OS X :: Can Make An Application Launch With ITunes
May 4, 2010
My last.fm application automatically launches when I open iTunes, because it has a plugin in iTunes.I have a nice lyrics application called Get Lyrics that automatically downloads lyrics as I listen, and I'd like it to automatically launch with iTunes as well.I don't want it to launch at login, only when I open iTunes.
I did a software update, and now Safari, iTunes, and just about every other application (software updater, pages, etc.) won't launch!When I click on them I get an error message "The application quit unexpectedly".I just got my macbook, and it doesn't work
For example, (when Safari or Terminal application is already launched) pressing the dock icon or launching from quicksilver brings the window to the front (or moves to a specific space where the window is in).
Is it possible to modify this behavior to opening a new window? By clicking the dock icon (or some sequence of keyboard shortcuts) I want to open a new window of safari or terminal. Furthermore, it would be great if this can be done to the current 'space'.
1-can i add an application to launch in expos頳hortcut?2-how to cancel changes applied to an application's preferences if a mistake has been made?3-when force quit doesnt shut an application, what do i do?4-how reliable is the stikies app in dashboard? ever lost what you had taken down?5-if many windows and apps are open. is there a easy way to minimise all and just keep one instead of minimizing them one by one?6-what happens to a new file that im currently viewing while time machine is backing up? backed up or skipped?7-built in mac firewall, anything to do? shall i select allow all incoming connections or only essential services? 8-my document folders such as "movies", "music" etc. why have i got 2 different my documents? one serie is in places->home folder and the other is under places->documents
How do I do this? I want to launch app 2 while working in app 1 without having app 2 jump in front of app 1, but others, such as Microsoft Office Suite for mac, jump to the front every time (namely excel) no matter what.
My macbook 2.4 bought last nov 2008 was installed with i-life 2009. The OS is Leopard 10.5. The problem now is that I cant launch the photobooth application and i-chat cant detect the i-sight camera. Is it the newer version of i-life thats causing this! Bought this mac from a friend and I really dont know if the factory installed OS is the one that is installed now. It may have been upgraded likewise. Does all this relate to the fatc that I cant use photobooth and ichat doesnt detect the isight?
I'm OS X 10.4.4. G4 15". I wanna launch applications just by pressing a function key. Used to do this with system 9. Mac help seems to imply I can't. Note: You can create keyboard shortcuts only for existing menu commands. You cannot define keyboard shortcuts for general purpose tasks such as opening an application or switching between applications. Am I slow, or is this saying I can't "quick launch" an app with a press of one button? Is this really true? Is there no "one touch" way to launch stuff? (And not on startup - I've got that figured out.)
So everything installed on my Lion iMac works absolutely fine. However, I recently tried to re-install Appfresh (an application updater), so I used Appcleaner to uninstall it, grabbed a new download, dragged it to Applications as normal, double-clicked it.. nothing. The icon sits in my dock, and the indicator pulses, continuously, but the application never appears. It's not in the Force Quit menu, and Activity Monitor has no trace of it either.
I thought, okay, something up with Appfresh. But I've since tried a couple of other apps, and a game (Botanicula), and the exact same thing happens. I've done nothing new in the way I've installed them, opened their .dmg files, and dragged the application into Applications, completely normally, but they all do the "sit in the dock and nothing else" thing. If I left-click them once in the dock, they vanish, and that's all I hear of them. I've tried Disk Utility to do both verify and repair permissions to both the disk and the partition, but that hasn't solved the problem. I'm running the latest 10.7.3 with all patches to remove Flashback, etc.
I have a late 2006 MacBook (the one in my signature). It's running the latest issue of Snow Leopard (10.6.4). I have upgraded the factory RAM from 1GB to 2GB, and the factory HDD from 120 GB with a 320 GB hard drive. Lately, all my apps are taking forever to launch. Firefox took 27 bounces before stopping, and then another 10 seconds or so before the window actually appeared. VirtualBox used to be snappy and responsive, but now it's so slow I actually boot up my 8-year old Dell if I need to use Windows. It never used to be this slow.
