Just ’cause I’m bored.
The missing tool in Mac OS X is most likely wget. Here’s a (universal) port.
Read the readme for installation howto. 🙂
I recently started to use Namely but having its icon in my dock was quite annoying (like to keep my dock clean).
Namely is an app that let’s you launch any application by typing in a few letters of that program’s name. Just type in a key combination ([Apple]+E here), and Namely’s window pop ups.
After a bit of Googling I found that it was possible to hide icons from the dock.
First of all, configure Namely, make sure it pop ups if you type in your key combo. If you don’t do that now, you’ll have problems to configure it later.
Once that’s done, quit Namely.
Then go to the Namely.app folder (using Terminal), and add these 2 lines
between <dict> and </dict>
This is what it should look like:
(Nano is the editor I use, but you can also use vi or vim too, depending what’s installed + you might have Namely installed in a different directory)
Nazgul:~ yeri$ cd /Applications/Utilities/Namely.app/ Nazgul:Namely.app yeri$ nano -w Contents/Info.plist
This is how my Info.plist looks like:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28
< ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"> < !DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key> <string>English</string> <key>CFBundleExecutable</key> <string>Namely</string> <key>CFBundleIconFile</key> <string>Namely</string> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.asagoo.namely</string> <key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key> <string>6.0</string> <key>CFBundlePackageType</key> <string>APPL</string> <key>CFBundleSignature</key> <string>????</string> <key>CFBundleVersion</key> <string>2.5.1</string> <key>NSMainNibFile</key> <string>MainMenu</string> <key>NSPrincipalClass</key> <string>NamelyApplication</string> <key>LSUIElement</key> <string>1</string> </dict> </plist>
Notice line 25 & 26.
And that should be it — double click Namely to start it up, hit your keyboard shortcut, and it should pop up!
No icon in my dock. 🙂
I recently came upon this post; enjoy it. 😉
Makes life just that bit easier!
When playing with KisMAC, I noticed something weird in my /var/log/system.log;
1 2 3 4
$date com.apple.launchd (tuncfgd$pid) posix_spawnp("/usr/sbin/tuncfg", ...): No such file or directory $date com.apple.launchd (tuncfgd$pid) Exited with exit code: 1 $date com.apple.launchd (tuncfgd) Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds
After a bit of Googling, it seemed to be a known problem. So I decided to uninstall Hamachi & the tun/tap drivers.
1 2 3 4 5 6
sudo rm -r /usr/bin/hamachi sudo rm -r /usr/bin/hamachi-init sudo rm -r /usr/sbin/tuncfg sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tuncfgd.plist sudo rm -r /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tuncfgd.plist sudo rm -r /Applications/HamachiX
This should solve the restarting problem. You might want to reboot to be sure.
When uninstalling the drivers, HamachiX will be gone; there will be no way to use it. You can decide to ignore the spawning-processes, and keep using Hamachi as-is, but the spawning processes might slow down your computer. But HamachiX should work (although it often crashed here).
I tried reinstalling the tun/tap drivers, but the same happens. I guess I’ll have to wait for a fix. 🙁
