Your shell has been changed to Zsh, which is the default for new users on Catalina (10.15) and later. To go back to the old shell (BASH), run chsh -s /bin/bash (chsh is a "Change Shell command, the -s flag is "set", and /bin/bash is the location of the BASH shell). Then close and re-open terminal, or log out and log back in, and your shell will be bash again....

It's new in Safari 13.1, even on Mojave. Safari 13.1 will run on macOS High Sierra, Mojave, and Catalina (specifically versions 10.13.6, 10.14.6, and 10.15.4), It's the Safari version that's key, not the OS version itself. Here's the changelog which show this: Safari 13.1 Beta Release Notes Added Close Tabs to the Right. Added Duplicate Tab.

Go to Finder's preferences and on its General tab under "Show these items on the desktop:", uncheck: Hard disks

Did the shell ( terminal ) change in Catalina? These are two completely different things that have nothing to do with each other, so let's address them separately: Did the terminal change in Catalina? No. There might have been updates (although I don't think so), but there have not been any fundamental changes. Did the shell change in Catalina? ...

You're in a search screen and it's currently listing all of the files on "This Mac" (your Mac). It's literally (not figuratively) every single one of your files listed alphabetically in a search window; it's nothing harmful. Just close out of the search and you'll be fine. You might want to take a quick read of the Apple document, Get to know the Finder ...

This is part of a larger macOS Catalina feature wherein system files/apps are located on a read-only filesystem and user data is located on a read/write filesystem. This is to further protect the operating system against malicious or inadvertent damage (i.e. to prevent security problems and OOPS! moments). The read-only and read/write filesystems are ...

For anyone stuck with the same problem, I figured out that I needed to Trust the ipad on my Mac by opening a Finder window, click the ipad on the left bar and finally "Trust" with the appropriate button on the right.

No, this is perfectly normal for Catalina; it is for security reasons. Macintosh HD has the OS. It is a read-only volume separate from other files on your Mac. Your personal files and data are stored in the Macintosh HD - Data. See this Apple support page for more details.

As far I know, a .deb file is a packaged software installer for Debian Linux (and its derivatives.) If you want to install it, you're out of luck. I don't think there is anyway to install .deb packages on OS X. However, we can unpack a .deb file on Mac OS X without installing it. If you use Xcode, a utility called ar is installed. You can run the ...

No, by default, there are no folders on macOS that allow any user to write into them, and then have the content executed automatically. This would be deemed a security risk by Apple. cron and launchd crontab exists on macOS. The use of cron is deprecated; Apple recommend launchd where possible. With launchd each user has their own folder, ~/Library/...

Have you checked your PATH? I just installed sudo-1.8.31.mac1015.pkg and found out that the package installs sudo to /usr/local instead of the default /usr. If you are not sure, run which -a sudo, the one at the top will be used. To override, just add PATH="/usr/local/bin:$PATH" to your ~/.zshrc

If you have or install Docker on your Mac, you can install Microsoft SQL Server in Docker from: https://hub.docker.com/_/microsoft-mssql-server When you have the server running locally, you can install the free Azure Data Studio for macOS from here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/azure-data-studio/download-azure-data-studio?view=sql-server-ver15 ...

Yes. You were probably using bash shell. Catalina changed to zsh.

There is software on the logic board which is referred to as firmware. This is the software that first executes when a Mac starts up. The firmware is capable of reading partitions using various formats such as JHFS+. When Apple introduced the APFS format, Apple only provided firmware updates for certain Mac models. Older Macs can not boot from APFS formatted ...

I just spent a chunk of time with Apple support; they said it's impossible to install Mojave on the 16". Sigh. Also this: "No macOS Mojave on MacBook Pro 16" from gottabemobile.com

From comments… In Activity Monitor, if you set the View to "All Processes, Hierarchically" then all sub-processes of Safari [or anything] will be contained within the main process, aiding the task of discovery.

You are using mdfind correctly, but apparently there is a problem with your Spotlight indexes. I attempted to reproduce the behaviour you observed, but it seems to work fine for me. In fact I got exactly the same results as user3439894. First I created a sample file having the same name as your file. touch GCph_WL_FoM_154.46_AND_SIMPLE_SUM_GCsp_XC_AVEC_NO-...

Yes, you need to use System Preferences -> Security and Privacy -> Privacy -> Files & Folders Or maybe you can specify "Full Disk Access" for the last element there. Grant /bin/bash access, and it should work.

I've found a workaround: I've figured out MSS probably means Master-Slave-Switch. That didn't suffice to fix the issue. But disabling sniff mode resolves the issue. It seems that some energy management code doesn't work properly.

Another answer elsewhere points to a new utility: https://github.com/jslegendre/tccplus It does require SIP (and AMFI) to be disabled, but it may be the best hope.

This is possible for MDM managed Macs by pushing signed profiles to preemptively white-list signed applications. The process is quite detailed, but it uses a well documented profile setup (175 pages to cover the basics). We currently push about 20 items this way, so if you need to manage a lot of apps and a lot of Macs, this is possible and once you have ...

I figured it out. Its the most dumb thing. You go to System Preferences -> Display -> Arrangement. Make sure both monitors are "in line" with each other". XD

Both are backup utilities and both offer you the ability to recover after a "catastrophic" event, but like tools in your tool box, your box wrench and your socket wrench both essentially have the same function, but have their preferred application depending on the scenario. APFS snapshots are a point-in-time snapshot of your APFS file system. Your initial ...

The markup editor doesn't have a control to resize screenshot. Instead you can skip clicking on the screenshot and let it get saved (which is by default on Desktop). Once it is saved, you can open it in Preview.app and use the Adjust Size... command under the Tools menu to resize it.

I don't know about the markup editor but you could open the screenshot in Preview and resize it there. Once in Preview go to the tools menu item and click on adjust size. I'm currently running High Sierra so I don't have access to the markup editor but if you can't do it in markup editor this method will work.

You need to use tccutil to manage the privacy database -- this involves opening the Terminal and using the command line! If you know the bundle ID of the app you're trying to use, you can use this command: tccutil reset ScreenCapture [com.WHATEVERBUNDLE.YOURAPPID] Here are some examples for common applications: tccutil reset ScreenCapture com.apple.Safari ...

Starting with macOS Catalina, Apple has added a new Screen Recording permission to macOS that needs to be granted to every application that tries to record the screen, either for screen capture (saving a movie locally) or screen sharing (transmitting your screen to somewhere else). Security & Privacy in System Preferences You can manage permissions for ...

I tried downloading Scilab and it runs fine on my Catalina, where I've done the steps below to get another Java application to run. Download and install a recent version of the Oracle JDK, like Java SE 13 from https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/javase-downloads.html#JDK13 Then open Terminal (it's in Applications/Utilities) and write cd /Library/Java/...

Unfortunately, you're out of luck. The problem with these low cost, entry level printers is that they use the host (the computer driving the printer) to supply the engine for it. According to the specs (available as a PDF), the Printer Language is "host based." So, it's significantly more than a driver or a CUPS PPD file - it's actual software driving ...
