OS X Technologies :: What Happened To Open Source Downloads

Apr 24, 2012

I'm wondering where to go to find the lastest things like emacs, python distributions, apache, etc. There used to be a bunch of them on apple.com but they keep moving things around and I'm having trouble finding them.

OS X Technologies :: Changing The Keyboard Input Source From Command Line?

May 3, 2012

Is anybody know if there is a way to switch to a particular "input source" (keyboard) with a command line? (or with Apple Script).

Not switch to the next or the previous, but to a specific one. Like switch to "Canadian French" or "Us English".

OS X :: Just Darwin BSD 10 - Open Source Parts

Jan 31, 2010

I'm interested in running a Darwin OS, basically just the open source parts of Mac OS X. There isn't a whole lot of recent information that I've been able to find on my own. Seems like most sources top out at Darwin 8.

Applications :: Getting Support For Open Source Software

Jan 27, 2009

I've been using Macs all my life, but it was only with Linux and also once I got into web development that I learned the art of getting help from strangers for your software. Of course, this was for free, open-source software, so I know the ropes of that quite well. Parallels is giving me problems. It seems to be somewhat "disconnected" from my system: Networking is down, and the resolution doesn't adjust with the window's dimensions. What's the best way to get support for software that isn't built around a community? I expect the Parallels guys to show me the door, as I'm not using the most recent version (seems they release two new versions every year...).

OS X :: How Can I Open E-mail Attachment File From A Trusted Source?

Oct 31, 2009

I received an e-mail attachment file from a trusted source, type .xfdl. Tried to open but was denied the reason was "this type of file may contain spam or a virus". I know the file has already been read by several individuals who said no spam or virus detected.

Software :: Open Source OS For Boot Camp - Play Windows Games?

Dec 19, 2008

I own a new-generation MacBook Pro, and I'm a computer gamer. While there are some really good games out for the Mac OS (Enemy Engaged, anything by Blizzard), Windows is still where most computer gaming is centered. I don't want to drop $200+ on Windows just to play games (because that's all I'd use it for). So my question is: Is there any free, legal (i.e., open-source) option which can run in boot camp that will reliably play Windows games? I don't care how crude or sophisticated the user interface is, so long as Windows programs (especially IL-2 Sturmovik) run on it and it's free.

OS X :: Downloads Go To The Small Pop Up Window And Not Just Open?

Oct 14, 2010

Please go easy on me as I am new to Imac and apple systems. I have always used windows before, and when you open an attachment in windows it just opened in to a new window. Is there a way to do this on an imac, rather than have it go into the pop up downloads window, for you to then click it, for you to then delete it once you have read it. All I really want to do is look at it. It seems a very long winded way of looking at an attachment. Is there a way of changing the settings or is this just the way it goes.

OS X Technologies :: Keep Getting Errors When Trying To Open JAR Files

Mar 19, 2012

My son is trying to open a .jar on his Macbook to add a mod to Minecraft.  It throws an error and directs him to Console each time, but Console isn't showing any errors.  Using advice on a couple of similar threads I followed some steps but ended up at a dead end. 

The Terminal message I get when I follow the steps in another thread is this:

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).

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.

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

Safari :: It Doesn't Keep Past Downloads In Downloads List

Apr 26, 2012

This problem I've been having started when the latest version of Safari moved from a Downloads window to a Downloads pop-up pane. My expectation as to how the pane should work is this: the 20 most recent downloads are shown in the list, and when a new download begins, the oldest download is removed from the list, thereby keeping the new list updated with the 20 latest downloads. My problem is that while the pane still keeps 20 past downloads listed, they're not always recent downloads. For example, when I download a file, the file will typically remain in the list until I begin a new download, at which point the slightly earlier download will be removed from the list, while even older downloads remain listed. So at the moment, listed are five recent downloads and fifteen downloads from many months ago, while downloads from days or hours ago have been removed from the list.In Preferences I have (and always have) "Remove download list items" set to "Manually." Currently I am running the lasted versions of OSX (10.7.3) and Safari (5.1.5).

ITunes :: Stop Getting My Mom's Downloads Through Automatic Downloads?

Apr 8, 2012

I have a mac, and my mom has a PC. I have been on her account since I was pretty young, so It's a shared account. It's under my email and apple ID, but my mom is on the same account, on her own computer. I want to have automatic downloads so I can use it for my iphone and ipad, but I don't want her song to end up going to my devices or laptop when she downloads from her own computer. is there a way to either turn off automatic downloads for just one computer, or get her a new account, but letting her transfer all of her music onto the new one?

OS X :: What Happened To My Administrator Rights

May 28, 2010

I was trying to change a file entry in the system files. After making the changes I clicked on "save" and was then told that I do not have the permission to write to this file. I checked the "get info" to this file and saw I can only read this file. I am however the administrator so why can I not make changes?
This is what I was trying to do:
Getting rid of Tynt in OSX

Mac OS/X

In Finder, from the Go menu, choose "Go to folder."

In the "Go to the folder" dialog, type "/etc/".

From the /etc/ folder window, open the "hosts" file in a text editor.

Add the following to the hosts file in its own line, using the site that applies to you: tcr.tynt.com

Save and quit.

At this point I was told that my changes could not be saved as I have no rights.

In System Accounts I am set as the administrator. I am on automatic Login. I was asked for my password in order to save my settings in the text editor which I entered but was then again told that I do not have the permission. The "get info" on the host file shows me as read only. How can I change this?

OS X :: Safari Slows Down When "Downloads" Window Is Open?

Jul 20, 2009

Basically what the title says. I have a few tabs open in Safari and everything's working great but as soon as I start downloading a file and the downloads window opens, the whole mac slows down, animations get choppy, and bookmarks below the address bar have problem catching up with the cursor (what I mean by that is that I quickly mouse over all of them from left to right and about three seconds later they start turning dark grey like when you hover over them).

The strange part is that when I close the downloads window, everything goes back to normal.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that this is on a Leopard install that is just a few weeks old, with everything updated and repaired permissions.

Applications :: What Happened To Check Spelling Before Sending?

Nov 4, 2010

My boss is VERY used to the feature in Entourage where it forces her to check spelling before the email sends, right after clicking "Send."

YES... I know Outlook now underlines misspelled words in red. But thats not enough...she wants that feature back, and I can't find it.
