This can happen with any app if you have formerly downloaded the same app (i.e. With the same internal "bundle id") from outside the App Store. Simply move the app to the Trash, restart the App Store app and try downloading the app again. Trashing an app does never make you lose your settings or even project. This is not Windows (where Uninstallers are ...

I find the best way to install Node.js is to use nvm, which allows you to install and manage multiple versions of Node. I use Homebrew for pretty much everything else, but Node is easier to use through nvm, since it doesn't use global folders - everything is in your home directory, and you can easily switch between Node versions. To install (check the ...

Mac OS X Lion didn't come with the built-in ability to create a USB installer since a small USB flash drive installer came with Mac's that shipped with Mac OS X Lion and was also sold by Apple on a small USB flash drive.

Not officially possible, yet—the Inkscape developers will have to remove the XQuartz dependency by switching to the native Gtk and Glib libraries for OS X, just like the GIMP team did a few years ago.

I have a (17-inch, early 2006) iMac which, like your Mac, is a 32 bit machine. I downloaded the file Fedora-Live-Workstation-i686-23-10.iso from Fedora. This is the "32-bit 1.3GB Live Image" found at this web page. Next, I burned the file to a RW DVD. I inserted the DVD in my Mac and held down the option key at startup. A DVD icon label "Windows" appeared. ...

FOUND IT! Hope this is what you were looking for -- er, a year later. Better late than never. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OS_X_Mountain_Lion (can also do same with other OSX versions) Scroll down to a chart that has the diff updates/combo updates, and on the far right column, there are links to download the each one. Hope this helps someone!

I've never done this before, but from the looks of it, the speeds will be limited by how fast your thumbdrives go. If I remember correctly, an El Capitan install is around 8-10 GB in size, so the 16 GB one you're installing to should be sufficient. USB 2.0 in reality can IO data at around 30-40 MB/s (although this depends on the make and model of your ...

No, you can't just copy the files from one to another drive and assume that the new drive will install El Capitan. There is a special command to create such an install drive, called createinstallmedia which runs in Terminal Download the OS X installer from the Mac App Store.
