From my own answer at Super User… If it is not in the regular user Login list, then it is most likely in LaunchDaemons. There are two locations for these, one is for Apple daemons only: /System/Library/LaunchDaemons The other is to include 3rd party processes: /Library/LaunchDaemons You may also need to remove from: /Library/LaunchAgents Simply ...

When I delete an app (move it to Trash) do I also need to delete its related data in ~/Library myself? A user is not generally expected to delete those file themselves. If you are aware of, and wish to delete them, you can do so. The most that you would lose is the app specific preferences and any user data which could be re-used if you reinstall the app in ...

There is an app called Platypus which will take shell scripts or python scripts and make them into an app that you can just double click to run. The app is free. I use it to convert python scrips but it also works for command line scripts.

There can be only one 'default' for the whole system. However, you can of course set one or more files to associate with another app from the default. In the Finder, you can select multiple files of the same type within a folder, then press Command Option I, which brings up one "Get Info" dialog for all the files. (In fact, they don't even have to be the ...

This is not how it works. A file type (i.e. PDF) is registered with the system through a process called “LaunchServices.” It’s what associates a file with what opens it. It can even have multiple entries to do things like “Open with Preview” and “Edit with TextEdit” for example. It can’t, however, dynamically change based on a folder because folders ...

The answer is in your question... an application written for the command line is not a Cocoa app, so it won’t behave like one. Apps designed to run in the GUI environment of macOS has a “payload” attached to them including a plist that “describes” it to the OS and is used in registering the app with LaunchServicres. Zathura has none of this.

I found there were now 2 HD's on my desktop, Macintosh HD and Macintosh HD Data. I'm not sure what this is about, so if anyone has an info - it would be appreciated. This is expected behavior in macOS Catalina. Refer to the Apple Support document, About the read-only system volume in macOS Catalina macOS Catalina runs in a read-only system volume, ...

Will I get charged for an iOS app that a family member already paid for, if I download normally? Short answer is, it depends on whether the app in question has Family Sharing enabled for it by the publisher of the app. If the price shows up, even though a family member has already paid for the app, does that mean I'll actually get charged that price ...

This is a partial answer. You can put any group of items in a Dock fan by putting symlinks to each of them in a directory, and dragging that directory from Finder to Dock. You may need to change its options to Fan after dragging it in. You can also paste any image into the folder's icon in a Get Info window. But as far as I know, you're stuck with it on ...

I face similar problem with octave-GUI. I run killall -9 octave killall -9 octave-gui twice to get rid of that. So you can run killall -9 GIMP Make sure you're using case sensitive name of the app.

I haven't got the reputation to comment on bjb's answer but you can add custom icons to .sh scripts. You just drag the image onto the icon in the get info for the file. I think it has to be png and you can get opacity working.
