Using plistbuddy you can get some information and parse through it for the things you need. This will get all installed apps/utilities with their version numbers and put it in a text file for you. #!/bin/sh ( for i in /Applications/*.app do Printf "$i \t" | cut -c15-1000 /usr/libexec/plistbuddy -c Print:CFBundleShortVersionString: ...

There is a binary installer that you can download. See also the Getting Started - Installing Git of the git website: There are several ways to install Git on a Mac. The easiest is probably to install the Xcode Command Line Tools. On Mavericks (10.9) or above you can do this simply by trying to run git from the Terminal the very first time. If you don’t ...

Easiest solution is to create a script similar to the one above with just one line like this: tell application "Messages" to "clear unread messages"

Don't uninstall the old php as it is /usr/bin and so supplied by Apple and so might affect the OS and Apple might reinstall it as part od an OS upgrade. The binary install of php puts php in /usr/local/bin/php To use it either use the full path or alter your PATH environment variable to have /usr/local/bin before /usr/bin

Unlike the original questioner, I was trying to enable this effect. I wanted to switch between spaces where applications lived on different desktops. I just took a guess at: defaults write com.apple.dock workspaces-auto-swoosh -bool TRUE and killall Dock The two commands above worked like a charm to restore the effect.

Use Radio Silence. Very simple application, but does the job nicely.

I'm reloading the OS on a MacBookPro3,1, and was having the same issue. I inserted a cable into the FireWire 400 port and wiggled the cable (gently) and the problem went away, so it seems like it was just some junk built up on the connector...

It's a bug for sure, but the root-cause is a cached search in Finder which tries to find every file on the system and runs out of resource handles or something. It's an obvious use-case in Finder that I'm astonished nobody has spotted yet (but I have been a Unix/Linux system developer for 20 years). When Finder is doing it, you can both get rid of the ...

I had the same problem and I solved it by noticing that a wrong (corrupted or so) qlgenerator was used to generate the quicklook preview of plain-text files. To do this, you can type, in a terminal, qlmanage -m plugins and search for the public.plain-textstring (e.g. using grep), so you should get something similar to qlmanage -m plugins | grep ...

In the App Store a tool called "Foldery" is available. It doesn't change the color of the label, but the color of the folder icon itself. That does the job for me to separate more important things from the lesser important ones - at least on the Desktop. This only works for folders and not for documents, of course. But it might fill the void left by Apple's ...

Are you kidding. Once Apple takes away, it never comes back. But you can use TotalFinder or, a more elaborate solution, PathFinder, to get the label color for the folder and full row instead of that weeny little tag color dot. And there are little apps about, such as Colored Folder Creator from '08. that kinda still work ... it doesn't color the whole row, ...

In order to automatically load all scripts from a directory, put this in your ~/.bashrc file # autocompletes for f in /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d/*; do source $f done

Two things. The spotlight process that catalogs files has stopped (perhaps due to low disk space) so they yellow information is incorrect. It should show you a warning IMO that the catalog process failed or needs to update. The "Other" is a catch-all so you're seeing that. Copy 20 GB of files to an external drive (photo library, movies, virtual machines ...

I've seen this intermittently for a few releases now. I fix it by restarting the "Dock" process (which handles Spaces/MissionControl) using this Terminal command: killall Dock I don't know how to do that via the regular GUI, sorry. And before you run that command, do killall -s Dock to see the processes which will get killed. If only the one "Dock" process ...

You can use macports to install vim with gtk support: sudo /opt/local/bin/port install vim +huge +gtk2

There are many ways to do this. Here are a few... IMO The best way is to replace the actual AppName.icns file with the one from the older version, in this case it's: /Applications/iTunes.app/Contents/Resources/iTunes.icns Select the application bundle and control-click (right-click) > Show Package Contents, then navigate to the AppName.icns file shown in ...

MacVim maintainer here. It's an old question, but it deserves another answer for completeness: the new MacVim repo is located at github.com/macvim-dev/macvim, you can check the releases page there to download the most recent snapshot (old ones too). They're always compiled against the last version of OS X (I mean, I don't recompile the old snapshots to ...

Coming in late here. I've had this recurring problem, where FF disables Flash, then I forget how to get past the installer failure. The issue I've experienced is that the installer fails around the 90% mark with the error message that is the title of this thread. The solution that's worked for me is to find and download the full package installer. There's ...

Due to the fact that Apple provides upgrades and fresh installations of their operating systems for free, they would (in most cases) only provide support for the latest operating system and (in many cases) the one before it (in today's case (as of the time of this answer), OS X Yosemite and OS X Mavericks respectfully). If there is something wrong with ...
