvent to another, running app will always return error errAEEventNotPermitted (-1743). The key is only optional when using older SDKs.
    • If you use AppleEvents in a helper app that's contained in your app's bundle, macOS may expect and use the value for the NSAppleEventsUsageDescription key in the app's Info.plist, not the helper app's Info.plist.
    • Apps can only provide one usage description. It is not possible to provide different usage descriptions for every target app. I still hope we'll get that capability at some point in the future.

    Can confirm same bug.

    PF 8.3.6
    macOS 10.14.2

    You can see the correct path in the terminal flash before resetting back to "home".
    This worked fine in my old mac running 10.12.6

    Please fix this right away.

    Running PF 8.3.7 on 10.14.2, I get the same behavior as above with Terminal.app, but with iTerm.app, focus goes to iTerm yet no terminal opens, with the following error in syslog even after adding PF to Accessibility in the Security prefpane:

    {
        NSAppleScriptErrorAppName = iTerm;
        NSAppleScriptErrorBriefMessage = "Not authorized to send Apple events to iTerm.";
        NSAppleScriptErrorMessage = "Not authorized to send Apple events to iTerm.";
        NSAppleScriptErrorNumber = "-1743";
        NSAppleScriptErrorRange = "NSRange: {265, 14}";
    }
    

    It seems PF needs to ask to be added to Automation ? Launchbar apparently asked for permission to control PF ...

    terminal and iterm only ever opens in the HOME folder; only PF works as expected.

    I have the same problem. This seems like an easy fix, yet it almost 4 months since it has been reported. Path Finder was my #1 app on mac, couldn't live without it, but now I don't recommend it to anyone, cause it's terribly buggy, slow and the support is horrible. Besides they ask money for updates that make the app only worse bringing absolutely no value to me other than removing nagging window prompting me to update. Such a disappointment...

    I really don't want to blame anyone but PF is full of bugs. I'm working with Network Attached Storage (QNAP) and PF is not able to do file management without problems. I don't use PF because of these problems and wait for the bug fixing.
    On the other side I have zero problems with Finder, so the problem is clearly PF.

    The problem with the terminal (this thread) is not solved after 27th Nov 2018. This is not a good sign. Whatever the reason is....

    Very frustrating!

    Regards
    Michael
