Yesterday I downloaded the latest Eclipse named Kepler to my Mac. I unzipped the package as usual and tried to launch it by clicking on the Eclipse file. I received the following error message:
After a quick search on the internet I found the solution in a bug report at Eclipse Bugs . It is the OS X GateKeeper that thinks that the file is corrupt and should be moved to trash. However, the problem is easy the solve. Just follow the following steps.
- Open up a shell
- Cd yourself into the eclipse directory.
- Check the attributes of the directory Eclipse.app/
$ xattr Eclipse.app/ com.apple.quarantine
- Remove the ‘com.apple.quarantine’ attribute.
$ xattr -d com.apple.quarantine Eclipse.app/
Now you should be able to launch Eclipse.
