OS X Mavericks :: Text File In Terminal Merges Lines

Jun 23, 2014

I'm trying to use wget -i <filename> in Terminal, but every time I run it, the txt file (saved as UTF-8) has all the lines run together with %0D. I don't even know where to start to troubleshoot. Thoughts?

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 :: Open Full Text Files In Terminal?

Dec 11, 2010

How do you open/edit text files in the terminal such that I don't need to navigate through pages of the text file, I just want to see the whole file there so I can scroll up and down it (similar to the output with "cat").

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 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.

OS X Mavericks :: Recurrent System Freeze And Jagged Lines Through Screen

Jul 1, 2014

I am having very frequent system freezes (multiple per day) then when restart the restart is very slow. Activity Monitor shows TechToolsupportDaemon taking up 99-120% of CPU for extended periods.  I have a MacBook Pro 15-iInch, Early 2011, with 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7; 8 GB 1333MHz DDR3; Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB; running OS X 10.9.3 (13D65).   

I am also having episodes for sudden abnormal graphics with jagged lines, Screen split vertically with multiple horizontal lines. Screen becomes totally unreadable. Then sudden total screen freeze. 

I made rescue system drives on flash drive when I first shifted to Maverick, so I could use Disk Utility to Verify and/or repair the main disk.  When I upgraded to the next edition of Maverick, my flash drives no longer worked. I tried to upgrade the flash drives to the new system, but there was not enough room. I tried erasing the drives but now I have a flash drive with only a small amount of space, the rest is hidden and locked. 

What do I need to do to correct the problem of frequent freezes, and then How can I free space on my flash drives?

OS X Mavericks :: Terminal Utility Window Go To Sleep

Sep 2, 2014

One issue though is that occasionally, a terminal utility window will go to sleep (or become Zombified) and won't wake up again.

This happens when I am running a long numerical calculation from one of the tabs in the terminal window. 

Normally, the numerical calculation does not print much, but will occasionally print out information about the progress of the program and sometimes error messages.  In past MAC-OSX, I had just started the numerical calculation in one tab and went on working (vim editing e.g.) in another tab in the same window, occasionally going back to check for error messages and progress. 

In Mavericks OSX though at some point, the long run-time of the numerical calculation causes the whole terminal window to sleep including the tab in which I am doing the editing. 

It is an interesting sleep.  The numeric calculation keeps running, so I just set the window aside to let the program finish. 

Other terminal utility windows are fine but all tabs on the same window are in the sleep mode.

The sleeping windows can actually be updated to their most recent, directly visible content by hitting the yellow dot at the top left,

sending the window down to the Dock, and then reopening from the Dock.

Even after reopening the terminal window from dock, the whole window (every tab) remains asleep. Scrolling does not work, continued updating of the screen output by the numerical calculation does not work, but you can see the most recent content by using the Dock update trick. 

I can work around this and change the numerical calculation to send the output and error messages to a file instead of the screen and then run the programs in background.  (Don't know if background programs will still zombify the terminal window.)

Also, I can do the editing from a separate terminal window, but at first the unexpected irreversible sleep caught me off-guard.   

I realise that such automatic sleeping might be part of the reason for the large increase in speed, which is actually more important to me than maintaining the viability of each terminal window. 

I am wondering though if there is some way to reanimate the sleeping terminal windows to inspect error messages more easily (i.e. scroll up to old ones).

OS X Mavericks :: Error Message In Terminal Upon Start Up?

Jun 4, 2014

I was installing a few things on my new MacBook Pro (XCode, XQuartz, X11, and Homebrew) when I noticed some funky error message that I get whenever I open Terminal. 

It says: -bash: export: `/usr/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/opt/X11/bin': not a valid identifier. 

I am still getting used to my Mac after a decade of Windows, and I have no clue what this error means or how to fix it.

OS X Mavericks :: (10.9.4) Show And Remove DS Files Without Terminal

Sep 10, 2014

I am running 10.9.4

It can be done through terminal, its just a bit all or nothing. I would like to show the .DS files on a USB stick for example, remove them and switch back to hide without round tripping to terminal every time.

Can be done easily on a PC but not the Mac i know. Did I dream it or could one show/hide hidden files on previous OS?  I know extra menu items appear with the alt but not 'show hidden'

Having the .DS files is a real pain when loading movie files onto a media player or trying to play through a SMART TV. As most (all) smart tvs only accept FAT/ ExFAT formatting the .DS files show in the menu. On media players it's worse as it  prevents one playing multiple movies in order and to repeat till you hit stop. As soon as the player hits a .DS it will stop and throw up an error.

OS X :: Always Text File Open With A Different Name?

Jun 1, 2009

why everythime I click on a .txt or other file, do I have to check the little box everytime to open every single .txt file with a different name? Sure if I open the same file again it will open with text edit but this gets old.

I love how Windows will open all .txt files with word pad or note pad but OS X is not like this. There has to be a better way.

OS X :: Editing (Add Text) To PDF File?

Jul 29, 2009

I have a ton of job applications to fill out and hopefully turn them all in tomorrow. I have so many job apps, but rather than filling them all out by hand I'd much rather type the info into the PDF file directly and then print them out, ready to go. What's the best way to do this? I started out downloading Adobe Reader, later realizing there is a difference between Reader and Adobe Acrobat. Then after searching for a while I noticed the trial version of Acrobat I downloaded from Adobe's site is for Windows only; discovering Acrobat for Mac only went up to version 8.

There are no free trial downloads of version 8 for mac out there. I'd really hate to have to print out over 70 sheets of paper and fill them out one by one, box by box. Will "Preview" allow me to edit and add text on each job application? I'll respond quickly, as i'm looking for a solid solution on the matter. The only thing I've found, though don't really like it is uploading the PDF file online to a specific website and editing it there, text box by text box...seems, a bit of a hassle.

OS X :: Using Text Edit File As To-do List?

May 14, 2009

I use a text edit file as a to-do list; however, it doesn't play nice. When I click on its icon, it pops up somewhere other than where I want it. I've tried "Preferences" and TextEdit help on and off line. I can't find any info on it. I'm probably not using the exact words that 'help' would recognize. I've tried saying "Simon Says" too, but that doesn't work either.
