OS X Mavericks :: Apps And Stuff Disappear When Upgrade From Snow Leopard

Sep 7, 2014

Will my apps and stuff and things I've downloaded disappear when I upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mavericks? I am afraid everything will go away Do I need a USB to put my stuff in and then put it back when Mavericks has been applied? Because i'm downloading Mavericks right now and my iMac is so old it doesn't support half the stuff the new ones do. It was made in early 2009. And also, if it will stay, would it go away if I entered a different apple ID when it will reboot and say "Enter APPLE ID"

OS X Mavericks :: Apps Disappear From Launch Pad

Sep 2, 2014

I know this question has been asked and answered but when I read the answer in previous threads, it makes no sense to me. It gives a terminal command that says killall;dock. How can that fix a problem that involves the launchpad.  

I had lots of apps in launchpad now I have fewer than half.I know the apps are actually in the applications folder but why does the icon not appear in Launchpad and how do I get them back.

OS X Mavericks :: After Upgrade From Snow Leopard - Python 3.3 Scripts Fail

Jul 1, 2014

After upgrade to Mavericks 10.9.3 from Snow Leopard my Python3.3 scripts, called through a shellscript, fail. They work fine when called from Python 3.3 in Terminal. The issue appears to be the path. Currently Python 3.3 is located in /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.3, whereas all the other installations are in /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/..., and include v2.3, v2.5, v2.6 & v2.7, plus a "Current" folder alias. I read somewhere that simply adding the new path was not advisable. If that is true, what's the best way to include other version.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Logged In But Locked Out Of Stuff?

Apr 19, 2012

I'm the admin on my Macbook and after I restarted it earlier am essentially locked out of everything on my HD save for the Applications folder. I keep getting the error "The folder "Documents" can't be opened because you don't have the permission to see its contents" and would like to regain access to it as I have not backed up my stuff in about a month because of a Time Machine issue. 

I don't know if it's related to this but all the prefernces have been changed to default and cannot change them in system prefrences. 

I'd just like to get my stuff back and am fine with a clean install.  I have access to 3 external drives: a 1 TB FW400 which stores my backups, a 120GB FW400 other external, and a 2TB USB one.  Could it be possible to install OS X on the 120, boot from there, copy everything on the Macbook's disk to the 2TB, and then restore from a much earlier Time Machine backup on the 1TB once OS X is sucessfully reinstalled? 

Alternativly is there a simple terminal command I can use?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Installing Microsoft Office 2011 Caused Arrows Character To Disappear

May 19, 2012

Prior to upgrading to Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac from Office 2008, one of my widgets (url...) displayed a double-arrow character (⟷) in the text. Since installing Office it has been replaced by a question mark in a box. I haven't encountered this problem elsewhere yet.Could installing Office have altered other files or fonts to cause problems?

I have my drive partitioned between Tiger and Snow Leopard. I am trying to move myself over to Snow Leopard so I don't have to keep switching.

OS X :: Leopard Upgrade To Snow Leopard ... The Same As The Full Version Of Snow Leopard?

Jun 13, 2009

... long time reader, first time poster!! So I'm doing it. I'm switching from PC to Mac. I've been waiting for a while now and the new MacBook Pro's have convinced me. I'm buying the 13 inch this week.

However I'm slightly worried about the upgrade to Snow Leopard in September.

My question is if I buy a new MacBook Pro this week and upgrade from the current version of Leopard to Snow Leopard will it be the EXACT same as the version of Snow Leopard that ships with new MacBooks after September?

Is the upgrade just the same as the full software version available post September? Does the upgrade it just detect if you have the previous software and installs as if it were the full? Or does it just "patch" things depending on what's different from previous versions?

I can wait till after Snow Leopard is released in September 09 if it is different to Leopard upgraded to Snow Leopard.

OS X :: System Apps Keep Freezing And Other Weird Stuff?

Jan 25, 2009

I've been experiencing some weird problems on my Mac Pro for the last few days. It's a Xeon quad 2.8, 6GB memory and running 10.5.6, never had any problems with it before. So the problems I'm having is that some system applications becomes unresponsive (freeze and fun beach ball spinning). In most cases I'm not able to force quit the frozen apps either. Also, in the dock it says "Application Not Responding" when I right click on them (like it should), but when I check the "Force Quit Applications" window there is no such text (there should be some red text after the application name if I'm not mistaken).

These are the apps that has frozen the last few days: System preferences, Disk Utility, System Profiler, Software Update, the main menu has also frozen at times.

When I try to shut down the Mac Pro it quits all the applications as usual, but then just stops and shows the wallpaper and nothing else (so I have to use the power button on Mac Pro itself to completely shut it down. When I want to put my Mac to sleep it takes way longer than usual as well. Today after I had been away for a while I came back to see the screen saver active, but in my Energy settings I've set it to shut down the displays before the screen saver would activate � so I have no idea why the screen saver was on...

I have locked my System Preferences (with the little lock in the lower left) but when I click on the lock it just says "Authorizing..." next to it and System Preferences freezes (no password window pops up).

