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.

I've been struggling to move my data (photos / music etc) from my old G5 imac to my new imac (lion).Had iphoto all sorted (copied the files from external HD to Pictures folder.But now when I click on 'photos' it opens terminal (!!??)*I can see the files within but only if I CTRL click and choose 'open package'.I really don't understand.

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"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

Applications :: IChat Automatically Opens On Startup / Logged In At 2 Different Locations?

May 7, 2009

My iChat is automatically opening up on startup when I turn on my computer. I do not have the "Open at Login" optiona checked so I know it isn't that. Every time I turn on my computer, iChat opens and logs on and says I'm logged in at 2 different locations even though I know that I am not. I hit 1 to log off the other locations anyways.

OS X :: Terminal Notice Slowing Startup?

Mar 23, 2010

I have started to get an annoying Terminal window showing up when I boot up my Mac.A command of some cription needs to be completed before I can quit Terminal and allow the startup process to continue.

I have no idea what this command is about because I do not understand Java but it slows everything down and I'd just love to get rid of it.I don't think it is anything important and most likely just a simple bit of script will do the job.

OS X Technologies :: Apple-script "deamon" On System Startup Or Login Item?

Apr 9, 2012

I wrote an AppleScript script and saved it as an Applet that needs to run in the background whenever the system is up.

1/ I tried to set it as a startup item, so that it would start running as soon as the Mac is on -- however without success. I did not find out what the proper way is of doing this.  

2/ Then I tried to set it as a login item for each user. This is not as good, but I thought it may an alternative, 'buying me some time' to figure out how to do it properly as a system startup item. Launching the app works fine, but the user cannot log off again, because the system cannot seem to quit the script. So I have to stop the process in Activity Monitor, obviously not a solution.  

3/ Also, I would prefer the script to not show up in the Dock.

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 ‚ÄĒ login ‚ÄĒ 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 Server :: Processes Started In Terminal End When Terminal Closed?

Jan 29, 2008

I'm running Symantec Backup Agent on our mac osx server. I start the agent in the terminal (./agent.be). It returns a notification that it started the service, however, it doesn't return to the prompt. Closing the terminal gives a warning that the process will be closed if the terminal is closed. Closing it does kill the process. Ctrl+c to return to the prompt also kills the process. So it's as if once the process is started in the terminal, nothing can be altered.

I am not much of a mac guy so please forgive me if this is a stupid question.

Anyone have any advice on how to handle this so the process is ALWAYS running?

OS X :: Unable To Install Terminal App - Run Terminal As Admin?

Aug 19, 2010

I'm on a standard user account and I would really like to install icalbuddy which is a terminal app. When I install apps normally I simply have to provide a admin name and pw, but this doesn't work when it is a terminal app because it requires that the 'su' command be run.

So I thought that I could run terminal as admin through 'su - admin' and then install. But of course the admin account doesn't have access to the user folder where the installer is located. I just can't win.
