OS X Technologies :: It Loads All File In The Folder When Tried Ro Move One

May 29, 2012

I have a folder action set up to open movie files in a conversion app but every time I add a new file it loads all the files in the folder.  How can i exclude a file that has already been opened by the folder action.  I can't move the file due to queing up moves for conversion if the file is moved after it is opened the the program doesn't know where to look for it. Ive tried Filter finder items by last opened and set it as today but that did not work. It opened nothing.  May I could set it up to know if the file has been there longer then 5 min that the folder action should not open it.

OS X Technologies :: Folder Action Does Not Run On SECOND File Only

Mar 7, 2012

Does any one know of a bug or a log for folder scripts that do not run? I am trying to get a basic folder script (to replace %20 in the file name) of the Downloads folder.

When downloading multiple files (two or more) it runs only on the first file, successfully without error, and then never runs on the second file. If I move both of the files out of the Downloads folder and move it back it, the one file that does not get the folder action now does and everything is peachy.So it is not that the folder action is not scripted properly. It is just that the folder does not catch the second file download - guess maybe too fast? Has any one seen this or have this bug?

OS X Technologies :: Command Line Editing -- Move Quickly

Jun 21, 2012

Macintosh-HD -> Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal

I'm running bash.

I have a long command line:

/Users/mac/Sites/bithoist/BitHoist-PPC-MacOS-X   -offset 0x0000  /Users/mac/Sites/bithoist/commandLine/bins/aSunbird.bin   -stdout -hex   -r 0x0000,0x002f 

I'd like to move quickly to the last 0 in -offset 0x0000. 

I know about control + a and I found out about esc + f.  I do not find pressing esc then f then esc then f that easy.  I'd like to at least be able to hold down the esc key and press f's. 

Could I redefine a word to only be " " (space) in the terminal?  Not sure I like this idea.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: No Longer Move Program Icons From Applications Folder To A Sub Folder

Jun 11, 2012

After installing Lion, I can no longer move program icons from my applications folder to a sub folder. When I do, it makes a copy and leave the original in the applications folder. When I then try to delete the icon in the applications folder it tells me it's required by the OS and won't let me delete. I'm forced to keep certan applications such as Time Machine and Stickies in the application folder.

Feb 25, 2012

Why does Mac OX 10.6.8 keep making copies of a file anytime I download, copy, or move a file? It will copy, dowload or move the file, then begin making copies until I reboot. This makes it impossible to deal wit hfiles unless I want to spend a lot of time rebooting after every time, then deleting all the redundant copies.

OS X Technologies :: Creating A Folder On An SMB Share Using A Mac

May 10, 2012

Our environment has multiple Windows file servers, both 2003 and 2008. If one of these SMB shares is accessed from a Mac and the user creates a folder, will the ACLs on the share that are set to cascade actually cascade to this newly created folder? We've had issues in the past where ACLs that are supposedly set to cascade on a shared folder are not present on sub-folders created from Macs.Next question: if the share resides on a netapp device, do the same rules apply? The Macs are still connecting to these shared folders using the SMB protocol.All Macs are bound to our 2008 AD domain and use network accounts with local homefolders. The issue seems to happen when one or both of the following things happen:

1. A Mac user copies/creates a folder on a Netapp share and for some reason it doesn't inherit rights correctly

2. We move the folder from one share on an actual Windows server to the Netapp and it doesn't take permissions correctly.

OS X Technologies :: Copy Folder From Server To Remote?

Mar 7, 2012

Im trying to run an rsync command which copies a backup of a server services folder using a remote computer. The backup folder of services resides on the main system disk.  

