OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Can't Open The Terminal

Apr 26, 2012

Whenever I try to run the terminal, I get this error message.You are not authorized to run this application.The administrator has set your shell to an illegal value. Just in case you're wondering, yes, I am logged in as the administrator. I have been having some issues with priveleges ever since I reinstalled my OS and loaded my info from a Time Machine Backup, so this might be related, but I still have no idea how to fix it.

Software :: Snow Leopard - Preventing Terminal's Shutdown Prompt?

Sep 20, 2009

I'm running Snow Leopard. If I have a couple of Terminal sessions running and I try to quit both of them via the Quit Terminal entry in the Terminal menu, I get a dialog box with the following message: You have 2 windows with running processes. Do you want to review these windows before quitting? I don't ever recall getting this message under Leopard, so I assume it's a new feature under Snow Leopard. I want to disable this dialog. Is there a property setting for the Snow Leopard version of Terminal which controls this?

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 V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Safe To Type Word Clear And Exit After Using Terminal?

Apr 8, 2012

I was using Terminal in my MacBook Pro to check if it was infected with the flashback Trojan but all results were negative. After confirming that I was not infected I typed the word "clear" and then the word "exit" before quitting terminal.Is this the appropriate procedure to close the terminal in OSX? Or it is an overkill? Will these commands affect the functionality of the command line in the future?

OS X :: Applications Won't Open Until Restart - Snow Leopard?

Nov 7, 2009

I've been having a problem with Snow Leopard since I installed it, and it's been bugging me like mad, but I haven't been able to find a solution or anyone with a similar case anywhere. Today, however, I tried again, and I ran across this news article, which perfectly described my problem:


Finally, twice in the past week now I have experienced a very old Mac OS X bug that I thought was gone for good: All of a sudden, when I try launching an application, the application's Dock icon starts bouncing endlessly in the Dock and the application never fully launches. Instead, eventually (after a few minutes of endless bouncing), the bouncing stops, but the application icon stays there without the status light indicating that it's open, and right-clicking on it results in an "Application not responding" message. You can force-quit and try again, but it won't work any better the second time.

And once this starts happening, if you want to get anything accomplished with your Mac, you really have no choice but to restart the entire machine.Has anyone experienced anything similar and/or knows how to fix it? It really inhibits me from doing almost anything with my Mac when I can't open any applications./edit: To add some context, this only happens after my laptop has been running for a while and seems to affect some applications but not others (maybe those that have already run since restart are fine?). I still have over 1.2gb of free RAM while I try it, so I don't think it's a memory issue either.
