OS X :: Any Possibility To Hide (VAR / TMP And ETC) Alias Folders?

Jan 5, 2007

I restored one disk onto another disk using Disk Utility and now I have three aliases on my hard drive called "var", "tmp" and "etc". I know what you're thinking... those are part of the Unix background in Mac OS X and I am smart enough to know that I cannot delete them, so my question is. How the heck can I hide them. I really don't like seeing them there. Other than that, my new drive is running fine.

OS X :: How To Hide Folders

Feb 22, 2009

I'm pretty anal about the cleanliness of my documents folder, so I cannot stand having a folder called Adobe or Microsoft User Data in my docs folder.

I want to be able to hide those folders without adding a . before them (because then the apps won't be able to find the folders). Is there any way to do this? I know you can also change the permissions, but again, then the apps cant use the folders.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Hide Home Folders From WebDAV On Server?

Apr 3, 2012

I have set up Lion Server and so far it is doing everything that I want it to do. I have sucessfully connected to the Lion server from my iPad using webDAV. I can see the sharepoints that I have created just fine. What I want to do is hide home folders when connecting to Lion from the iPad. I know I can skip seeing the home folders by typing in the sharepoint name directly but I want users to access several different sharepoints when they hit the server.

OS X Mountain Lion :: Can't Hide Folders And Files That Are Usually Hidden

Sep 8, 2014

This past weekend I transferred my OS and apps to a newly installed SSD drive.

During the process I had to move some files around in order to get The OS and Apps on the SSD.

I used a technique that utilizes the Terminal and the chflags command.

My issue is now I can not hide the files and folders that are usually hidden.

I can't remember the exact method I used to unhide hidden folders and files. I can't even find a reference to it in my web browsers history.I have searched on the web for solutions along these lines: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -boolean FALSE ; killall Finderchflags hidden sudo chflags hidden 

But none of these approaches have worked. I have downloaded Onyx, TinkerTool and Show Hide Invisible Files.

I have used them as best I understand to hide the normally hidden files and folders, but nothing has worked.

Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), 2008

OS X :: How To Remove Alias (arrow) Symbol For Alias Icons

Jul 23, 2008

I want to create stacks for my Applications and put them in the dock by type. Utilities, Music & Video, iLife, etc. I think what I will do is make aliases for all the applications and put them in subfolders separate from the Applications folder, so then I have these 3-6 subfolders in my dock as stacks that I can display in Grid or Fan mode. And I don't have to see all my applications in one jumbled Grid and search for them.

Yes, I know Spotlight or QuickSilver could access them differently.

My question is, when I have created this duplicate system with the aliases to the apps, how do I remove the Alias (arrow) portion of the icon so that they look just like the actual icon down in the stack (or in my subfolders, etc)?

MacBook Pro :: Any Possibility To Disable Trackpad?

Oct 14, 2010

Is there any way to disable the trackpad on a Macbook Pro? I ask because my previous Compaq laptop had a physical button to turn off the trackpad. This was actually very useful in preventing inadvertent actions, with certain programs. Maybe it's not that big of a deal for most people, but after having a computer that was able to do this, it just seems like a nice feature to have.

MacBook Pro :: External Graphics Cards A Possibility With USB 3?

Oct 1, 2010

Several manufacturers have tried to produce external graphics card boxes to connect to your laptop. Most have given up, but it seems the only real barrier is bandwidth.

MSI have this: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Gra...nal,10527.html

using the Expresscard 34 (max 2.5Gpbs) and say they will switch to USB 3 (4.8Gbps) when it goes mainstream.

Do you think 4.8Gbps is enough to make connecting high end external graphics cards to your laptop a possibility?

Mac Pro :: Possibility Of Replacing Processors/Harpertown To Nehalem?

Nov 20, 2008

I remembered that at one point Mac Pro's CPU was a direct successor to its previous model, as in you can buy one of the successor chip and replace the older one, since the MLB could support it.

Is this the case with Harpertown to Nehalem? Can you just go on Newegg and get 2 Nehalem, and throw them in to the current Mac Pro?

OS X :: Keychains Automatically Fills In Information - Any Possibility?

Feb 18, 2009

I log into the Blackboard Academic Suite daily (online) to check my class announcements and grades. Every time I log in, I have to enter my username and password. This gets pretty old. Is it possible to have a keychain automatically fill in this information for me? Because that is what I do with all my other login sites. It hasn't ever asked if I would like my password and username to be saved, and I'm sure it's for security. I've tried creating a new keychain and putting in the information, but still no success.
