After installing macOS Big Sur, you may run into issues getting Flutter set back up for development. Due to the security enhancements added to Catalina and increased in Big Sur, you may run into macOS blocking the execution of some development tools like Flutter and Dart.
If you run into the error message: “dart” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.
You simply need to:
Open system preferences/Security & Privacy/General
Unlock by clicking the clock in the bottom left and enter your admin password
Where it has the warning that “dart” was blocked, click “allow anyway”
If you run into trouble installing Rmagick on Ubuntu, it is most likely because you do not have the dev libraries installed that are needed by the rmagick Ruby Gem. Run the following commands in your terminal and everything should work fine.
If you are getting a build error from Gem when trying to install the PostgreSQL gem called ‘pg’ and you are using the PostgreSQL App instead of installing PostgreSQL via Brew or some other method, it is because Gem cannot find the PostgreSQL config in the standard locations. To correct this you need to provide Gem with the path to the config file stored within the PostgreSQL App’s internal folder structure.
Note: the latest version of the PostgreSQL App, at the time of this writing was 9.4, your version may be different. Make sure you change the 9.4 in the config path in the command above to the one you are using or it will not work. You can verify the path by opening Finder, going to the Applications folder, locating Postgres.app, right clicking and selecting ‘show package contents’. This will open up the app’s folder structure in Finder.
