Keyman configuration not working, nor typing

I want to use Keyman to type in Nubian but have failed in even making the application work. I am using MacOs, everything should be fine. It is in the taskbar, I activated all settings manually under privacy, Keyman is present in input sources and yet, I still cannot type, nor am I able to add a language as the configuration slot that should be seen once on the tab of Keyman input, isnt there. In fact, I took a video to see it in slow mo, it briefly appears with three dots and in a mili-second it disappears.
I tried restarting the PC numerous times on different occasion, uninstalling and installing again Keyman, using the Terminal to reboot the app after new changes… nothing. Nor do I find anything in the community that can help with this issue. Hope someone has an answer.
Cheers and thanks.

Did you set up the permissions for the Keyman app?

Welcome Choumsa – sorry you’ve not been able to get Keyman working despite all your attempts. I’m not quite clear on what you’re seeing in the Keyboard/Input Source menu. It sounds like the Keyman section of the Keyboard menu is not appearing correctly when you select it? It should look something like this:

Maybe you can reply with a screenshot, so I can see exactly what you are experiencing. Are you unable to select a Keyman keyboard from the menu or does something go wrong after you’ve selected one?

Also, what version of macOS and what version of Keyman are you using?


Hi Both, Thanks for your replies!
@Steve_White yes, all the permissions have been granted to Keyman except for files as I somehow cannot add other programs for this. The add button is muted and faded…
@Shawn Thanks for your message, indeed this is what I do not have. I will send you two screenshots. First being what it looks normal, not giving me any options, and second screenshot which I took in slowmo of it loading but then failing. I have the latest Keyman version 16.0.139. My mac runs on MacOs Catalina 10.15.7.
