Webstorm on Catalina - invalid paths etc.


Now that i've upgraded to Catalina, webstorm is complaining about various invalid paths like /usr/bin/git  e.g.:

: error: invalid active developer path (/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools), missing xcrun at: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/xcrun


I'm assuming under Apple's new regime I need to grant Webstorm full access to the file system? However...when i go to do that in Systen Preferences I can't find webstorn in the app folder.

Am I right about needing to grant WS full disk access, and if so, where is it?

Please make sure git works fine in the command line - may be some licensing or configuration issue after OS update.
If it does work, restart the IDE. If you use Toolbox app to start it, restart it first, then open IDE from it.
See https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-199553

Alternatively, switch from using Apple's git to vanilla git.
To do this install another gt client, e.g. via homebrew, and change the path to the git client in Preferences | Version Control | Git
