comment Naming conventions for naming files that would start with a dot usually
Thanks that a good idea, but because its Music related Im going to go with the iTunes naming conventions answer.

Ah thanks its not directly iTunes but it is Music so seems like a sensible to follow that naming convention

comment Can I configure and start TIme Machine from the commandLine
Thanks for this comprehensive answer, however Ive now found an easier way round by Gui problems by toggling to Mouse Keys (by pressing OPtion key 5 times) I can simulate a mouse click with Cntl-I so I'll probably configure TimeMachine with Gui after all.

comment Can I configure Accessbility settings using Terminal instead of Preferences Panel
Thankyou that did work, but then I found I couln't type anything in, apparently a side effect of using mouse keys without having a numeric keyboard. However I then found that pressing Option key 5 times toggles between Mouse Keys On/Off so I can just toggle on whenever I need to do a mouse click, thanks. I also enabled Speakable items but canot get that working, Ive also checked my trackpad settings but there is nothing wrong with my settings my trackpad just fails to work.

comment User Control screwed up but unable to click on icons with Mouse on OSX 10.8
okay i have a booked a meeting with my local apple store on friday. One other thing ive noticed is that although the trackpad does not appear to respond to taps ectera, tapping it when the macscreen has gone to sleep does work

Eventually after considerable clicking attempts on trackpad I got the OSX update to apply, but unfortunately it has made no difference and the problem persists in both normal and safe mode.

Oh man, I had this idea of both disabling the trackpad in Asseccisibility and of enablign voice activated commands but in both cases there seems to be no way of changing these values with my broken mouse/trackpad setup

comment User Control screwed up but unable to click on icons with Mouse on OSX 10.8
Made some sort of progress, when using a 3button mouse, the right button works, brings up popmenus ectera, and the middle button (which I never usually use) also seems to work in that it lets me select items brough up in popupmenus, but unfortunately the left clik button never works. So in App Store I can start Update, by right clicking on the button and then using middle button, but unfortunately when I get to the agreement dialog, none of the button will let me select the Agree button

Before I saw your reply I thought maybe the trackpad had got wet so I undid the case ands unplugged the battery using this video youtube.com/watch?v=42qcvlftmcM and looked underneath it but there was so sigh of water. This then caused problems on reboot because datetime was now wrong, but I did eventually manage to change this in preferences because the preferences search box actually allows you to open a preference by finding it in the searchbox. I set Date/Time, then checked Mouse and Trackpad there wasn't anything weird about their settings.
