You can set hide-mirror to true to remove the blur effect: defaults write com.apple.dock hide-mirror -bool true;killall Dock Before: After: I don't know how to make the background dark though.

I handed in my computer with the problem to an authorized service shop. At first they didn't recognize the error, but after some further convincing from my part they claim to have spoken with Apple about it. Apparently, the problem with warm hue is a software bug introduced in one of most recent versions of MacOS High Sierra (spring 2018), and it afflicts ...

There is no straightforward solution, but there are at least a few workarounds available to do this. You can install hilite by building the single C file (hilite.c in this case) or by using brew install hilite (with homebrew installed on the system). Use it as hilite <command>. You can use the command from this answer on serverfault (substitute ...

Yes, this can be achieved with AppleScript and Automator. The setting to automate is located in: System Preferences > Accessibility > Display > Use Greyscale The keyboard combination option + command + F5 also shows Accessibility options. This Apple discussion, Keyboard shortcut for "Use grayscale", shows how to use AppleScript and Automator to create a ...

Just discovered today, March 2018, you can now just select the color chip (soft online indicates it's selected) and use "delete" key.

You can actually just drag & drop them to your desktop trashcan. This works in High Sierra, I'm not sure if it does for previous versions.

I may not be understanding the question fully, since you change the color settings per-tab/window contrary to your question, but here is how to do what I think you want. Go to Terminal menu > Preferences. Click on the Settings tab. Click on the gear icon at the bottom left and choose Duplicate Settings. Enter a name for your settings. Make any changes you ...

As many have mentioned above, I did this - Take a backup of existing ShadowedIBeam.tiff cp Terminal.app/Contents/Resources/ShadowedIBeam.tiff Terminal.app/Contents/Resources/ShadowedIBeam.orig.tiff Make your own cursor .... or, if you are a lazy one, just use this one - (credit: Chris Dragon and his answer on this thread) Then copy it over the original ...

The problem was caused by OS X outputting in YPbPr not RGB. YPbPr sends approximate colours and is used primarily for TVs. Unlike Windows, OS X didn't recognise the Dell as a Monitor because of the HDMI connection. Shifting to a DVI connector fixed this and forced RGB colour data, and thus, correct colours. So no, it was not a problem with callibrating the ...

bplist means binary property list, which can be converted to XML with plutil -convert xml1. Inside each plist for a color is another data key for the fractional RGB values. /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -x -c 'Print "Window Settings":"My Theme"' ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Terminal.plist|tr -d '\n\t'|grep -o '[^>]*</key><data>[^<]*'|while ...

Our "Cousin" has a number of good suggestions. The "BIOS" which is just the firmware of the machine and not strictly speaking a BIOS needs to be there and non-corrupt just like he said. You do need a battery and it needs to be good, it won't boot without it. That is what I would replace first. Just pop it out of the machine and take it to a batteries+ ...

The original answer is spot on; here's more detail on how to restore everything. Unless you've exported them from the Profiles window - you'd end up with things called "sweetprofile.terminal" - it's a little complicated. Make sure the Terminal app is closed. Go to your Library folder, and find the .plist file and .savedState directory: ~/Library/...

Assuming you're fairly default and using bash: http://www.tuxarena.com/2012/04/tutorial-colored-man-pages-how-it-works/ Short version: Add the following to your .bashrc file: export LESS_TERMCAP_mb=$(printf '\e[01;31m') # enter blinking mode – red export LESS_TERMCAP_md=$(printf '\e[01;35m') # enter double-bright mode – bold, magenta export ...

You can find it under Applications/Utilities. From there, you can drag it to your Dock to create an alias. See Mac Basics: The Dock for additional info on making the most of the Dock. To remove the Question Mark, drag it off the Dock until you see "Remove" then release.

To Get Firefox looking like Chrome and Safari By default, Firefox only applies color correction to images that have embedded color profiles. You can enable full color management to apply color correction to everything, including colors defined in CSS. Then it should look more like Chrome and Safari. In about:config (type that in to the address bar), set gfx....

