Get macOS Mojave directly from the App Store and install it. This will give you the most recent version of 10.14.6, you won't need to run the combo updater afterwards.

The menubar app Bailiff lets your pin files on your drive and evict them without needing to wait for the background processes to do the work for you. https://eclecticlight.co/cirrus-bailiff/ Once you’ve got the files removed, you still need to wait for snapshots to purge. The df command isn’t going to show you purgeable content, so this tool. It might not ...

1) First ensure you have the appropriate system setup: defaults write -g NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool Yes 2) Then use: defaults write com.apple.dt.Xcode NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool FALSE Enjoy! You can also configure any other app by knowing its BundleID. For example: App Store.app -> com.apple.AppStore Calendar.app -> com.apple.iCal ...

To add to the accepted answer, you may need to turn off the new "just font smoothing" implementation after enabling subpixel antialiasing. This solves the pixelated text issue user benwiggy commented about on a 13.3" mid-2012 MacBook Pro (1280 x 800 non-retina screen) and especially for very small font sizes. By leaving the font smoothing option enabled ...

I'm seeing this quite prominently with the latest update to Google Chrome Remote Desktop. Sure would be great if they fixed it, but I'm not holding my breath. Uninstalling the app works to fix the issue of course.

The primary difference is that disk0 is your physical disk and it contains three things: GPT header table, EFI partition (that does not share space with the other partition disk0s2), APFS Container (that does not share space with the other partition disk0s1). disk1 is how the APFS container is shared out to store other files that all share free space. The ...

I would suggest putting on APFS as you have SSD drive even the current situation will not hamper anything but you can use the optimal resource as required when you put on APFS. APFS, or Apple File System, is the default file system for solid-state drives and flash memory in 2017’s macOS High Sierra. If you’ve got a mechanical hard drive, and you intend to ...

Interesting. One setting I would check to see if it's enabled is if it's set to log you out after a certain amount of time. You can do this by going to the system preferences, then security & privacy, then click the advanced button on the lower right corner and the option will be shown.

You have some errors in your power settings. hibernatemode 3. 3 is the default for portables; since you have a Mac mini, this is incorrect; it should be 0 (default) for desktops. standby 1. If you don't want your machine to go into standby at all, this should be set to 0 autopoweroff seems to be missing. This should also be set to 0 as it's enabled by ...

I found the solution to my issue. I was attempting to connect with the wrong hostname. Bottom line: Double, no, triple check the hostname you're connecting to. A lot of these types of issues is caused by innocent, simple mistakes such as this.

If CleanMyMac is going to remove the files from their present location, then yes, they will be removed from your Photos Library. You would be better off going to "About This Mac" under the apple menu, and on the Storage tab, click "Manage". Then click on "Store in iCloud", and select Photos. As a general rule, I avoid all apps that claim to 'clean', '...

Shells remember the paths to commands you've executed during a session. You can use the hash command to manage the remembered paths (from man bash): hash [-lr] [-p filename] [-dt] [name] For each name, the full file name of the command is determined by searching the directories in $PATH and remembered. If the -p option is supplied, no path search is ...

Root isn’t what you need, SIP must be disabled if you desire to modify the system files while booted from the same system as the files to be edited. A centerpiece is the protection of system-owned files and directories against modifications by processes without a specific "entitlement", even when executed by the root user or a user with root privileges (...

Names aren’t associated to adapters, it’s the hostname of the computer. Why it’s the WiFi and not the LAN is basically which one got assigned first. You only have one entry because, well, you can only have one. Many routers have a mDNS service (usually attached to DHCP) that manages the resolution of host names to IP addresses. This is a 1-to-1 ...

I am already on 10.14.6 so can't confirm this but have downloaded 10.14.6 Update (I didn't check the Combo Update) and looking the .pkg with Suspicious Package shows it includes Safari version 12 not version 13. Note it is 12.1.2 not 12.1.1 as you now have. Mojave 10.14.6 Supplemental Update also contains Safari 12.1.2. It isn't clear why you aren't ...

You can choose the time to start / end your day with macOS Calendar - it's in the general setting. For specific events, Calendar app should do natural language scheduling like many third party calendar apps have done for quite some time. https://flexibits.com/fantastical Fantasitcal has a free trail and is worth every penny in my experience, but you can ...

Unfortunately there's no way of stopping the decryption process. The error message you get indicate that either your file system is corrupt, or there's a bug in Apple's APFS implementation. You can try downgrading and/or upgrading macOS (if a newer version is available). This might fix the problem as you could possibly work around a possible bug. Apart ...

This worked for me in MacOS Catalina 10.15.2 defaults write com.apple.dock ResetLaunchPad -bool true; killall Dock

I can offer you a work around. Go to you Pictures folder Right click your Photos library, "Show Package Contents" All photos are in the "Masters" folder. Create a new Photo library and import. At 178GB I'm guessing you have some level of organization, folders, etc. I'm unsure if that's recoverable.

I faced the same problem here, and after investigating, I realized the problem was due to the number of processes my mac was running. In my case, a cronjob was triggering multiple httpd threads (more than a hundred). You can: open activity monitor and kill those processes; check your crontab -e and look for suspicious jobs

I had the same issue since starting to use a VPN a couple of months ago - just switched the VPN off and retried and it's working fine - not an ideal fix, but gets around the problem for now... This might fix your issue as well.

Not sure if this would solve the issue but you could try and pass by the Apple store or certified repair center and see if they could help you recalibrate the trackpad. Service centers have tools to calibrate trackpads. I've been an Apple Certified Mac Technician for 6 years and we do this every time a machine has been opened.
