Add a sticky to each desktop, with the desktop label. Then you can right-click on the app icon and switch between desktops!

rsync can do this. I've installed rsync 3.1.3 via MacPorts at both ends, run one end as a daemon, and used -aX as flags.

It's possible that the problem is not the driver files themselves, but the settings that they have. You'll find most of the CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) settings in /etc/cups, though just copying them en masse may be extreme. These include print queues (what MacOS calls "printers"), and their configurations. You can also access the CUPS settings ...

Try to ssh into one machine and use cp -avi -p. -i = interactive, -p = preserve directory attributes , -v = verbose. I almost always use cp -avi which preservers structures and attributes of files being copied , with the exception of directory attributes. From man cp -p: Cause cp to preserve the following attributes of each source file in the copy: ...

None whatsoever. Leave it alone, it will get there. If it's claiming such astronomical time remaining, it's based on 'how fast it went so far vs how long it thought it should have taken'. That's a variable dependant on many things - HD vs SSD, space remaining on drive etc. Also, your download speed will have an effect - maybe significant if your ...

Re-installing as suggested above will fix the problem - temporarily! The next day you will end up in exactly the same situation, unless you stop all automatic updates from taking place. The cause of the problem is a BUG in the 2019-004 10.13.6 High Sierra update, affecting my Mac Mini Server mid-2011, and obviously more mid-2011 machines. I have forwarded ...

Had the same issue on MBP 15" 2013 since upgrading to Mojave: macbook restarts each time if left to sleep on battery power (no issues when connected to the grid), Apple support silent. Caught exact error message upon reboot: Sleep transition timed out after 180 seconds while creating hibernation file or while calling rootDomain's clients about upcoming ...

While this is not a final solution, I have found an interesting behaviour that may lead to a real solution if someone can figure out how terminal is doing this. Using macOS 10.14.6, Terminal 2.9.5 (421.2), I get much the same results as all of the above except, if I am in mc [midnight-commander: stable 4.8.22 (bottled)] the window list shows entries like ...

I see from your panic report that this is a mid-2010 15" MacBook Pro. Unfortunately, this model was prone to having problems with its dedicated graphics card and while Apple did have an extended repair program for this model, that extra coverage has now ended. However, there are a few things you can do to minimise the problem. gfxCardStatus Many users ...

You could try http://dosdude1.com/mojave/, although I don't know if that would work in your configuration.

AFAIR there never was an official way to access data on an iPhone/iPad from macOS through Finder. It may be possible with a jailbroken device, but that's for somebody else to provide an answer on that. There are various other ways to transfer data between iOS and macOS though: use iCloud drive on both and store documents there AirDrop (which, if it works, ...

In the past I was able to use iOS devices as USB drives. You appear to be mistaken. This has never been possible without third-party software and/or jailbreaking. It was possible to use older iPods in "disk mode" as storage devices. However, this feature was never available for the iPod Touch, nor for any version of the iPhone. Some iOS applications ...

I know exactly what you're asking about, and I've been through the same problem. Multiple profiles solves most of the problem you describe, but in my case, I need two different instances of chrome where, as you say, CTRL-Q would affect them separately. Essentially, this is the situation where I would usually just use Chrome for one purpose and Firefox for ...

Try closing terminal window and opening it again. Rsync changes only take place after closing terminal session. Helped in my case.

The MACOS Calendar.app's workflow is a bit counterintuitive. You would think that it would add at least a default type of notification (called "alert" in MACOS calendar.app ) for each event... it does not however. You have to pick and choose yourself. Here is a quick example: I had added one default alert, and I am showing adding a Custom alert in ...

Make sure event notifications are enabled for whichever calendar you're adding the events to.

Try going to system settings > general > show scroll bars > always.

I would have commented on Peku2455's answer, but I don't have 50 rep. So here is the solution, based on Peku's answer (which is missing the -o switch to fix overallocation) In Terminal in Recovery Mode (press Command+R while booting, select Utilities -> Terminal): diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk0 fsck_apfs -oy /dev/disk0

Had a similar problem MacBook Pro 2018, Belkin dock and USB-C HP monitor. go to System Preferences > Software Updates install all pending updates reboot Now it is working again.

I have a calendar for tentative events and I move them there / make that my default calendar. Once I accept the meeting, I recategorize it according to my other colors / must attend / optional / travel / etc... It’s not automatic, but it works to get things color coded.

I had a similar experience, but my setup is a bit unusual. I have: Originally a Fusion Drive (128SSD+1TBHDD), which I swapped the HDD for a third party SSD (Crucial MX500 (1TB)). And yes, I recreated the Fusion drive after the swap. So, now I am back to the original Fusion Drive of 1.2TB, but composed of two SSDs (both APFS). A bit more RAM than most ...
