Edit: Read this Apple Discussions article. I think this is the same problem you are having. I think I got it. I was sitting at the screen when a message popped up with the voice over. There was a little spanner icon in the top right which allowed me to turn off this feature.

As is mentioned in the question comments, this is not possible in iTerm 2. It is possible in the built-in Terminal.app, but that was not the question. While this isn't an optimal solution, a script has been written to implement this in iTerm. I did not write the script nor have I tested it, so I cannot verify the effectiveness of this solution.

Just discovered this glitch going from Lion to Mavericks. A good work around is to map it to 3 finger click. That seems to work fine. Note, I'm using BetterTouchTool which is a much more powerful gesture and keyboard binding tool. Since it experiences the same issue, it's likely this is a bigger problem than just buggy software.

I am running windows 8.1 on a macbook air 2012 and the screen mirroring is working flawlessly (1920 X1080). The TV connects as a projector under devices and you can either duplicate, extend or display on tv only. If you really want the screen mirroring function you should install windows 8.1 which supports this out of the box.

I'm not 100% sure, but it seems to be caused by Firefox. If Finder and Terminal are the first windows to be opened after booting the system, they look fine. If I begin by starting Firefox instead, windows opened afterwards become corrupted.

The "@" means that the file has extended attributes. You can see them with the xattr command. The "1" is the number of links to that file. In most cases, for normal files, this will be "1". For directories, it is the number of files/subdirs + 2 (the two actually represents the directory itself, and the parent directory).

I was also met with this speech popup a few weeks ago. It can be turned on or off system-wide, but is sometimes app-specific for when it appears. For me, it was because I was using the Chess app, which uses "Speakable Items" so that the player can speak moves. I had to uncheck "Allow Player to Speak Moves" in the Chess preferences pane. Depending on the ...

After the OS X Mavericks v10.9.4 Update, window corners have returned to their previous glory. Update notes don't mention any issue of this kind, so I guess it might have been fixed as a side effect of running the system updater. EDIT: Aaand the corners are ugly again. It's really weird.

AFAIK you could simply move the rule from your current profile into your 'Effective in all profiles' Profile. But rules in your current active profile will override your 'Effective in all profiles' rules which means they have a higher precedence. And allowing outgoing connections for your browser on http and https should not be a big security risk IMHO.

YES. You should be 'paranoid' about this. I had a quick fix to my laptop- no need to get into my files. They ended up taking an extra day...

ILIV, Yes, there is definitely some sort of problem with OS X in regards to DHCP and DNS.

This is not possible, since the OSX GUI doesn't run on X Server. Furthermore, there is no support for simultaneous desktop logins. You could theoretically run an X server on OSX, but you'd be able to run only apps that use XQuartz, not native OSX apps. You could allow him to access your Mac via Screen sharing or VNC, but it wouldn't support multiple users.

The Apple logo lights up when the screen is on, so what's happening is that your screen isn't turning itself off. This usually happens when the power management extensions aren't loaded in the operating system, and issues with sleep are one of the biggest indicator of this.

I wonder if your Spotlight index is corrupt or Spotlight is turned off for the volume, and thus classifying all of the files as "Other". Try rebuilding the Spotlight index.
