OS X :: Shell Script - MV Command

Mar 5, 2010

I'll be the first to admit it, I'm bad with scripts, but I'm trying to figure this script out and have hit a dead end. There is a large list of MV commands to move a specific file into a folder, but the script isn't working when ran all together. But strangely, it will work when i enter it line by line into terminal. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

mkdir design02a
mkdir design05a
mkdir design06a
mkdir design09a
mkdir design09b
mkdir design12a.....

OS X :: Three Spaces Won't Allow To Directly Switch

Dec 24, 2008

I have Spaces set up to "switch directly to a space" using command+# For some reason, however, Spaces will only switch directly to Space # No matter what applications I have chosen for Spaces 2, 3, and 4, Spaces will NOT directly switch to them using the shortcut. I can still switch to them manually with command+arrow keys, though. It doesn't matter what application I choose as Space 1... I can directly switch to it. But the other 3 spaces just won't allow me to directly switch. (Yes, there's applications open and active in each of those spaces.) Anybody encounter this or know what's up?

OS X :: Cannot Switch Between Spaces Anymore

Sep 5, 2009

I've been using spaces ever since I bought my macbook pro and found it very useful. But after installing snow leopard, I haven't been able to use it properly. I currently have spaces enabled and have 2 spaces... when I activate spaces to show all spaces, I used to be able to switch between them by clicking on the space that I wanted to move to... however, I can't do that now. Every time I want to switch between the spaces, I also go back to the one I was already on.

OS X :: Changing Switch Between Spaces - Shortcut Key To Option Tab?

Oct 28, 2010

I've been searching in vain around the internet for a few days now for a way to change the hotkey for switching between spaces (by default, option-arrow keys, though I have changed it to command-option-arrow keys) to option-tab and shift-option-tab. To be more specific, I'd like option-tab to switch to the space to the right, and shift-option-tab to switch to the space to the left. I have downloaded BetterTouchTool (, and it can assign any shortcut key to the simple option of bringing up the spaces interface itself, but I can't find a way to assign a different shortcut key to actually switching spaces. Interestingly, using that app, I was able to assign a five finger swipe (which blew my mind, by the way) in the corresponding direction for which space I wanted to switch to by assigning the gesture to the shortcut key for switching spaces (so, five finger swipe to the right is assigned to command-option-right arrow).

Software :: Can't Use The Keyboard Shortcuts To Switch Between Spaces?

Sep 25, 2008

Today I upgraded from mac os 10.5.3 to 10.5.5, and now whenever I play World of Warcraft, I can't use the keyboard shortcuts to switch between spaces. Since I am an AVID spaces use (particularly when playing WoW), I am determined to find an elegant solution to this beyond reinstalling an older version of leopard.

That being said, on Windows I would start tinkering with the registry, seeing if there is a setting that may have been switched for full-screen applications that prevented the use of the shortcuts, etc. And, after doing some digging, I did find some basic files for Spaces (Resources, XML .plists, etc), but couldn't find anything like the registry where the settings are laid there such a thing? If so, how do I find/tinker with it?

I realize that you're encouraged NEVER to mess w/system settings blah blah etc... I've got everything backed up on the machine and could format/reinstall without any issues.

OS X :: Switch Window To Other Screen?

Oct 13, 2008

My old work PC had an application running which added a small < button to the menu bar next to the restore, min and max buttons which, when clicked would move that window to the adjacent screen.

Is there an app like this for OS X? I'm really looking for something I can evoke with a keyboard shortcut like spaces that simply moves the selected window to the same position on the adjacent screen so i don't have to constantly leave the keyboard to move windows around.

OS X :: Switch To Next / Previous Window

May 11, 2010

me how to switch to next or previous window in a mac? I am using a macbook pro, and before I formatted my laptop, I could switch between two windows by using control + left/right arrow. Whenever I used that command, something like the picture below would appear in the screen, and all the windows moved to the left, or right, and a fresh desktop screen would appear. I could switch the desktops with different set of applications running in both of them.

I searched for it, and according to some wikipedia topic about shortcut keys, control + left/right arrow is only available in leopard. But I could use it in Snow Leopard as well. how to enable the command again.

MacBook Pro :: Should I Switch From 13" Pro To 15" Pro? - Look At The Spaces Inside It

Jun 24, 2010

I have a 2.66ghz 4gb ram sd model with 320hd 13"I have a friend who is selling a 15" pro 3.06ghz 8gb ram 500gbNow I also have an ipad but I love the portability of the 13" although I realized playing with his the 15" isn't THAT much bigger....What are the major differences between them considering they are both core2duo, and where would I notice the speed or ram difference or even the graphics difference? More importantly tell me a real good reasonable price I should pay considering the new model is out with the i5 and i7 but yet the processor is slower than 3.06 as well.. what is an insane good deal?

