Looks like you can just download the zip for "Snow Leopard and Above 64bit", unzip the file once it's finished downloading (by double clicking it or using the commandline tool unzip), and then you have the binaries. Then you just have to decide where to put the binaries. Since you don't want an admin password, it's probably best to keep them in your home ...

From the docs: You need to mount rEFInd first using (assuming rEFInd is the first partition of disk0) sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/esp Then sudo rm -r /Volumes/esp/EFI

On Windows: Ctrl-\ can be typed using AltGr-RCtrl-ß. Make sure that you press them in the correct order (AltGr first) and use the right control key. That's the only way it'd work. Same goes for Ctrl-[. You can reach it through AltGr-RCtrl-8 It may depend on the application. I tested them on Emacs and they work

In addition to the options to use a scroll wheel or two-finger swipe to scroll, you can bring back the scroll bar in System Preferences -> General pane -> Set "Show scroll bars:" to "Always".

If you have an Apple magic mouse, the scroll wheel is invisible. Just use your finger where the wheel "should" be and it will scroll. Same goes for the Magic trackpad, 2 finger swipe up/down/left/right. One thing of note, Apple changed the scroll direction in OS X (cant remember which version. They call it "Natural Scrolling," which is anything but. I ...

Use two fingers on the trackpad. Dependent on settings, move them up to scroll down or move them down to scroll up

Was not HDD failure in my case. The HDD did not boot up when plugged into another computer (perhaps because the second computer was not a mac maybe). The HDD still worked after getting wiped however. The mother board shorted out in my case.

The problem is that the VMs run using a different application, one contained within VirtualBox.app. The Add Application dialog does not allow you to browse deeper into the .app file (like you'd normally do by using "Show Package Contents" in Finder). One workaround to this is to create a symbolic link to the application that's running VMs. Here's an example ...

I am assuming that you are using IP addresses to ping with, and not the hostname (if the latter then you have a hostname resolution issue). For the former, it is most likely a firewall issue. When Windows firewall is on (as the default settings) in Windows XP computer, it will not respond to ping requests, so obviously you can’t ping to the particular ...

In the upper left corner of your screen there is a small "box" that looks like three books set on their sides (if you hover over it it says "Customize and control Google Chrome"). Click on that. There will be an option called "settings" click on that. Once you are in settings, scroll down to the bottom of the page; click on "Advanced settings". Scroll down ...

Assuming you have PNG files page1.png, page2.png,... page9.png and you want to create a 9-page PDF from these input PNGs.

It's possible that the partition is damaged or it just can't be read form Windows for some reason. If MAC is able to mount it properly probably Linux will do as well. You can try booting with some Linux live CD and move the data to a different drive. Once you get all the data copied to another place test the drive using the manufacturer's diagnostics tool. ...

Preview application makes it easier: 1) select all your images in Finder (you can sort by type in Finder) 2) right click on selection, choose Open or Open in Application Preview All files should be opened in one window with side scroller. At this scroller transparency images will be showed with gray background.

I am using Andreas Hegenberg’s free BetterTouchTool to do exactly this. Despite its name, it provides great keyboard shortcuts. And also, it all resides without the app bundle, so there is no deep tinkering with system files.

Windows XP most likely requires you to partition the drive using a Master Boot Record rather than the Mac-default GUID Partition Table BEFORE you start the installation; you can do this by booting from a MacOS X install DVD, going to Utilities > Disk Utility, choosing your disk, and going to the Partition tab, under which the Advanced button will give you ...

I haven't tested with a crashed app, but System Prefs > General > check 'Close windows when quitting..' might do it. If not, then perhaps deleting this folder might do it - ~/Library/Saved Application State/com.microsoft.Word.savedState

This command should work. Execute it after you've navigated to the directory that contains all the files (and directories) starting with ._. It will also process sub-directories and hide all folders and files that start with ._. ATTRIB +H /S /D ._* If you have Show hidden files enabled, then you will still see these files. As a workaround, set the ...

If you show invisible files, you'll see them. The Mac can be told to not write them, & tbh, I've never noticed any performance hit in doing that. See Is there any way to prevent a Mac from creating dot underscore files?

Click on the synergy 'circle' in the menu-bar, select 'show' and then Synergy should be accessible as a normal app window (CMD-TAB to the circle icon). In the configuration window you should be able to deselect the 'server' setting and set up the client setting..

