Intel Mac :: "Preferences Error: Could Not Load Desktop & Screen Saver Preference Pane"

Mar 19, 2012

I just install Lion 10.7 from scratch using a bootable DVD I made from the Install Mac OS X Install ESD Dmg found within the app.  After restoring my accounts and data from a time machine backup, everything seems to work fine except for 3 preference panes within the System Preferences, (Desktop & Screen Saver, Energy Saver, and Spotlight.)  I've tried reinstalling Lion over the current installation, I've tried reinstalling the latest combo update, I've trying repairing disk permissions, I've tried installing System Preferences app as well as each individual .prefpane, none of which worked.  When trying to run the preference pane I get: 

"Preferences Error.  Could not load Desktop & Screen Saver preference pane."  Replace Desktop & Screensaver part with Energy Saver and Spotlight respectively for each pane. When I run the preference pane, here is the output from the console: 

3/19/12 6:13:04.765 PM System Preferences: [NSPrefPaneBundle instantiatePrefPaneObject] (/System/Library/PreferencePanes/DesktopScreenEffectsPref.prefPane): principalClass is nil. 

All three give the same error, again replacing DesktopScreenEffectsPref.prefpane with the corresponding pane.

MacBook Pro :: No Inertial Scrolling - Cannot Find Option In Preference Pane

Jun 11, 2010

I just bought a new 13" MPB from the Apple Store today, however after using it I noticed there's no inertial scrolling. I'm using the old hard drive from my 2008 unibody macbook so would that have something to do with it? I can't find the option in the preference pane either.

MacBook Pro :: Deleted IPhone USB From Network Preference Pane - How To Get It Back

Mar 9, 2012

When I tried to connect to the Internet via my iPhone on my MacBook, it didn't want to connect.I turned off the Personal Hotspot and rebooted the iPhone. This didn't solve the problem.Then I deleted the iPhone USB network interface from my Network Preference Pane, in the hope that if I would add it again, the problems would have been solved. There's only one new problem now, I can't add the iPhone USB network interface anymore.Is there a way to get my iPhone USB network interface back in the Network Preference Pane so I can use my iPhone as a Personal Hotspot via the USB?

I can't open the Security preference pane in System Preferences. I can open desktop settings, spotlight, expos & spaces etc just fine, but the moment I click 'Security', I get the spinning beach ball, system preferences freezes and I have to force shut it down. I made a quick video using Screenflow to demonstrate the issue (the beach ball doesn't seem to appear in the video .. it did though)
I tried repairing the permissions. Didn't work.

can someone using 10.5.6 on a Mac released before the new MacBooks please do me a favour and go to /System/Library/PreferancePanes and check if EnergySaver.prefpane is version number 4.0?

p.s. i dont backup the system with Time Machine so i cant go back in Time and get it .

OS X :: Installing Preference Pane To All Users - Windows Freezes

Aug 8, 2010

I just did a fresh reinstall of 10.6 after my hard drive crashed on me last week. I'm reinstalling my preference panes, but am running into a problem. Whenever I try to install a preference pane for all users, it asking for my credentials as usual. Then the window becomes unresponsive and starts to pinwheel. When you check the dock, System Preferences is listed as "Not Responding". I've let it sit there for five or so minutes and nothing changes. If the preference panes comes with an installer (like iStat Menus) I have no issues.

Safari :: Block Cookies Always Selected In Privacy Preference Pane

Feb 20, 2012

What's up in Safari 5.1.3 Cookies. After removing all the website data, I recently chose "Block Cookies Always" After opening "Yahoo" in Safari, I looked at the "Privacy Preference Pane" again. It now reads "Block cookies Always" and says 37 websites stored cookies or other data. I looks like the choice to block cookies has little effect on Safari.Is there any way to protect yourself from unwanted cookies? By the way, in order to sign in to the Apple discussion website, cookies must be enabled.

MacBook Pro :: Finder Preferences Pane Is Blank - Trash Would Not Empty

Dec 10, 2014

I've been having troubles with my finder the past few weeks.  The trash would not empty unless I would "relaunch" the finder.  Sometimes, even after a relaunch, the trash would still not empty.  After a restart, however, I could usually empty the trash.  Until today 

So, I tried repairing permissions using disk utility.  After permissions were fixed, I still had the problem. 

I then deleted the following files:

(Actually, I didn't truly delete them, I just put them in a temp folder on my desktop.) 

The trash seems to empty just fine now, but now the preferences pane for my Finder is completely blank -- and doesn't open immediately.  It looks like this:

Here is some system info:
