Deluge showing python popup at each launch

Hi!

Installed Deluge onto my Mac. Now every time when I open Deluge a following window pops up:

I've answered "Allow" and checked firewall settings. All seem to be correct but I still get asked the same thing every time.

How to fix this?

Deluge: 1.3.13
OSX: 10.11.6

Thanks

According to https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201642, under "Automatically allow signed software to receive incoming connections" section, it states,
Some apps check their own integrity when they are opened without using code signing. If the firewall recognizes such an app it doesn't sign it. Instead, it the "Allow or Deny" dialog appears every time the app is opened. This can be avoided by upgrading to a version of the app that is signed by its developer.

Sorry I don't have a solution for your issue but I thought this might be helpful.

I just saw this same issue on a Plex Forum. They forced a code sign on the app and apparently it worked:

Code: Select all

sudo codesign --force --sign - /Applications/Deluge.app/

It prompted them one more time to "Accept", then never returned.

Admittedly I haven't tried it so please use at your own risk.

EDIT: Are you running deluge in a shell? The above obviously assumes the .app, but I'm realizing your screen grab says "python" and not "Deluge".
