@Wowfunhappy's suggestion to use a Login Hook got me the exact behavior I wanted, even if it wasn't done via a LaunchDaemon as planned. The solution: A script (myscript.sh) to launch my app (must be executable via chmod a+x) #!/bin/bash //launch app in background (otherwise login hangs) /path/to/myapp.app/Contents/MacOS/myapp & And specifying that ...

Technically, you can delete every thing in the User Library and the system will continue to work just fine. A brand new user account has nothing in its Library, after all. The user Library contains iCloud Drive files, iOS backups, user-specific app data like Mail and Messages, as well as settings and preferences. But realistically, the small amounts of space ...

It turns out that if you uninstall or disable Logi Options in the System Preferences, then at least two of the side buttons on Logitech mice seem to appear as standard mouse events. I.e., Mouse Button 4 and Mouse Button 5. Having Logi Options configured to do Input Monitoring in System Preferences, which is required for Logi Options to work, blocks apps from ...

If you are not finding what you are looking for in the software provided by Logitech for their USB Mac mice there are indeed other ways to do what you want to do. Though I have not used either one of these products, they have been around for quite a while and seem to be well supported by their developers. I was reminded of these recently on https://...

Symantec is the company who makes Norton Anti-Virus & also Symantec End-Point protection. If you have another antivirus product on your Mac - Avast - then you should completely uninstall Norton &/or Symantec [Symantec may have been installed as part of a corporate package, in which case you'd need to check with the relevant IT department]. Having two ...

I'm not sure why the instructions refer to the 'Automatically Add to iTunes' folder. This shouldn't be necessary, so long as your old & new users have the same name & you always used default settings for iTunes. Your previous library must be consolidated before you do this - that ensures all necessary data/tunes are in that folder structure & not ...

For those who experience this problem, I partly solved the issue (which created a new issue) by doing the following: THE SOLUTION: I took my mac to the Apple store, and showed them the missing serial number. The Apple Technician connected my mac to Apples servers and reflashed my logic board with the correct serial number right in front of my eyes all for ...

It seems like you have filevault enabled. You also have verbose mode enabled. Because of this macOS needs to finish booting into the decrypted drive and it shows verbose output. To avoid this disable filevault or verbose mode. That should fix the problem. To disable filevault go to system preferences->security->FileVault and disable it there. If you ...

For me, I had to first turn off System Integrity Protection which comes with Catalina onwards by rebooting using Command+R and executing this command from the terminal: $ csrutil disable Then I rebooted and was able to delete this folder, which in my case was taking up to 700+ GB of disk space: /System/Volumes/Data/Previous Content At this point, I was ...

Changing BD PROCHOT did not seem to work for me on an early 2015 MacBook Air with a missing battery. What did work though was requesting a different Target Performance State Value using the IA32_PERF_CTL (0x199) MSR as suggested in this GitHub comment. The exact value you need to write does not seem to be officially documented. The Intel® 64 and IA-32 ...

I tried using sudo passed username and was also asked for the old password for username. I was able to change username’s password by rebooting the computer, getting into the Users & Groups preference pane, unlocking it with the admin user ID and password, and clicking on the Change Password… button. No old password required. The restart was the only way ...

Using Catalina 10.15.6 and iPadOS 14.4.2, I've found that simply turning WiFi off from the control panel on the iPad (or toggling the slider in Settings) is not sufficient to force USB connection, you need to put the iPad into airplane mode — Mac was still able to connect to iPad with iPad's WiFi "turned off". It was only unable to connect in ...
