You can install via Homebrew with the following command: brew install homebrew/x11/pdf2image

The OS doesn't work with the external monitor until a certain phase during the OS installation, or something like that. Is the display completely broken or just the backlight? In the latter case the workaround is that the Apple logo on the lid of the MacBook Air allows you to shine a lamp through it to light up the centre part of the internal display just ...

Way too late, but there's an installer for this as well: https://github.com/martinpaljak/osx-ccid-installer

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 ...

It's inside the .pkg file (notice how large it is?). You'll need to unpack it using something like AnyToISO.

Shut down the computer, plug in the external monitor and keyboard and turn on the computer holding down command+R for a while. Then, close the lid of the laptop and it should display on the external monitor.

Apple's Bluetooth hardware controllers activate after all of the system's self-tests at boot complete and the EFI firmware loads successfully, which is indicated by the system playing the standard Mac startup sound. It is at this point that the system will accept boot variables, either stored in the PRAM or those being sent via keyboard inputs. These are ...

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. Quit the installer if it opens automatically after downloading. The installer will ...

In my experience, it takes about two days. Here's why I don't have an more precise answer: I actually don't yet possess a magsafe2 power supply and have been testing and restoring this computer with borrowed ones when I can get one from a friend intermittently. More than half way through the second day of install I had to return the power supply and the ...

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 ...

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 ...

Realise this is quite an old thread but was helpful for me today! After a bit of searching around I managed to do it - You can make a USB install disk by re-downloading the OS on a separate Mac but not installing it. (I'm currently running OS X Yosemite) You should end up with a 'Install Yosemite' file in your application folder. Get a program called Disc ...

The standard package format is the "pkg" format. It's not often used for applications, but it's fine for a terminal-only utility. My go-to tool for creating packages is called Packages. I haven't used it myself, but it looks like CMake supports PackageMaker, which is a third party tool for creating OS X packages. There's also the built-in pkgbuild utility. ...

Ok, in iTunes on the computer, it says "Downloaded". But on the device itself, go to App Store -> Updates -> Purchased -> My Purchases and select the "Not on this iPhone" tab. That shows all apps that didn't get transferred. Click the cloud icon to download them. This even preserved the apps' data, because I had done a backup first.

I just confirmed from Apple Support Center that it cannot install apps even free ones if there is not a credit card on file. So, if not, add the credit info and shipping address to your apple id in advance.

Yes I always found updating XCode from the AppStore a painful experience. Assuming you have a developer account, use this link and then find the version of XCode you need.
