Just posting this here as a reminder for myself, but maybe it is useful to other 😊 

When downloading fpcupdeluxe for macOS, then you may run into the dreaded "” is damaged and can’t be opened" error message. I've had this only on my M1 Mac, but this may happen on Intel hardware as well of course.

* this may apply to other applications as well, when not downloaded from the Apple Store.

A fis for this, is running this in Terminal:

xattr -cr

which clears recursively the extended attributes of the files in the .app bundle and resolves the issue.
