macOS keeps asking for permission

i get this dialog every few seconds / minutes. yes i’ve said yes, and yes i’ve set the permissions to allow.

Seems to be the same issue as here

It will maybe (just maybe) be fixed in the next release. The reason for that it’s maybe is because a lot has been rewritten regarding macOS permissions, but no one who has this issue has tested if that rewrite fixes the issue or not.

This is an issue with OSX 10.14.16 and often accompanies stuttering. If you turn off the Window watcher it goes away. Alternatively you can launch activity watcher like this and the problem goes away:

Navigate to /Applications/ and launch ./aw-qt

how do i launch it from terminal so i can then quit the terminal and leave it running?
