I have figured out a solution to this issue. Go to the terminal and enter the following. diskutil cs delete “Put Your Logical Volume Group UUID Here” Ex.8DD219E1-AA47-4F4C-A9DF-72BE79143B43 You can get your UUID from the About This Mac-More Info-System Report-Storage Make sure to select the proper drive and you want the UUID for the Logical Volume ...

Its a probable RAM issue. Take out the RAM, clean them up, and put it again in the slots. It also happens when one of the RAM gets faulty, or is not properly attached.

This is currently not possible. Apple does not provide a way to turn this off. Note that if your swiping is begun whilst still zoomed slightly, the tab switcher is not invoked. See this animation: This is a pretty large GIF — it'll take a while to load and be smooth.

.DS_Store is used by OS X to store directory information used by Finder such as icon position, etc. In OS X any file name that starts with a "." is hidden, so to hide the .DS_Store file you can use the terminal command: sudo defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles NO Basically, you can ignore it. If you are copying a directory to a flash ...

Apparently, it was due to an old Safari update that accidentally showed the .DS_Store file.

Apple recommends to set JAVA_HOME to “/usr/libexec/java_home“. What worked for me was wrapping this around $(). So I ended up configuring JAVA_HOME like $(/usr/libexec/java_home) with the following commands: vim ~/.bash_profile export JAVA_HOME=$(/usr/libexec/java_home) source ~/.bash_profile

First thing: Never configure or make as root, unless there is a very specific reason. Second thing: In make: *** [/Users/~/build/TextMate/Frameworks/SoftwareUpdate/fixtures/secret.pem] Error 1: This /Users/~/ looks HORRIBLY WRONG! To change the ownership of the files back to you run sudo chown -R $(whoami) ~/build/TextMate Now do a make clean ...

It looks like openssl was installed in /usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.1g/bin/openssl and needed to be symlinked to the desired location. The following command accomplished that for me: ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.1g/bin/openssl /usr/local/bin After that command was run, 'which openssl' returned "/usr/local/bin/openssl" and 'openssl version' returned ...

This command should show you where any openssl binaries may be located on your system: locate openssl | grep bin/openssl For homebrew, make sure you have /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin in your $PATH. You can check your current path setting by issuing echo $PATH.

Instead of using "Get Specified Text" then filtering paragraphs, you can use "Get Specified URLs" and direct this straight to Get Image URLs from Webpage: Alternatively, if you want to parse text, you can use Extract URLs from Text: Download Workflow

If only the arrow comes up when you hold down option it most likely means there's some kind of hardware issue. You may be able to repair it using the Disk Utility in Internet Recovery (Hold down ⌘ command+⌥ option/⌥ option+R while booting) , but I'd advise in to looking to getting this thing serviced or repaired. Sounds like you've got a bad HD. If all ...

Here are your Options. We assume your Boot sector is somehow damaged. We further assume your hard drive is not damaged. Since you installed Mountain Lion you might be in luck. When you install Mountain Lion or Lion, the installer creates an invisible, bootable, 650MB partition—a portion of a drive the operating system treats as a separate volume—on your ...

I ended up just imaging my SSD boot drive using Disk Utility and then restoring that image onto my secondary boot drive. Worked fine and I am now testing out Mavericks without risk to my old system if I decide I need to migrate back.

I'm not sure if you ever got this resolved, but I just had pretty much the same problem in Mavericks. The only difference is that, rather than being stuck on that blank screen, the screen would show up, disappear, ask me to log in again, and repeat in a never ending loop. What I did to solve this was quit out of Chess, but leave Game Center open. This then ...

I am having a similar issues (related to R documentation), which boil down to the same thing. From an XQuartz window, if you right click (or CTRL r-click) to get to the VT fonts menu, then select UTF8-fonts and UTF8-encoding, this will probably fix your problem. However, I have not yet found a way to configure these by default, although I have found this: ...

You can use TimeMachine to save data you need (by default all information include entire system will be saved) and then restore it to new HDD.

Cloned drives are generally not a problem. You don't want to do a simple drag/drop. SuperDuper from ShirtPocket will clone your drive and ensure it's bootable. CarbonCopyCloner will do the same. There are some more details in How can I get my laptop's existing system onto a new replacement drive?

Yes. Off-line dictation is possible since OS X 10.9, Mavericks. Starting with OS X 10.9, you can now use dictation offline, by checking the "Enhanced Dictation" box in the Dictation system preferences.

If KPs continue after safe boot, then most likely they're hardware related. Run the Apple Hardware Test suite, extended tests at least twice, followed by Rember. See this link https://discussions.apple.com/message/21725938#21725938

Oddly, the Krungthep font currently supplied with OS X, while a Thai language font, has the latin characters drawn in Chicago. I found this out here while trying to figure out why the Krungthep chosen by a non-technical friend for the headings of her website design looked so familiar...

The sudo is failing because the _www user has /usr/bin/false as its shell, causing the session to end as soon as you've switched user. The solution is to use the -s option, which will execute your current shell instead of _www's shell: $ sudo -s -u _www Password: $ whoami _www Just tested on a 10.9 system but it should work fine on 10.8.

You could use dtrace to determine what is creating the file, say using iosnoop.d which runs under dtrace will reveal which applications are using the disk and what files they are reading or writing. This would imply catching its creation or write access, "live". If that doesn't reveal who's created the file it could be because the process is communicating ...

If you open the dropdown, you can choose edit, there you can create a new location. In the new location, all settings should be on default, so your 802.1X setting shouldn't be there anymore.

To back up a disk image, you back up the .dmgfile itself, instead of the virtual disk the system shows you. However, unless the disk image is a sparse bundle image. Time machine will have to backup the entire disk every time the disk changes.

The same thing happened to me, but then I ran brew uninstall gnuplot;brew install gnuplot --with-x and installed XQuartz.

I solved my own problem - but figured I'd answer for anyone else searching for the same thing. I run CodeKit to help minimise CSS and JavaScript when building websites. The program works beautifully, but I had it monitoring all the sites (25 or so) I'd built over the past year or so for changes when it was open. I figure this was causing it to open (or at ...

OS X can write to NTFS volumes. However, it's a hidden switch, and it's not supported. Use it at your own risk. OS-level support for a file system is a major technical investment. It's not just about knowing the rules. There are fundamental differences between HFS+ and NTFS, such as characters supported in the name and maximum file size. When writing ...

For what it is worth, I generally recommend to people who don't want to update their OS that they use chrome. Apple only updates safari when they update the entire os, so you are better off with a third party solution for a browser.

You can't exaclty "downgrade". You habe to create a bootable drive with your installer, boot from that drive, reformat your internal (backup first!) and then install 10.7 Make sure your computer supports it first.

I don't think Calendar will automatically change the time zone. In fact, it probably shouldn't, otherwise it could be confusing if the user didn't notice it has changed. However there are two things you can easily do: Enable Set time zone automatically using current location in System Preferences > Date & Time > Time Zone. This will ensure that the ...

You don't need to switch to runlevel 5, this only means that the server boots into the GUI, not that it's useable. You can use runlevel 3 and launch remote X sessions. Furthermore, you'll have to use xterm to start the SSH session, not Terminal.app. If you run XQuartz it should open it by default. Then run ssh -X root.website.com to open the session and ...

Yes you can do it. Go to Settings > Keyboard > Text. Click the + sign on the bottom left to add a new text replacement. In the Replace column, put the word you want OS X to stop autocorrecting (no spaces are allowed). In the With column, put the exact same word you put in the Replace column. Voila. You're done. This has worked flawlessly for me ...
