OS X Mountain Lion :: Stop Password Request When Moving Items To Trash

Dec 4, 2014

Initially, the trash container worked as expected: Items would go directly to the trash and stay there until I emptied it. 

I don't believe I did anything to cause what it does now but I don't like it: If I move something to to trash, I am prompted to enter my password (which I really don't like) and no items are held in the trash (what I used to call the recycling bin--which I kind of liked having). 

As for troubleshooting, I have changed the preference settings under "Finder" and nothing changes.

OS X :: Request For Admin UID Password Immediately After Login?

Nov 25, 2009

I just logged in to my system after restarting and immediately, before opening anything (other than Finder), was presented with a request for admin credentials, I think saying something about a change to my login preferences, which didn't make a lot of sense to me.

Any idea what would cause this, or how to make sense of the logs to see what exactly prompted it?

I installed Flash and Adium on this new machine this morning - would this have anything to do with it? I'm unaccustomed to getting the security prompt at unexpected times and now very nervous.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Stop Apps From Accessing Files In Trash

Mar 12, 2012

Is there a way to prevent apps from accessing files that are in the trash?I recently got bit when I moved some files to the trash, checked to make sure that nothing was broken, and then took out the trash. Turned out some applications were still using the files while they were in the trash.Is there a way, either in terminal or finder, to leave the files in the trash but make it so no apps can see them? It would be nice if this was the normal behavior.

Applications :: Installing PKG Files Without Admin Name / Password?

Jan 1, 2011

I've got a few .pkg files that I'd like to install, but I don't have permissions. Is there a way I can get around this without the admin name and password? I don't have access to Applications, either. I usually just drag the programs into a separate folder so I don't have to keep the disc image. And if you need to know what I'm trying to install, it's Mac MSN 8.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Command & Delete Not Sending To Trash But Context Menu Works

Jul 5, 2012

my DELETE functionality within finder is not working consistently anymore.  I am only seeing this issue on my new MAC BOOK AIR (used for work and received just last week), and not on my macmini (that is also running Lion and I've had for a year). 

Basically, I am having problems deleting files using CMD + DELETE.  I hit this command and get the typically apple "ping" sound for a something that isn't working, however I can right click and hit MOVE TO TRASH and it goes immediately, which means it's definitely not a file permission/in-use/lockout issue. 

I feel like I did something stupid to cause this, but it only doesn't work occasionally.  I have noticed it moreso right after I open or have used a file, but while CMD+DEL doesn't work, the MOVE TO TRASH does, so i'm lost. 

extremely frustrated and I've been through my System Pref settings alot in case I turned something off.

OS X :: Desktop Files And Bookmarks Gone After Reset Admin Password

Apr 1, 2009

I have a Powerbook G4 running Tiger. I forgot my admin password (which was the only user account I had), but I couldn't find my install disc. I have since found it, but since I am the impatient type, I went searching google to figure out how to reset my password without the disc. One website told me to change the name of my "home folder," so I changed it from "Jason" to "Hello." It then said to reboot and type the following at the command prompt: "sh /etc/rc"

Which I did, and a bunch of text came up. Then I typed: "passwd Jason" to change the admin password. It prompted me to enter a new password twice, which I did. Then I rebooted. When the login came up, it had two logins to choose from, "Jason" and "Other." I chose Jason and entered my new password. When it logged in, all my desktop files were gone and all my Safari and Firefox bookmarks were gone. In my "/Users" folder, it now has "Jason" as the home icon, and beside that there is a folder called "Hello." In "Hello/Desktop," I found all my files that used to be on my Desktop. How do I get my old account back (Hello)? I still don't remember the password. Do I need to use the disc? Should I just drag all the files from the "Hello/Desktop" folder to my "new" desktop?

Also, when I went into terminal, and typed "ls -a /Users" it came back with this:
..DS_Store Shared Hello
...localized Jason

Software :: OS X Need Admin Password To Move Files From Finder To Desktop?

Feb 18, 2010

I have two accounts a standard user account that I use all of the time and a separate admin account to use when I need to. Okay, so I just started my mac up and was creating some new folders and moving files from my user folder to my desktop (on my standard account). OS 10.5 comes up with a box asking for an admin password to make changes. It also does this when I try to move files to the trash. How do I fix this permissions error? (I've already tried repairing permissions and that didn't work)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Installer Won't Accept My Admin Password

Mar 11, 2012

For the past month or so, any time I've tried to go through the process of installing an app that requires Installer to do the work, when it comes time to enter my admin password, nothing happens. The password box pops up, I enter the correct password (as when I enter an incorrect one it does its "incorrect password shake-thing") and, like always, the admin password box disappears. Normally at this point, the installer continues on to install the app, but instead it does absolutely nothing. I can click "Install" again to enter the password, but, again, nothing happens. I've tried changing my password, deleting preference files, doing a disk repair and permissions repair - nothing.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Empty Trash And Icon Never Indicates Files Are In Trash

May 1, 2012

Despite having several files in the trash, its icon never changes (always shows an empty trash) and the "Empty Trash" option is dimmed (that is, cannot be used). OnyX ws the only solution but it's temporary. What's the fix I should apply to Mac OS X?Also, why is it that every time I want to move a file to trash I must enter my password? It's annoying to say the least.Please help me as I don't want to go through the royal pains of installing everything again, Windows-style. I think Mac OS X should be better than that.
