I updated to macOS Catalina which requires the user through pop-ups to allow any app trying to access the file system for the first time.
No such pop-up is appearing for Emacs. Running the script shared here,
does not seem to change anything. That is, Emacs and any shell running in it cannot access any file on the file system.
How can I restore the access?
My Emacs version is *GNU Emacs 26.1 (build 1, x86_64-apple-darwin14.5.0, NS appkit-1348.17 Version 10.10.5 (Build 14F2511))
Granting the Emacs app Full Disk Access in "General Settings -> Security & Privacy -> Privacy" does not solve the problem.
