Edit your PATH variable. Put /usr/local/bin before /usr/bin and possibly before many other dir's, as this allows anything you have specifically compiled/installed to override the system defaults. Obviously, take care that you know what's in /usr/local/bin first, but it sounds like you do.

I've found a workaround for the time being is to simply use OS X's standard bootloader and select 'Windows'. Because I have GRUB installed on that drive, instead of booting into Windows it takes me to GRUB's boot manager, where I can then choose Ubuntu. Not perfect, as I still have to go through two steps, but it works.

Symbolic link is the solution, take a look: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11198782/svn-use-from-default-path-usr-bin-instead-of-opt-local-bin You already have svn in two locations: /usr/bin/svn /usr/local/bin/svn If you create symbolic links for svn in /usr/local/bin with the same name, it will effectively remove the binaries from the macport. ...

the built in screen shot for mac is pretty good (as explain in other answer above, and I use that myself at home). but if you would like a bit more control, a bit more options (a lot more actually), like taking video, or editing the screen-shots (remove sensitive information, adding numbers, arrows etc), then you should try Snagit it is not free, but I ...

I think the accepted answer no longer holds. My version: OS X 10.9.4 I had some dashboard stickies disappear after a dashboard crash and was searching how to recover them (I had a recent TimeMachine backup). What did the trick was replacing the files: widget-com.apple.widget.stickies.plist com.apple.dashboard.plist in the directory ...

I had this exact same problem. I ended up having to boot into the internet recovery mode and do a fresh install of Yosemite. I had to wipe my hard disk clean using Disk Utility first. I've noticed that Yosemite now has the option to use your Apple ID login info to login to your computer much like Windows 8 does with your online Microsoft account that's used ...

If you're trying to change any of the 3 possible Computer Names on your Mac, use the scutil command as such: scutil --get ComputerName (or HostName or LocalHostName) to set them, sudo scutil --set ComputerName newComputerName (or HostName or LocalHostName) If the names are set to what you want them to be, you may need to uninstall/reinstall Synergy on ...

Boot loaders are SOOOO last century. Take some aspirin and get a copy of Virtual Box or VMware Fusion (the latter is my preference). Then you can run virtual machines simultaneously and avoid the boot loader nightmare. And you'll have the added benefit of being able to snapshot your images at a point in time and even branch the images for testing multiple ...

After a lot of fiddling around, I was successful at getting TDM (2011 27" iMac) to work with my 2013 MacBook air running Fedora 20. Install the ARandR GUI (yum install arandr) and connect the two machines with the thunderbolt to MiniDisplayPort cable. The cable has to be connected prior to booting Linux (at least for my Fedora install) or it won't be ...

My favourite tool for this is Disk Inventory X. It's got a fantastic graphical representation that I am struggling to describe using text. But basically it uses colour coded blocks - different colours for different types of data - and those blocks are sized according to how big the file or folder is. You can hover the mouse pointer over each block to find ...

You don't need to allow all UDP. The 'm' in mDNS means 'multicast', and it uses a specific multicast destination IP address called the "link local multicast address", and a UDP port number 5353. This means in your solution above, you are unnecessarily allowing traffic to all 65535 UDP ports to all 3.7 Billion routable IP addresses in the world to bypass ...

Your script is an applescript, not a shell script, so you can't execute it directly. I think it'd work to have the ossascript command interpret it: <array> <string>/usr/bin/osascript</string> <string>/Users/Shared/SCRIPT.sh</string> </array> (& please use a more appropriate file extension than ".sh") BTW, ...

Yes you can. for more detail: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1948 But do remember that flash drive has read/write cycle, don't want to break you flash drive by installing it there. Other option would be installing to external hard drive.

Rather than making the app in question full-screen, you might try moving it to a different desktop instead. The menu bar will still be there, and that app is the only one that has to be on that desktop, therefore creating the effect it seems you want to get.

One thing you could do is manually color and underline the link in question. The link is still clickable after you export it to pdf, regardless of whether or not you format it, but if you do, it will maintain the color and other general formatting you give it, making it look the way you want it to.

Try installing GrandPerspective, which is free. It gives you a visual overview of any folder you point it at, so you can rapidly see what is consuming your disk space. Another alternative is CleanMyMac 2, which unfortunately is not free, but you can trial it. It has a tremendous feature set, including: Clear your caches and logs. Lists your large files ...

AFAIK, there is no such thing. The O/Ses each handle filesystems differently, so I don't believe it'd be feasible or possible. However, depending on your coding language, I'd imagine you should be able to use the User-Agent from the HTTP header from the browser to determine the O/S it's from, and then use a select/switch/if block to set a string value to a ...

