OS X :: How To Change Ownership Of All Files And Folders Under Another User?

Mar 8, 2010

Not too long ago I went through a process of changing my user in OS X to another name. It seemed to go smoothly enough. However many of my old applications are owned by an "_unknown" now. This is fine and dandy, except that every time I go to rename or move something in these places, it either has to authenticate or just tells me I'm not allowed.

What would be a simple, effective way to change ownership on all files/folders tied to "_unknown" to my current user?

Software :: External Hard Drive - Change "Ownership & Permissions"

Jun 22, 2008

I was just playing around with my external hard-drive - the "Ownership & Permissions" section of it's Info - and accidently changed it from "You may Read & Write" to "You have No Access" and while trying to change it back it somehow wouldn't work and then as I tried to open folders inside it, everything was missing inside the folders (presumedly not deleted since there was still 100GB of space used). So I restarted my computer as well as the hard-drive and now it won't even show up on the desktop. The odd thing is I still have it as an icon on my dock and when I click on it to open it, it just says "The application "(null)" cannot be launched. -5000". If you need to know, I have an iMac Version 10.4.11. Does anyone know what is wrong and what I should do to get it all back to normal?

IMac PPC :: G4 PPC Black Screen On Startup?

Mar 19, 2012

I have been limping along for quite some time with a recurring problem with my PPC Flat Panel iMac G4.Sometimes when starting up I would get a black screen. The unit chimes at startup but the screen would stay black.I found that I was able to fix (temporary) the problem by removing the bottom plate and pushing the reset button under the base.(After shutting down and unplugging the unit.) after the startup chime, the screen turned gray with a folder icon in the center with a blinking question mark.After shutting down and restarting, this happened again 3 times.On the 4th shutdown/startup it went back to the black screen.Repeated shutdown/restarts have no effect.Shutting down, unplugging the unit and pushing the reset button is also having no effect.I hear the startup chime every time. Black screen every time as well now.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

IMac PPC :: Sbcglobal.net Email Pop-up Box Keeps Coming Up The POP Server "pop.att.yahoo.com" Rejecting Password?

Mar 21, 2012

I am having trouble with our sbcglobal.net email account. A pop-up box keeps coming up: the POP server "pop.att.yahoo.com" rejected the password for user ...@sbcglobal.net. I've reset the password and it's still not working. SBC/ATT says it's an Apple issue, not their issue... that Apple mail is not recognizing the account or something like that. I've also tried adjusting to "recieve mail manually" instead of automatically (on all of our apple products) - still not working. Continual pop-up box rejecting password, no mail coming in to that account either.

IMac PPC :: Imac G3 Installation Of Tiger Cd Won't Boot?

May 14, 2012

I have the CD version of tiger and am trying to install it to a recently purchased iMac G3. The Installer installs disc 1, resets, but doesn't boot up to install disc 2, it simply asks again to install disc 1. The Mac for some reason will not boot from the installed software and therefore I cannot complete installation.
