On my Mac, on my folder I don´t have the library folder as I should ???!!!!

on my Mac, using the Finder, on my folder, I don´t have the library folder as I should.
I think it is strange.
When I go to the time machine, the Library folder it is there, but the folder has not the same colour as the other folders (it is light grey)  !!!!

Starting in Lion Apple made the users Library folder invisible. If you want to see it in finder go to Go->Go to Folder and enter ~/Library, or hold down the option key while in the Go menu or else to make it permanently visible open a Terminal window and enter:
chflags nohidden ~/Library

  • I've installed Firefox but don't have the Firefox folder in Application Support (but I need to access this to edit my profile since Firefox won't open)

    Online troubleshooting tells me I have to go into my profile to edit something in order to get Firefox to launch. For now, it's telling me that only one copy of Firefox can be open at once. However, I don't have the Firefox folder in my Application Support, even though I've installed Firefox.
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == I reformated my computer and wanted to download Firefox ==
    == User Agent ==
    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_4; fr-fr) AppleWebKit/533.16 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0 Safari/533.16

    I get the same thing with Firefox, IE8, Opera, and Safari. It isn't a Firefox only problem.
    Are you new to that webhosting service? <br /> Have you ever uploaded web pages to that same web hosting service previously, pages that worked after an upload? <br /> Are those pages listed as ''' "public" ''' pages in your web hosts control panel?
    My suggestion is to "download" your homepage and associated files & images from your PC, up to the server, using your web hosts control panel and see how that works.
    Beyond that, I suspect that you might have missed an important setting in Dreanweaver for uploading to the web host's server. You might try asking about this issue at a Dreamweaver support forum.

  • I want to reset my mac to sell but i don't have the original cd how do i do it?

    i want to reset my mac to sell but i don't have the original cd how do i do it?

    Only manually.
    Create a new Admin user, then boot into that user.
    Then delete your user.
    Then you need to uninstall or delete any software programs that did not come stander with your computer, or that you are not selling the disk with it.

  • I Don't Have a ~/Library Folder!!!

    Just upgraded to Lion 10.7.1, trying to find my Safari prefs file, which should be at ~/Library/Preferences, but I can't locate my ~/Library folder... it's not there! I thought the Mac would have problems without it, but everything, all my apps seem to be working fine.
    I'm not blaming the Lion install for this... I don't know if the Library folder was there before...

    Finder > Go To > Hold down ALT key and viola there is an entry for the Library
    It's still there, but Apple decided to hide it from the user.

    I'm confused
    I took this to mean that your DID have an install disk.
    By holding down the "C" key, you are booting to the install CD.
    Alternatively, you can hold down the "option" key, to select which drive to which you want to boot.

  • I forgot my admin password and i don't have the cd any more what should i do?

    like i already said in the question!

    What 'softwater' said implies if you have Mountain Lion or Lion (10.8 or 10.7)
    'softwater' is absolutely correct but if you have Snow Leopard (10.6), you can follow these steps to reset the password :
    If you have lost a password to an OS X user account on your Apple Macintosh, this will help you reset it. This guide works for all apple computers including but not limited to MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Mini, Mac Pro, and MacBook Air.
    Start by having your computer shut off.Power it on, and hold Command (Apple Button) + S at the same time.
    Soon you’ll see the computer booting up with lots of lines of code scrolling by. When it comes to a rest, type the following./sbin/fsck -y/sbin/mount -uaw
    Now we’ll get a list of the users on the computer based on their home directory. Type:
    cd /Users/
    ls
    When you see the folder name (99% of the time this will usually match the user on the system, unless you’ve renamed the account afterwords) of the user you want to reset, type the passwd command. Assuming that my account name was john, I’d type the following:
    passwd john
    Substitute john for the username you wish to reset.You’ll now be prompted to enter a new password for john twice. Once to enter it, the second time to confirm.
    After this is done, type:
    reboot
    You can now login to that user account with the new password.

