TotalFinder Injection Troubles

This feature is implemented since TotalFinder 1.13.7.

During startup, TotalFinder can sometimes detect that it does not have correct permissions to control Finder:

totalfinder automation permissions

Normally when you go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Automation you should see something like this:

totalfinder automation permissions

Either you or someone else unchecked it. Or TotalFinder lost the permission for some other reason. Or TotalFinder was never given this permission in the first place. Anyway, please consider enabling it and then hit Continue on the “Automation Permissions” prompt.

Don’t see it under Automation?

Ah, too bad. You might be experiencing a bug which causes this permission to be missing in the UI.
