Applications :: Unable To Remove Ffmpeg Dependencies / Uninstalling Ffmpeg From Fink?

Jul 16, 2010

I used fink to install ffmpeg so I could convert some flvs I have to MP3s. Wasted at least 2+ hours to compile all the dependencies only to run into some problem where ffmpeg to throw out an error about flv being an unsupported video codec. I know it should have worked as I have done this on *nix systems before. I after fighting with it for an hour or so I broke down and am now using Audacity to rip the audio out (works too).

So I go to uninstall ffmpeg from fink, expecting all the dependencies to go along with it. Except only ffmpeg is removed. dkpg and/or fink will automatically remove/uninstall the dependencies. ATM I am too frustrated to want to waste more time on this, so I come here asking for help. Is there something I am doing wrong for fink and dpkg not to auto-remove the dependencies?

I was able to output all the dependencies to a text file (yay redirect output). IF worse comes to worse, can anyone help me throw together a bash or perl script to go through the text file and "fink purge <dependency>" for me?

Again I normally wouldn't be asking for help without working on the problem myself, but after wasting all that time for the dependencies and ffmpeg to compile, I'm just too angry to think straight.

OS X :: Apple Script For Converting Audio Files Using FFMPEG

Sep 26, 2010

I have installed ffmpeg using MacPorts and am trying to work out a script that will convert audio files in a specified folder to mp3 files, outputting the converted files as mp3 files in another folder. So far the script looks like this:

code:set convertPath to "Macintosh HD:opt:local:bin:ffmpeg"
set convertCommand to quoted form of POSIX path of convertPath & " -i {infile} -f mp3 -ar 44100 -ab 128 -acodec mp3 - "
tell application "Finder"
set inPath to "Macintosh HD:Users:nick:Desktop:new:"
set outPath to "Macintosh HD:Users:nick:Desktop:new2:"
set myFiles to (files of entire contents of inPath whose name ends with ".m4a") as alias list
repeat with i from 1 to count of myFiles
do shell script convertCommand
end repeat
end tell

With this script I am getting the error : "Can't make every file of "class ects" of "Macintosh HD: Users:nick:Desktop:new:" whose name ends with ".m4a" into type alias list." I am not sure how to define the do shell script command so that it outputs an MP3 file in the output directory.

OS X :: Applications Keep Uninstalling Automatically On MBP

Jun 16, 2009

Several applications on my mac keep uninstalling themselves, even whilst In use. For example: I was using firefox, then navigation bar seemed to lock up, so I quit Firefox, then it removed itself from the dock bar - I looked in my applications folder and it was no longer there? Had to download and reinstall to get it working again. Was using photoshop CS4, click 'save for web' and a popup told me it was unable to export as file didn't exist? So I saved my file i was working on, quit photoshop, looked in my applications folder and the entire CS4 package was missing?

To restore this, I opened Time Machine, and found that it had been missing for 3 hours, so restored the Adobe suite (7gb) and it now works again. This has happened to about 8 applications now, cyberduck, carbon copy cloner, adium, appzapper, automater, firefox, adobe? I've ran a disk check on my hard drive and all seems fine, no errors found. I'm also experiencing complete freezes every so often where I'm forced to hold the power button down to turn my mac off and then reboot it - all since this error started happening. I have a Macbook Pro, 17" 2.4ghz, 4gm ram running OS X 10.5.7

Software :: Finding And Uninstalling Applications On MBP

Dec 24, 2009

Can someone tell how to definitively find and remove software that has been installed on my MBP? I've recently tried connecting to my father-in-law's network, but to no avail. The guy from BT did a remote desktop to my MBP via a Citrix app called BT-GoToAssist, which seemed to install a couple of things just prior to running. Can anyone let me know how to find these and get rid of them? I don't like having things on my laptop that I don't use.

Applications :: Uninstalling Parallels And Related Stuff?

Jul 30, 2010

So I've installed a few applications here and there that haven't really worked like I wanted them to. I recently installed Parallels and I hated it. I deleted everything I could find but when I search "Parallels" in my finder a bunch of other stuff appears. Is that all related to Parallels, is it okay to delete them all, or not? The only reason it bothers me is because my computer used to shut down literally 5 times faster than it has been since I install Parallels. I think maybe that was the problem and if I delete everything I can find related to Parallels it will shutdown faster.

How in the world do I uninstall programs. I downloaded a program called DIVX and it was working for what I downloaded it for but it is nowhere to be found on my harddrive to uninstall it and it is not in my applications list.

I use firefox but if I ever wanted to uninstall it there is no uninstall option, same goes for programs like AIM or Yahoo Messenger.

Software :: How Is The Working Of Leopard And Fink?

Jan 22, 2008

Well, title says it. Can anyone explain how well at this point plays Fink with Leopard? Is Apple's X11 compatible with Fink? There were apparently some problems, but it is not clear to me if this concerns the Apple implementation of X11 and at which point are we now.

I noticed also that there is another similar project, Macports. Anyone with experience with this?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Unable To Remove Login Items

May 26, 2012

Unable to remove login items (Revert after reboot) iOX10.5 iMac

I am having issues and permanent encounter in having my removed login items reappearing after reboot. I have very MANY of the same programs in 'open at Login accounts' eg: Messenger,Safari,Skype,Evernote,Dropbox,antivirus, but they are listed dozens of times. in this 'open at login' area.

Here's the steps I have taken:

1) Open Applications, Account Preferences, cluck my administrator acc, select program to delete, click on - and wait.

2) Remove some login items (with or without unlocking the lock, doesn't seem make a difference, tried both)

3) Login items are now fewer

4) Reboot

5) voila, the removed login items are still loaded and displayed in login item tab.

OS X :: Unable To Remove IFlicks / Some Traces Remain In ITunes

Jan 26, 2010

System information:
MacBook Pro 2.226
iTunes 10.0.1 (22)

I recently downloaded iFlicks to try a different form of meta tagging.However I did not care for it too much.I only ran it from the mounted disk image (dmg) instead of actually installing it. I didnt actually encode/tag or use it render any of my files just messed around in the GUI.

So now whenever I open iTunes on this specific account regardless of what library I open (my internal/local machd>username>music>itunes) or my external libraries the script icon for that plug-in is still there and I have no idea how to get it off my system, not jsut remove the icon but get the **** application completely off my system.

i've ran disk permissions repair under the master/admin account as my current user account is standard.