  • How to: Exculde the library folder located in the shared user folder.

    Ive been told this is a hard concept to grasp. I am sharing my home folder, I want to exclude the "Library" folder from being shared. How do I do this? -Thanks you

    In theory, you should be able to select the file in Finder, then use Finder -> File -> Get Info.  Then under the "Sharing & Permissions" section, change "everyone" to "No Access".
    This would prevent anyone except yourself from accessing your HOME -> Library folder tree.  Of course if you mount your home volume using your username and password, then you will be able to access Library.

  • Can I add my existing, licensed apps to my list of 'Purchases' on the Mac App Store so I don't have to buy them twice?

    Hello,
    I was wondering if I could add my existing, licensed apps to the list of app 'Purchases' that I have on the Mac App Store.
    The reason for this is that I recently suffered the inevitable hard disk failure and I had to rebuild my MacBook Pro from scratch (with the help of Time Machine and Migration Assistant, etc.). As usual, I hadn't really maintained my MBP for quite a while and things sort of got away from me, in terms of data, apps, preferences, permissions, users (my personal account, my wife's account, my old work account...), etc.
    So I wanted to rebuild my MBP on a clean slate. I like having the ability to quickly download and install just the right apps that I "really" need from MAS safe in the knowledge that:
    they are there (assuming they're still available through MAS) with a full description of what they do and when I bought them, etc.
    they are going to be in the most up-to-date version,
    I'll be able to download and install them cleanly with no corruption from years of multiple user preference changes and permissions, etc.
    that they will be managed and maintained (updated) through the same mechanism,
    so much more.
    The benefits of having apps from MAS are easy to see when compared to going through my downloads folder and emails looking for the latest installers, working out what they're for in the first place, finding the license key in some forgotten e-mail, etc.
    I am aware that I can build a clean machine and then restore just the right apps in their most up-to-date version as I had them on my backups.  The one thing to say about that is that the apps may have been used and abused once too many times and their preferences, etc. may not be in the most desirable form. It's just not as elegant as the MAS solution.
    I realise that not all apps, app versions, or app vendors, are available through MAS. But I still have a fair few apps currently available on MAS that were bought prior to the existence of MAS, prior to them becoming available on MAS, or were bought directly for some other reason (by mistake).
    So I wondered if there was any way I could convert my legitimate licenses from simply a direct purchase to one through MAS and have those apps listed under my 'Purchases' list. It would reduce the amount of work I'd have to do, not only to rebuild my machine but also to maintain it.
    I cannot find any reference or way of having this work the way I would like it to. But I was hoping that some Apple guru would enlighten me.
    I have thought about the possible mechanisms something like this would need to work and I must admit I see some not insurmountable issues (not as much technical as legal or possibly logistical). I realise that MAS is a service in its own right and as such has its own Terms, Conditions and Licensing that may not be compatible with the licenses that I already have. I also realise that when I purchase an app from MAS that I'm paying for the entire service including updates and use on multiple machines that I may own, etc. Obviously I do not want to pay the full purchase cost again for the same app twice, but I am willing to pay a small conversion/upgrade fee to have it managed as part of my 'Purchases' on MAS.  Think of it in the same terms as iTunes works.  I can purchase music, etc. but I can also add my own CD collection and have it managed by iTunes and store it in the cloud should anything go wrong with my local machine, etc.
    So if this is currently not possible, then for the Apple MAS product managers out there, consider this as a suggestion/feedback.  I'd be happy to discuss my thoughts in more detail about not only how to achieve this for now but also for the future when you may add existing applications to MAS that people may have previously bought direct and would like to have managed through MAS going forward. The benefits to the users are hopefully clear, but from Apple's perspective I hope that you can see the advantages too, commercially, etc.
    PS: I apologise for the wordiness of my query and overuse of 'etc.', etc.

