Use rsync for this purpose. If it is interrupted for any reason, then you can restart it easily with very little cost. And being rsync, it can even restart part way through a large file. It can exclude files easily. The simplest way to preserve most things (permissions, symlinks, edit dates, etc) is to use the -a or --archive flag to archive. To see your ...

To know which shell are you using, use the following command: $ echo $SHELL It will return something like: /bin/bash or /bin/zsh After you know the shell, if the file .bashrc or .zshrc doesn't exist in your home directory (echo $HOME to find out), just create it. If you are using bash, you may have a file called .bash_profile where you can put your ...

Yup, the system will recreate it automatically. Actually about .Trash, it is located on every drive you will connect to your Mac and where you will delete some files. Deleted files on external drive won't show in your local .Trash.

Searching Google for "homebrew command-not-found" (without the quotes) one of the results was: Ubuntu’s command-not-found equivalent for Homebrew on OSX I have not personally tried using it, so I cannot comment on how well it may work.

The Mac and iPhone need to have the same iCloud account set up. If they do, and it's still not visible remove the account from and re-configure it on the device that's behaving unexpectedly.

As far as I'm aware, it's not possible to run a Macbook Pro in Target Display Mode, only iMacs. Ref: Apple KB - Target Display Mode: Frequently Asked Questions BTW, VGA or Ethernet to Thunderbolt is a physical impossibility. Your cables must be Thunderbolt to VGA / Ethernet.

Yes, you can. In Xcode, you can set archive for iOS Device even if you haven't got an iOS Device (this is instead of "Simulator") and upload this binary to iTunes Connect perfectly fine.

This is the new behaviour in Yosemite and it can't easily be changed. The menu bar format now doesn't read your custom format and instead displays a barely customizable format instead. The only available options for it can be found in System Preferences -> Date & Time -> Clock. One thing you could do is use a third party utility like Day-O, which is ...

Assuming you're fairly default and using bash: http://www.tuxarena.com/2012/04/tutorial-colored-man-pages-how-it-works/ Short version: Add the following to your .bashrc file: export LESS_TERMCAP_mb=$(printf '\e[01;31m') # enter blinking mode – red export LESS_TERMCAP_md=$(printf '\e[01;35m') # enter double-bright mode – bold, magenta export ...

Check "Text Message forwarding" under phone Settings > Messages > Text. This must be on (and your iOS device and OS X machine must be on the same network) for text messaging from Messages on OS X to work. (It's possible this was disabled disabled for his Mac after a reboot.)

Try this: Quit Stickies Open a Finder window Navigate to ~/Library/Saved Application States/ Look for com.apple.Stickies.savedState and Trash it Relaunch Stickies Hopefully that helps. :) NOTE: This will reset the positions of ALL your current Stickies.

Here is how to do it for low cost and really fast. Record just one demo from the iPhone 6 plus. Edit it in iMovie as an App Preview project. Export it as a ProRes file You now have your high quality master from which you will produce all other formats, without having to record more demos on other devices and edit them all over again, which is ...

You could change permissions for Safari. Open the information window on Safari (from the Finder window, with the Safari application selected, push command+I or right-click), add the desired user, and set permissions to no access.

Stretch goal! To expand on the answer above (because the more appropriate related question is marked as a dupe and can't recieve new answers)... I've added a function to my ~/.bash_profile to handle revealing a file or directory: # Reveal a file or directory in Finder # ..expects only one argument # the argument is quoted to accommodate spaces in the ...

Just open the terminal and type: cd /Applications sudo rm -R -f Safari.app It will ask for your password and proceed to delete Safari from the system. You may want to backup the app before.

In OSX Yosemite, you can achieve this by holding the ⌥ option and click the green (+).

beroe, I love your answer. Let me add a little detail… tell application "Google Chrome" activate end tell could be change to: tell application "Google Chrome" to activate Make you skip two lines… ;-)

On closer examination of the rule in the picture, it looks like it is set to Hostnames apple.com, not Domains apple.com, which may make all the difference. If not, try adding a duplicate Domains rule also for System processes, as well as 'My' processes. If that spits out any duplicates, you can then clear the others. You may find some are locked - so ...

Try using the Terminal! Type: sips -r 5 --padColor FFFFFF test.pdf Where 5 is the degrees, FFFFFF is for white (the background) and test.pdf is your pdf. To more easily use this, try only typing sips -r 5 --padColor FFFFFF and then drag a file on the terminal.

The Mono.framework neither belongs to Apple nor is it installed as a part of Xcode. I've cross-checked that with a VM (10.8.5/Xcode 5.1.1) Checking your profile i'd suspect it was installed with Xamarin (or another cross-platform dev environment). IMHO your Mono installation is hosed/got corrupted. A proper install looks like this (/Library/Frameworks): ...

To your first question: Yes it does keep record of lots of stuff--lots of records. Open the Console log and have fun looking through it. To your other questions: Only if you realize the mistake immediately some stuff is recoverable. It also depends how full your disk is (theoretically), so the deleted information would not be immediately overwritten.

Luckily, there is usually a way to avoid installing Java while still using your mobile internet dongle. The software they bundle with these devices is based on Java because it is multi-platform. They code one app to handle the functionality and deploy it. However, the drivers (for Windows) and kexts (for Mac) are not based on Java and use native code. You ...

You forgot to make an exclude-files list, and are likely copying things that can't / shouldn't be copied, including bottomless files like /dev/random. While cp can do the job, there are better tools. Rsync is one, Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper is another. To use a kitchen analogy, you are using a knife to open a can. Rsync is a can opener, Carbon Copy ...

I just noticed that 10.10.3 was available and tried it again. I am guessing that others noticed this bug and reported the problem for 10.10.2. createinstallmedia works as expected.

Connect your iPad to your Mac. Open iTunes, select the iPad on the top and on the left you will find a photos menu where you can select what you'd like to sync. Alternatively, you can use iCloud Photos, which would have to be enabled on both your iMac and your iPad, which will then sync photos over the cloud (via your internet connection). However, if you ...

I'm not sure but should be System preferences -> Accessibility -> Zoom -> Use scroll gesture with modifier keys to zoom (or similar, I got it in italian) that should be unchecked.

The keys didn't work for me on OSX10.10, while they normally do. I launched and quit iTunes. After that, Spotify responded to the media keys again. Even play/pause without launching iTunes. This may be because I tweaked OS X to stop launching iTunes when pressing play/pause (I can't remember for sure.) Pressing play/pause on a headset does still launch ...

As far as I can tell: All the images are imported. The "Stack Pick" gets the keyword "Stack Pick." (Very unfortunately…) In all other respects, images that were parts of stacks are indistinguishable from images that are not parts of stacks. This means it's not possible to automatically find all images that are parts of stacks, but not the stack pick. (To ...

Q1. No. Intellij deliberately requires jre6 because of bugs in Java 8 as described at :Why is Java SE 6 Legacy required to open Intellij?. Q2. I assume that the Android Studio app has its own embedded Java and so does not depend on or use the version you have on your Mac. (This is the way people producing Java apps are going now, and I think it is the only ...