I'm lost. I can't for the life of me figure out what could be wrong. I've used Repaired Permissions without any luck. (There was some error messages, but now I can't even open up Disk Utility again without it freezing directly at start up.)

All I can think about is that something I've installed would have messed something up, not sure. The last days I've installed: Grammarian Pro X (trial), iWork '09 (retail) and Handbreak. (and I've updated other software like Adium, but I doubt that's the problem)

I'm really loving this new MacBook Pro of mine and discovering all of the cool things it can do.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Do Apps Disappear From The Dock After Close The Application

Jun 5, 2012

This just recently started to happen. Safari and Mail disappear everytime I quit the applications and I have to relaunch from launchpad. I have the checked the option "keep in the Dock". 

I am running Mac OS X version 10.7.4 on an iMac7,1 and have been for a while.  

I can't seem to find any current information in the Apple Discussion Forums. Probable something really simple for a really annoying occurance.

Applications :: Upgrade To Snow Leopard Or Install Snow Leopard?

Oct 4, 2010

I'm currently using a MBP 13 inch and am running Leopard on it.

I just bought a copy of snow leopard today but i don't know if I should do a direct upgrade from leopard to snow leopard, or wipe my MBP and do a fresh install so i have snow leopard on a clean slate.

Have any of you tried the second option before? Or do any of you have advice on which path I should take?

OS X :: Upgrade To Snow Leopard/any Need To Upgrade Your RAM?

Aug 30, 2009

I am curious about the system requirement of Snow Leopard. Since the performance and speed are better on SL, I think Snow Leopard will consume a little bit more resource of our macs., although I know Snow Leopard is just only the refinement of the software.

So, my question is that WILL YOU UPGRADE YOUR RAM OF YOUR MAC?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Upgrade To Snow Leopard Free For MobileMe Users?

I've recently acquired an iMac and wanted to upgrade to Lion, however I believe I need to upgrade from Leopard to Snow Leopard first - which could prove to end up costing a fortune! I've read recently that Apple are offering the upgrade to Snow Leopard free of charge for MobileMe users, however when I've followed a link to fill in a request form, this just takes me to the Find My Phone feature on iCloud.

OS X :: Mac Mini Leopard To Snow Leopard Unique Upgrade?

Jun 10, 2010

My brother and parents have a Mac Mini each.

They have not the latest generation but the prior Intel generation -- that shipped with Leopard.

Being the family IT guy, last time I was in town I purchased the Snow Leopard retail DVD family pack upgrade and upgraded my parents machines to Snow Leopard. I couldn't upgrade my brother's mini because he had it away at school.

Now he is back at my parents house (as am I) and I was all set to upgrade his machine to Snow Leopard but I can't find the retail install disk I purchased.

However, I do have the Snow Leopard Mac Mini OSX install DVD that shipped with my recently purchased (latest generation) Mac Mini.

Question -- does anyone know if I could use this latest generation Snow Leopard Mac Mini system install DVD (the one that shipped with my mac Mini) to upgrade my brother's previous generation mac mini running Leopard to snow leopard.

Not looking to do a clean install but rather the upgrade.

Anyhow ever tried this? I obviously don't want to upgrade his previous generation machine with drivers, etc. for my latest generation --- rather JUST get his leopard upgraded to snow leopard.

Software :: Upgrade From Leopard To Snow Leopard Not Working?

Feb 17, 2010

I have mac mini (early 2009) running leopard and want to upgrade to snow leopard. I've bought a disk from a local store and when I try to install I get as far as 45 minutes to go when the installer reboots the computer and says it will continue to install after reboot. So it reboots kicks the disk out and reboots back into Leopard. The Apple site says it is probably a bad disk, so I got another one, still does the same. Apple also says it might be the dvd drive, I have no other issues with the drive, it installs the original leopard disks without problem, it reads video dvd's without problem, it verifies the snow disk as perfect.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Crash When Quitting Apps?

Mar 4, 2010

I'm on latest update of Snow Leopard and ever since I started working with mBOX (sound interface) and ProTools, my osx crashes frequently when quitting apps. My guess it's something to do with the sound card (the internal one). When I quit an app , the screen becomes green and it says in a couple of different languages that I have to turn off the computer by holding down the power button.

Then when I do that and then restart my computer, when booted it says 'You shut down the computer because of a problem'. In the report I always find that the problem layed with the app I quit.

It's not a particular app, I've had it with Quicktime, VLC, iTunes, LittleSnitch, SoundSource, Chrome, etc...

PS: I'm running on MacbookPro, 15" 2.4 GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, Mac OSX 10.6.2

OS X :: Apps Running Faster In Snow Leopard?

Aug 31, 2009

Last night I installed the new Snow Leopard hoping to see an improvement in some of the programs I use (Photoshop, LR, Flash, AE etc�) but I don�t think any of these programs other than Safari, Finder and all those built-in applications in OSX benefited from this new 64-bit code, at least I haven�t seen any improvements in fact I went and checked the Activity Monitor and I don�t see the 64-bit in any of these programs.

Was this supposed to benefit all programs speed wise or the program itself should be 64-bit compatible?