    Can I add my existing, licensed apps to my list of 'Purchases' on the Mac App Store so I don't have to buy them twice?
    No. Only apps purchased from the App Store can be re downloaded for free including updates.

    As posted previously:
    Reinstall OS X without erasing the drive
    Do the following:
    1. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your Snow Leopard Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    2. If the drive is OK then quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed with reinstalling OS X.  Note that the Snow Leopard installer will not erase your drive or disturb your files.  After installing a fresh copy of OS X the installer will move your Home folder, third-party applications, support items, and network preferences into the newly installed system.
    If installing Leopard the process is similar in some respects.  If you wish to begin anew then after selecting the target disk click on the Options button and select the Erase and Install option then click on the OK button.  To install over an existing system do the following:
    How to Perform an Archive and Install
    An Archive and Install will NOT erase your hard drive, but you must have sufficient free space for a second OS X installation which could be from 3-9 GBs depending upon the version of OS X and selected installation options. The free space requirement is over and above normal free space requirements which should be at least 6-10 GBs. Read all the linked references carefully before proceeding.
    1. Be sure to use Disk Utility first to repair the disk before performing the Archive and Install.
    Repairing the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your OS X Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Installer menu (Utilities menu for Tiger, Leopard or Snow Leopard.) After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list. In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive. If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer. Now restart normally.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    2. Do not proceed with an Archive and Install if DU reports errors it cannot fix. In that case use Disk Warrior and/or TechTool Pro to repair the hard drive. If neither can repair the drive, then you will have to erase the drive and reinstall from scratch.
    3. Boot from your OS X Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When you reach the screen to select a destination drive click once on the destination drive then click on the Option button. Select the Archive and Install option. You have an option to preserve users and network preferences. Only select this option if you are sure you have no corrupted files in your user accounts. Otherwise leave this option unchecked. Click on the OK button and continue with the OS X Installation.
    4. Upon completion of the Archive and Install you will have a Previous System Folder in the root directory. You should retain the PSF until you are sure you do not need to manually transfer any items from the PSF to your newly installed system.
    5. After moving any items you want to keep from the PSF you should delete it. You can back it up if you prefer, but you must delete it from the hard drive.
    6. You can now download a Combo Updater directly from Apple's download site to update your new system to the desired version as well as install any security or other updates. You can also do this using Software Update.

  • I don't have the source clips on my mac, can I make it work anyway?

    I posted a thread yesterday, but as I put it in the wrong forum and the problem is another, I made a new one.
    So here is the first post, https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3954346
    I have the clips in Imovie, but I can't play them as "the source clips are missing". I searched a little bit and saw that some people have had the same problem, but the difference is that I actually don't have the source clips on my mac anymore. Is there any way to fix this, or can't you play the movies without them?
    Thanks!

    Hi
    As Karsten writes - NO
    This is due to that You are using a NON-destructive Video editor. Meaning the raw-material goes into one bin (folder) and then it's not touched any more.
    Your Project is a text document referring to the raw material and what of it and how it's to be played - This is Your movie. So there are no Movie Project - until it is rendered and saved as such.
    This is also why - the Event's folder is enormous and Project folder very tiny - there is no movie here - just a conductor sheet on howto play Your Event folder as a Movie.
    Parallel - there are no Symphony in a note-book either - just how it's supposed to be played.
    Yours Bengt W

  • How do I add output module to Bridge if I don't have an extension folder?

    I tried adding the output module to Bridge (why didn't it come with this???) but it says to put a folder in the Bridge Extensions folder.  I don't seem to have one.  What to do now???

    There are two different Libraries on the Mac
    The wrong one is located in users>Library (Hidden hold option)>Application Support>Adobe> No Bridge Extensions folder
    The Correct one is Located here: Macintosh HD > Library (Not Hidden) > Adobe > Bridge CC Extensions > Workspaces
    Two very big differences in folder location and the instructions found here: Install Adobe Output Module Only show the Library folder not which one it is. Problem solved.