After searching the Internet and experimenting I was able to produce a solution. You have to create a DefaultStyle.css file and put it in Contents subdirectory for each dictionary you want to fix. The dictionaries are located at ~/Library/Dictionaries or at /System/Library/Assets/com_apple_MobileAsset_DictionaryServices_dictionaryOSX/ folders. You can easily ...

Using /Applications/Utilities/DigitalColor Meter.app set to RGB as Actual Value, 8-bit and then hover over each color to find it's RGB color values. Color Values: ## COLOR HEX (RRR GGG BBB) 1 Red #E7A1A2 (231 161 162) 2 Orange #F9BA89 (249 186 137) 3 Peach #F7DD8F (247 221 143) 4 Yellow #FCFA90 (252 250 144) 5 Green ...

I finally found how to add profile: put the icm file on that directory: Macintosh HD\Library\ColorSync\Profiles And you'll see your profile here.... Anyway, this did not solved my issue, it looks like Apple really want us to buy their incredibly expensive screens. I surely regrets paying 30 boxes to upgrade to 10.8.

I joined just for saving anyone interested from the frustration I had in the last couple of hours. This fixed it for me (the universal patch).

Skala Color is another solution, that works very well in the latest versions of Mac OSX. You can select HEX to appear in place of the RGB code, which appears in the above picture. I used Hex Color Picker for a long time but finally got tired of it trying to be smarter than me. Frequently I would type a single character and it filled in all 6 values for ...

In Solarized Dark.terminal and Solarized Light.terminal, the 2*8 ANSI colors are specified in the sRGB color space, which seems to be identical with Device RGB at least on my iMac. The text, bold text, selection, cursor, and background colors are untagged, or shown as Generic RGB in the color picker. Terminal doesn't convert either of them to the color space ...

There's a third-party utility app called cDock that can change or remove the Dock's background. I can confirm it works for me on OS X 10.9.2. Just download it, run and select the "Install Transparent dock" option. You can also choose the "Install 10.8 style dock" option which will enable the theme from OS X 10.8. You can revert to the default dock at any ...

I think you can do this by installing a DEBUG trap in ~/.bash_profile. See the answer to this superuser question. I added the following: preexec() { tput setaf 4 : } preexec_invoke_exec() { [ -n "$COMP_LINE" ] && return local this_command=`HISTTIMEFORMATE= history 1 | sed -e "s/^[ ]*[0-9]*[ ]*//"`; preexec "$this_command" } ...

Ok I've found it. It's DCI-P3 standard: http://appleinsider.com/articles/16/09/09/apples-wide-color-screen-on-the-iphone-7-will-lead-to-more-faithful-color-reproduction Most modern android smartphones are already able to display the circle inside the red square, but probably are converting Adobe RGB or DCI-P3 color space to sRBG instead of displaying ...

(After reading all the literature I could find around the issue here's what I've learned) A disclaimer first There is a chance (as @Mr.Kennedy points out) that your system is suffering from issues with the quicklook generator. You may wish to read first his very thorough details on clearing the cache and debugging qlamanager's process of generating the ...

Both the LG 4K and 5K look great next to 2015 / 2016 MacBook and MacBook Pro at the angle you have photographed. You could try to set a custom color calibration curve for both displays to bring them closer, but the color shift you have photographed is very large. Also, be sure to set the contrast and brightness levels on the external display before you ...

It's not normal, but a known issue. The problem appears each time your MacBook Pro switches to a Discrete Graphics Card. There are a couple of things you could try, as a temporarily fix: Turn Off the Automatic Graphics Switching in System Preferences / Energy Saver, Reboot, and then turn it On again. This will make the Discrete Card to be initialized ...

It looks like it was possible before Mavericks by editing /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app/Contents/Resources/ShadowedIBeam.tiff I've tried changing that file, but it is never reflected in Terminal. I'd love to change this as I have a dark background color too.
