It shouldn't make your system unstable since it runs in its own "box" per se.. I have done it for other operating systems such as Ubuntu, Windows, and older versions of OS X.

You don't need Applescript to do this. You can create a Smart Group that does it for you.

Trying on OS X Yosemite 10.10.1: On OS X 10.8 it was possible to extract a photo from contacts on the Mac user interface. That did not work for me on the current version. Thus I went to look in the ~/Library. I found the picture I had taken under ~/Library/Application\ Support/AddressBook/Sources/(some long hex string)/Images/ Thus on Finder click the ...

For Repairs/Recovery: One is to use the build in recovery installed on your hard drive. To check for it use disk utility, but it is a hidden partition so make it non hidden first. Second one is to use the Internet Recovery. For clean install: is to create a bootable USB, with complete ML installer. (you need to have/purchase the ML installer package), ...

In my opinion, Time Machine is the best solution. If you do a full restore from backup, all your configurations are retained. You'll need to enable FileVault after the restore is finished. If you do a nuke-n-pave and a pristine install, migrating profile data, apps and settings invariably misses some stuff, e.g., VPN configurations, automatic wifi ...

I had the same problem. Fixed it by following the path to Python/frameworks. The folder in Versions was named 2.7. I changed the folder name to 2.6 and iPhoto opened right up.

Sure. Create a Keyboard Maestro macro that runs when the app launches and runs an AppleScript to turn DND on. Then create another one for when the app quits which runs another AppleScript to turn DND off. AppleScript can be found here: http://m.tuaw.com/2013/02/04/applescripting-notification-center-scheduling-do-not-disturb/

You can buy the ML from App store. Then install it on USB following these instructions from Apple-HT202796. Then hold the Option key during boot to select the start up disk. How ever, running from USB disk can be slow. Alternative->better solution is to create a new partition (size to be determined) and install the ML on it, if you are using the ML ...

System Preferences -> Sounds, and set Alert Volume to the minimum. (I'm using Yosemite, and this might not exist in earlier versions.)

My suggestion would be to run an application called Etrecheck and post the results either in your original question, or in a gist here and then update the question with a link to the gist. This could be a malware infection. The output from Etrecheck might help to confirm this. It is very suspicious to me that something is claiming to be an "Installer" but ...

I just went through this using this no-name adapter on OS X 10.10: http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00E38N7QE/ref=pe_386430_30332290_TE_3p_dp_1 The easiest way to use the USB adapter is to reboot. If you hold down the Option key while clicking on the Bluetooth menu icon, the MAC address of the adapter should be different. You can also verify in System Profiler. ...

Besides the Login Items (Open the Users & Groups pane of System Preferences), try this. In Terminal, type ls ~/Library/LaunchAgents You will see your "personal" launch agents. To see all the currently loaded agents, type this: launchctl list If you can identify the one you don't want, use the unload option: launchctl unload ...

I was able to fix this by restarting Finder (there was an option to do it inside TotalFinder, but now it's appeared after I restarted.). Restarting OS X should fix it tho.

It looks this is a duplicate of this question. I have the same situation - no cycling beyond endpoints (cycling backwards you can do via Ctrl + Shift + Tab).

I realize this is an old question, but I just discovered they recently added this feature to Reminders. On OSX Yosemite, it appears they've since added the "Custom…" option under the repeat menu, so you can now add the more fine-grained controls that you could only add via the Calendar app or other workarounds.

I found that by unchecking the box 'enable this account' under my apple ID account and then rechecking it, the messages app registered my phone number as an option for sending and receiving.

For those using a Windows-based machine with iTunes, you'll want to press CTRL + SHIFT + DEL to delete the songs you've selected from your playlist. I hope this helps.

Yes, simply run the installer from inside your existing OSX install.

Just to keep this thread up to date, it's no longer necessary to kill the Finder to show/hide dot files. This Applescript will do it by refreshing all window contents instead; it's also faster than relaunching the Finder. set newHiddenVisiblesState to "YES" try set oldHiddenVisiblesState to do shell script "defaults read com.apple.finder ...

There's a way to hide all "dot" files from Desktop with 3rd party app called XtraFinder. Go to Settings -> Features tab -> Hide dot files on Desktop Though I still didn't manage to hide all .DS_Store files and keep all other dot files visible, this is a pleasant improvement.

I was able to solve this by right-clicking Messages in the Dock, clicking on the unread messages that showed up in the resulting contextual menu (they happened to be SMSes added via Continuity), and responding to them.

further to Funball's comment... you need the UUID of the logical volume group and not the logical volume and then you should see something like Role: Logical Volume Group (LVG) UUID: 58E64811-56C5-4EBC-BE0B-5AF217AA2ABE LVG Name: Fusion LVG Version: 1 LVG Size: ...

I ran into this problem recently while attempting to install a Mountain Lion VM on my Mac Pro (10.10) using VirtualBox 4.3.2. I was trying to follow the instructions here, but I got stuck in the EFI boot sequence. I attached a screenshot, but I think its where you got stuck too. I tried the same process on my macbook pro laptop (with the same iso), and ...

Try JPG 2 PDF. It allows to convert up to 20 images at once. Moreover, it automatically optimizes images before converting to PDF. Then you can merge your 5 PDFs using PDF Joiner.

Seems you had some vision Douglas. Apple finally did come out with CloudKit that allows multiple users. Apple CloudKit provides both a public and a private data store.

Things to check for. Some Raid devices are set/Fixed for only one type of Raid 0 or 1. You should check the box and see if this can be used for anything other than Raid 1. Also there maybe software from WD on the drive that will change the Raid for you. If the WD is not hardware locked to be only a Raid 1 and you are unable to find WD software you can try ...

I have a Time Capsule, and had a lot of trouble with backups failing with an error "Backup Disk not Available". Rebooting the Time Capsule fixed the problem but only for one time backup. I resolved the problem by opening the AirPort Utility, selecting Disks, and changing the option "Secure Shared Disks" from "With a device password" (this was the Time ...

Have you tried writing a directory to your sdcard. Example. Directoryname_Read_write_exacute_system_port. The savvy can figure out the rest. Not for the lil league.
