Create a text file like this: #!/bin/bash cd "$(dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}")" || { echo "Error changing directory." >&2 exit 1 } echo "Cleaning files..." rm *.aux rm *.bak rm *.bbl rm *.blg rm *.gz rm *.log rm *.pdf echo "Done!" Give it a ".command" extension, and add execute permission to it. This will make it automatically open and ...

First try repairing permissions on your startup drive in Disk Utility. You want to make sure all your quicklook plugins have proper access. Repairing permissions should fix any problems, if it finds any. You'll then want to reload the plug ins and clear the cache by running the following 2 terminal commends: qlmanage -r (hit enter) qlmanage -r cache ...

There are lots of other languages that can be used to create iOS apps. Xojo is one of the easier ones to start with if you don't have substantial coding experience.

It can't find the kernel files. When you turn on your Mac make sure you pressing and holding the the "Option" key then selecting the USB flash? If you are still having difficulty, then the creation of the USB flash disk didn't go so well. I am assuming that you have a good DMG image of the Snow Leopard DVD. You can't just "copy" or restore the image to ...

I figured it out, my hd was getting mounted under Volumes and had to be removed with diskutil unmount /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD Don't know why unmountdisk wasn't fixing this but whatever

rm is a standard Unix command and Unix does not always have trash. At the programming level the BSD API does not have a system call to trash a file, Apple supplies those at a higher level. Also you need a command that deletes files e.g. to remove them from trash and rm happens to be it. You need another command to put a file in trash.

The issue is caused by BSD split being later in your path than the GNU split (which doesn't support the -p option). If you do an echo $PATH you should see this - /usr/local/opt/coreutils/libexec/gnubin will be before /usr/bin in the output. To call BSD split directly, use the full path - pipe to /usr/bin/split instead of split. Your original command will ...

The boot problem seemed to have been related to a disk error on the hard disk of the mac. I ran the disk utility and it detected a problem with the macbook's HDD (something with doubled file links), which it then repaired. The computer was still slow and unresponsive after the disk repair. After that the boot from the USB worked fine, and I was able to clean ...

For being really sure about this, you could use find to create a deletion shellscript with "rm" commands: find . ! -name "<filename>" -exec echo "rm -rf {}" >> /tmp/rm.sh \; Delete every line in the shellscript /tmp/rm.sh you do not like, then execute it by bash /tmp/rm.sh But be careful - find also finds directories and "rm -rf" would then ...

Bad News The Truecrypt Formula on Homebrew has been removed due to bugs, and probably uncertainty in the community regarding truecrypt's safety. There also used to be a homebrew cask which was removed due to installation bugs. However, it was also moved to homebrew-unofficial and scheduled for removal. For more information about the 3rd party audit, and ...

I would go about it like this: find . ! -name <filename> -delete for this to work with folders, you have to replace the delete with an exec rm -r find . ! -name <filename> -exec rm -rv {} \; This breaks down to find = find . = in current working directory, you can replace . with a path, like ~/Documents/ ! = not -name = name ...

Based on this reference (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/59895/can-a-bash-script-tell-what-directory-its-stored-in), I ended up solving my problem with the following code: #!/bin/bash DIR=$( cd "$( dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}" )" && pwd ) echo "Cleaning files..." cd $DIR rm *.aux rm *.bak rm *.bbl rm *.blg rm *.gz rm *.log rm *.pdf echo ...

DBSchema is also awesome. Best thing is that you can do reverse engineering as well as modeling together at once. After you change the diagram, you change the database; you can import those changes back in the diagram. The only flaw is ordering of column names in the diagrams - that do not necessarily match with the ordinality of the column names in the ...

In addition to installing from macports / homebrew, on Yosemite you also need to sign the gdb binary. See http://sourceware.org/gdb/wiki/BuildingOnDarwin .

As per the above - I had this issue, but I found that although I couldn't 'tap' on my trackpad, I could 'click' (press on bottom left of pad). Alternatively, the Tab key will move the cursor between sections of the window, arrow keys high-light an item within it, and the space bar selects it

This may not be much of an answer, but I have also had issues with 3rd party apps while using a MacBook Pro. Here are a couple things you could try: 1. Make sure the application is capable of running on your Mac version. [E.g; if your computer can handle 32bit applications or 64bit] Check Amazon's website where you downloaded the application to see if they ...

Pandoc 1.15.0.4 was just released, will install the MAN pages during the cabal install process. However, you need to make sure your MANPATH environment variable includes the cabal MAN page directory. (On OSX, this is generally $HOME/Library/Haskell/share/man.) Add to your ~/.bashrc: MANPATH=$HOME/Library/Haskell/share/man:$MANPATH

Disk Utility will not fix every conceivable disk corruption issue. For that you need third-party apps. I use Diskwarrior and have also had success with Drive Genius. However there is one way to do this without buying a disk repair utility. Back up your hard drive, partition/reformat it, reinstall the OS and restore your backup. Yeah it's more complicated ...

Programs that install system components can't be uninstalled by simply throwing them in the Trash. Usually an Uninstaller is provided in the original .dmg file, or can sometimes done from within the app itself. If you delete the app, you may be too late to use that method. Most companies that make apps which must be correctly uninstalled will have ...

If you're really scared, yes. WebGL allows web developers to code shaders which run unprotected in the GPU. This can cause many security issues because there aren't really any antiviruses to protect against GPU infections. The risks aren't too great because there are organizations such as Google and Khronos working on making it much safer. These ...

