MacBook :: Not Showing Icons For Installed Apps - Fixing It?

Oct 16, 2010

This is likely a Snow Leopard issue, but since it's happening on my Macbook....

Icons are (mostly) not displaying. In Finder my /Applications folder is ok, but anything new I install into it will have a name but no icon. In /Applications/Utilities no icons are showing My dock is ok, so far at least. On my Desktop (my default folder for downloads) anything downloaded will have a name but no icon. When installing a new program no icon for the app displays, just the name.

Now it does this only when I download the update to my iTunes and then sync using USB.†When I do a wired sync. I can't figure out how to make it do it again automatically.

OS X :: Icons Of New Downloaded Items Not Showing?

Dec 7, 2009

well this just started fairly and I really have no idea why, basically when I download a new app like powder game or desmemu for example, the icons will not show, it shows that sort of "paper with the pencil and ruler ect that makes a 'A' mark at the bottom right" icon :/

Is there a way to fix this? I rebuilt the cache and stuff and it didn't fix it.

App Store :: ILife Not Showing As Installed In Mac?

Jun 3, 2012

I've been told that if you buy a new Mac it will show iLife '11 as installed in the Mac App Store so that you can then install the iLife '11 apps on your other macs without having to re-purchase iLife '11 on each computer.  I have a 2010 MacBook Pro and a 2011 MacBook Pro and I've signed into the Mac App Store using the same account on each computer but the iLife '11 app still shows as being purchaseable from both computers.  Any advice on how to get this to show as installed so that I can install it on my 2010 MBP without re-purchasing it?

IMac :: Installed Open Office - Start Screen Icons Stacked

Sep 24, 2009

I got the Agua version and I'm on the newest version of Snow Leopard. I would post a screen shot if I knew how to. But when I open OpenOffice in Applications you get the start screen where you usually get to choose between the different programs. First of all on the text "Welcome to openoffice", the bottom half of "Welcome to" is missing. And then all the icons below are kind of stacked onto each other so you can only access some of them and its impossible to see what the icons does, cause the text for them also run into each other.

OS X :: Image Files Showing Icons In Coverflow Instead Of Preview?

Jul 14, 2009

I don't know when this started happening, but all of a sudden in coverflow all the images display as their file type icon, not the preview of the image, which defeats the purpose of coverflow. Anyone know how this happened and how to switch it back?

Incidentally, all the icons show for Xee, the image browsing app, which I'm using only because Preview is being a jerk and constantly displaying itself in my secondary monitor, which I keep off most of the time (it's a wacom cintiq, and it's distracting to have turned on when not in use). If I can somehow fix this all by fixing preview and getting rid of Xee, I certainly would.

Power Mac :: Desktop Icons Ghosted And Showing Transparent

May 8, 2012

Yesterday I accidentally opened Terminal and didn't realize it until after I typed into it and hit a few returns. I thought nothing of it until today. When I started up all of the desktop icons were ghosted or transparent. The Dock apps look fine, and everything seems to work OK. There are odd .DS_Store files everywhere and other files that start with a dot that I've heard are supposed to be invisible.

I've looked around and found out that it's a Finder problem that can be corrected by typing something into Terminal. That's how I realized I must have messed it up yesterday when I accidentally typed into the Terminal.†What code I need to enter into Terminal to restore it to the default settings.†I have a Dual 2.7 GHz PowerPC G5 with OS 10.4.11, and other than this problem it works great.
