ThinLinc cannot be opened on Apple M1

Hi I’m new to ThinLinc and I tried it run it on my MacBook, but however I tried I end up with receiving this message


I have installed Rosetta and I found no security warnings while opening.

Chip: Apple M1 Pro
MacOS: macOS Sonoma 14.2.1 (23C71)
ThinLinc: tl-4.15.0_3258-client-macos.iso

Hello @Tsengkun_Tso, and welcome to the community forum!

Thank you for your report. Is it correctly assumed that this is after you installed ThinLinc?

It’s my first time using ThinLinc. I dragged the application icon to the Application folder and tried to open it. And I also tried opening it immediately after decompression, both result in the same ‘can’t be opened’ warning :frowning:

That’s generally sufficient. Could you show us the output of:

ls -al "/Applications/ThinLinc Client.app/Contents/MacOS/tlclient"

That command has to be executed inside the Terminal application.

Thank you, that explains it. The tlclient file is not executable.

You can correct the permission with

chmod 755 "/Applications/ThinLinc Client.app/Contents/MacOS/tlclient"

Please try that and see if launching the client works.

I bit curious how that ended up like that. Are you using any third-party software to mount the downloaded ThinLinc Client .ISO file?

Kind regards,

Thank you so much, it works now!
Yes, I generally use The Unarchiver to mount files. After you mentioned it, I tried to use the DiskImageMounter to mount and then I opened ThinLinc successfully.

Using the Unarchiver results in a folder like this, and I didn’t realize it’s not executable from the looks of it :sweat_smile: and I dragged it into the Application folder anyway.

Again, huge thanks to you Martin!

Really glad to hear that you got it up and running! :slight_smile:

Please open a new thread if there’s anything else we can assist you with!

Happy ThinLincing!
