TRIM isn't enabled on non-Apple OEM SSDs in OSX. Perhaps garbage collection is not happening. You can find a lot of sites that explain how to enable TRIM in OSX. I haven't provided a link as they are plentiful and you may wish to use a site you're more comfortable with. Use keywords: "enable trim support OSX terminal" This link explains it but you ...

Tried the other solution on Mavericks... doesn't seem to work. This did work for me with windows 8.1 64 bit: http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/62700/49601

In my case it was the Maven Failsafe Plugin that caused the annoying window focus stealing of ForkedBooter, and setting the JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS variable in .bashrc didn't help. This fix applies to both Failsafe and Surefire (although in my case, Surefire wasn't stealing focus). In your pom.xml, add a <argLine>-Djava.awt.headless=true</argLine> ...

Potential relationship I didn't find any evidence that this XQuartz loss of focus is related to ssh. On the other hand I found a heavy relationship between this XQuartz loss of focus and the launch of: Google Software Update (com.google.Keystone.Agent) Analysis 2 tools help during this investigation: watch activations Python script → [...] ...

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.

The only way to solve this is to get a TV with 1920x1080 resolution. What you are seeing in the top picture is the your Mac outputting to the native resolution of the TV - which is a resolution usually reserved for screens 11-13" in size. What you are seeing in the image below is what happens when you show a 1920x1080 image scaled on a TV with only ...

You'd better create another user: for work and personal.

I think @Buscar웃 is right, you need to fetch your mail before you know how much mail is in your inbox. I think you can use your Terminal for that, and with the combination of 'GeekBench' it might even look pretty. A common mailclient for OS X terminal is mail, it is already installed, but unfortunately I have no clue on how to configure it correctly. ...

In order for system to know the unread account of the "other" email account it has to access it! So you can not go around that. Showing the last accessed count has little use, it could be days old.

On my MBA- 10.9.4 the "on my mac" mail folders are in the ~/Library/Mail/V2/Mailboxes/ The Library folder is hidden since OS X Lion, so use the Finder's "Go To Folder" menu in the "Go" menu and enter that address.

Another thing to ensure when trying all these 'tricks' is to plug the laptop into a power supply. Because the card reader draws power if the battery is not delivering enough current to the reader it can cause issues. For example, mounting of problematic USB hard disks can be resolved by plugging the laptop to the power supply.

This is very helpful because I had a similar problem with the Flash update released in June 2014. I could download the update, etc., but it wouldn't install. No luck with uninstalling the program and trying to start anew. I successfully installed Flash a bit ago by clicking on the link to version 13.0.0.223 in the answer above.

This thread on discussions.apple.com presents an approach that involves twiddling the firewall and NAT rules in the terminal. I haven't tested that.

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 ...

Uh....for some reason I can't respond to Buscar up there who is talking about the whole <key>NSUserNotificationAlertStyle</key> thing, in response to "App Store Is Annoying". If you go to info.plist in the package contents, and it looks all XML-y, I think the trick to this is to find that line with NSUserNotificationAlertStyle inside the ...

Think I found an answer: https://jamfnation.jamfsoftware.com/discussion.html?id=6025 sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow DSBindTimeout -int 8 Changes the bind timeout to 8 seconds. Our bind happens within 3-4 seconds over ethernet, so we figure double it and add an extra second should be enough for an absolutely unscientific ...

to create a new file in one click, you want to use a droplet (a button inside the finder toolbar, which is accessible from any finder window). After searching the web for more than one hour, I finally found THE ULTIMATE LINK which explains you to do just that, here you go: http://www.screenr.com/cNH and the text version: ...

Why simple when you can do it complicated. You can just drag'n'drop it from Trash to where you wana have it (probably the Applications Folder cause it is an Application).

I've found the solution. Two commands are needed in sequence: sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.smbd.plist sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.smb.server.plist EnabledServices -array disk

Verify that your iMac can run the older version of Mac OS X. You can see what versions can be run by searching for your specific model of iMac at EveryMac Sometimes I have seen that even if a Mac was shipped with an older version of Mac OS it is difficult to downgrade due to firmware upgrades that make the system incompatible with older releases. I haven't ...

In my opinion some more infos would be great to help you: What do you mean with "Mavericks Developer installed already"? Does it mean it is a beta Mavericks installation only available for developers? Or do you mean XCode is installed? Why do you want to downgrade to 10.7? "and other things don't work": what is not working? I do not see the connection. Why ...

It seems that in my case I was able to repair the problem while writing my question, by reading the man pages more closely and running the following command: sudo -k This command revokes all outstanding sudo permissions and forces you to re-enter your password the next time that sudo is used. However, I've been unable to discover why this issue presented ...

The system's quarantine feature is a good security measure so I would not recommend this to everyone, but if you are confident in the files you download and run on your system then one option is to disable quarantining altogether. To do this, open the Terminal and run the following command, then reboot the system: defaults write com.apple.LaunchServices ...

Don't ask me why - but after downloading it the fourth time the installation process went fine. Without any error messages or warnings or whatever. What's different to the moment when asking the question and the moment where the installation went fine: FileVault disabled. Logged out and logged in again to App Store before redownloading the update the ...