I'm constantly getting beachballs...even simply quitting Firefox seems to be too much work. Just for kicks, I popped in the factory hard drive and WOW everything felt so much smoother. As far as I can tell, the only things that are different between that hard drive and my current one are that (1) the old one is running Leopard (10.5.6), and (2) I have created a secondary account on the newer setup for my fiance. My two best guesses at this point are: 1. Issue with the new hard drive? 2. MacBook is slightly underpowered for running Snow Leopard?
I purchased and downloaded Warcraft III from blizzard and was wondering if I could learn how to solve this problem. After The download is finished, I attempt to open up the installer and I get a message saying "Application launch failure: The application "installer" could not be launched because of a shared library error: "<installerLauncher><CarbonLib><CFMPriv_LaunchServices><>".
I recently bought iMac on 2011 with snow leopard installed, recently I decided to try lion, I made a fresh install but since then my Mac is just making these annoying noises, kind like alert beep every time I launch an application, surf on web...
How the heck to I stop Lion from launching old docs when I open a new doc in MS Word, Excel, Preview, etc? I HATE this feature. Twice now I've edited the wrong document because when I click on a new Word doc, one that I worked on last automatic pops up on top of it. This is a ridiculous feature! Also, I don't need photos that I looked at yesterday magically opening when I open a new photo in Preview. That can be embarrassing if is someone is looking over my shoulder, if you know what I mean. Do I need to make sure I close all old docs instead of just quitting. Is there a way to just turn this frustrating auto open feature off?
Cannot send problem to apple since the program isn't useable. When I attempt "relaunch" I get the same message again. It tells me "the application mail quit unexpectedly. Mac OS X and other applications are not affected"

I started up my computer and don't see any of the icons or HD icon on my desktop, but can see the image and the toolbar pops up on the bottom. I can run safari, itunes, iphoto, etc. but when I click on MS word or PP I get this message: Application Launch Failure The application "Word" could not be launched because of a shared library error: "D<Microsoft Word><Apple;Carbon;Multimedia><CFMPriv_DVComponentGlue><>" I can upload docs as attachments, but can't open any microsoft stuff. What should I do? My roommate has a new version of MS office I could install, should I do this?
Whenever I launch Pages, the application opens pretty much all the documents I've worked on. I take care to close all the windows, hoping that they won't launch again next time I start the application, yet they do. I can't find a setting in the preferences or Settings to disable this behavior.

Do you know these 2 icons on the right, one for apps and one for docs? How fast are your animation before it shows up the menu wiht all apps inside? Mine seems a bit slow, like on a pc with an old or not updated video card. My MPB is 1 month old. i'm sure it was faster with fresh MACOS installed. More icons in it = slower?
I have late 2008 MBP that run on leopard and I was using fan control (I forget the name) but now I cleaned install SL and I don't have that app. If I keep my MBP on for hours it become hot (around 60-73 c) and before it was cooler (around 40-55 c). Is there other app better then that?
I've been trying to install some software, however, every time I try to do the "make" command on a Makefile, I get the following error: -bash: make: command not found. The manual page does not exists either. I have no idea why the "make" command doesn't exists. I might have added a missing command in the past, but I don't remember. I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.7. Can anyone guess what the problem is?
I am using OSX Snow Leopard. It's really great, but the folders and items within them are a total mess. When I copy or move anything to a folder, all the other icons move and icons even appear on top of one and other. Please is there any way to stop this - is there an app or something that will make the folders as tidy looking as they are on Windows? And please leave out all the Mac/Windows fanboy stuff - I have no problems with either OS.
This is weird. A few days ago iTunes 10 started causing my computer to go crazy every time I launched it (didn't realize it was iTunes at this point causing the problems). The computer would slow to a snail's pace and eventually completely freeze. Then a day or so later iTunes stopped launching all together. It bounces in the dock, stops and then has to be force quit. Most disturbingly after one of these unsuccessful launches, when I try to shut down, the computer hangs and basically freezes requiring a hard shut down with the power button. A few reinstallations later, no change
Dialog appears and says" This version of iTunes has not been correctly localized for this language. run the English version."I click OK and the dialog drops me to the Desktop. Nothing else happens. I tried iTunes 10.6 when it was released, which resulting in a crash every time I connected an iOS device so I 'downgraded' to 10.5.3.I thought maybe this was the fix. I guess not. "Downgraded to 10.5.3 again.
