I open up terminal, this shows up Code: Last login: Mon Jun 7 23:46:54 on ttys001
-bash: sdkfolder: No such file or directory xxxx-xxxxxs-MacBook-Pro:~ xxxxxx$ why is that -bash line in there?Also, I cannot run 'sudo' at all. I'm on an Admin account, and I have enabled root permissions..
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.
So I just inherited from my coworker's MacBook Pro. I then decided to transfer all of my files and realized that the root folder was still on his name. I changed the User's name in "System Preferences" but that did not change the root folder's name. I then went to Terminal and tried to change the folder's name using the "mv OldFoldersName NewFoldersName" and the prompt said Permission denied. I then used "sudo mv OldFoldersName NewFoldersName". After restarting my computer, all the files were gone and I landed on a "LION first time USE" type of Desktop. All my files are gone and terminal shows me two users' names under /Users/ => OldUser and NewUser.
What can I do to recover my old files? What can I do to repair my Mistake and only have one User?
Info: iMac (21.5-inch Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
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.
I am trying to delete some files with the command "sudo rm -rf". I get the return message "read-only file system." I am log in as adim and I don't have the option of changing it to a write file in the "get info" tab. How is it possible to delete these files?
When I try to sudo from Terminal, I get: media:~ frank$ sudo su -sudo: unable to stat /etc/sudoers: Permission deniedsudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quitting However, I can cat /etc/sudoers and see the content of the file. I'm a member of the admin group.
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 — login — 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.
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.
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?
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.
I do not have a password set on my MBP, but anytime that I have to sudo anything in Terminal it asks for my password. If I just leave it blank like at login, it says the password is incorrect. I have to do is set up a password use it in Terminal then I remove it afterwards. This is very annoying. Is there any way that I can do this without having to set the password every time?
While messing around with iPhoto and Time Machine, I ended up in the following situation. When trying to open Pictures on the sidebar of Finder, a Terminal shell pops up on the screen. Similarly, if I try to open Pictures on a Time Machine screen, I get the message "Open with Terminal" Now, I don't know how to use Terminal. How can I come back to the anterior situation where I could open Picture jut by a click?
I'm trying to change MTU settings in my router using terminal MacOs 10.5.8. eMac 1GHz.All goes well till I get to saving settings. "saveall" or "SaveAll" I get "Invalid interface name specified"It's probabably not saving settings.
I tried to install Mac OS X on a thumb drive which is 8 gb. I followed the instructions on this website: [UrL]. When I tried to make it bootable in the terminal, it said No volume specified. What should I do?
for some reason terminal is no longer in the utilities folder. I can't find it with spotlight either. But now I want it back. So how can I do this. I've got 1 mac os 10.5 install disc for my iMac. and 2 extra discs called install disc. I tried installing the optional things and basics. But still no terminal. So how can I get terminal back.
I dropped my laptop and the 1 control key is the only key broken and its now impossible to use the terminal for anything anymore. Is there a way i can remap the control key to something else within terminal?
