OS X Technologies :: Slow To Open And Save Files

Jun 15, 2012

My Macbook Pro with Mac OS X 10.7.4 has been real slow lately in opening files, saving documents, opening webpages. I often have MS Excel and Word and Outlook open so not sure if that is the problem.

OS X :: Open / Save File Dialogue Slow On 10.6.2

Feb 9, 2010

After using my Mac Pro for a while without rebooting, the "open file..." dialogue starts to slow down. For example in Safari when I'm pressing "cmd O" it takes like 5 seconds until the window pops up, sometimes showing me the beachball... this is system wide, it is reproducible in every application and will be fixed on the next reboot - then it takes a couple of hours until it starts hanging again. I have no idea whats causing this but it has been there for months and right now its going on my nerves... There's also a thread on the Apple boards [URL]

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: 

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/eclipse/swt/widgets/Display

Software :: Slow Open / Save File Dialog System Wide

Nov 5, 2005

When ever I try to open or save a file in any application the spinning wheel is shown and the dialog takes from 5 to 20 seconds to display. Once it is on screen the speed returns to normal. I have a G5 Power Mac 1.6 GHz (Single Processor) 2 GB RAM (crucial) 2 SATA hard-disks (original 80 GB used as a clone for the 160 GB - I use carbon copy cloner) Everything else is as standard with the Mac. This problem started with 10.3 and may have been at the same time as installing the second 160 GB hard-disk, cloning the original to the new one, then changing the SATA cables around to make the new hard-disk on bus A. I then upgraded to Tiger but the problem still persists. I have tried repairing permissions and have used support tools like cocktail etc to check for hard drive issues and clear the cache files.

Also, on installing the second hard-disk, I also tried swap cop to change the swap file to the backup hard-disk. This did not work so I manual modified the files to return them to the original state. I did this while the system was running 10.3. I take it on upgrading to 10.4, the swap file config would have been fixed anyway? Everything else on the system seems fine. If nothing specific is found I may try removing the old hard disk.

OS X :: Cannot Open And Save Excel Or PowerPoint Files

Sep 11, 2009

I cannot access or save exel or Powerpoint Files. I did restart the machine after every install. I also repaired the disc permissions but I had two messages come up:
1. SUID file " system/library/CoreS...as been modified and will not be repaired
2. SUID file " system/library/Private...as been modified and will not be repaired When I try and open an excel or PowerPoint file that already exists, a message pops up and says that "the file cannot be accessed".When I try and save a new file it says that several things could be wrong such as:I have installed and uninstalled so many times. I have called apple and they said its a Microsoft problem so they wouldn't help. I then called Microsoft and they wont help unless I purchase another copy. The copy I originally had got deleted during my reboot. I have no idea how to solve this problem. I need excel in order to do my schoolwork.

MBP then now it running so slow on start-up and apps are very slow to open like around 5 minutes. Every action that I try to do like clicking on the apple in the upper left it freezes showing a spinning wheel and it will take time to show the drop down options. I checked disk utility and it said that HD is ok, done verify/permission verify and repair.

I checked the activity monitor noting the ram/CPU usage and its normal it even tells that 2GB of ram is not use.It shows not responding in the activity monitor if you open an app for around 5mins then it opens or it will crash.I already done the 2 kinds of reset and did not work.BUT it opens normally in Safe mode.

Mac Pro :: Wireless Connection Is Very Slow , Every Web Page Open It Take Minutes To Open?

Oct 9, 2008

i've just bought my new mac pro, i'm very happy with it's performance, but there is 1 small little tiny problem, i've ordered my mac pro with wireless card, but my wireless connection is very slow , every web page i open it take minutes to open, before i had an imac, the wireless connenction was super fast, then i've sold it to my dad , but my new mac pro is very slow, mention that it's in the same room and in the same place my imac was.

i've check my bluetooth, i've send and receive some files with my bluetooth to my moblie, it was great, but when i copy files from my brothers computer it was slow and then it stucks , with my imac this never happens.i opened my mac pro to check the wireless card and i found this:-
antenna 1 was in the bluetooth card.
antenna 2 was in the upper wireless card.
antenna 3 was in the lower wireless card.

the weird thing i've found is that my speed connection it goes fast and then is goes slow then fast then slow, it's not stable, another weird thing is that my wireless speed is slow then when i press the wireless bars it goes fast then it returns slow again.this is a really lousy service from apple to make the wireless card as optional , it's really unfair i mean it is the most powerfull mac ever and wireless is not included one more question, is there a difference between the wireless card in the imac and in the mac pro?

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 :: How To Recover Deleted Files

May 21, 2012

I deleted my recipes file by accident. I just looked one day and it was gone. I had moved it from my document file to the desk top because I couldn't figure out how to create a shortcut for that file to eliminate going through all the steps to get to the file. Now, it is gone. Who the heck knows how that happened, but it did. the steps to recover those recipes. Most of them are written in the PAGES file extension, so the DOC recovery system I used didn't see any of my PAGES files.

OS X Technologies :: AppleScript To Delete WAV Files Over X Days Old

Mar 29, 2012

This is probably very easy but I just can't get my attempts at applescript to work. I normally use Windows but the Apple server hosts our phone system and I've been told I have to delete all old voicemails for data protection reasons.I would like to delete all WAV files in a folder tree over 90 days old and have this script run once a week.The folder is on a disk called Vision Array, and the folder path is Vision, Voice, Voicemails with subfolders 2010, 2011, 2012, each with folders within them.

The folder seems to have some sort of security on it that only allows the Vision user to modify it. I know the Vision password. I've tried do shell scripts find -type f -exec rm etc but get syntax errors.I've tried delete every file whose modification date is less than etc but get errors saying the modification date couldn't be turned into Unicode. I also couldn't get this to recurse folders.

OS X Technologies :: Combine 2 PDF Files Into 1 Using Apple-script?

Jun 22, 2012

I am just starting out with applescript and could do with a pointer please. I have written a script which saves two pdf files from an active Illustrator document in the source folder of that document. The issue I am have now is that I cannot get the two files to combine into a single PDF file. The whole script is quite long and is works apart from the combine PDF part?

tell application "Finder" try open (every document file of container of file_path whose name contains ".pdf")  on error display dialog "no PDF file located"


Both PDF documents open and are set as the variables docRefA and docRefb, but the acrobat command 'bring to front' and 'insert page' do not seem to be working. I get an error come up in an illustrator dialog box saying "Adobe Acrobat Pro got an error: document "84056_R1.pdf" doesn't understand the bring to front message".
