For some reason, Finder is no longer running and will not relaunch using conventional methods.
I can, however, get it running with the following command in the Terminal:
prompt$ open -g /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/MacOS/Finder &
Despite the fact that I'm ending the command with an ampersand and passing the
-g flag to
open, the resulting Finder opens attached to a completely new Terminal window that, when closed, causes the Finder application to also exit.
How can I relaunch the Finder from the Terminal, ensuring that it will run in the background without spawning a new shell?
