MacOS 10.14.6 Karabiner-Elements不生效

Posted by Yuankun Li on 2020-07-29

参考Does not work on MacOS Catalina #1867

For some reason the permission prompt is not showing up for me when I open Karabiner-EventViewer. And EventViewer says “EventViewer failed to observe keyboard devices”. So I cannot find out a way to use
saagarjha’s method as stated above.

  1. add karabiner_grabber and karabiner_observer to “Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility” apps.
  2. And after sudo killall-ing both processes, Karabiner-Elements is working for me again.
$ sudo killall karabiner_grabber
$ sudo killall karabiner_observer

In order to fix the F-key/media playback buttons, I needed to add the following entries to the Security & Privacy > Privacy > Input Monitoring list:

/Library/Application Support/org.pqrs/Karabiner-Elements/bin/karabiner_grabber
/Library/Application Support/org.pqrs/Karabiner-Elements/bin/karabiner_observer
