Question: Python tkinter on macOS 10.14.6 frozen/compiled with py2app or pyinstaller
I wanted to inform Apple that Apple/Python users are experiencing the following issue:
Python programs that use Tkinter and are "frozen" as a standalone .exe app using pyinstaller or py2app will immediately crash and return the user to the login screen when run. The error occurs on both the first macOS 10.14.6 upgrade and the supplemental 10.14.6 upgrade that came out a few days later. The following sites are all reporting essentially the same thing:
It does not seem to matter when or what version of python3 the program was frozen under. The issue immediately occurs after the os upgrade.
As one site reports: the error first occurred with "macOS Catalina 10.15 that was released before 10.14.6 (beta 4, I think) but was then apparently resolved in the beta that arrived after10.14.6 (beta 5)." (see https://github.com/ContinuumIO/anaconda-issues/issues/11165)
So it appears these programs all work fine on any macOS version before 10.14.6.
Can we expect a fix for 10.14.6? Or are we all going to have to wait till Catalina comes out?
