fdo#70817 has been marked as duplicate of fdo#70412. One wonders how long it will be before all non-Apple software will be prevented from being installed on that platform? Sigh.

Have you tried right-clicking the app, and then choosing 'Open' (or 'Ouvrir')? That is the basic small step to open apps from unidentified developers introduced with OSX 10.7 or 10.8. If that doesn't help, setting the security option in the system preferences for allowed software to "all sources (App Store, identified developers and unidentified developers)" should do the trick.
