SourceTree Custom Action on Mac returns "launch path not accessible"

I've seen there are some answered threads, but this still doesn't work for me.

I even tried putting in dummy actions like:

`echo $PATH`


`/usr/local/bin/git --version`


and the error is still the same.


I'm using "system git" 

> git version 2.17.0

I was having the same problem and figured it out:

for your custom action, just put `git` in script target, and put the rest in parameters.

e.g. I was trying to create a custom action for `git up`, and I got it working by putting `git` in script target and `up` in parameters.

You can fix this by giving your user rights to execute the file:

chmod +x


I am having this issue too now, with scripts that worked a few weeks ago before I updated to 4.0.2.

I can't even set environment variables, much less running a script that is part of my workflow that I would really like to add instead of bouncing back and forth between SourceTree and terminal (I've gotten my repo into weird states mixing between the two, especially if there is a commit message already present from Terminal when I go to SourceTree).

This makes less inclined to use the GUI altogether and is very annoying.

I am having this problem too but not with custom scripts. I get this error when I try to open any local repository.

Using: Mac OS v11.1 (20C69), Git v2.30, SourceTree v4.0.2 (236)

Any help or ideas for resolving this?

I solved my problem by completely uninstalling SourceTree--I mean complete uninstall of every related SourceTree file on the Mac system or it won't work.

Then I downloaded and installed it and reconnected my local and remote repos. It was a lot of work but it solved the problem. Not sure why this worked but it did.

I can reproduce this. There could be something we are missing. Please file a ticket on and we will investigate it. 

Manjunath, thanks for replying and confirming the issue!


I found this as the most appropriate place to post this issue/start the discussion. I'm not familiar with JIRA and it's confusing to me when I use it. Too much information that I don't need/care about in the given moment (severity, priority, environment, estimate, etc.). It looks more like it's team oriented, or oriented towards people actually working on the code, not someone reporting the issue from the outside.

This repels me from submitting issues, and I believe that both of us would like to see SourceTree become better and better. If you could provide easier way to submit an issue, that would be great. Otherwise, you could also submit it yourself there. You're much more familiar with the project and all those (to me) unknown form fields I just filled in/skipped to submit this issue there. I'd like to the issue here, but after submitting the issue, I couldn't find it anymore...


Thanks for your time! <3
