Help installing mGear 3 on a Mac

Hello

I am new to mGear and I am trying to install it for Maya 2018 on a Mac as explained here. I am getting the following messages:

“mgear_solvers.bundle” cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified. macOS cannot verify that this app is free from malware.

“weightDriver.bundle” cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Yeah, I bet that’s happening because you upgraded MacOS to Catalina. Is that right? It has heightened security restrictions on apps and plugins.

I got an answer from Dhruv Govil at Apple to run this command in the Terminal, which removes the “quarantine” flag from when it gets downloaded:

sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine /PATH/TO/THE/MGEAR/SOLVERS/DIRECTORY/

I can’t personally test this because I haven’t upgraded yet.
