Getting Gargoyle to work on Mac

I’m trying to install Gargoyle on a new machine. It appears to run, but whenever I open a story file, I get no window at all.

Here’s my system info:

$ uname -a

Darwin avery.local 15.6.0 Darwin Kernel Version 15.6.0: Thu Jun 21 20:07:40 PDT 2018; root:xnu-3248.73.11~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

I installed gargoyle using homebrew (brew cask install gargoyle)

$ brew info gargoyle
Error: No available formula with the name "gargoyle" 
Found a cask named "gargoyle" instead.

gargoyle: 2019.1
/usr/local/Caskroom/gargoyle/2019.1 (128B)
==> Name
==> Artifacts (App)

Can anyone tell me if they’ve seen this problem, or suggest some solutions to try? Thanks!

I’ve tested Gargoyle from the releases page ( but not as a homebrew cask. I suspect there’s some kind of signing problem. I’ll try to take a look later.

Thanks, Zarf!

I was able to run the 10.7 release from the github releases page but not the dmg. I don’t know if there’s a direct correlation between uname output and OS X version but I’m on version 10.11.6 (15G22010) if that’s a useful data point.

Ah, okay, that’s not surprising then. The homebrew version is certainly the same as gargoyle-2019.1-mac-nota.dmg, which wasn’t tested on anything earlier than 10.13.
