OS X Technologies :: (Error) ImportPluginLoading: Couldn't Load Plugin

Apr 26, 2012

I'm using the mdimport command in my shell script to force spotlight to index a folder.

Here is the code statement in my script that uses the mdimport command:

 thefolder=`pwd`# Force Spotlight to index the foldermdimport "$thefolder" Whenever I run my shell script, I get this error : (Error) ImportPluginLoading: Couldn't load plugin 'Spotlight/Google%20Earth.mdimporter/ -- file://localhost/Users/test/Library/Internet%20Plug-Ins/Google%20Earth%20Web%20P lug-in.plugin/Contents/MacOS/Google%20Earth%20for%20Plugin.app/Contents/Library/ 'What is this error? Why is the Google Earth plugin getting loaded when I didn't ask for it?

OS X :: OpenOffice - Which File Type To Save As - Can Load The .odt File Just Fine

Jul 7, 2010

Just put together a CV using Open Office, it's currently saved as a .odt. I'll be sending this out to a few companies and I'd like to know what the best file type is to select that will be readable by everyone? When I go to 'save as' I see a long list of options and I'm not sure which one to pick so that PC users can view.

Or can they load the .odt file just fine?

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

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 :: 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 :: Does The Exclusion Of A File Or Directory Remove Any Existing

Mar 15, 2012

Does the exclusion of a file or directory remove any existing, already backed up versions of that file or directory from TimeMachine? I have a large file I don't want backed up every time I connect to my backup drive.  It's 50GB+. I rarely touch the file, and when I do, I don't use it for anything that needs to be saved, it is a historical only version of my Parallels from an older Microsoft OS.  I occasionally need to open it to just look at something, but never 'do' anything with it. 

I want to exclude it, but don't want any older version of the file to be removed from backup. Does anyone know if exclusions are retroactive into the TimeMachine database?  Given this is 50GB+, trying it to find out is a quite slow process.

I have a set of photos I"d like to import into iPhoto, but iPhoto doesn't recognize them because they don't have file extensions. Could someone give me a script that will look at each file in a specific folder, check to see if an extension is present, and if not, add the correct extension based on the file type?

OS X Technologies :: Add Account Privileges To A Newly Created File?

Jun 11, 2012

I have multipe accounts on my Mac.  Two of them need to share certain files, but not with everyone else so I can't use the Shared folder.  When I create a new text file with AppleScript it has default ownership to the account that created it, but I need to give read & write privilages to it to the other account as well.  I can do this manually, but there are lots of files sometimes.  One trick I've found is to reset privilages from the next higher folder.  This saves time, but sometimes I forget.  Also when I do this it causes Time Machine to think all the files in that folder have been updated.  If the folder is large it may cause Time Machine to purge a old backup version.  What I'd like to do is find some AppleScript code I can use to add user "A" with read & write access to the permissions of a new file at the time my AppleScript creates that file.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Takes Literal Minutes To Load File Listing When Opened

Jun 30, 2014

I updated my circa 2013 Macbook Air 13" to OSX Mavericks and a strange issue has started. Every time I open Finder it takes literal minutes to load the file listing, and while it loads it freezes the section where the file listing loads with whatever background it was opened over. This happens all the time, and once it finally loads, it will do the same thing if I try to go to a different folder. This renders Finder essentially useless and I have had to add a third party (forklift) app to browse and manage files.

OS X Mavericks :: Application Fails To Load When Clicking On File In Finder Or Attachment In Email

Aug 26, 2014

I have a problem that when selecting a file that is either an attachment in email or is in my finder, double clicking on it fails to load the associated application successfully. For example, selecting a pdf file results in the pdf reader logo appearing on the lower bar on the screen, bounces up and down as if it is doing something, but just continues to bounce. I have to force quit it, then go to my application folder to load reader directly, and from within the reader I can then go and select the file. This isn't an application specific issue (It does it with Excel, Word etc). 

It only started recently. I'm using a MBP summer 2010 with Mavericks 10.9.4. Everything else seems to work.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)

I managed to successfully hide the file: cat picture.jpg hidden.rtf.zip > picture2.jpg

results in a picture (picture2.jpg) that is the size of the sum of picture.jpg and hidden.rtf.zip. I presume this means that I am successfully putting hidden into the picture.I can open picture2.jpg, but I can't figure out a way to access the hidden zip.
