This problem is caused by OS X bash session restoration process which inserts in every '.session' file command like this: echo Restored session: суббота, 25 июня 2016 г. 23:29:08 (MSK) We should not use symbols like '(' in echo command text without being wrapped in quotation marks, but OS X forgot about it, alas. The only way for me to get rid of this ...

Yes, it's because the Mac sees multiple bootable disks. Or multiple bootable volumes on the internal drive.

My Mail.app was freezing when I tried to quit it (forcing me to force quit it) and it was also not letting me select folders (it just showed the same partial list of my email). I tried https://miapple.me/fixing-mac-os-x-10-10-yosemite-mail-not-responding/ to no avail. Believe it or not, what finally worked was: force quit Mail.app turn of Airport so my ...

If you are trying to bring up the Login Window via a keyboard shortcut the answer is, there is not a default keyboard shortcut to invoke the Login Window. However one can create an Automator Service which can then have a keyboard shortcut assigned to it. The problem with that method is finding a globally responsive keyboard shortcut that will trigger ...

This is not possible within the App itself. Although you can download an App called IFTTT, it connects the Apps you use and make them work together.

You can find it here, after you've downloaded the IFTTT App. Hope this ...

# is used by the shell to indicate a comment. So if you type cd #ui everything after the # is ignored and you basically just execute cd. To change into the directory, use one of cd ./#ui cd \#ui instead. The same applies if you want to remove it.

Unfortunately what you are asking is not possible. Because the Sleep Mode just displays a blurred version of your desktop background, you cannot make it different than your desktop background. You might try and find a script that changes your desktop background as soon as you sleep the computer and change it back as soon as you unlock it, but that would not ...

So it appears that this was related to mac file structure corruption. I rebooted in safe mode and that rebuilt some caches which resolved the issue when I again rebooted in normal mode. I ran the disk utility repair to verify file structure as well. I talked with apple support who advised that safe mode bypasses the following caches, preferences, folders....

I have python3 installed on my mac while the original python2.7 comes with the OSX. So whenever I want to invoke the python3, i just type $python3 .... Maybe you should try $python3 get-pip.py, this works for me when I have almost the same problem with you.

With the apple quarantine attribute, chmod is not enough to remove it. You need to remove the attribute explicitly: sudo xattr -d com.apple.quarantine my_file

You can't turn that Gatekeeper option on; Apple has removed it. What it comes down to is that Apple is removing the "Install from Anywhere" option for the "general user" or the masses of people that are not power users. However as already answered by user Mateusz Szlosek, you can still open unsigned apps by right clicking (Ctrl clicking) on the Application ...

The problem here is just simply that brew is detecting an old version of Xcode. If it was objecting to the version of the command line tools that you have installed you'd be getting a different error message. A newer Command Line Tools release is available. Update them from Software Update in the App Store. You can see the actual code here yourself. The ...

You can open those files with Seconday Click (Right Click or ⌃CTRL+Click) in Finder and choosing open. Right now there's no way of getting Anywhere option back.

Clamshell Mode What you are describing when you operate your Mac laptop (Macbook/Pro/Air) is called closed clamshell mode or closed display mode.

With some care it can be done safely. It depends by and large on what kind of loads you're placing on the MacBook when it's being used like this. The MacBook Pro's ventilation operates optimally with the lid open. Closing the lid restricts airflow out of the vents that run along the inside of the hinge on the laptop as seen here: When the lid is closed, ...

Using the terminal, you can try deleting your dock preferences, then restarting the dock: % defaults delete com.apple.dock % killall Dock This won't affect the contents of your dock, but it will reset the preferences that you'd normally edit in the Dock panel of the System Preferences. EDIT: Per comments below, apparently this does reset dock contents ...

Well, it seems the solution was pretty simple. I have a power strip with 6 sockets, and each socket has its own power switch. If I fire up the external monitor before the MacBook, the monitor is detected as expected.

After this, I then went to the main.storyboard page, selected the view controller and then from the ...

I use odrive. It's a great sync manager that supports a lot of cloud storage providers, like Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, Onedrive, Amazon S3, FTP, etc. You can see the list of providers on the homepage. They offer sync clients for Mac and PC, which both support "unsyncing", where you can choose to just keep files in the cloud. It works really great and it's ...

I haven't tried it yet, but the folks behind CyberDuck have released Mountain Duck, it allows you to view remote resources as volumes on the desktop (i.e. integrates Azure, SFTP, S3, etc. with the Finder). https://mountainduck.io/

For my money, the gold standard file transfer program would be Transmit by Panic. Longstanding Mac developers, continued support and improvement of the product, good value for the price if you work with files professionally or have time constraints on your work. https://panic.com/transmit/

I realize how old this is, but the answer is VLC player. I have an El Capitan Macbook 13". Open VLC, then Window - Video Effects - Geometry - Transform. From there you can rotate 90/180/270, flip horizontally or vertically, magnify, clone etc. Perfect if you have a p/w locked no remote garage sale projector like mine.

I tried deleting the folder and the system was fine after that. The file wasn't created by the PopcornTime app for Mac but the iOSInstaller of PopcornTime. I tried to install the app on my iPad and the installer created that folder and all those large files. So to answer the question: YES you can delete that folder and all the files inside it.

I know this question is old, but I thought for other people that may read this they would find this helpful... I found that OS X is mounting and writing to the volume immediately upon dd completing. This makes it impossible to checksum the newly written volume and compare with the file. I had to use a forensics tool call DiskArbitrator to prevent volumes ...

OneDrive allows you to sync to whatever folder you desire. In your case, point it to a OneDrive folder in the shared Windows document folder. The Mac will simply have this folder in its Document folder as well. Whenever Windows is running, it will sync with Onedrive and populate the shared folder. Of course, since you don't have OneDrive on the Mac, it won't ...

I've had this problem and its common. I would like to help but will need more information about your attempts to solve because there is more than on potential solution. Restart your computer.

Sounds like you have headphones with volume controls and either they volume up bottom is jammed/broken, or they're not compatible with macs... The first one is my guess. The second one is rare.

According to me, the best way to resolve this, is to goto System Preferences -> General. Make sure "Ask to keep changes when closing documents" is selected. This will prevent accidental changes in PDF files, as well as other files when opened by other apps.