There is pandoc --help as well as the online documentation/user guide. I have pandoc installed via Homebrew and I also have no man pages. erik@Eriks-MBP:~$ man pandoc No manual entry for pandoc

The files are stored in the project directory; in Xcode, find the file you'd like to see where is, right-click it, and choose "Show in Finder". Nope. You'll have to recompile for other platforms, and possibly change code to be more portable. (That last, of course, depends on what libraries you use.) Probably. Xcode may set some compiler flags you wouldn't ...

As @Allan said, your hard drive has a problem. You may be able to fix them with DiskWarrior and/or SpinRite. DiskWarrior will fix Mac-specific errors and will boot directly on your iBook (talk to their support to make sure they mail you something that you can boot from). SpinRite can fix drive-level data errors, but only runs on PCs (soon Intel Macs, which ...

The "read only" status has to do with the UUID of the files on the drive no longer matching what is coming from your Mac. So, basically, you have to "orphan" those files. Here is a good writeup on how to do it, but note that this is an UNOFFICIAL method and not sanctioned by Apple. How to Enable NTFS Write Support in Mac OS X

That symbol means your drive has crashed - or at least the system can no longer "see" the drive. Do you have an install disk to boot from? If you do, use that, go into Disk Util and see if you can access your drive from there. If not, I would look at getting a replacement drive from eBay as your's is IDE/PATA and those are hard to come by new these days.

There's an important detail missing in this answer, for those of you/us who are "click challenged". The menu shown above (Forward...,Copy, Delete...) only shows up if you are clicking in the correct part of the message. If you click over any of the words, you'll get a menu that looks like this If you instead click on an area of the message that has NO ...

In Mavericks there is an option to open a new terminal window at the folder you have highlighted in Finder. To enable this option go to Finder -> Services -> Service Preferences and check New Terminal at Folder. Then use it from the Finder menu:

I had a similar problem, and adding locallocks to the mount options fixed it for me. (Alternatively, adding nfsvers=4 fixed it as well, but I ended up getting kernel panics on the Mac client, so I went back to the default NFSv3.)

I had stale files in Finder when I used noac,nonegnamecache in the NFS mount options on Yosemite. Removing those options fixed the problem. Instead of noac (which is equivalent to actimeo=0), I added actimeo=1 to set the attribute cache timeout to 1 second. I'd prefer if the attribute cache was disabled completely, but this way at least the timeout is low.

This option doesn't exist in my messages app. I only see initials for contacts, sometimes pictures. How can I revert?

I am by no stretch of the imagination an Applescript expert, but this is what I have gleaned from my own fumbling over the years. I'd appreciate corrections if there are any inaccuracies, or better methods.. but with some 'why it works' for newbies ;-) What you're actually doing is asking Script Editor if the string "/Users/[User]/skfhshfkh/hfjhsfhsj/" ...

I think download managers are uneeded, at least, anymore. This question was asked 4 years ago, I know, but Download Managers are useless in today's world. Need a download manager still? Your browser. Done!

This looks like some sort of typeface issue, have you changed any system fonts around? If you have, restoring the fonts, then rebooting should fix the problem. Open Font Book, go to File > Restore Standard Fonts. Read the warning carefully, then click Proceed.

Apple removed Home Sharing for music with 12.2. The theory I've read on the Apple forums is that this is one of the concessions they had to make with the music labels in order to get Apple Music off the ground. Here's a cnet article that mentions the feature change: http://www.cnet.com/news/itunes-users-hit-stumbling-blocks-with-arrival-of-apple-music/

If you're comfortable using the terminal, you might be able to figure out what the file is. If you're not comfortable using terminal, I wouldn't worry about doing this. I was doing this mainly for my own interest rather than any real need. Open terminal and enter the following commands (enter the text following the $): $ cd /lost+found $ ls -l total ...

Image editing software is the only way to go here. You'll have to determine which you want to use if you want us to be able to help you out how to do it. If it's a usual window, the easy route would be to only screenshot that window (cmd+shift+4, then hit the space bar and click the window). That will be easy to fill in.

I had the same issue and solved it thusly: Open Terminal. sudo fdesetup list This will list usernames and uuids of the users FileVault knows about (warning: I'm unclear on the exact specifics of privileges granted by this file). sudo fdesetup remove -uuid [bad UUID] This will remove the erroneous user from the list. For some reason I had to reboot ...

If you have two Machintosh HDs together, choose the second (indented) one. You may need to unlock it via the context menu. Then tell Disk Utility to create an image of the volume directly. In Disk Utility with the Macintosh HD volume selected, use New disk image on the toolbar or select New > Disk Image from "Macintosh HD" from the File menu. Bear in mind ...

I have a solution that I was able to reverse engineer. I've tested it on my machine, running Yosemite 10.10.4 (14E46). If you can find the bundle ID (in the Info.plist file for the app bundle), you can use this script to force the app to appear in the notifications preferences pane. # "Usernoted" seems to be the "user notifications daemon", so get it's PID. ...

No, in the current version and previous versions it will require the password to update, however I believe the version to be released in the fall removes this requirement. You can however fix this by enabling automatic update.

Be sure you aren't looking in the root library, but your user library. Skype in Application Support and com.skype.plist are not invisible by default. Try changing the ~/Library/Application Support with /Users/<username>/Library/ Application Support, with being your Username without the <>. I find it easy to "Go to" with Shift+Command+G while ...

I don't know about your sign-in problem but about removing the files, you can remove all the required files from the Terminal itself. Removing the Skype app itself from the Applications folder shouldn't be a problem. Type these in Terminal to remove the other files (press enter after each line to execute the command): rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ ...

I've never found any way to get full-screen apps to go to the left. At least they don't drop randomly in the middle of other Desktops like they used to, so at least you now know where they're going to be. My workaround has been to use the default ctrl/number key commands in System Prefs > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Mission Control, as below, which in my case ...