Have you checked your downloads folder? Clearing that out will free up space. Surprisingly I have seen people who never empty their trash folder which can often have GB's of stuff in there. Also open iPhoto and then click the iPhoto button then Clear iPhoto trash. All of these should free up some space.

You can set up xterm emulation in advanced preferences, at least in Terminal 2.4 (OS X 10.9.3). This enabled proper mouse support for me.

I had several like this that I couldn't make stack regardless of what I changed. What eventually fixed it was selecting all of them, checking them so they are in a compilation and then selecting them all and disabling that.

This has been fixed in Mavericks. To control on which display an application's windows appear, move your cursor to the Dock icon for that application. Right-click (or Ctrl-click) on the icon, then select Options > Desktop on Display 1 (or 2). You also have the option to assign to all desktops or to none.

On Ubuntu 12.04 you can use "Desktop Sharing" (type it into the search bar) as the server and take FeifanZ's suggestion for the Mac client. I set the whole thing up in 30 seconds.

You can prevent mouse interaction with Keyboard Maestro's app switcher: Demo: Alternatively, you can lock the mouse position whilst the ⌘ key is still held down: However, this doesn't appear to be possible without third party tools. You can provide feedback to Apple regarding this on the following page: http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html


2

Consensus[1] is that this isn't possible with built-in tools; however, you can use LiteSwitch X, a custom (free) command-tab app switcher, to disable mouse interaction in the command-tab view. I believe the preference is "Disable mouse rollover selection" under Advanced in the LiteSwitch preference pane.

Your Windows machines are likely finding each other using NetBIOS broadcast queries. They may even be using WINS servers for these "short names" (ipconfig /all will tell you). OS X doesn't use that ancient technology. Get used to FQDNs because they will work from anywhere. The world isn't flat anymore.

You could boot into recovery mode and reinstall Mavericks. Don't worry it won't delete your data.

The iTunes Music Store used Apple FairPlay DRM at launch in 2003, but started phasing it out in 2007 with the introduction of "iTunes Plus" higher-quality, DRM-free tunes for $1.29. At some point since then, with no fanfare, iTunes Plus became the standard, and all songs, even at the $0.69, $0.99, and of course $1.29 price points all became higher quality ...

Dropbox is started as a login item. These are stored in ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginitems.plist but this plist is a binary file. However, there is nothing here but the application to run.

James, I wanted to provide you with some additional information. According to our supported OS Guide, Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8.5) is not supported with the version of Whole Disk Encryption you installed.

I see from your question that you attempted to decrypt, but I am not sure what steps you took to kick off the encryption. I wanted to provide you with some additional recovery information.

The StackOverflow question you've quoted has been added another answer - there's fswatch utility right there in Homebrew. Please note fswatch command is more similar to inotifywatch, not inotifiwait. Means, instead of one-shot waiting for file changes and then exiting, it enters an infinite loop printing the changed files - so you can catch the changes with ...

I believe this answer will answer your question. To quote the relevant part: To enable te needed `atrun` daemon, as `man atrun` says, execute: launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.atrun.plist as root (e.g. via `sudo`). Once you've done that, `/var/at/` will be the key directory (though the simplest way is to use `at` as root -- ...

I would use the Power Query Add-In for this. I believe this is Windows only. Power Query can import CSV files and you can use the Merge command to join together two sets of data. http://office.microsoft.com/en-au/excel-help/merge-queries-HA104149757.aspx?CTT=5&origin=HA103993872

There's no way around it, you need to unlock the file (e.g. with chflags nouchg) first in order to change/replace it. Or, to put it another way, the "super command" you need is: super_cp() { chflags nouchg "$2" # Unlock the file to allow replacement cp "$1" "$2" # Replace the file chflags uchg "$2" # Relock the replacement } ...

Apple is aware of this and states "This is normal behavior for an IPS display, and the faint image will disappear over time." Unfortunately, it seems that nothing can be done to solves this. Possibly take it to an Apple store and describe the issue - see if they can give any recommendations.

Probably the routes on the win 7 that are not set. if you open a terminal and type in netstat -r, you should see if there is a route to your internal network through the vpn connection.

What you are seeing is image persistence, not burn in. It has to do with the clock frequency being sent to the display. The higher drive signal is causing the monitor to pass higher current to the individual pixels in the screen. It is not permanent, and is not harmful to the screen. An LCD works by sandwiching quartz crystals between two polarizing ...

The beta builds are independent of each other. You can have them installed concurrently or not.
