I have a console app that is part of a lightroom plugin. The app is code signed using
xattr -rc PATH
codesign --force --options runtime --deep ....
Lightroom plugins are a folder/package and this console app resides in a subfolder.
A simple zip of the folder has been fine up until now as Catalina does not accept it.
I sent the zip for notarization, which worked but was unable to get the stapler to attach to anything.
I then put it in dropDMG and could only use the developer certificates and not the installer ones. Either way, I could notarize it ok but Catalina still said the console app was untrusted.
I then put it in a pkg file and attached the mac installer certificate and notarized and it installed ok.
I also tried the above with just the console app, with no luck.
Surely there is a simpler way to get console apps onto Catalina?
