I want to build a redboot kernel in a wireless router, the command required from my newly acquired knowledge is insmod and modprobe.

OS X :: Terminal Says Command Not Found?

Jul 2, 2009

Last login: Tue Jun 30 15:38:02 on console

-bash: 2-18-09: command not found


I can use the Control>C command to quit that and return to normal. But it's a waste of time and I can't seem to figure it out. A Genius Bar Genius said to Archive and Install, but I don't think it's necessary. I just want to know how I can find whatever it is that's screwing it up.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Inherit Backups As Sudo Tmutil Not Found In Terminal

Feb 11, 2012

I get a "sudo: tmutil: command not found" message on terminal when I am trying to inherit backups as per the fantastic instructions on the website by pondini. What does it mean and how can I correct it? 

My old backups on time machine are not highlighted on time machine so cannot restore them. This is either because I have restored the OS or repaired the external HD used for backups.

OS X Mavericks :: Write A Simple Bash Command?

Sep 12, 2014

I have a mac mini that has some software that is supposed to start at bootup, but does not always do so.  In order to get the software running I need to open a terminal window and type some commands.  Is it possible to just write a text file and turn it into a .command file that will not require me to write it out every time. 

Here is exactly what I have to write in Terminal to get the program running again. 

sudo su

filler14

ignition stop

ignition start

exit

Typing sudo su asks for the password which is filler14.  After entering it I type ignition stop and it takes a second and it responds that it stopped.  I type ignition start and it takes about 3 seconds and responds that it is running.  I type exit to get out of sudo su and then exit again and it says operation complete, and then I close terminal.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Fix Broken Scrolling Through Bash History In Terminal

Mar 13, 2012

I write a bunch of command, then I use arrow up/down to scroll through the bash history and very often I find few characters of an old command (highilighted in red above) prepended to the one which is being retrieved from the bash history. Note that this is a display problem only, as the last of the commands above executed correctly.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Undo A Terminal Command?

May 12, 2012

I was frustrated with Google Chrome quiting whenever I accidently pressed command q, so I tried out some terminal commands I found online. One was defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSUserKeyEquivalents '{"Quit Google Chrome" = "@Q"; "Preferences..." = "@;";}' I don't know what the other was. They stopped chrome from quiting with command q, but now I can't quit chrome AT ALL.  Is there a way to undo everything I've ever done in terminal?  I should not be touching it...

OS X V10.7 Lion :: CVS Command Not Found?

Apr 13, 2012

I'm trying to access some files that are available through CVS in my boss' computer.

The problem I'm having is that everytime I try the CVS command I get the same -bash: cvs: command not found response. I've also noticed that the which command does not show any response: 

ME-MBP-2008:/ me$ which cvs
ME-MBP-2008:/ me$  

I've found the CVS stuff inside XCode.app folder (XCode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/cvs) but the terminal still seems to not be able to find the cvs command.

OS X :: Command To Clear Terminal?

Oct 5, 2010

Is there a command to clear the terminal screen that works like 'cls' on Windows? I know about 'clear', but clear just moves the prompt on the top of the screen, leaving the previous output visible if I scroll up.

A friend suggested 'clear_console' (I think he's on debian) but I can't find it on OS X or MacPorts.

OS X :: How Can I Easily Run A Terminal Command

Nov 19, 2008

I want to run some terminal commands fairly often... yet I don't want to have to type them. I just switched from windows, so I need some help as to how to do this.

In windows I would've just used a batch file to run command prompt commands. I need something that will let me just run it and it will automatically run the commands.

OS X :: Cannot Run Sudo Command In Terminal

Nov 29, 2009

I can't seem to run a sudo command in the OS X terminal. Every time I run a sudo command, I get no response, as if the command is not run at all. My sudo appears to be broken somehow. I've got a problem with mounting an NTFS drive that is dirty. I have a command I am trying to run using the "sudo" command, but it is not working.

Code: sudo /usr/local/bin/ntfs-3g /dev/disk0s3 /Volumes/WIN XP -o force

After the sudo, I am prompted for my password, but after that the only response I get is another prompt, as if the command was totally ignored. I have tried many different commands after the sudo, and cannot get a response from anything. I even tried "sudo tcsh", which should open up a new shell, but nothing. "sudo ls" also shows nothing, just another prompt.

OS X :: How To Run A Terminal Command When Logging In

Jul 23, 2010

What is the best way to run a terminal command when logging in? And by �best� I mean �fastest.� I�ve been encapsulating my commands in an Applescript, but it�s terribly slow to load, and I�m hoping there�s some UNIX back-end I can use to speed things up.

Specifically, I want to run a shell script that I wrote. It decrypts some folders inside my Home directory so I can use them (this part works seamlessly, I just need it to auto-run itself).

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Command Plus Numbers Not Working?

I use the Command 1, Command 2 keys in QuickTime Pro a lot to resize windows, but all of the sudden those key combos don't function at all. All Command key shortcuts seem to have left the computer. 

Not reboot nor Repair Disk Permissions helps. Did I accidentally trigger something with a typo?

OS X :: Massive Virtual Keyboard Found In Snow Leopard - How To Fix It

Sep 1, 2009

[URL]

"More from the irresponsible speculation department.. but IMHO more logically reasoned in this instance: Leander Kahney over at Cult of Mac just found a ridiculously huge virtual keyboard in Snow Leopard.

Located in System Preferences, it serves the same function as it did under Leopard, but is much larger. There's no reason I can think of why one would need a huge virtual keyboard just to show them what happens when you press the option key.

I find this fairly persuasive evidence of hooks being set in the OS for a touchscreen Mac, though I am aware of my bias, being on record as an iTablet fanboi. So take this, as every piece of speculation, with a grain of salt."

Hardware :: Printer Not Found After Snow Leopard Install?

Aug 30, 2009

I have a Konica Minolta Bizhub C350 (photocopier/printer). It connects via network to my airport express. All five of my Macs found it using Bonjour under Leopard.

I installed Snow Leopard on all five Macs, and now, none of them have the printer in their list of available printers. This is an older printer, however far too expensive to replace.

Any idea of how to get Snow Leopard to discover it again? I noticed that when I click on the printer preferences, and attempt to add it again, there isn't even a Bonjour option.

OS X :: Skim Command Not Found - Any Way To Create / Define?

Nov 2, 2010

I installed Skim to read PDF files in Mac, but if I write in the shell which skim or where is skim there is nothing. Then I guess there is no command called skim. My point is to create it, but I don't know how, can anyone help on this? How can I create a command? Then I'm using Kile and it gives me the following error:
/bin/bash skim command not found
I guess if I define the command this error wont appear.

OS X :: Command For Opening Files In Terminal?

Jun 25, 2006

You'd think this was all pretty basic. It probably is.

I'm trying to open/edit '/usr/local/php5/lib/php.ini' with TextWrangler through Terminal. The TextWrangler part isn't an absolute requirement. The directory exists and I'm assuming the file does as well. (No 404-esq errors during my fumblings and it was a standard installation of PHP5)

Also, is there any way to browse through the above directory using the Finder's GUI? That would be nice.
