OS X :: How To Install 10.5 Expose In Snow Leopard

Oct 15, 2009

I've been trying to install the 10.5 version of Expose into 10.6 but I don't know enough about OSX to know how to make it work. I've tried installing the package from the 10.5 instal disks using Pacifist but I still the the 10.6 Expose behavior.

If people can get the 10.5, Base 2 Finder working in Snow Leopard it should be possible to get Expose working also.

OS X :: Expose Glitching In Snow Leopard?

May 13, 2010

This mainly seems to be a display bug and has been happening since the upgrade to Snow Leopard on my 2008 white macbook.

It happens about 70% of the time I switch windows with expose.

Is anyone experiencing similar problems? I'm not having any of the other display issues such as in the other threads with the weird shadows or boxes or anything.

User here with a MacBook Air, Snow Leopard, Rev B SSD:

Questions -

OS X :: Swiping In Expose Is Completely Ruined In Snow Leopard?

Sep 15, 2009

Prior to Snow Leopard, you could use swipe up to see the desktop and then swipe down to come back to your previous window. Now you must swipe up again to go back to your original window. The up/down movement is ruined in Snow Leopard...

OS X :: Expose - Have To Click Twice For Certain Programs

Mar 10, 2010

I've got a bit of an annoying problem on my macbook running OSx 10.5.7

Whenever I go to expose and click on the window I want to run, for a particular piece of software, it will 90% of the time not come to the front of my screen. Instead I get the window I was on before, I have to try again (quickly afterwards) to get the window I want up.

The only software it happens to is called Aptana Studio. It's quite irritating as I use this for work all the time, and have to flick between this and other programs regularly.

OS X :I Can't Click On Any Of The Menu Options And Expose Stops Working?

Jul 6, 2009

I'm on an older blackbook (2 years old? ca. summer 2007) running Leopard and I'm getting some weird behavior with Finder. When I right click on anything in the dock, i.e., to close a program, the dock locks up, I can't click on any of the menu options, Expose stops working and the alt+tab interface stops working, as if everything is frozen... This caused me to think that Finder was crashing, but then I discovered that when I went up to the menubar at the top, everything "unfroze." The dock went back to normal and was usable, expose works fine and the alt-tab interface works fine too.

OS X :: Touch To Click Very Gamy With Snow Leopard?

Sep 1, 2009

I have a Macbook Pro 13". I love the touchpad and only use the touch to click, never pushing physically on the touchpad to click. After upgrading to Snow Leopard today, the touch to click is very unreliable. Sometimes I'll need to click several times to choose an app or even close or chose an internet site link. Restarted a few times cured the problem. Not for me thus far. Especially in choosing windows in powerpoint or even opening the HD sometimes. Do I just reinstall and erase and return to Leopard? Will that put me back where I was when the touchpad worked impeccably?

OS X :: Snow Leopard - Double Click To Minimize Gone?

Sep 18, 2009

Alright, so work bought me a new Macbook Pro with Snow Leopard. I had been used to using Leopard on my home machine and the iMac I was using before for work. In Leopard and older OS X's - you could double click the name of the window and it would minimize. Now with Snow Leopard...it doesn't work. Am I going crazy or is it hidden somewhere?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Services Missing From Right Click Menu?

May 24, 2012

I was trying to install some services that I created using applescripts and ThisService. The problem I'm having is that Services is not available in the menu when I right click on a folder or file. Looking under Keyboard in the system preferences, I can see all of the different services that are availible. I have the ones I'd like to use checked but no services appear in the menu when I right click. I've tried resetting defaults in the preferences, logging in and out, restarting and nothing helps. I found another post that said open terminal and run this /System/Library/CoreServices/pbs. When I enter that in the terminal, I get this message "No languages specified - assuming English" and nothing changes. I'm running 10.6.8 and I know that Services used to be avalible in the menu.

OS X :: Mouse Keeps Double Clicking In Snow Leopard After A Single Click

Sep 23, 2009

I have this really annoying issue where my mouse will randomly double click in OS X when i didn't actually double click my mouse. I had this problem before in Leopard (with different mouse) but now it seems the problem has returned with snow leopard. has anyone else had this problem? I checked the mouse properties and there's nothing strange there. I also don't have custom drivers installed. Just default snow leopard drivers.

OS X :: How To Enable Scroll Button Click Scrolling In Safari 4 On Snow Leopard

Feb 21, 2010

I was wondering if there was a way to enable scroll button click scrolling in Safari 4 on Snow Leopard?

I'm sure there's a proper term for it, but what I mean is when you press down on the scroll wheel and a circle appears on screen with two arrows, when you move your mouse up or down it allows you to scroll through long documents quicker. I think Firefox and Internet Explorer have it.

