Troubleshooting

  • "pot" can’t be opened because the developer cannot be verified.

  • If you cannot find the above options in Privacy & Security, or get error prompts such as broken files with Apple Silicon machines. Open Terminal.app and enter the following command (you may need to enter a password halfway through), then restart pot:

    bash
    sudo xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/pot.app
    sudo xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/pot.app

If you encounter a "Segmentation fault" or Pot fails to start, please try adding the environment variable WEBKIT_DISABLE_DMABUF_RENDERER=1 in /etc/environment (or any other place where environment variables can be set) to disable the use of DMABUF.
