Similar to #293, some applications contained in a ZIP package appear to be unsigned (from an unidentified developer) after being extracted by Keka.

In fact, the app might be properly signed, but the system applies a quarantine flag that may render it unidentifiable. Since Keka is sandboxed, right now there's no permanent fix to that.

The reason in the comment below. There're some workarounds:

  • Simply right click (or control click) and "Open". That way you can force to open it.
  • Or manually remove the quarantine flag. Using the terminal:
    xattr -d -r com.apple.quarantine <APP_PATH>

This issue is connected with #215.
First reported via mail.

Turns out the Sublime Merge package contains extended attributes in ._ files. Keka does not apply those files, and that results in the signature check failure. Thanks to @alvarnell and @gingerbeardman for the feedback in #293.

It is recommended to archive applications in a supported file system HFS+/APFS the skip this kind of problems that do not just affect Keka.

Invalid packages, like the ones commented in this issue, will be properly extracted in 1.1.6.
