I have an app (gv) where I can run it from the terminal, but when I click on it, I get errors. This makes me think there are multiple instances of it or something. I tried which and got nothing... that seems odd. so then I tried locate, which gave me this warning:
$ which gv $ locate gv WARNING: The locate database (/var/db/locate.database) does not exist. To create the database, run the following command: sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.locate.plist Please be aware that the database can take some time to generate; once the database has been created, this message will no longer appear.
sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.locate.plist
but when I run locate, I still get this message. yes, I can run find, but it is taking forever. How can I get locate working? I am on OSX 10.6.8
