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.

You can use Microsoft Remote Desktop from App Store.
Set up your Ubuntu this way:
From DigitalOcean community page.
sudo apt-get update
If you don't have desktop installed:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
After that install XRDP:
sudo apt-get install xrdp
Enable XRDP to start on boot:
sudo systemctl enable xrdp
If you have a firewall make sure ...
thanks to Tetsujin I found the Mac settings that related to it
This would be in Mac Settings -> Notifications, of course in my system which is in Danish is it Systemudstillinger -> meddelser but the same stuff.
above a screenshot of my danish system with the messages turned on. The text will of course change for another language.
However this is not ...
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
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 ...
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
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
What gives Hammerspoon its power is a set of extensions that expose
specific pieces of system functionality, to the user. With these, you

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 ...
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 ...
The example AppleScript code, shown below, was tested under macOS Catalina and macOS Big Sur with Language & Region settings in System Preferences set to English (US) — Primary and worked for me without issue1.

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, ...