This doesn't answer your question of "How can I find out how my memory is being used? Which folder is taking most of the memory?" (others have provided that). But I usually perform the following as free space shrinks. Clear the browser history sudo rm -rf /Library/Caches/* rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/* ~/Library/Caches/ seems to accumulate a lot of cruft ...

Ctrl + arrow keys in vim are not assigned: all vim is doing is processing the raw characters. You skip one word to the left/right with the command (not in insert mode, of course) b/w. You can find a cheat sheet for Linux vim/vi editor here.

As far as I know, this is the original behaviour of // MARK:. Instead, you should try: #pragma mark Test1 #pragma mark - #pragma mark Test2

Try using Karabiner. This is the app that made this possible for me. But I wish this was embedded into the OS X. Yosemite in particular.

There is NO way to do this. This is because the keyboard sends the ASCII values for the computer / mac to process. It does not send the key presses for the computer to process. For Example : Shift pressed on keyboard one is not sending anything to the computer to process. It is still waiting for another key press and it is a modifier, so it can send ...

Maybe you could use SleepWatcher (running with Mac OS X 10.5 to OS X 10.10). Is a command line tool (daemon) for OS X that monitors sleep, wakeup and idleness of a Mac. It can be used to execute a Unix command when the Mac or the display of the Mac goes to sleep mode or wakes up, after a given time without user interaction or when the user resumes ...

Zsh on its own starts up in around 0.1 second for me, which is plenty good enough. I just noticed as I got near the 50,000 command history mark that it became more like 3 seconds to load up the first prompt. I dunno how you guys are finding all these other reasons for slow startup, but mine was exactly what my first guess was. I did a mv ~/.zsh_history ...

It sounds like you 'Cut' the files to the other drive (instead of 'Copy'), and midway through the operation the disk ran out of space. Unless you hit the 'Delete' button, none of your pictures should've gone missing. Your missing files are likely stored on the second drive, which is the drive that warned that it is full. In the long run you might want ...

If you can’t use UNETbootin because your system is out of date, instead of using UNETbootin—or similar packaged “Make a bootable USB” tools—you can create a bootable USB right from the command line in Terminal as explained here. I am reworking those instructions because there are a few unclear/out-of-date things that should be ironed out. And why not clear ...

I'm interpreting this question as being a problem with the .iso not being recognized by the wizard function within bootcamp (when it asks to create a bootable USB Drive from the windows .iso) (btw, win 7 isos are available for direct download from MS at - http://www.techverse.net/download-windows-7-iso-x86-x64-microsofts-official-servers/) I encountered ...

In windows you are supposed to use the "Safely Eject" option as there could be data still being transferred and could potentially corrupt the data/disk but windows doesn't give you a popup or moan at you if you just pull out the USB. The Mac on the other-hand likes to alert you if you unplug a USB stick as there could be something accessing it in the ...

I figured it out. I guess newer versions of OS X disable port forwarding by default and unfortunately there's no UI for this so you need to use the following Terminal commands to enable it: sudo sysctl -w net.inet.ip.fw.enable=1 sudo sysctl -w net.inet.ip.forwarding=1 sudo sysctl -w net.inet6.ip6.forwarding=1

You don't need to change any config file, if you write all your settings to .bash_profile, like you normally do to set up your terminal, and create a link named .bashrc pointing to your .bash_profile for the screen sessions via: $ ln -s ~/.bash_profile ~/.bashrc Any changes made to one of the files are stored in .bash_profile but also accessible by ...

You can use a launchctl script and add it to /System/Library/LaunchAemons/smtp.plist. I'm currently using this to automatically set up a ssh tunnel for sending emails.

This is normal. Bundles are not intended to run as standalone executables, but to be loaded as plug-ins into some other program (in this case Waves). It's generally not possible to run them on their own.

For further analysis, one would need to investigate the whole debug buffer. Setting tramp-verbose to 500 looks impressive, a value of 10 would suffice already :-) You could send me the debug buffer directly per email for analysis. Or use the Tramp mailing list.

You can use symlink and leave the folder in Downloads. It's just one line. $ ln -s ~/Downloads/eclipse/Eclipse.app /Applications/eclipse This creates a symlink named eclipse. When you click Application folder on Dock and press E, a eclipse icon (with small arrow for shorcut) will appear.

I just wonder do you really use Bash? May be you can use echo $SHELL, it is quite possible that you are using zsh, have you installed on-my-zh? Acutually I encounter the same problem as you, I fix it by configuring ~/.zshrc instead either ~/.bash_profile for login shell or ~/.bashrc for non-login shell. Maybe you can have a try