OS X :: Command-Tab Does Not Bring A Minimized Window Open?

Mar 6, 2009

Is this just how the OS works or is there a setting I can configure. I'm used to being able to alt-tab on Windows and open a window and bring it to the front regardless whether it is minimized.

When I command-tab (or do the four finger thing on Macbook) it sort of opens it. The program bar at the top becomes active for that program but the window doesn't come out of minimize.

Seems odd. Am I doing something wrong? Or do I just need to get used to Mac and learn another way to do things?

OS X :: Can't Switch Spaces Ctrl-1 & Ctrl-2?

Feb 13, 2009

I just noticed... I can't seem to switch between spaces anymore by pressing control-1, control-2, control-3 and control-4.

Usually I had it setup that my email at work was open on 4, web up on 1, chat on 2, and 3 was my "hey, I wasn't fooling around" blank desktop. Has anyone else noticed it stopped working? (might have been when I upgraded from 10.5.5 to 10.5.6?)

I checked in the spaces config, I just saw the settings to use the arrow keys with the control, option, or apple keys.

MacBook Pro :: Switch To Another Available Wireless Network And Then Switch Back?

Dec 14, 2010

If I select from the menu bar another available wireless network (one without a password for example) and then switch back to my own wi-fi network, am I still safe?

Did the fact that I connected to another network present any risks?

I did not send any private info during that time, any risks of getting hacked?

OS X Technologies :: AppleScript To Schedule Switch Off And After 1 Minute Switch On

Apr 15, 2012

Sometimes restarting is not enough: you need to power off your Mac, wait for a little, and power it on again.It could be a script which act like the "schedule" program in system preferences: it would switch off the Mac immediately, the add 1 minute to the current time and switch it on again.

OS X :: Shell Script Won't Work

Mar 29, 2009

I have a small script that doesnt work well enough. Here is the code.

echo $1
procname=`ps -ef | grep -i $app | grep -v grep`
echo $procname
./example firefox
501 247 134 0 16:13.29 ?? 67:29.49 /Applications/ -psn_0_131104 501 4079 2386 0 0:00.00 ttys000 0:00.01 /bin/bash ./example firefox 501 4080 4079 0 0:00.00 ttys000 0:00.00 /bin/bash ./example firefox

But when I execute the the following code on the bash shell the output is different.

procname=`ps -ef | grep -i $app | grep -v grep`
echo $procname
501 247 134 0 16:41.88 ?? 68:48.90 /Applications/ -psn_0_131104

The outputs are different so what could be the problem?

OS X :: Full Pathname To Run Shell Script?

I'm trying to create a shell script or compile it into an application using automator that runs a JAR file. Everything works great except that I have to specify the full pathname in the shell script. I thought that ./ or .../ or something similar would denote that I want to run the .JAR file that is in the containing folder but I'm not having any luck.

PowerPC :: G4 IBook Shell Replacement

Nov 13, 2007

I have a chip on the side of my g4 ibook and would like to change the whole case to something other than the standard glossy white. I recall there was a company that made really colorful (red, blue, pink) Macs, but can't find anything online. Well, I found one company [URL] but they sell the machine not just a case. Anyway, I think they were painted, but by now I figure there has to be a company offering a way to customize Macs. does anyone know of one?

Mac Pro :: Want To Upgrade Shell / RAM And Video Card

Oct 11, 2009

I've got a mac pro with it's shell/casing seriously dented. I dropped it. Thankfully, the insides are working just fine. Since I can't sell this thing, I decided to upgrade it instead. It's got 3.0ghz xeon processor, quad-core. It's used for gaming. I've got 7300 GT Nvidia vid cards in there (3 of them). I don't even know what it's used for. ROFL. 2GB RAM.So what I need to know is the following:

1.Other than the dreadfully heavy heavy Mac pro's standard casing, is there another case I can replace it with? What would be compatible?
2.I want to upgrade my RAM to the max. Is it 32GB or 64GB? What is the cheapest type of RAM I can purchase without losing much performance?
3.What is the latest video card I can use with my quad-core? which is compatible?
4. Is quad-core 3.0ghz xeon, a good computer you think? or shall I just forget the upgrade and spend the money to buy a 16 core or something, while I just need the pc for gaming?

The serial # appears to be: G8635343UPZ

MacBook Pro :: MBP Battery Broke Out Of Its Shell

May 18, 2010

A couple years ago, there was a recall on MacBook Pro (C2D) batteries as a result of them expanding and bulging. As I experienced those symptoms, I called Apple and got a replacement shipped no problem. Fast forward to a year and a half or-so later, and the same thing has happened to this battery. I was wondering if anyone had any insight as to if I'd still be eligible to get a replacement for it, free of charge - since I don't have a warranty. Is the recall still valid? Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated - worse comes to worse, I'll have to buy an aftermarket battery, since I can't afford Apples at the moment.
