A mac I had would have graphical problems similar to what you're describing when the logic board was going out. So that might be the answer to your first question. That being said, the problem on mine wasn't only when the machine booted up.

For a general solution you'll want to use Karabiner. It'll let you remap things for all your applications and it comes with tons of options as well as the ability to customize and create your own mappings if you want. Check out this answer for an example of how to go about creating new mappings or check out their (fairly friendly) documentation here.

I also like vim! I was looking for something very similar (I use jk but some difference). I figured it out! TL;DR You want to use the Karabiner app It's a little bit confusing at first but they have tons of options for remapping keys. The one you're looking for is going to involve "simultaneous keys" fortunately there's a search so if you search for ...

Yes. (Don't know what else to say. There's nothing stopping you from transferring files between file systems except for edge cases where the file names or sizes are unacceptable to the destination file system. The former is easily fixed though.)

Rather than fumble around trying to find potential strings, I'd just use Image Capture or RCDefaultApp to switch off the 'insert media' issue Set these all to 'Ignore' & Secrets pref pane for the 'undiscovered' ones.

Apparently, slamming down your fist directly on the trackpad three times is a secret command to tell it to begin working properly. After this, there is no need to disable or move drivers, restart the computer, or plug in additional peripherals.

Making the assumption that the source text you are copying is being displayed as a list, you want to use the "Edit -> Paste and Match Style" option. For example, the following list created using the SE markdown: lorem ipsum dolar sit amet Appears thusly when I highlight it, copy and then just use command-v to paste: But appears thusly when I use ...

I had the same problem too with Yosemite and a QNAP HS-251 NAS with 4.1.3 firmware. None of these solutions worked for me.

I had a similar problem when trying to connect to an Apache server running on 10.10.3 using client & server certificates. The python script worked on the SSL server certificate for Apache to use, but Safari still couldn't connect to the server using the client certificate in the keychain; the Apache server was rejecting the client certificate. I had to ...

I have two on the go right now. I have one installed in my Dropbox directory and one on my localhost. I have shortcuts to both in my start menu. You can maintain as many different installations as you like by using the portable versions that are available on the download page. Addition: You may be interested in projects and workspaces. I haven't used them, ...

Found the answer: it's ~/Library/Thunderbird, not ~/Library/Application\ Support/Thunderbird. This, of course, is plain wrong, as the ~/Library namespace should be reserved for generic concepts.

To create a Smart Folder to search multiple folders, you have to do some of the work manually. Decide exactly which folders you want to search. Select one of those folders in Finder, and create a Smart Folder and for "Search:" use the specific folder you selected, not "This Mac". Add the other search criteria you require as normal, e.g. file types etc. ...

I've created a bash script which takes screen-shots every few seconds, combines them into an mp4 every hour, and combines the hourly mp4s into daily ones each day. Uses ImageMagick to overly the current time on each screenshot, and ffmpeg to combine the screenshots into videos. http://damianblog.com/2015/05/26/macblackbox/

The man page that you are showing is showing information about NFS. This is probably from the mount_nfs man page, or perhaps the mount man page. This man page for iso9660 does not show such an option. Understand that the "mount" command may simply pass information to a more specific executable that supports a filesystem, like mount_cd9660. If the ...

I don't think it's settable per app, only per file or globally - unless the app itself includes that functionality, like TextEdit etc. There is no option within Grab itself - see The Complete Guide to Mac OS X Screenshots The extension is always there, btw, merely hidden.

You can install ImageMagick utils and use identify command for that. You can install it via brew install ImageMagick. Here is the suggestion how you can use this tool: identify -verbose *.jpg | grep -we ^Image -e exif:DateTime | grep -C1 " [1-5].:..:" It should print the files matching the criteria in format like: Image: Foo.jpg exif:DateTime: ...

Got an answer on Ask Different: The solution is to open the app, which seems to be more like a double-click on the app icon. That is, one has to replace the program to be called by /usr/bin/open and pass the app as an argument as follows within the launchd.plist: <key>Program</key> <string>/usr/bin/open</string> ...

I know file systems can handle time differently, so this is likely the source of the discrepancy. You can adjust the threshold of the mod-time comparison with --modify-window. # Ignore up to a 5 second difference. Tighten up as desired. rsync --modify-window=5 do whatever... Enjoy

Simply download a static build of ffmpeg from ffmpeg.org, extract it, and use that: ffmpeg -i input.wav -c:a libvorbis -qscale:a 3 output.ogg This will convert the audio to Vorbis, using the default quality of 3. The quality range is 0–10 where 10 is the highest.

I had the same problem a lot and what I've learned so far: doing a successful fsck is essential. As this is not working at your machine I think this should be your approach for a fix: which version of hfsprogs / fsck.hfsplus have you installed? on my machine (running Debian) I installed it from source (using the downloads from a different source) wget ...

To elaborate on the above comment, it is almost certainly not possible if it is OEM software. However, there may be a solution for your specific program. Also vendors often offer upgrades at significantly reduced prices for OEM software, and every now and then it's worth it. I would recommend Google as well as the vendor's website, and search for ...

I am experiencing the same issue. It seems to randomly happen unless the system is under load then it is more likely to occur. I am more easily able to reproduce the issue by uploading large amount of content to the cloud such as a 5 gigabyte family movie, while watching a streaming video on the internet. The issue will usually occur within a few minutes. ...

According to my tests and these three pages, multi-layer or multi-page TIFFs have the PageNumber tag and transparent TIFFs have the ExtraSamples tag set to either 1 or 2.

This thread comes up on a lot of Google searches for Mac OS X compatibility with SonicWall VPNs, so even though the thread is old, I just wanted to post that YES, Mac OS X's native VPN client works fine with SonicWall's L2TP VPN. Third-party VPN clients are nice and full-featured, but certainly not required. Proper configuration is necessary on the UTM-side, ...

I think that your problem is basically how to turn off journaling without using OSX. This requires the binary editing (hacking) of the disk header, and as a result the disk space taken up by the journal will probably be lost. Here are pointers to two rather similar C programs that claim to do just that : Program 1 Program 2 I cannot guarantee that ...

I'd set up an alias to automatically add -a to all ls invocations. You can set up an alias in your .profile/.bashrc/.bash_aliases file (or wherever you so choose to have aliases defined, by default, I think OS X has them in .bashrc). Just add the following line, then run source <filename> to reload its configs or start up a new terminal window. alias ...

I also have to change input source 50 times a day and came up with a useful method. Karabiner app might help you with this by customising Mac keybord settings.

If you're on the computer (or mobile), it shouldn't really matter who the person on the other end of the phone is. The same software that records video also records audio, then using a tool such as VLC or ffmpeg, you should be able to extract just the audio from the file and discard the video. This string is an example of the command for ffmpeg to extract ...
