A fellow on the X-Plane forum reported getting this:

cd desktop/Ortho4XP-130

ianrobertson@Ians-iMac Ortho4XP-130 % python3

/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.8/bin/python3: can't open file '': [Errno 1] Operation not permitted

he is able to run python3.8.2 from the terminal and get it to work with the interpreter for a print('Howdy') but Ortho4Xp not.

is this a python thing, an ortho thing or some root cause from installing python?

Hi Glenn, this is probably not a bug in Python and more information about the error and the context would be needed if it was. Bugs must be reproducible to be looked at and fixed and your post does not contain enough information to do so.

You should redirect your friend to a forum like StackOverflow or the python-help mailing list to get help with his script.

I think that there is something odd going on with his python install.
He just tried to run a very simple python script that I made for him,

print('Hello there python interperter')

And he got the same error message again.  I do not know what more information you need, I sent the copy and paste terminal error text.

I think that I will ask him to reinstall Python. Which can be a scary process for him.

The error message you linked does not show an issue with the Python installation but the permissions are wrong on the '' file, that's what the error message says:

    can't open file '': [Errno 1] Operation not permitted

You have to check the permissions on the file to make sure the Python interpreter can read it.

This is not a bug in the Python interpreter which this bug tracker is for, the python-help mailing list and StackOverflow will give you the help you are looking for.

ok, fine.
So what permissions would indicate that "the Python interpreter can read it."
The Get Info screenshot that he sent me looks just like mine with regard to permissions. The long list in terminal shows nothing special. 

I am not having problems running the scripts.

As per your suggestion I have sent an email to python help, just looking for info regarding what you would consider the key permission settings.

It's because application on recent versions of MacOS cannot access files in some directories without being granted permission explicitly, a permission model similar to what iOS and Android.

You can grant them additional permission using System Preferences, see for example. All applications on recent version of MacOS behaves like this and this is not a bug in Python.

I think that you are referring to Gatekeeper.  Something that I have run into with various applications, such as certain utility files in Ortho4XP and even when adding aircraft to X-Plane(some of the developers refuse to become approved Apple developers).
