Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

___ “is an application downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it?” is a warning dialog that appears when you open an application that you downloaded from the Internet. When you install those software titles with automation, you can clear the attribute that causes the prompt, so you don’t get a lot of confusion from end users. TO do so, use the xattr command, using -d to delete the attribute. Here, we’re going to do so recursively, using the -r option and finally defining the application:

sudo xattr -d -r /Applications/
