When I create a new file, for example a text file that contains several commands, the new file is automatically only given read and write permissions. I would like the execute permission to also be automatically assigned. How I can change this.
I have a 15 inch MacBook Pro core i5 and I would like the keyboard backlight to turn off automatically when I go into fullscreen mode when I watch a video. Is there any setting I can change, so I don't have to turn it off manually every time I watch a movie?
When I connect a USB drive, it shows up on my desktop, but Finder won't find anything on it because it doesn't get indexed.¬†I'm running OS X 10.5.8 (9L31a) on an iMac G5 with a PowerPC G5 (3.0) processor.¬†The drive in question is NTFS, but it also seems like the Mac doesn't index FAT-formatted USB drives if they were formatted on a PC.¬†Is there any way that automatic indexing could have been turned off?¬† I think the department that had this system before we got it would have turned that off if possible, and I'd like to find out how to turn it back on?

OK, brand new to Aperture from iPhoto.Not a professional just a frequent traveller with lots of pictures.In iPhoto we had Folders say "Travel" then Sub-Folders like "Turkey" then folders in there for various cities, so "Istanbul" for example.Then inside there we have an album.
Projects is unimportant to us because we do such a good job of organizing our photos, usually at the end of the day, but certainly on the plane ride home.I have Projects hidden in Aperture so that is fine.But today we tried to make a new Folder and it placed it at the bottom of Projects, if we make an album it places it at the bottom of all the other Folders in our Picture library.
Our work around was go back to iPhoto which works the way we want it to.Short of dragging the Folder that Aperture made in Projects down or working in iPhoto is there any other way to make a Folder appear automatically in the Pictures area vs. Projects?
I'll have to provide some background info so you know what's going on. I'm setting up a preconfigured .conf for Viscosity (OpenVPN). What my sh script does is copies all the pertinent files to the correct folders and runs sed to customize it for the particular user. Normally you'd just chmod +x it to make it executable..in this situation EVERYTHING needs to be rolled up into one click as this will be distributed to 'uninformed' users and needs to be foolproof. I've tried "sh->app" rollers such as platypus and they suck and only run half of my script at best. So experts, I Ask, how does one make a self-contained, executable .sh script that can be distributed and executed on multiple computers without ANY user intervention beyond "download this and double click it"
All of my accounting for the past 10 years are in Quick Books 6.0. I have to transfer everything to Quick Books 2009. I backed Quick Books 6.0 onto a jump drive. I have upgraded my old computer with OS 9.2.2 to a imac with OS 10.5.6. When I attempt to transfer the data from my jump drive, I receive the following message: Backup: cannot execute binary file It also says under "kind": unix executable file I called Intuit and they could not help, they said it was a Mac problem. I called Mac, they said it was an Intuit problem.

I tried to locate /Library/Logs/PanicReporter according to this link to no avail. I'm not happy with logging using verbose mode and having to retype it all up. I also don't have it in a network of macs to allow for this technique and I feel as if there's a pretty obvious way of capturing these reports that I'm missing.
I want to copy certain files (to an external hard drive, but that doesn't matter) to another folder. But i want it to do it automatically with one click (or two, but you get the point). I want it to only copy files that are also in the destination folder from the source folder to the destination folder. (sorry that doesn't make much sense). But my goal is to back up my music into a folder, but not all of, only the folders that are already there. So basically, replacing old with new, but adding no new folders at all.
I have a memory stick I use for college and I edit some work at home on my Mac, when I connect it to my Mac and then in college (PC) I get some extra files which are highlighted with a underscore before it such as documents. Anyone know how to get rid of them, I tried deleting them but they get regenerated next time I connect it to my Mac.
is there a way to switch network settings automatically because of whether or not I am connected to a certain (non-WiFi) LAN? I have to manually set the IP address and such when I am at work, but would like to have DHCP at all other times. The Location Managers I found can do this only on the basis on whether or not certain WiFi networks are found. However, there is no WiFi at work - so I am looking for a program that detects this specific LAN as soon as I plug in the ethernet cable and then sets a specific location. And vice versa: if I unplug the cable, I want to return to the other location...
I have mac os x version 10.5.7 running on a macbook pro 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. And my boot camp version is 2.0.
I installed windows vista via boot camp, then uninstalled it following the procedures in the boot camp help file. However after uninstalling windows, whenever I start my laptop it is unable to boot into mac automatically. And after a while shows a screen showing an error that it could not find a bootable drive. So I have to manually press alt(option) button and select the Mac drive to boot into mac os. There is no other os installed than mac.
I don't really remember what I was doing but it just turned off then when I tried to turn it on it would make a sound like when you turn it off. I think its the hard drive stopping but its like high pitched to low. and it kept doing that then after a few times I got it to start up.
