Try this: find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 md5 -r Note -print0 and -0 to handle spaces in filenames. Compared to find . -type f -exec, this solution runs md5 much less frequently, although this might not have a measurable impact.

Essentially what happens is that when you run that echo command without sudo, your locale settings are set to the wrong language and character set (because of your environment variables) - and when you run it with sudo, this is corrected because it then evaluates the environment of the sudo'ed user so that the character is set correct (probably to UTF-8). ...

At minimum, you need to consult with your boss. Together you should decide if you should contact you employer's lawyers, Apple's legal department or both. If you do not follow the rules, you put yourself and your employer at risk. I found the following quote on the macOS appstore: You can install apps on every Mac authorized for your personal use https:/...

You’ve done a pretty good job so far of troubleshooting this yourself and there are many things that prevent sleep out of the box and by design. What I would do next is exactly what you’re asking about - a targeted check to see if an application is what’s stopping your Mac from going to sleep. To do this, follow these steps: The next time your Mac isn’t ...

Chris Haertel's answer to a different question also works here, as evidenced by an Apple Discussions thread: In your user folder, go to ~/Library/Keychains/ (hold down the option key when clicking in the Go menu in Finder to show the Library folder). In that folder, there are the regular keychains, plus some folders with monstrously long names like ...

I'm the owner of Intel Power Gadget on macOS. Which core's frequency and temperature are shown by the Intel Power Gadget tool? On any Intel processor prior to Icelake, all cores run at the same frequency. In the current version of Power Gadget, frequency is read from a package scope register, so it's not reading a specific core's frequency. A future ...

I have a 2010 iMac and I'm running High Sierra. It has been running smoothly but my machine gets very sluggish sometimes when running Xcode. I can't compare it to El Capitan because it has been too long to recall. It has been as stable as Sierra though. I think the only issues you'd have would be due to having 4 GB of RAM. The size of the system would be ...

I found this... Catalina Link to App Store It may help trigger the search for updates but it didn't fix the issue for me either. Update: I ran the App Store link on my iMac that already has Catalina. App Store opened System Preferences and asked if I wanted to download Catalina. I answered yes and that downloaded the full installer. From there I made ...

File → Close Window (⇧⌘W). ⌘W closes the tab which will close the window if this is the last tab, but ⇧⌘W closes the window containing any number of tabs. This menu and shortcut is standard macOS working in all tabbed apps implementing macOS tabs, and Google Chrome has applied this shortcut to their tab implementation.

No, what you're asking is not natively possible. In other words, an application's Dock Tile menu does not natively allow for closing individual windows the app has open.

There are many possible answers, but before I offer them - Have you actually tried to go on and start the copying process? The initial estimate is - well - just an estimate, and after the first few megabytes, it may jump down to something more appealing. Now - the time it takes to copy 50GB from one drive to another, is not only bound by the hardware data-...

I had installed macOS Catalina Beta and it was packaged will scripting languages like python(2.7), ruby. python3 was not available in it. So probably they might remove it in next major release (10.16) or they might remove it in the stable version of 10.15. In the former case, everything would function as expected I believe.

Catalina drops support for more than just 32bit apps. Kernel Extensions are no longer supported for example. If Lightroom uses a kext, this will not work. Catalina also runs the system from a read only volume. If Lightroom requires modifying any of these folders, then you're out of luck. However, I don't believe the above is the cause. Correct me if I'm ...

You should ignore this and click cancel. This screen is an undocumented part of Apple's security practices (i.e. they don't mention it in their own documentation anywhere) and it exposes you to the risk that Apple will store, or could compromise (possibly resulting from a warrant/writ) your password for your local device. This is documented further here ...

The zip file cannot “self delete”. There is a setting for “Archive Utility” in most versions of Mac OS X / OSX / macOS where you can specify you’d like to delete Zip files after extraction.

In Safari, Firefox and Chrome as well, all you have to do is open the developer sidebar, select the network tab, and disable caching. In Safari that's a crossed out tube thing, the blue one next to the trash bin logo. Activate that, and the old permanent redirect should be ignored.

There is no downgrade option available which let's you 'go back to a previous macOS version'. Most Mac Apps automatically convert your Photo, Mail or iTunes files to a newer database version. So you won't be able to import Mails out-of-the-box from Mail (Mojave) into Mail (El Capitan). You will need to backup your data, first Erase your disk or volume ...
