MacBook :: Unable To Find Terminal Commands...

Aug 16, 2010

My macbook 2006 recently would not boot properly. By that i mean it takes about a good 5 minutes to boot to a messed up looking desktop.

Before i restore the system i need to get some files off of the machine. (The gui side freezes when i try to drag and drop).

I can boot into single use mode and use terminal but i do not know how to do the command mv /documents...etc but i don't know what drive my usb stick is or that it is mounted.

Mac Mini :: Cannot Find Correct Resolution For VGA Monitor

Mar 23, 2012

I have dual monitors connected to my 2010 Mac mini (the first model of Mac mini to support two separate monitor outputs) and I have it in extended desktop mode. (Different content on both monitors)

When I first attached my secondary monitor, the resolution was correct. However, ever since a power outage several years ago the monitor's resolution ratio is different. The monitor's resolution is now 1280 x 1024, but the ratio is off for my Widescreen monitor. It isn't the default "widescreen", but it isn't a square either. Because of this ratio mismatch, all the content on that monitor is stretched out horizontally. (From side to side)

OS X Mavericks :: What Is The Correct File Path For Library

Sep 5, 2014

My MBP crashed, and I had to restore by dragging and dropping from an external hard drive.  I fear I may have put the "library" for my user account in the incorrect place.  I am trying to create and modify MS Excel Templates and am learning to do so watching videos and the file path they illustrate has the library listed after selecting a user...on my MBP I have library and users in the same category so when I go to my "user name" there is no library in the next category.  I hypothesize that is why Excel is not automatically creating a "my templates" file for the custom templates I am creating.

I have a set of photos I"d like to import into iPhoto, but iPhoto doesn't recognize them because they don't have file extensions. Could someone give me a script that will look at each file in a specific folder, check to see if an extension is present, and if not, add the correct extension based on the file type?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Text Edit Won't Save With Correct File Extension?

Apr 17, 2012

I am trying to edit Haskell files with Text Edit. However when I save the file it automatically adds .txt or .rtf and won't let me use .txt. Even when I go into finder and change the file extension it immediately changes it back to .rtf or .txt. It works when I save perl files. How do I get Text Edit to save Haskell files? I am using Lion.

Applications :: Text Edit - Unable To Open File Not In Correct Format

Apr 8, 2009

I have a document that I've been working on in Text Edit. When I went to open it today it would not open and I got the message "the file could not be opened because it is not in the right format". I don't remember saving it any differently, last time. The only thing I did was change the font to a larger size, a few minutes before I last saved it. Could it be that it then became such a large document that text edit can't open it or is there something else I might have accidently done.

OS X :: File Copying In Terminal

Mar 18, 2010

I think its the move to Unix-framework that has changed my opinion of the mac OS) and have just bought a MyBookWorld network drive to dump all my media on which is currently on my macbook unibody. Ok, so I know its a pretty crappy product... copying is agonizingly sloooow and is always falling over. I have been trying to enter terminal and use the cp command to copy, hoping I can set it off before sodding off on a long weekend and returning to find the job done. However, I have not managed it yet.

I cannot get the syntax right when trying to copy to the shared MyBookWorld drive. I have no idea about how to locate directories. In windows I could say, for example, C:/users/robsa/my docs/media/tv/the simpsons or whatever, but I have no idea how to do it in OSX. Also, ditto accessing the MyBookWorld directories which I see in 'SHARED' in finder. Again, in windows it would be something like //MyBookWorld/Media/TV/... and so on. I have tried all sorts of different things but nothing works.............

OS X :: Removing Text From File Names Using Terminal - Possible?

Nov 21, 2008

I need a way to quickly remove text from a load of file names. I have ripped my DVD TV show series to my Apple TV and transfered them, but I want to make all the file names simpler that what they are currently. Changing them all through FTP would take ages - so I am hoping there is some kind of recursive command I can use to eliminate a set bit of text from a group of folders.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: When Try To Install A DMG File, It Opens Terminal And Does Nothing

Jun 10, 2012

I recently downloaded a .dmg file to install a program on my mac. I am running the latest version of Lion. The dmg file mounted, and when I clicked on it, it opened the finder box with two icons, one to click to install and one for uninstalling. The Install one also was missing the logo that showed on my other computer. I clicked on the install logo and the Terminal window opened, and nothing else happened.

OS X :: Itunes And Terminal Gurus - Search File Format?

Aug 18, 2009

Through some scripting mishap, I accidentally ended up with two copies of everything in my iTunes library. One was in lossless format, the other in AAC. I just went through and deleted all the AACs by hand. I'm worried that I might have accidentally deleted a lossless copy though, in stead of the AAC copy. Is there a way I can search through the trash (via terminal presumably) to make sure there are no lossless files in there? It'd be so easy if they didn't have the same extension.
