“Eclipse” is damaged and can’t be opened

Posted by peter on Saturday, August 10, 2013

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:

  1. Open up a shell

  2. Cd yourself into the eclipse directory.

  3. Check the attributes of the directory Eclipse.app/ $ xattr Eclipse.app/ com.apple.quarantine

  4. Remove the ‘com.apple.quarantine’ attribute. $ xattr -d com.apple.quarantine Eclipse.app/
