Re: HomeBrew Users?

@nudge: Currently, Little Snitch rules require executables to be located at a specific path. We’re planning to add a new kind of rule that would only require a specific code signature. That wouldn’t help in this case, though, because the executables in question are not signed at all. We do not plan ...

Re: Confused about how to use Silent Mode

Hello David, There’s a preference in Little Snitch Configuration > Preferences > Advanced (the first checkbox): Advanced Preferences.png … but it seems like there’s a bug in Little Snitch Network Monitor that ignores that preference and instead always creates unapproved rules. So thank you for the b...

Re: Map not rendering

Let me reiterate that I do not recommend doing this. Anyway, here you go: You can find that hack by searching for “nvidia web driver fix” on github.com. The source code and Xcode project to compile a kernel extension are available there. For that to be loadable, a special kernel extension code signi...

Re: HomeBrew Users?

@nudge: Could you please clarify what exactly needs manual tweaking after updates by Homebrew? As I wrote in my previous message, if you’re using executables that have no code signature, Little Snitch is intended to work exactly the same way as if they were signed, with only these two exceptions: &s...

Re: Can't block incoming connections?

Silent Allow Mode allows connections in both directions (incoming and outgoing). Existing allow and deny rules are still honored in Silent Mode, though, so you could create three rules: one that denies any incoming connection, one that allows SSH connections from the local network and one that allow...

Re: Can't block incoming connections?

Regarding your question to Christian: “Any Process” simply means that it doesn’t matter where the process’ executable is located on disk. It still matters which user runs that process. Back to your original question, could it be that Silent Mode is enabled and set to allow new connections? You can c...

Re: Map not rendering

@newyork10023: That behavior where the whole Little Snitch Network Monitor window is completely transparent and the only thing you can see is the window’s shadow is actually a known issue that we’re in contact with Apple about. As you found out, this only happens when you use NVIDIA’s drivers. The i...

Re: Call Launchbar Actions from Terminal

Unfortunately, you can’t use search templates using this mechanism directly. But some searches, like Google, DuckDuckGo, or Wikipedia are actually implemented as Actions. You can call these just like in the previous example: tell application "LaunchBar" to perform action "DuckDuckGo&q...

No, none of the built-in actions implement this. What is it that you’re trying to do exactly?

It’s possible to do this using the Action URL Script Type of LaunchBar Actions. It’s documented here: m Assuming your LaunchBar Action is set up correctly (see the documentation or ask here, if you have any questions), you would then place a line like the following in your shell script that is calle...

Re: How to restore Launchbar from Time Machine

LaunchBar’s preferences are stored in ~/Library/Preferences/at.obdev.LaunchBar.plist
Just about anything else that you would want to restore (rules, habits, actions, …) is in ~/Library/Application Support/LaunchBar

Re: "Disk couldn't be ejected because Launchbar is using it" after High Sierra upgrade

Is this reproducible or just a one-off thing? It could be that LaunchBar is currently accessing the disk because it’s indexing something. Do you have any rules set up that could cause this, e.g. a Folder Indexing rule whose path points to a folder on that disk?
