You're close. Get the path to your file by making a one-line script: set the_file to choose file Copy the result of that. Then, in the script that will open the "Fallen_Order_Intro" script, tell the Finder to do the opening for you, pasting in your second script's path, obtained using the "choose file" script.

Apple's Help menu in the finder has an article titled What are those symbols shown in menus? - the related articles at the bottom are great reading. Your specific answer is: shiftdelete The up arrow is the shift key and the symbol with the "x" is the delete key. Refer to Mac keyboard shortcuts for further information on the symbols.

I am almost positive there is no app that does this. Your best bet will likely be to develop a script that cross checks icon changes at some regular interval when both machines are on the same network with access to whatever drive in which you keep your icon library stored.

From the details you provided. It sounds as if the kernel panic is due to to an issue in the firmware of your device. There are two things you can do: (before doing any of the solutions, always have a backup of your files, especially the important ones) Use the App Store to see if there is an update for your firmware. Just and fyi, you should update your ...

Unless your $PATH is different than normal, you could solve that with a sym link of the tool you want. $echo $PATH /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin Then if the libtool you want to run first is /usr/local/libtool/bin/libtool then a quick sudo ln -s /usr/local/libtool/bin/libtool /usr/local/bin At that point, you might have to restart your ...

Here are some quick suggestions. On newer OS, the files storing plist are not the final source of preferences. Instead, you will need to issue a delete command to the preference system that runs and contains a working copy of your changes. defaults delete com.apple.finder That should remove the preferences and then you would need to log out and log in to ...

I don't know what the defaults write command is, but Mac Pilot can do this by setting this: I just confirmed it works in 10.11.5 without needing a reboot.

You cannot "just" stop it - unfortunately. You have some options to keep it in the same place, but they have drawbacks: A) Keep the dock on the left or right side of the desktop. That way it will stay in place. or B) In Preferences => Mission Control, uncheck "Displays have seperate spaces". Now the dock will stay in place, but you will loose the spaces ...

The 40gb of space being used isn't actually applications there just files on your mac not applications. This has happened to me before, apparently its an indexing problem. You Can reindex spotlight by going into terminal and typing : sudo mdutil -E / I also would recommend downloading OmniDiskSweeper like mcmahoniel said. Hope this helps good luck!

OmniDiskSweeper is a great tool to help you narrow down where space is being taken up. It's free, and gives you a simply UI (similar to Finder) to drill down and figure that out. See this article for examples. Alternatively, if you'd like to do it by hand, you can try narrowing down folders one at a time. For me, I'll right-click (control-click) a set of ...

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "active desktop", but the command "system_profiler" can generate a vast amount of information about your computer. Between it's various settings and text filtering, you should be able to pluck out almost anything need to know.

It turns out the issue is with the fact that I moved my dropbox folder to an external drive. In that case, OSX creates a bunch of files named ._filename, which dropbox cannot sync. To clean these files, someone wrote this small script that works in the background. I installed and ran it, and my problems were solved.

It is most certainly a bug that needs to be addressed in future versions of OS X. I have the same problem and have found out the following curiosities: When I added a rule to change the color of encrypted emails to give at least a visual indication in the list view, it worked fine, so there's really no reason not to show the lock icon. The moment I added ...

Since you are looking at playing it in VLC, I would suggest using MKVToolNix. It's a free, open-source set of tools to allow you to manipulate MKVs.

HazeOver works very well for me (in 10.10.5 as of this writing), and plays well with f.lux. HazeOver can be changed (quickly) to highlight the active window and dim everything else (even pretty much hide it entirely, for "focus" or "theater" mode), or to highlight all windows of the frontmost app, and dim the rest just a little, which I use a lot when ...

As it turns out, to solve the problem you have to configure a search domain and add it to the search domain field under System Preferences dns configuration. Basically, the search domain will work sort of the way that .local does, but instead it will be . You have to set up your search domain as a master zone in your dns server for this to work.

The linked how-to works almost perfectly with some exceptions and modifications because of newer Python and OpenCV packages.

Only one I've ever really used is BetterZip [$20] It is a GUI app, but has Applescript & Services support, with which you can run presets with your default settings - including omitting Mac-specific files like .DS_Store & __MACOSX.

If you noticed a sudden slowdown then that points to an event of some sort that is likely pointed to an issue with the HDD (IMHO). Mac OS is very sensitive to issues with the speed of the disk, which is why it benefits so much from upgrading to an SSD. My recommendations? Back up your vital data now. Boot the system into recovery mode, run disk utility to ...

You should avoid using SMB on OS X (IMHO) as it has been buggy since the days of Snow Leopard (10.6), for me at least.
