OS X Technologies :: Write A Script That Will Open A Specific Folder?

May 16, 2012

I'm trying to write a script that will open a specific folder.  The only problem is that it needs to be run on multiple machines with different Hard Drive names.  Here is a sample of the script that will work on my machine. 

tell application "Finder" activate open folder "HDD:Volumes:USERData:Users:Staff:Name" end tell 

Is there anyway to change "HDD" to whatever the current users Hard Drive is named?

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"

Safari :: How To Print (save) Pages As PDF

Mar 4, 2012

I´m running Lion, we´re getting better acquainted. However, with Safari I´m having problems when I try to save a web page as a PDF using the Print-Save PDF options. It tells me the file cannot be saved. I try duplicating, exporting, etc, and the only solution I´ve found is to email the document, which, when attatched to the email arrives as a PDF with no problem whatsoever. This is silly (close to dancing infront of my MacBook Pro with a black chicken spitting rum in all directions).

Intel Mac :: Folder Cannot Be Found And Safari Will Not Save Any Of Settings Changes

Jun 10, 2012

I work for a University and the school bought me an iMac in January. Before giving it to me they had a username and password put on it so that only I could access it. I took it home for the summer and realized that the login info would only work on the school's network. To get around this I erased the account by holding down "command +S" during startup. It solved the problem and I was able to login and use the computer however now it says iTunes cannot be located and therefore cannot be used and when I use Safari it will not save any of the settings changes like changed startup pages etc. I reinstalled Lion by pressing "command + R" during startup but still encounter the same problem. how to completely erase everything and go back to factory settings?

OS X :: Command Line Argument That Use To Open Specific Pdf Pages In Terminal?

May 1, 2009

Is there a command line argument that I can use to turn to a specific page in a Pdf file either through Preview or Acrobat Reader? In Windows, this works easily (for example: robat.exe /A "page=123", "foo.pdf"), but I've looked everywhere for a Mac equivalent with no luck. I would like to avoid using programs like Pdftk that involve copying pages into newly created Pdf files.

OS X :: How To Move Specific Files From Some Folder

Feb 2, 2009

I use Lightroom 2 to catalog my photos. I am in the habit of shooting in RAW+JPG mode which means when I download my photos there is both a .NEF and a .JPG file for each photo. Having done this for several years on a PC, I now want to use iPhoto to view the jpgs and keep with Lightroom for the nefs. I therefore want to move the .JPG files from /Photography/RAW/<Year>/<Month>/<Day> to /Photography/JPG/<Year>/<Month>/<Day>. So far the only way I've worked out is to copy the entire folder structure then use Spotlight to find the nefs within the new folder structure and delete them.

OS X :: Changing Background - No Specific Folder With Pictures

Jan 22, 2009

Anyways, so when you go to change your background. You have all these options to choose from folder wise. Well I remember clearly, very very clearly back in Tiger that you could create a folder, or just an existing folder within say "Photos" and you could click it and it would access that folder and all its pictures. Mainly for changing the pictures every 5/10/30/day w/e I like my background to change often. Many pictures.

Well I have had leopard for a while. I forgot when I installed it. But I have noticed ever since then that when I try and change my background. It only lets me use photos that are inside the original Photo folder. There are no folders present inside the photo folder in the Background change area. Only pictures are present. This is a huge issue due to how I like to have things organized.

OS X :: Specific Folder Requires Authentication For Some Actions?

Apr 3, 2010

I'm new here but hoping I can find some helpful information for a new problem I have with OS X. Earlier today, I noticed that my Transmission was failing to download some torrents I was snatching. Transmission couldn't create the folders I was telling it to create for new CDs in my MUSIC folder. When I looked into the problem, I noticed that I no longer had the option to create new folders and several other modification options. I created a new folder on the desktop and dragged it into the misbehaving MUSIC folder and my MacBook asked me for my password to "authenticate". What's going on? I have not encountered this issue before and it is only effecting the MUSIC folder; all of the sub-folders are functioning correctly.

MacBook Pro :: Can't Open A Specific Folder Without Mac Freezing?

Jun 6, 2010

I have a brand new macbook pro that I bought about 4 months ago. I am running snow leopard and out of the blue one day my computer gave me the spinning wheel and it went on for so long I had to power off my notebook by holding down the power. When I turned it back on I was stuck on the apple screen and I couldn't get passed it. So, I did a clean install and just moved all of my personal files and folders that my computer backed up to their original location.

After doing all of this and being up and running again I noticed when I try to access a personal folder on my system that contains images (jpegs, pngs) and some videos and psd files that my computer starts freezing up again and spinning and I have to power it off to get it to stop. I have resorted my permissions and ran Onyx once a week since this has happened and the folder is still giving me issues. I need to access this folder asap.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Use Time Machine On ONLY One Specific Folder?

May 7, 2012

I wish to use the Time Machine function to backup only one specific folder on my computer, the DROPBOX folder. How can I implement this and inform Time Machine of my choice? 

According to my first investigations, I only have the choice to select folders to EXCLUDE. This makes the setup of Time Machine unconfortable.
