Murus export configuration not working

Post by jporten » Fri Nov 03, 2017 4:05 pm

Murus 1.4.1.1, tested on macOS 10.12 and 10.13. "Export configuration settings..." is not working. I get the return dialog confirming that the export has happened, but no files are created anywhere in my filesystem.

This is because Murus 1 runs as root, thus when you see a SavePanel you are seeing it from the point of view of the root user. So if you select to save your files to, say, Desktop or Documents Folders, you are saving them to root's desktop or root's documents. And trying to search for them from your normal user won't get any results because you have no permissions to see root's home...
So, everytime you export files from Murus, please browse you Macintosh HD from the root, then follow your user path like /Users/jporten/Desktop/ and you will find your files :)
