OS X :: How To Run A Terminal Command When Logging In

Jul 23, 2010

What is the best way to run a terminal command when logging in? And by �best� I mean �fastest.� I�ve been encapsulating my commands in an Applescript, but it�s terribly slow to load, and I�m hoping there�s some UNIX back-end I can use to speed things up.

Specifically, I want to run a shell script that I wrote. It decrypts some folders inside my Home directory so I can use them (this part works seamlessly, I just need it to auto-run itself).

OS X :: Running Terminal Commands Without Logging In?

Jan 22, 2009

I know on windows allows you to run batch files without actually logging into the OS. This allows you to put an base image onto a PC and use batch files to change settings, place on active directory, and other things without having to log in.

How do I do this with a mac? I want to be able to run 2 command line commands, one after the other once the other is finished, and then add it to Active directory. Would I do this in perl? and how do I get it to run without logging in so I can start it and then move on to other stuff?

OS X :: Command To Clear Terminal?

Oct 5, 2010

Is there a command to clear the terminal screen that works like 'cls' on Windows? I know about 'clear', but clear just moves the prompt on the top of the screen, leaving the previous output visible if I scroll up.

A friend suggested 'clear_console' (I think he's on debian) but I can't find it on OS X or MacPorts.

OS X :: How Can I Easily Run A Terminal Command

Nov 19, 2008

I want to run some terminal commands fairly often... yet I don't want to have to type them. I just switched from windows, so I need some help as to how to do this.

In windows I would've just used a batch file to run command prompt commands. I need something that will let me just run it and it will automatically run the commands.

OS X :: Terminal Says Command Not Found?

Jul 2, 2009

Last login: Tue Jun 30 15:38:02 on console

-bash: 2-18-09: command not found


I can use the Control>C command to quit that and return to normal. But it's a waste of time and I can't seem to figure it out. A Genius Bar Genius said to Archive and Install, but I don't think it's necessary. I just want to know how I can find whatever it is that's screwing it up.

OS X :: Cannot Run Sudo Command In Terminal

Nov 29, 2009

I can't seem to run a sudo command in the OS X terminal. Every time I run a sudo command, I get no response, as if the command is not run at all. My sudo appears to be broken somehow. I've got a problem with mounting an NTFS drive that is dirty. I have a command I am trying to run using the "sudo" command, but it is not working.

Code: sudo /usr/local/bin/ntfs-3g /dev/disk0s3 /Volumes/WIN XP -o force

After the sudo, I am prompted for my password, but after that the only response I get is another prompt, as if the command was totally ignored. I have tried many different commands after the sudo, and cannot get a response from anything. I even tried "sudo tcsh", which should open up a new shell, but nothing. "sudo ls" also shows nothing, just another prompt.

OS X :: Command For Opening Files In Terminal?

Jun 25, 2006

You'd think this was all pretty basic. It probably is.

I'm trying to open/edit '/usr/local/php5/lib/php.ini' with TextWrangler through Terminal. The TextWrangler part isn't an absolute requirement. The directory exists and I'm assuming the file does as well. (No 404-esq errors during my fumblings and it was a standard installation of PHP5)

Also, is there any way to browse through the above directory using the Finder's GUI? That would be nice.

MacBook Pro :: Can I Screw Up My Mbp With This Terminal Command

May 28, 2010

Just bought a new MacBook Pro yesterday and I'm having trouble getting Time Machine to work with my NAS (WD My Book World Edition which supposedly supports Time Machine after their last firmware update). Time Machine sees it and starts writing to it but then stops recognizing the external NAS drive even though it's still connected to the network and I can access it and its files through the Finder.

So I did some Googling and came across this article and this command line...

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Undo A Terminal Command?

May 12, 2012

I was frustrated with Google Chrome quiting whenever I accidently pressed command q, so I tried out some terminal commands I found online. One was defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSUserKeyEquivalents '{"Quit Google Chrome" = "@Q"; "Preferences..." = "@;";}' I don't know what the other was. They stopped chrome from quiting with command q, but now I can't quit chrome AT ALL.  Is there a way to undo everything I've ever done in terminal?  I should not be touching it...

Applications :: Terminal Command To Get External IP Address

Mar 13, 2004

Is there a terminal command that will display your external IP address? ifconfig and netstat only seem to report my local/network address, so I've been using curl and awk to parse [URL]. But I'd prefer a way that doesn't rely on an http call. Not to mention that my method will fail if/when dyndns changes the format of that page.

OS X :: Terminal Command For Changing Default Sounds

Aug 6, 2010

I'm looking to change some of the OS X default sounds (like the very annoying "boing!" drag-and-drop sound). I'm not talking about the alert sound that can be changed easily via the "Sound" function in System Preferences. I'm looking for the Terminal commands that would enable me to substitute an existing Mac OS X sound for the ones I don't like. (I'm not looking to create or find online other sounds; I'm happy to just use the ones that come with Mac OS X.) Some weeks ago I found a web page that described the necessary terminal commands and also where to find the .aiff files, but I've spent the last week trying to find that page again with no luck.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can Stop TM's Snapshots Without A Terminal Command

May 5, 2012

There is a possibility that there is something amiss with my external hard drive.  I have ejected the hard drive and read in a thread that there is a way to disable TM's continuous "local Snapshots" Backup with a command typed in Terminal.  The reasoning is that TM uses a lot of CPU's? and things can become a bit sluggish. If I turn TM to "OFF", doesn't this stop the hourly snapshots on the INTERNAL hard drive?
