Fix cannot find driver - Creative SoundBlaster Omni Control Panel issue
# If you receive the following error while trying to open the Creative SoundBlaster Omni Control Panel
# ==============================================================
# Cannot start the app because the audio driver cannot be found
# ==============================================================
# then this is the solution:
# In the command line execute:
sudo kextload -b com.Creative.driver.TruStudioPCUSBAudioPlugin
# this will likely fail with the following error:
# com.Creative.driver.TruStudioPCUSBAudioPlugin failed to load - (libkern/kext) system policy prevents loading; check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8).
# so now you need to do the following:
# - Open System Preferences / Security. Move this window to 0,0 in your screen
# - Open Script Editor and paste the following script
# ```appleScript
# tell application "System Events" to click at {555, 457}
# ```
# keep in mind that the location of the Allow button might be at a different position depending on screen or resolution
# Try again the following command
sudo kextload -b com.Creative.driver.TruStudioPCUSBAudioPlugin
# If everything goes well this time this will be loaded without issue
# Now you can open the SoundBlaster Omni Control Panel
