Hazel doesn't work automatically Wed Jul 22, 2020 5:04 pm • by Momolino
Without any reason Hazel stopped working on its own, instead I have to manually run the rules (which then works fine).
This is what the logfiles tell me.

If I start the rules manually, this log file is generated:

Anyone with an explanation?

Can you launch System Preferences, go to "Users & Groups" then "Login Items". Does HazelHelper appear more than once there?

That means you have Hazel installed twice. Check Library/Preference Panes both under your home folder and at the root of your boot drive. I suggest throwing away both. If prompted to throw away settings/associated files, do not agree (keep the files). Install Hazel again after that.
