Installing Timbuktu Pro 8.8.5 on El Capitan

Security features in Apple’s new OS make it a little hard to get Timbuktu Pro running for the first time. Here’s how I managed:

  1. Copy the Timbuktu Pro folder to your Applications folder.
  2. Open terminal and run the following commands:
    xattr -d /Applications/Timbuktu\ Pro/Timbuktu\
    xattr -d /Applications/Timbuktu\ Pro/Timbuktu\\
    open /Applications/Timbuktu\ Pro/Timbuktu\\
    open /Applications/Timbuktu\ Pro/Timbuktu\

After that, you should be good to go!