AR-ADL-MBP1-John:~ john$ sudo rsync -va -e --delete ssh admin@10.105.141.66:/Volumes/Server HD_mail/Data Store Backups /Volumes/ARINA temp

errors out with building file list ... rsync: link_stat "/Users/john/ssh" failed: No such file or directory (2) rsync: link_stat "/Users/john/admin@mail.arina.biz/Volumes/Server HD_mail/Data Store Backups" failed: No such file or directory (2)   

I've also tried to open the server in finder and run the rsync without ssh. This works for non system disks but get permissions errors on this system disk rsync: readdir("/Volumes/Server HD_mail/Data Store Backups/M-W-F/Data_Stores/mail/259F2CAC-D0EB-4348-B85F-1257F8242E87"): Permission denied (13)

OS X Technologies :: Combine PDF Pages Folder Action?

Mar 30, 2012

I am running OS 10.6.8, using Automator to create a Folder Action. The input is a single folder containing 2 or more PDF files. I drop this folder onto the folder with the action attached. All of the PDFs are combined and the resulting PDF is copied to a new location. 

It works very well with one problem. The name of the combined PDF is an automatically generated system name. I would like this PDF file name to change to the name of the original folder that contained the original PDFs. 

To summarize: "Folder A" has the action attached. "Folder B" contains 2 or more PDFs. I drop Folder B onto Folder A. Automator creates a new combined PDF. I would like this to be named "Folder B.pdf"

OS X Technologies :: Folder Action To Run A Shell Script

Aug 7, 2012

I want to create a Folder Action to run the following shell script on all files with extension .vcs: 

sed '1d' >reminder.ics 

The job of the Folder Action is to take any Calendar item files downloaded from TVGuide.co.uk, remove the first line and then save them as .ics files.  The reason for this is that the files are automatically generated with a carriage return on the first line, which BusyCal (being strict about these things) doesn't like.  It then rejects the whole file. 

I have tried doing this with Automator but the result didn't work. 

If it's possible to have the Folder Action retain the original file name (ie. everything pre-extension) that'd be a bonus.

OS X Technologies :: Create A Log File?

Apr 24, 2012

Been up for a while trying to figure this out with no luck. I created an app that will uninstall a program and all of it's files. 

example try                    do shell script "rm -rf /Applications/TestFakeApp"           end try     try                    do shell script "rm -rf /Applications/TestFakeApp2"           end try     try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.FakeTestApp.plist"           end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.FakeTestApp2.plist" end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Logs/FakeTestApp*"           end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/FakeTestApp" end try 

there are alot more paths to remove but this is just a few for example 

I want to be able to create a log.txt file on the desktop to show what has been removed and or what could not be removed. 

I then tried by creating a text document by using 

do shell script "touch ~/Desktop/test.txt" tell application "Finder" open file ((path to desktop folder as text) & "test.txt") using ((path to applications folder as text) & "TextEdit.app")end tell 

but I don't know what to do next. 

1. Have it check for each file to see if it was deleted or not

2. add it into the test.txt file

3. save the file once done

Applications :: Move "My Kindle Content" Folder From Documents Folder?

Jan 9, 2011

I recently downloaded Amazon's Kindle for my Mac and it automatically installed a content folder in my Documents folder along with my other folders. Now, I like to keep my Documents folder neatly organized and this My Kindle Content folder kind of messes things up a bit - I really don't like seeing this folder in my Documents folder. question: Does anyone know how to move this folder to another location? I've tried to browse the Kindle app, but I haven't found any obvious way to move it. However, I may have overlooked it. Also, I have tried to browse the Forums to see if someone else asked this question already - no luck yet. Has anyone out there had the same problem? If so, is there a way to move the My Kindle Content folder without messing things up?

OS X Technologies :: Using AppleScript To Rename Files By Folder Hierarchy

Mar 13, 2012

I have thousands of music projects with a somewhat fixed folder hierarchy and I'm trying to first rename and then extract (move) certain files from their original location. 

Here is the most common example of the hierarchy: ProjectName/Info/Setups/fixed name file (either a pdf, txt or jpg) 

My goal is to have these files renamed after their parent folders, all the way up to the Project Name and then have them moved to a set folder, out of this dull dictatorship I've created, so my files would end up with a name like this:  ProjectName - Info - Setups - fixed name file
