Show in Finder not working in Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

Post by jackg » Tue Oct 02, 2012 11:10 am

Hi,

OS: Mountain Lion 10.8.2
Launchbar Version: 5.3.1 nightly (940)

Show in Finder not working in Launchbar while it is working from Dock
Finder CPU usage got high after multiple file operation using Launchbar and I relaunched the finder. now Show in finder is not working and Launchbar debug mode doesn't show anything in the logs.
the solution is to restart the machine but eventually the Finder will crash and the problem shows.
Any suggestion?

regards

Dae

Apple broke "Show in Finder" in the 10.8.2 update (as well as many other things which involve communication between apps).

The only workaround is to restart appleeventsd from time to time either in Activity Monitor or using the following command in Terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo killall -KILL appleeventsd

Thank you for this solution. Hopefully this won't be required when 10.8.3 hits, but it does the job now.
