Based on your input, you are probably a candidate for more serious disk repair tools like the Disk Warrior. They claim to be the most advanced disk utility tool on the market, but there is a charge for it. The choice is your if to spend the money.

Here is the solution. The script that generates the link, generats a url that starts with a custom googledrive:// and then the path to the file in the Google Drive folder. I then set lincastor to trigger the following script for urls beginning with googledrive:// on handle_url(args) set theUnixPath to |URL_PATH| of args set theUnixPath to (POSIX ...

The primary reason to disable the swapfile isn't speed - it's disk space. If one is a user who routinely runs within 5 GB of a full drive, disabling swap will stop the constant nagging of running out of space; I routinely wind up with a 4+ GB swapfile from routine browsing. The speed improvement is astounding on older machines; it's not that impressive on ...

As an aside, the behavior of the power button has become a bit fiddly (annoying...) for me, however on my MBP 2013 with Yosemite CONTROL-EJECT does fine for bringing that dialog up.

The thing is - all Microsoft Office documents are ZIP files containing XML files. I would try this: copy the XLSX to another location Rename the copy by addin ".zip" to it (ignore the warnings) unzip the copy with your favourite tool (Unarchiver or terminal "unzip ") look through the folder structure and find your zip file.

Mission Control is the quick way to see everything that's currently open on your Mac. The above statement from the Apple help page WAS true, but now it is OUTDATED. Mission Control used to show all open windows including hidden ones, but Apple excluded hidden windows from the list in the recent versions of OS X. But the documentation is not updated ...

There is a very easy way to do this: Set a shortcut for Spotlight and use it. I set my spotlight shortcut to Control + Spacebar (so it doesn't interfere with other apps — especially the Adobe CC app pan & zoom tools). When I'm in some app and type that key combo I get a Finder window in the same Space I'm already in (not Finder Space) and the cursor ...

What you are seeing are QuickLook preview thumbnails: if you look closely at your screenshot, you will notice each “icon” shows the start of the file’s content. You are correct this is due to you installing TextMate 2, which provides a powerful QuickLook extension for source code files (try selecting one of the files in Finder and hitting space). The ...

This workaround may not suit everyone, but if you have a non-Retina external monitor, you can move the application window there and take the screenshot. That's what I do most of the time.

It's your $PS1 - it's not properly escaped. You have to escape all non-printing characters with \[ and \]. For example, if you have export PS1='\e[32m\u \W\e[0m $ ' you have to change it to export PS1='\[\e[32m\]\u \W\[\e[0m\] $ ' or your cursor will appear far to the right because your shell thinks your prompt is that long, and when it retypes the ...

Assuming you're on a normal Mac then the power button will bring it up. Details here. Further details about creating shortcuts here.

The unfortunate answer is: it's just you. My bash is: bash-3.2$ bash --version GNU bash, version 3.2.57(1)-release (x86_64-apple-darwin14) Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

I have struggled with my own connection dropping intermittently (more often, just becoming very slow/weak for periods of time). The problem for me seems to be that I chose a spot in my house that has poor Wifi signal, perhaps due to the configuration of walls, the configuration of metal in my house construction, and so on. If I move my computer a meter or ...

CMD-TAB until you to the app, arrow up, enter. Yeah not very intuitive. I wish minimized apps would be removed from the alt-tab and then just hide windows and get them back with the alt-tab. Apple, take note. This is annoying.

You are misunderstanding the way (Mac)Vim processes its configuration. Simplifying slightly, there are three layers to it on OS X: the vimrc and gvirmc files in $VIMRUNTIME are the runtime defaults for the Vim install. For MacVim, this is set to point inside the application bundle – the files you found. These will be overwritten each time you update ...

To find and retrieve the print jobs: Use the go to Folder in Finder and paste this /private/var/spool/cups. It wont let you access the folder so use the "Get info" and change the permission for you so you can access it. If you have files waiting to be printed then it looks like this: It is the file name beginning with "d" that you want to copy.

I also ended up looking for good solutions. Thunderbolt 2 supports 20 Gb/s. So it could provide enough reserves for a real usb 3 hub where every port could finally run 5 Gb/s = 640 MB/s. As a single SSD already exceeds the speed of a USB 3 connection, we should not put them through a USB 3 Hub bottleneck to not enforce slowing the transfer rates down. ...

Update 3: Sorry it took so long to get back. I have been doing some reading. There two ways for a operating system to boot on a Mac. The first involves using the legacy BIOS which assumes the disk is partitioned using a MBR scheme. The second uses the EFI which (in our case) assumes the disk is partitioned using a GPT scheme. Macs provide both partition ...

The CUPS web interface would allow you to direct the print job to another printer.

You can screen capture the iPhone directly using QuickTime on the MacBook and connect the iPhone via USB cable to the MacBook. Here is the link to a tutorial: http://www.labnol.org/software/quicktime-ios-screen-recorder/8375/ This way you don't need reflector and the quality is even better.

As noted in my comment from earlier, you can make an alias of the alias and it will acquire the icon from the original source... for some reason. The following example is with folders... so it's not the exact situation in the question, but I think it illustrates the point:

Update 3: There were a two reasons I wanted the output from diskutil and fdisk. First I wanted to check if rEFIt was installed on its own partition. It is not. This leaves either the EFI partition or the OS X partition. The normal (automatic) installation would be OS X, which is backed up with Time Machine. To be safe, you could backup the EFI partition. ...

As all macs using cups for printing, you can manage it with a web interface.

Not a brilliantly helpful answer, but a resolution nonetheless. I contacted OWC's online chat tech support, who were incredibly helpful - continuing the conversation for an hour and a half - and talked me through diagnosing the problem. The tech support rep first suggested using my old boot drive, and from there, testing whether my SSD was writable via the ...

Here's a simple toggle Bluetooth script that uses blueutil (available via Homebrew), no UI scripting.

Either, in a Terminal: killall Finder Or, from the Apple menu, Log Out and then log back in. Either should cause the Alias to show the correct icon. In the event the Alias doesn't update after this then delete the Alias and recreate it.

It does need opening if you are trying to access your Caching server outside of your network. If you are only attempting to access it within the network, this port doesn't need unblocking externally.

The question itself isn't exact too, because the OP talks about: files names like ABC 123456 (without extension), but in the example code using *.txt extension add a dash between two blocks (e.g. where is the space) like ABC - 123456, but in the next taking about counting to 4 and count 3, e.g. not exacltly clear what the script should do for example if ...

It sounds like you are in rich text mode, so the editor is trying to save the file in non-plain text format. In general for css/html/code you want just plain text. In the "Format" menu, choose "Make Plain Text" then when you do a "Save As..." you should be able to just type whatever extension you need. EDIT -- As Tetsujin mentions, you do should uncheck ...

If you really need to use TextEdit, simplest might be just to rename in the Finder afterwards. A CSS file is just a text file anyway, so it shouldn't upset anything. If you don't see the existing extension, then there's a pref in Finder menu > Preferences > Advanced to show all filename extensions, & also one just underneath to stop the Finder ...
