OS X :: How Do You Write Commands In Terminal?

Sep 12, 2009

I found some information in another thread that instructed one to write some commands in terminal but I have never used terminal and have no idea what I actually need to write.Can anyone please advise me on how to translate the instructions into what exactly should be typed into terminal?Spaces, special characters, anything?All I know how to do is start the app and then I am faced with some text and characters that are already on the screen.The instructions were:Open a Terminal and run some commands:cd /replace/this/with/the/path/to/contents/of/extracted/zip/file/ #this path probably is Downloads/360ControllerInstallsudo sh 360ControllerInstall.sh

OS X :: Running Terminal Commands Without Logging In?

Jan 22, 2009

I know on windows allows you to run batch files without actually logging into the OS. This allows you to put an base image onto a PC and use batch files to change settings, place on active directory, and other things without having to log in.

How do I do this with a mac? I want to be able to run 2 command line commands, one after the other once the other is finished, and then add it to Active directory. Would I do this in perl? and how do I get it to run without logging in so I can start it and then move on to other stuff?

OS X :: Hidden The Admin Account From Some Terminal Commands?

Nov 5, 2010

1) I had two user accounts: one standard, one admin. I had "hidden" the admin account from prying eyes using some Terminal commands (see here if you're interested some months later, I enabled the Open Firmware Password (hence, I can no longer boot into single user mode, boot from CD, etc)3) at some point, I inadvertently reinstalled OS X (don't ask... or do, I'll explain if necessary)4) when logging in, I ONLY have my standard account. My hidden admin account seems to be gone. OS X won't even accept the admin login/pwd when attempting to execute admin-only commands from within the standard account

OS X :: Automatically Running Commands Upon Opening Terminal?

Aug 23, 2010

Is there any way to have Terminal automatically run a command each time it is opened? I want to always have my background as my screensaver with the command
Code:/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background & and I have made an alias for the command so that I can just type in ss, but I have to type it in every time I open up terminal. I'd like to have Terminal start at login in the hidden state and run my screensaver background command automatically.

Is there any way to preserve them other than by making a copy of the preferences whilst OK?

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

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 :: Data Recovery From Deleted Folders / Files Are Deleted Via Trash?

May 18, 2010

I have a MacPro (Intel), and I had my Music folder on a second (non-boot) internal drive. That drive was getting full, so I bought yet another internal drive to put in one of the other bays, thinking to copy the folders to the new, larger-capacity drive. So I bought a 2 Tb drive and transferred all my MOVIES to the new drive, but then went back and deleted my MUSIC folder and emptied the trash. I knew immediately that I'd made a mistake.

I haven't written anything to that drive whatsoever from that moment on, so absolutely nothing should have been over-written. I have plenty of room on the new drive to which I can recover the deleted files. Unfortunately the folder/directory was very large, with over 20,000 files, mostly of podcasts/spoken word stuff, much of which is no longer available or would represent thousands of hours of download time, plus all my digitized folk music from long out-of-print LP records.

You'd think I'd be more responsible with >600 Gb of data! However, fortunately the drive is in good working order, it just requires a good recovery strategy. I know that services that do recovery charge a fortune, and because I haven't written anything to that drive and it still mounts without problems, I'm hoping I can do this myself with a good data recovery software package. Because I am talking about literally thousands of files, it is just too painful to think about editing all the metadata about each file (name, artist, album, etc.), and ideally I would like to recover the files and the file structure so podcasts are recovered as such, etc.

Is this at all possible?

If so, what are the relative merits of File Salvage vs. Data Rescue vs. Kernel for Macintosh (Nucleus Data Recovery) vs. VirtualLab Data Recovery vs. Stellar Phoenix? Is there something better than these--these are the only ones I found on a Web search. Are there any head-to-head reviews of which someone is aware?

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

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 :: Won't Work With Terminal / Everything Deleted

Dec 9, 2010

I have an issue with Terminal..a few months ago I was just running some commands..somehow I deleted everything from terminal, and wasn't able to run any more commands. Somehow, I got the functionality back by my address (whatever it's called..dunno the lingo), has changed.

here's what I see now:

Last login: Thu Dec 9 18:22:30 on ttys000
new-host-2:~ tylerclifford$ defaults write com.apple.Safari

It says new-host-2: now, instead of just saying my name (which is what it did before).

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Deleted Message In Outlook Are Still There

Apr 17, 2012

As I was unable to upload pictures in the original thread I started a part tow.  Original is here:


OK so did you type the title of your e-mail or any other unique text that relates to the mail here? Next you need to select 'All Mail' in the search tab.  Next add a Folder colum to your search results and see if it shows up there. 

if you now delete the found mails they will appear again in the deleted mail folder.  from there you can delete them again etc. Did you do this and they are gone?  And you are on a POP account?
