The easiest way to make a double-clickable script that runs in a new Terminal window is to end the file name with ".command". Then you can double-click on the script file itself, no need for a .app bundle/package. If you want to execute bash commands before Python, you can put both in the same file but wrap the Python code in a bash exec statement. TCL ...

I use the "Theme Font & Size Changer" add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/thunderbird/addon/theme-font-size-changer/ This add-on gives you a little GUI, where you can easily change the font-size of the thread-list (and the tree), without fiddling around in the css file.

I had the same problem, after remove the font set of Microsoft Office from my mac. The problem might be caused by conflicting font files, inhibiting Preview from starting up. I fixed the problem by removing the folder in the Terminal with rm -rf ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview/* and the fixing the fonts with the Font Book App, preinstalled on OSX. ...

SuperDuper! does just that, and I—like you—prefer an external USB drive ready to roll in the event of a disaster. Just install the software, select source and destination drives and away you go!

As the man page for mdutil states; bold emphasis is mine: The mdutil command is useful for managing the metadata stores for mounted volumes. So when you ask: Can you run mdutil on some arbitrary folder in your system and it will index recursively all subfolders, and nothing else on your system? Nope since mdutil is not a folder-based metadata ...

This might suffice, it shows how to view the logs directly from the installer: http://www.macissues.com/2014/04/08/check-what-the-os-x-installer-is-doing/ With the installer in focus, press "Command+L" or select "Window -> Installer Log" to open the installer log menu.

In 10.10 Yosemite (not sure about previous versions) you can scroll down using the trackpad or a mouse the same way you would a webpage. Put the mouse over the Terminal window, and scroll using the mouse wheel or two fingers on a touchpad.

In relation to the current developments for OS X 10.10, the ipfw executable commonly referred to, is no longer available.

Just found a work around for this problem. The issue is caused when the user is running displays off of a 3rd party USB display adaptor that uses the DisplayLink drivers. The work around is easy but involves sacrificing some of your display animations (which is totally worth it to me personally). Here's a link to the article where I found the answer: ...

If it was anything other than a Seagate 3TB I might optimistically support your rather hopeful "it's not hardware" assertion. However... https://www.backblaze.com/blog/hard-drive-reliability-stats-for-q2-2015/ & previous reports would inspire no confidence in that opinion. This image alone is sufficient to convey the appalling fail rate on those ...

Yes. This is exactly what "Search Domains" are for in DNS. In System Preferences > Networking > [Interface] > Advanced… > DNS > Search Domains…, enter "domain.com" in the list.

Forgot to add an answer, here it is a bit late: I tested Visual Studio on my Macbook with parallels, things did not run as quick as I wanted.

Disregarding suffix, you can use the file command to identify audio files. That is more complicated than an simple ls command can do, so one would use a script. For example (ID3 seems to be file jargon for MP3): #!/bin/sh for name in "$@" do case $(file "$name") in (*Audio*ID3*) ls -l "$name" ;; esac done Putting that in your ...

You can simply go to the directory that you wish to query by using the cd command to get to the directory you want to query. Than type in ls *.mp3 to list all files with the extension of the file you wish to find.

sed is unlikely to do that in any implementation. The command touch -t 19700101 configure.ac tells touch to set the timestamp to a bogus date (because only 8 digits are given) using MM = 19 DD = 70 hh = 01 mm = 01 You probably intended touch -t 197001010000 configure.ac (8 digits for 19700101, plus 4 more digits for 0000), although you can run ...

So here is my forensics on what you are presenting: The Basics 239.0.5.49 is a multicast address in the administratively-scoped (local) multicast range of addresses from 239.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255. Since 89.86.97.2 resolves to Bouygues Telecom, my best guess is that is your outward/WAN interface address or perhaps a router on the Bouygues Telecom ...

You list the output of three commands without seeming to understand them. Configure complains that it cannot find the I2util library. It fails. You try to ignore that and compile anyway. This fails since the makefile is not yet ready, probably because it requires you to run the autotools first (which failed in the previous step). Result: nothing is done. ...

In my case it was good enough to comment out the fullscreen part of the extended.vim config file found under ~/.vim_runtime/vimrcs/extended.vim.

In the Simulator menu on top click on "Window" -> "Stay in Front". This places the Simulator to stay always as top window above all other windows.

ps | tr -s ' ' | cut -d ' ' -f 2 will give you a list of PIDs. cut takes the second field of output separated by spaces, but before that we use tr to squeeze out multiple spaces. You can then pipe that through egrep '\d{4}\d*' to select all numbers over 1000. Then you could probably send it to xarg for killing. 1000 is easy, but for an arbitrary number ...

You could use this command : ps -ef | grep "your_process" | awk '{print $2}' | grep -v 'grep' | xargs kill Note : "Your_process" would be your "PID" Else : ps -ef | grep "your_process" | awk '{print $2}' | xargs kill would be a worth to try
