So firstly: Seemed to work, other than an Error: Directory not empty @ dir_s_rmdir - /private/tmp/d20210325-18632-lb7ib2 Im guessing the the error was the last output from your install command and therefore it is telling you that things actually did not seem to work. And that you package was not installed. Try this: sudo chown -R <your-user-name>:...

In my case there was "Change Picture" selected in "Desktop & Screen Saver" menu. It's still possible to uncheck this programatically: /usr/bin/osascript -e 'tell application "System Events" tell current desktop set picture rotation to 0 end tell end tell ' Now you can use this: /usr/bin/osascript -e 'tell ...

I believe there is an issue in that TimeMachine backups use file links, so that it doesn't need to duplicate the files for each backup version. S3 doesn't understand file links, so either copies the file, taking huge space and bandwidth, or doesn't, meaning downloading a complete version is very fiddly, depending on the --[no-]follow-symlinks parameter, ...

Your command descends the entire source tree from /src/dir1, and during this process the corresponding directories are created on the destination. You can defer the directory creation with the --prune-empty-dirs (-m) option, which means that only necessary directories are created on the destination. The --size-only removes the safety of time-based comparison ...

brew search searches for all available formulas, not installed ones. The remove command is probably failing because you don’t have MySQL installed. Also, it should be “uninstall” not remove.

Deskreen could be an option, but you might also need something called a display dummy plug in order to trick your main system to think there is a second monitor plugged in.

Some software exists. For example, I like "Spacedesk" (spacedesk.net, also available on the Microsoft Store), a program you can use to do exactly what you ask. Its advantage is that it uses HTML5, so you can stream your second screen to any HTML5 browser, so there is a huge variety of devices you can use including your MacBook. The general setup is ...

In the experiments that I've tried, this is not possible. As I said in a comment above, I didn't even know that you could assign a shortcut to a contextual menu item. I tried it, and I can get it to appear as in your pic, and I can assign a VERY unique key combo to it. But the key-combo just doesn't work. I even tried with another contextual menu item: ...

I ran into this issue after I reboot my Macbook. The solution that helped was toggling "Automatically hide and show the dock". I also use Spectacle to move windows around and now it moves them to their proper location, above the dock.

I have asked on GPG mailing list what's up and I've got interesting response: pinentry-mac has recently been upgraded to a different version which is based on pinentry upstream but with some specific macOS patches. This behavior you are seeing might be related to the „Save in keychain“ option being set to „on“ by default. Try opening macOS Keychain Access, ...

The poster liked using the powerful hammerspoon: This is a tool for powerful automation of OS X. At its core, Hammerspoon is just a bridge between the operating system and a Lua scripting engine. What gives Hammerspoon its power is a set of extensions that expose specific pieces of system functionality, to the user. With these, you can write Lua scripts to ...

Will it boot from the DVD? This is by far your best bet on an old 2008. 2008s are not capable of Internet Recovery & can be tough to persuade to boot from USB. Insert disk, restart, hold C at the chimes until you see an interface. From there you should then be able to completely reformat the internal drive & install from the DVD. Once you have that ...

Many of the above answers are either: old, and possibly have been merged into upstream already, or rely on you disabling plugins that you might need later I found a great article from 2020 by mjclemente that helped me to use plugins such as evalcache and zsh-nvm to speed up shell load time from ~1.65s to 0.6s without disabling any plugins: Speeding Up My ...

I can confirm on a Mac Mini (late 2012) adding this to the root cron: @reboot /usr/bin/setpci -s 00:1f.0 0xa4.b=0 will make it reboot on power failure.

There is nothing on Windows that can read Mac Finder tags - I've been looking for years (though I'd be happy to be proven wrong;) Interestingly, If you transfer files to a Windows machine with Finder tags already attached, you can still see them from a Mac. You can also add or remove them from a Mac whilst they're on the Windows share [whether or not they're ...

mirror-displays is a command-line utility to toggle mirroring that works flawlessly for me on Catalina. It hasn't gotten an update in about 3 years but it still seems to be somewhat maintained. Because it toggles mirroring on when you run it, then off when you run it again, I've set up a zsh alias in ~/.zshrc: alias flippy="mirror && mirror"...

Git is not a backup or syncing tool. Git can sync data that's versioned, sure, but its goal is to be a version control system, and as you've found, it doesn't work very well as a syncing tool. For example, Git doesn't sync most permissions across machines. If you don't want to sync the two with a cloud syncing service, you can do so with a tool like rsync, ...
