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?

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?

Applications :: Unable To Use Terminal / Terminal Stucks At Blank Login Window

Oct 20, 2009

Anybody see this before? I opened up Terminal.app and the window is completely blank. There is nothing in it whatsoever. Looks as if bash never started. The title bar simply says "Terminal ‚ÄĒ login ‚ÄĒ 80x24". I can type whatever I want in the Terminal window like it's a text document and nothing happens. If I restart the computer, this seems to fix the problem, but it seems to only be a temporary fix as the issue happens again soon after.

OS X :: Fixing Leopard Terminal Character Set?

Dec 18, 2007

Can anyone explain to me why this is happening and how to fix it (see screenshot)? It's supremely irritating when I happen to be in a directory where a parent folder ends with "o", because then it does this crap with the slash and it shifts all the text back one space but leaves the cursor out in front. This happens on both my Leopard machines.

On a related note, what's with the fancy quotes in Terminal now? How unnecessary...is there a way to turn those off too?

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 :: Unable To Type Password In Terminal / Terminal Not Reacting To My Typing

Jan 26, 2010

I'm trying to do something in terminal, and it asks for my password. I press a letter on my keyboard, and nothing appears. I am in the right window and everything, terminal just doesn't react to my typing. However, when I click enter, it says 'Sorry,try again'. So it does react to the enter key.

OS X :: (screenshot Of Leopard) Blurred Transparency In Terminal?

Oct 28, 2007

I remember seeing a screenshot of Leopard where the terminal was transparent, as well as blurred (like the menubar). This would greatly help readability, especially on certain backgrounds, but I can't figure out how to do it. Is this a feature of the new Terminal?

OS X Server :: Processes Started In Terminal End When Terminal Closed?

Jan 29, 2008

I'm running Symantec Backup Agent on our mac osx server. I start the agent in the terminal (./agent.be). It returns a notification that it started the service, however, it doesn't return to the prompt. Closing the terminal gives a warning that the process will be closed if the terminal is closed. Closing it does kill the process. Ctrl+c to return to the prompt also kills the process. So it's as if once the process is started in the terminal, nothing can be altered.

I am not much of a mac guy so please forgive me if this is a stupid question.

Anyone have any advice on how to handle this so the process is ALWAYS running?

OS X :: Unable To Install Terminal App - Run Terminal As Admin?

Aug 19, 2010

I'm on a standard user account and I would really like to install icalbuddy which is a terminal app. When I install apps normally I simply have to provide a admin name and pw, but this doesn't work when it is a terminal app because it requires that the 'su' command be run.

So I thought that I could run terminal as admin through 'su - admin' and then install. But of course the admin account doesn't have access to the user folder where the installer is located. I just can't win.

OS X :: Leopard Upgrade To Snow Leopard ... The Same As The Full Version Of Snow Leopard?

Jun 13, 2009

... long time reader, first time poster!! So I'm doing it. I'm switching from PC to Mac. I've been waiting for a while now and the new MacBook Pro's have convinced me. I'm buying the 13 inch this week.

However I'm slightly worried about the upgrade to Snow Leopard in September.

My question is if I buy a new MacBook Pro this week and upgrade from the current version of Leopard to Snow Leopard will it be the EXACT same as the version of Snow Leopard that ships with new MacBooks after September?

Is the upgrade just the same as the full software version available post September? Does the upgrade it just detect if you have the previous software and installs as if it were the full? Or does it just "patch" things depending on what's different from previous versions?

I can wait till after Snow Leopard is released in September 09 if it is different to Leopard upgraded to Snow Leopard.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Photoshop CS And Acrobat 6.0 Stopped Working In Snow Leopard?

Mar 25, 2012

"Photoshop CS" and "Acrobat 6.0 Standard" suddenly stopped working in my iMac, apparently after I upgraded it to MacOS 10.6.8 (the latest version of Snow Leopard).  Both programs had worked normally until that OS upgrade.  I deleted Photoshop CS and tried to re-install it from the original CD, but the installation never proceeds because I get an error message entitled:  "Install Adobe Photoshop CS quit unexpectedly".  This is the full error message: 

Process:         LaunchCFMApp [1516]
Path:            /Volumes/Adobe(R) Photoshop(R) CS/Adobe(R) Photoshop(R) CS/Install Adobe Photoshop CS.app/Contents/MacOS/Install Adobe Photoshop CS

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Software Update After Snow Leopard Clean Install

Jul 3, 2012

Today I performed a clean install of Snow Leopard on my late 2009 Mac Mini. After completing the installation, I began running software update to bring everything up-to-date.While software update did find and install a number of updates (10.6.8v1.1 Combo update, Security Update 2012-002, Apple Software Installer Update, iLife Support 9.0.4, Remote Desktop Client Update 3.5.3, Airport Utility, Java, Safari) it did not find an update for iTunes (which starts at version 9.x, I believe, in a SL clean install).I assumed that this was some sort of random glitch and manually downloaded and installed iTunes 10.6.3.After that, I re-installed iLife '11 (from a retail DVD, not the App Store).When I ran Software Update again, it found updates for Garage Band, iDVD, and iWeb, but it did not show the updates for iPhoto and iMovie.I found this to be unnerving, as I performed a clean install when I first obtained this Mini a few months ago and didn't experience any of these problems - all of my Apple software updated automatically through Software Update without a hitch.†

I began researching this problem online and found that other people have been experiencing this same problem (or some variation of it), and it seems like it began appearing around the time Apple updated some of its security certificates in March.In particular, I've found several references to the missing iPhoto update.This one is especially noticeable because an iPhoto library created in iPhoto 9.2.3 will not open in iPhoto 9.0, and this generates an error upon opening the program (i.e., a user backs up their iPhoto library created in 9.2.3, performs a SL clean install, reinstalls iLife, goes through the Software Update process until it shows that no more updates are available, and are shocked to find that they are unable to open their backed up iPhoto library because they have an out of date version of iPhoto).The most common (and admittedly logical) solution proposed in the threads I've read is to download any necessary updates directly from the Apple website.† However, I am curious as to why this previously functional feature now appears to be broken.Has anyone else been struggling with this?¬† Does it indeed have something to do with the new security certificates? Is Apple aware of the problem?

Applications :: Upgrade To Snow Leopard Or Install Snow Leopard?

Oct 4, 2010

I'm currently using a MBP 13 inch and am running Leopard on it.

I just bought a copy of snow leopard today but i don't know if I should do a direct upgrade from leopard to snow leopard, or wipe my MBP and do a fresh install so i have snow leopard on a clean slate.

Have any of you tried the second option before? Or do any of you have advice on which path I should take?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: 'Snow Leopard Cannot Install To Computer'

Apr 11, 2012

iMac with 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, plenty of space available and currently operating 10.5.8. Now I want to upgrade to Snow Leopard and since my Mac Mini came with it, I attempted to use the OSX install disc from the Mini in the iMac. I don't see a reason why this shouldn't work. There's no DRM or anything as far as I know. I'm just trying to bridge the gap so I can download Lion. I've looked into some of the advice others have given on this subject but my computer doesn't have those issues. I've tried booting from disc but I get the same message.

Info:
iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iPhone 4
