OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Fix Broken Scrolling Through Bash History In Terminal

Mar 13, 2012

I write a bunch of command, then I use arrow up/down to scroll through the bash history and very often I find few characters of an old command (highilighted in red above) prepended to the one which is being retrieved from the bash history. Note that this is a display problem only, as the last of the commands above executed correctly.

Applications :: Unable To Use Terminal / Terminal Stucks At Blank Login Window

Oct 20, 2009

Anybody see this before? I opened up Terminal.app and the window is completely blank. There is nothing in it whatsoever. Looks as if bash never started. The title bar simply says "Terminal — login — 80x24". I can type whatever I want in the Terminal window like it's a text document and nothing happens. If I restart the computer, this seems to fix the problem, but it seems to only be a temporary fix as the issue happens again soon after.

OS X Technologies :: Why Has UUID Has Changed

Mar 4, 2012

I probably already have the answer to this question myself but I wanted to make sure, and also have a follow-up query based on the responses.The system board was replaced last year after a nasty scrap between a cup of black coffee and my MBP (you will have immediately deduced who won).Today I noticed that many of the plist and plist.lockfile files within my Library/Preferences/ByHost folder have duplicates, albeit with different UUIDs in the filename. The dates pretty much tie up with when the system board was replaced so my assumption is that the UUID changed with the new hardware.

Q1) Would someone be so kind as to verify my assumption, or make a loud raspberry if my assumption is erroneous?

On the basis that the response from our wonderful community is: "Your assumption is correct Livebox, you have not gone mad, and you may rest-assured that the world is at peace (for now)", my additional question(s) are:

Q2a) Is it safe to delete ALL plist and plist.lockfile files that sport the old UUID?

Q2b) Is it safe to delete ONLY those plist and plist.lockfile files that sport the old UUID AND have a new version that sports the new UUID?

OS X Technologies :: Unable To Open Terminal Window?

May 9, 2012

I am trying to do research on how to fix my current problem of not being able to open my terminal window.  When attempting to do so I get the following error message: 

You are unauthorized to run this application.

The administrator has set your shell to an illegal value. 

I looked at some previous posts and some people said download iterm2 and put the following command: sudo chsh -s /bin/bash my_username.  After this enter password and it should be fixed.  However when doing that I get the following response: SC is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported. 

Couple of things, firstly SC (which is me) is the administrator to this computer (this is my computer and there are no other users on it).

OS X Technologies :: Command That Works In Terminal Not Running As Launch Agent

Apr 11, 2012

Trying to run the following command as a Launch Agent (OS X 10.7): /usr/bin/find /Users/username/Documents/Dropbox/Public -type f -mtime +2 -print0 | xargs -0 rm -r 

Created a plist file (reproduced below) and saved to ~/Library/Launch Agents, but the command isn't executed either at the specified time or when the agent is loaded via launchctl.  If I change the command to a simple Applescript test: osascript -e 'tell Application "Finder" to display dialog "hello"' 

It runs correctly as a launch agent when loaded and as the specified time Which means there's something wrong with the first command (find). But the command runs as written when executed manually in the terminal.  

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Software :: Changed Passwords - Still Can't Login / Fix It?

Mar 14, 2009

Quick version:
Even though I can change passwords on an account I cannot login to the account with the new passwords (or the old one). I have tried changing the passwd with both in System Prefs and using "sudo passwd" in the Terminal.

Longer Story:
I recently changed passwords on my main account (call it "acct1") using the Terminal. However I then couldn't log back in, but luckily could still surf the web with acct2 (not an admin account). I found out how to create a new admin account (call it "acct3") by removing the /var/db/.AppleSetupDone file in single user mode. That worked, but (as I said in the quick version) when I change the password for acct1 in acct3, I still can't log in to acct1.

This is very annoying. Is there any solution or do I just need to copy acct1 files to acct3 and start over? I can't go into an Apple store for at least a week since I'm traveling.

I am new on mac os and newer dealing with command line. I've been installing mysql on my Leopard OS and i've noticed some strange behavior with terminal. When i try to login throught comman line i go to installation folder and type mysql -u root. Terminal prompts "Command not found" althought mysql comman is right there.

When i type echo $PATH i get /usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11/bin / So, right now i don't know if my terminal is working properly or not.

OS X :: Need To Run Program At Startup Before User Login

Sep 17, 2009

I am relatively new to MAC OS X (Snow Leopard) and Unix. I need to run my remote control software upon system start-up before user login. I know how to set a program to run AFTER a user logs in but this doesn't do me any good. For example: Right now I am using LogMeIn Remote Control Software. When I boot OS X the LogMeIn software is already running in the background at the user login screen before any user has even logged in.

I want to stop using LogMeIn and switch to TeamViewer but the TeamViewer software only runs after I have logged in. I need it to run at the user login screen before I have actually logged in so that when I reboot my computer or switch back and forth from Windows XP I can login remotely, just like with LogMeIn. With LogMeIn after a re-boot I the user login & password screen is sitting there waiting for me (or any user) to login. Is what I want to do even possible?

I cannot log in to my iphone, ipad or Apple mail with my google credentials. I made sure everything was being typed in correctly. The weird thing is, I am able to log in using [URL]website.

I don't know why I am not able to check my email unless I use the website. I tried clearing the captcha and even changing my password in gmail.

Can anyone tell me why this would come out of nowhere? I have not changed any settings on any of my devices or even though gmail. What's going on?

OS X Mavericks :: Write A Simple Bash Command?

Sep 12, 2014

I have a mac mini that has some software that is supposed to start at bootup, but does not always do so.  In order to get the software running I need to open a terminal window and type some commands.  Is it possible to just write a text file and turn it into a .command file that will not require me to write it out every time. 

Here is exactly what I have to write in Terminal to get the program running again. 

sudo su


ignition stop

ignition start


Typing sudo su asks for the password which is filler14.  After entering it I type ignition stop and it takes a second and it responds that it stopped.  I type ignition start and it takes about 3 seconds and responds that it is running.  I type exit to get out of sudo su and then exit again and it says operation complete, and then I close terminal.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Desktop Icons Not Show Up Or No Program Will Launch After Login

Feb 18, 2012

My Mac started doing this a few weeks ago, where after login it all kind of collapses. Sometimes the desktop icons won't show up, or Hear (which runs on startup) will get stuck loading for a long time. Sometimes everything seems fine but no programs will launch, or the dock won't respond.So far I've done an Onyx cleanup run, a Disk Verify and Repair. Permissions Verify and Repair and even did the good old Command+R on startup and reinstalled Lion. It worked the first time and then it went back to its old antics.I'm afraid if its a corrupted file and even if I get a new Mac then when I restore from Time Machine it'll carry over.

OS X :: Changed Admin - Old Users Name Still Shows As "Owner's Mac" On Login?

Jan 23, 2010

I just bought a pre-owned macbook off of ebay. This is my second mac, so I'm somewhat familiar with them. Here's my problem: When I first booted it up, it never took me through the whole "new owner registration" screen that you would see on a brand new macbook, it just went straight to the desktop. I went in and changed the Admin name and info etc manually, but when the computer is shut down and booted back up, it has my name listed on the login screen, but that little tiny title above it that says "(Owner)'s Mac" still says the old owners name! Furthermore, when i access mac programs such as Front row, it still says his name also.

So my question is, where do I go to change this? Do I need to go through the whole new owner registration screen manually, and if so, will I lose all of my work that's stored on my HD?
