Change File Permissions using Terminal in Mac OS X - - 6 views

    Changing file permissions on the Mac is something you need to know how to do if you want to create your own non-home directory only shares on the Mac. Leopard implements folder sharing similarly to the way SharePoints does. I find myself needing to change permissions regularly because certain programs like to change file permissions on their own. The Terminal is generally better for changing permissions because it is much faster and also because you have more control. Sometimes you may need to do this is the file permissions get messed up in Leopard's File Sharing under System Preferences.

  • free up some system memory by terminating the Dashboard with two quick Terminal commands. First, set its default to Off by executing defaults write mcx-disabled -boolean YES. Second, kill and restart the Dashboard and Dock with this command: killall Dock.
  • Textutil can convert between Word, rich-text, and plain-text formats--and it can combine multiple documents, change fonts, and adjust font size while doing it

    If there's a more neglected or misunderstood Mac utility than the Terminal, OS X's built-in command-line app, we've yet to find it. In an age where Apple's $200 smart phone offers the most intuitive graphical user interface the world has ever seen, turning to a text-only command-line window can seem stubbornly retro, reminding us of audiophiles who vociferously insist that vinyl records sound better than music CDs. But there are plenty of reasons for using the command line beyond mere nostalgia: speed, flexibility, and familiarity with OS fundamentals, to name a few. We've collected 25 Terminal-based solutions for common desktop issues, because knowing these tricks is an invaluable addition to any Mac user's toolbox. And while there is no reason to abandon the Finder, think of mastering the Terminal as learning to drive a car with a manual transmission-once you can drive a stick, you can drive anything.

Install a disk image System Preferences panel | Mac OS X Hints | Macworld - 0 views

    OS X has a number of options for handling disk images-settings for such things as automatically opening them, moving Internet-enabled images to the trash after opening, verifying checksums, and more. You control all of these options (and a few more) in Disk Utility's preferences panel. If you change these settings often, though, you may tire of launching Disk Utility and opening its preferences panel. As an alternative-and with a side bonus of gaining one additional option-you can install a hidden System Preferences panel to make accessing these options a bit easier. There are two ways to install this panel; one requires Terminal, and the other uses just the Finder. If Apple were to update the panel at some point, the Finder method wouldn't reflect those updates, while the Terminal method always insures you're seeing the latest version of the panel.

  • BSD Subsystem 2.x SU Replacement

      I prefer Big Boss' Terminal more than the one you get from the repo, but the BSD System 2.x SU Replacement is very useful.
