Hi, I'm using PF 7.6.2 on macOS Sierra 10.12 and every time I try to open the PF console I got this message:

Last login: Tue Mar 13 23:11:19 on ttys000
login: /usr/bin/bash: No such file or directory

bash is located on /bin/bash but even if I set that as the startup command on PF preferences, keeps showing this error message

any ideas?

    Please follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists: 

    1. Open your terminal and paste the following command to check if Path Finder has been slapped with the quarantined extended attribute:
      xattr /Applications/"Path"

    2. If you see returned as output from that last command, then go ahead and run this next command:
      xattr -d /Applications/"Path"

    You won't get any feedback or output from that command, but that's okay because you can just run the first command again to see for yourself if the attribute shows up again. It shouldn't, and now Path Finder is freed from Apple quarantine jail. Restart your PathFinder now. 

    Let me know how it goes.

    Best Regards,

    The quarantine flag was removed but I keep seeing the same error when the terminal widget opens