I read that USB Overdrive might be of use, but it wont recognise my mouse (Logitech MX 620).

OS X :: Triple-click Versus Double-click/how To Make This Change To Leopard/Safari?

Mar 13, 2009

My workflow entails repetitive tasks that would be so much easier if I could set Leopard's (Safari's) default double-click functionality to select ALL text within the Google search box instead of having to use a triple-click. Does anyone know how to make this change to Leopard/Safari?

OS X :: Revert To Leopard Expose?

Sep 2, 2009

There was another post that brushed on this so I wanted to start one just for this topic. It seems alot of people on here (me included) think that Snow Leopard has effectively ruined the functionality of expose with the new way it arranges windows. I barely use it now since it is much harder to find what I am looking for. For instance, my "downloads" menu from safari is now larger than some of the safari windows themselves! The question: Is there anyway, hacks or otherwise, to revert to the old style of expose?

OS X Lion :: 10.7 Freezes Whenever Screen Saver Activates

Jul 4, 2012

Installed Lion. Upgraded all 30,000 of my photos as per screen prompts. Now unable to use my Mac ANY time screen saver activates. It freezes, hangs, crashes. NEVER had any of these problems with 10.6 and, because I've "upgraded" my entire iPhoto Library (as per screen prompts) I am STUCK with this new OS!!

How can I "de-upgrade" my iPhoto library so I can revert to a system that functions?

MacBook Pro :: Skype Activates 330m - Battery Time Increases

May 11, 2010

I just got my first MacBook and just draining the battery for the first time (seems to be something like 5-6 hours while surfing and playing music via the speakers, so far I'm quite happy). But I've noticed that the 330m is running all the time due to Skype. I checked with gfxCardStatus and when I close Skype the battery time increases nearly an hour.

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.

Mar 31, 2012

I have a Snow Leopard Install Disk for the 13-inch Macbook Pro model.I also have a 21-inch iMac. I have OS X Lion installed on both.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: 10.5.8 Will Not Let To Click And Drag Anything?

Mar 24, 2012

I have not tried all of the things people have said to do on the internet because all of them have said it didn't work. I bought and used the mackeeper but this didn't solve my problem either.

Nothing on my computer will let me click and drag anything. It doesn't work in any application, or the desktop (in Expose I am able to move around those applications, but nothing else). I have had this problem for quite some time now.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Photoshop CS And Acrobat 6.0 Stopped Working In Snow Leopard?

Mar 25, 2012

"Photoshop CS" and "Acrobat 6.0 Standard" suddenly stopped working in my iMac, apparently after I upgraded it to MacOS 10.6.8 (the latest version of Snow Leopard).  Both programs had worked normally until that OS upgrade.  I deleted Photoshop CS and tried to re-install it from the original CD, but the installation never proceeds because I get an error message entitled:  "Install Adobe Photoshop CS quit unexpectedly".  This is the full error message: 

Process:         LaunchCFMApp [1516]

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Software Update After Snow Leopard Clean Install

Jul 3, 2012

Today I performed a clean install of Snow Leopard on my late 2009 Mac Mini. After completing the installation, I began running software update to bring everything up-to-date.While software update did find and install a number of updates (10.6.8v1.1 Combo update, Security Update 2012-002, Apple Software Installer Update, iLife Support 9.0.4, Remote Desktop Client Update 3.5.3, Airport Utility, Java, Safari) it did not find an update for iTunes (which starts at version 9.x, I believe, in a SL clean install).I assumed that this was some sort of random glitch and manually downloaded and installed iTunes 10.6.3.After that, I re-installed iLife '11 (from a retail DVD, not the App Store).When I ran Software Update again, it found updates for Garage Band, iDVD, and iWeb, but it did not show the updates for iPhoto and iMovie.I found this to be unnerving, as I performed a clean install when I first obtained this Mini a few months ago and didn't experience any of these problems - all of my Apple software updated automatically through Software Update without a hitch.

I began researching this problem online and found that other people have been experiencing this same problem (or some variation of it), and it seems like it began appearing around the time Apple updated some of its security certificates in March.In particular, I've found several references to the missing iPhoto update.This one is especially noticeable because an iPhoto library created in iPhoto 9.2.3 will not open in iPhoto 9.0, and this generates an error upon opening the program (i.e., a user backs up their iPhoto library created in 9.2.3, performs a SL clean install, reinstalls iLife, goes through the Software Update process until it shows that no more updates are available, and are shocked to find that they are unable to open their backed up iPhoto library because they have an out of date version of iPhoto).The most common (and admittedly logical) solution proposed in the threads I've read is to download any necessary updates directly from the Apple website. However, I am curious as to why this previously functional feature now appears to be broken.Has anyone else been struggling with this?  Does it indeed have something to do with the new security certificates? Is Apple aware of the problem?
