Check out cocoaDialog: cocoaDialog is an OS X application that allows the use of common GUI controls such as file selectors, text input, progress bars, yes/no confirmations and more with a command-line application. It requires no knowledge of Cocoa, and is ideal for use in shell and Perl scripts (or Ruby, or Python, or... etc). It's a pretty simple ...

Since your screenshot references java where the app name usually is written, it suggests that it's the command-line version of Java that a given app is trying to run. If it appears at specific intervals, it either an app that you have open or a periodical job running automatically in the background (Which, ironically, could be the Java Updater itself). A ...

How about this: First, backup your iPhoto Library then quite iPhoto. Then, hold down option + command while starting up iPhoto. You should then get a prompt like this: Try selecting all of the options if you have time (it takes a while to repair) or just the last option "Examine and repair iPhoto Library file permissions if you only have a little bit ...

I don't know, I gave up on iPhoto a long time ago. But it sounds like you are using Lion; you might want to try repairing your user permissions. That can fix a lot of these sorts of problems. Also use Disk Utility to repair permissions on your disks, but that's less like to help here.

Once you find the file using Alfred, you can copy its path to the clipboard and paste that path into the Go to Folder tool of open/save dialogs. Find your file in Alfred, press the right arrow key to view the list of operations for that file, the up arrow key to go to the last option (Copy path to clipboard), and then the enter key to activate that option. ...

All you need to do is Sign OUT of the itunes store! If you are signed in, each time you fire up iTunes, it will try to login again and ask for your password. Sign out and it won't bother you!

Try to resetting your warnings, as suggested in this thread: Open iTunes/preferences/advanced, then hit the box in the middle that says "reset warnings".

Most likely it's Dropbox. It could be that it synced to another machine, which added some metadata to it automatically, then synced back to your machine, so it looks to Photoshop as if it's changed, when only the file's metadata has. Unless this happens consistently with files outside of synced folders, it's probably nothing to worry about

It sometimes happens if the app was installed by another user on your system. If thats the case try to switch ownership of the file. Found a similar post with a solution http://superuser.com/questions/38658/how-to-suppress-repetition-of-warnings-that-an-application-was-downloaded-from-t

I don't recommend Stealth Mode for this reason, constant pop-ups. Mac Help says: If you don’t either allow or deny access, the message remains displayed, and any attempts to connect to the app are denied. But in my experience, they dismiss instantly. Unless you want to manage the firewall with one of the third-party apps--which are certainly ...

Currently, it supports Apple­Script, Perl, PHP, Python, Groovy, Rexx, Ruby, shell scripts and Tcl—and if your favourite language is not included in this list: writing the ...

Yes, this would be fairly trivial with ssh to gain access to the Mac and then run whatever command you prefer. Is there a way to add items to notification center through terminal or other means? - which covers SeNotifier and the more general purpose terminal notifier which both leverage OS X's notification center app for the GUI. How can I trigger a ...

One option is to tell a background process like SystemUIServer to display the dialog: osascript -e 'tell application "SystemUIServer" display dialog "message" end activate application (path to frontmost application as text)' You can also tell the frontmost application to display a dialog, but it's not shown immediately if the application is not ...

It sounds like there is a permissions error somewhere. Run Disk Utility (from the /Applications/Utilities folder), select your boot drive and click on the "Repair Disk Permissions" button. I usually keep pressing the buttons until there are no errors left. Reboot and try running one of your problem apps. It may warn you again, but after that it should ...

If LyX utilizes the Open File dialog appropriately, you should be able to visit any path directly via the Finder shortcut ⇧⌘G. Tab completion works in the resulting path dialog. If LyX does not allow browsing via path, I would just copy the files to a temporary directory to bypass the difficulty. Sidebar Mac OS is full of very handy keyboard shortcuts ...
