.CDR and .ISO files are not the same thing. You can convert your .CDR file to an .ISO file by using Terminal in Mac OS X. Let's use a file named BOOTCAMP.cdr for my example. Follow these steps: 1. Move BOOTCAMP.cdr file (created by Disk Utility) to the desktop of your Mac. 2. Start Terminal. 3. Type: cd ~/desktop then press Enter. 4. Type: hdiutil ...

There's a -literal option: mdfind -literal "kMDItemDisplayName == filename" I don't know if this can be shortened, but it seems to work for me.

I know this is an old question, but I've had the same problem. If you have a Macbook Retina Pro, it doesn't have an audio line in built in as opposed to the next model down (without the Retina screen). I have no idea why Apple decided to remove the port from the Retina model, since it can't cost them that much.

Using a shell loop Something like a simple loop, iterating over two directories and then matching files: for dir in /usr/bin /usr/sbin; do for file in "$dir/"*ntp*; do sudo cp "$dir/$file" "$dir/$file.old" done done This will copy all files matching the *ntp* pattern in both directories to the same file name, with .old appended. Make sure to ...

There are some vague or basic categorizations available under the "Alternative Repositories" section of http://braumeister.org/ - though certainly not nearly as comprehensive as what you're suggesting. While certain categorization and sort methods you mention sound extremely useful, I have a feeling they are a quite challenging to implement in a very ...

I've had a lot of luck using the homebrew package manager on OS X. Check if you have it using your terminal: $ which brew If no path is given, install it: $ ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" Afterwards, diagnose and troubleshoot any problems, then make sure brew is up to date. $ brew doctor $ brew ...

OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) appears to have a checkbox setting that would be helpful if selected: TextEdit > Preferences > Open and Save When Opening a File: [checkbox] Display HTML files as HTML code instead of formatted text (This is a later version than discussed earlier but could be helpful to others with similar or related problems.)

Unlike a Thinkpad, there is no way to control the firmware on a Mac. The only way I have found to stop the charge while running off the line power is to insert a thin piece of paper between the plug and the laptop. If you block the middle conductor, the laptop will be unable to identify the power supply, and will therefore refuse to charge the battery, ...

Generally, @ represents a symbolic link. There are certain relatively standard format indicators often appended to a filename when displaying it in a list of files, to let you quickly have some idea what it is; I'm not sure if they originated with ls, but ls -F has a nice list of them: / is a directory, @ is a symbolic link (meaning the file is really ...

When you open your Time Machine backup folder on the Time Machine volume, you can still see each individual directory, so wherever your Git repositories are stored as bare repos, you will be able to find and copy them.

It turns out this is perfectly possible, but did not work initially because X11 was not installed. Apparently it is not included in Yosemite. Installing it solved the problem.

I would suggest using a host-only network and use port forwarding on your host into the VM if you need access to the VM from somewhere else in the network. Mounting the VM to your network using the Bridged connection is always on the slow side.

I've noticed the same problem after software updates to Mac OS 10.9.5. If someone already mentioned this approach, I apologize for repeating. I have messages both "On My Mac" (Messages I save directly on my hard drive) and on my MS Exchange account on the server. Some of the confusion comes in because "On My Mac" emails are not show when you use "Get ...

I was in the same situation when backing up a 12GB directory. I fixed it by using the ditto command which was readily available with the OS X Yosemite installation: ditto -x -k file.zip dst-directory -x to extract an archive -k Specifies it to be a PKZip archive instead of the default CPIO

This is a shot in the dark, but are you running the 32 bit or 64 bit version? I'm using 2.15.2 and the 32 bit version runs but the 64 bit version doesn't. (I would have posted this as a comment to Randy's answer, but hooray for reputation-based comment blocks...)

Tetsujin is right; in this case, a move copies, then deletes the original. There are also a couple things I want to add. First, that only applies when moving between volumes. If you're moving from one place to another on the same volume, then a move will be nearly instant because it only needs to change a small amount of data that specifies where the file ...

I have tried brew install openssl, but this only returns a message that openssl is already installed.

I've never had any problems with my Mac browsing around the internet.

How to login to a Mac to access files from a PC? Macs use Apple Remote Desktop (ARD), which is a dumbed down version of VNC. Its can be quite dangerous to use because Apple artificially limits the password to 8 characters or less. So never allow an Apple device to face the internet with ARD enabled. Windows uses Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), which is ...

Seems like you might already have found a solution but I think the easiest way is to set up an FTP server on your Windows and access it from your Mac with an FTP client. Filezilla is an example of a free FTP server and client that will work with your platforms, though I do not have any personal experience with that program. Easy to setup, easy to access. ...

Almost all "cloud storage" (such as iCloud, dropbox, google drive, etc) is really cloud backup. i.e. it duplicates a copy from your computer. You can get online storage that works similar to an external drive by using ftp, sshfs, or other network protocols. This can be a bit tougher to set up though...

Define the custom prompt of root in his .bash_profile, not in your regular user's profile. Usually this is the default setup anyway, without manually having to edit it. Note that when you use su without arguments, it doesn't read root's rc files, that's why the prompt doesn't change. To make su read root's rc files, use su - (with a dash as parameter). That ...

Yes, your multiple terminals is the reason. The bash history is written when you exit the shell, not individually for each command.

Another way to get to your hidden user library directory. Switch to the "Finder" and hold down the "Option" key and select "Go" in the Menu Bar up top and you will see "Library" listed. Select this item and from there you can navigate the path provided to you in the previous post.

The problem is fixed as of December 20th, 2014 on OS X Yosemite. I'm not sure when Apple released the newer version of OS X, but currently I can open Google Chrome using the normal method and move my mouse without it crashing. The prior patch listed above will cause the program to crash if you move your mouse when starting Chrome.

If someone else is still interested in how to swap the § key with ~, I use Karabiner to do that and it's pretty easy to use. Just look for that option which is included in the default ones among others. It can also be used to remap other keys if you want. For example, you can use hjkl keys to emulate the arrow keys (vim users will love it).

I believe it's impossible. Yes there's the snipping tool, a great one, but you have to open it... IF you're a Dropbox user, with the tool launched, it may store .png files to your cloud after a PrntSreen. (Not a third-party for me as Dropbox is always open)

Until asteri clarified the question, I thought John1024 had the answer. Now it seems that the following will work without the --color option: ls -d $(ls | head -30) Unfortunately this is too simplistic and will fail if there are blanks in the file names. To take account of that you need the more elaborate: ls -b | head -30 | xargs ls -d In both cases ...

To get coloring: ls -l --color=always | head -30 Normally, ls produces color only when the output is going directly to a terminal. This is generally a good thing. To override that, use --color=always The above produces output with one file per line. If you want, space allowing, more files per line, then try: ls -l | head -30 | column The column ...

I found that applications would refuse to open an SVG on OSX unless I gave it the correct extension. So I renamed the file to, in my case, pprof.svg. I was then able to "open with" Chrome.
