Simple Question-Deleting Finder Prefs

I have not been able to shut my macbook down properly. I keep getting the message that "Logout has timed out because Application 'Finder' failed to quit." Someone on the discussion boards suggested deleting the finder prefs and listed:
"Your Account/library/preferences/com.apple.finder.plist"
"Your Account/library/preferences/com.sidebarlists.plist"
Following these changes, it was suggested to relaunch the Finder through Force Quit window ...
an to then try logging out ...
My question is how to delete the Finder preferences listed above. I have tried and can not figure it out. Sorry for the simple question. Appreciate the help. Thanks.

Open a Finder window. Under PLACES in the sidebar, there should be a "home" icon with your user name. Click in that. That's "Your Account" from your post.
Now find the folder called "Library." Double-click on it.
Now find "Preferences." Double-click on it.
Now find the file called "com.apple.finder.plist" and drag it to the Trash. Do the same with the other file. Empty the Trash.
Then go to the Apple menu and select Force Quit... Select Finder and click on Relaunch button.

  • Image count (simple question, cant find the option)

    Hello,
    it is simple, but ain't easy to find in preferences:
    I used to have the number of images (pictures) for every folder
    under Projects in the left pane
    Now they disappeared and I can't find the option to get them back
    Some can help me ?
    Thanks

    It is in the Preferences>Appearance. Near the bottom is a checkbox to Show number of versions for projects and albums.
    I agree about finding it in any index, couldn't come up with the right word.

  • Re: add-ons. Just a simple question I couldn't find an answer to. Is the term "uninstall" equivalent to "remove the software from the computer"?

    I downloaded a You Tube downloader, and expected an icon to come up when You Tube was playing, according to a friend's advice.
    Since this didn't happen I assumed the download didn't work, or was an old version that doesn't work anymore. I wanted to just get rid of it and try another downloader.
    I went to Tools--> Add-ons--> and clicked on the downloaded software and saw the 2 options [Disable] and [Uninstall]. The terminology is unclear, as I've always thought once software resides on your computer you can install it or uninstall it without erasing it from the computer.
    A simple question that seems obvious except to someone who wants to be very precise and sure. Basically "does [Uninstall] mean erase from the computer"?
    Thanks

    With Firefox extensions (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) you have two possibilities. You can disable an extension if you do not want to use it now, but want to keep it. Or you can uninstall an extension and remove it from the computer. Note that uninstalling an extension still leaves prefs in about:config (prefs.js) and possibly files in the profile folder that will be reused in case you decide to reinstall an extension at a later time.

  • HT4753 I have a very simple question: how do I view where Lion has autosaved my current version to (without the convoluted route of using finder)? In days gone by i'd simply use the save as function to see where it was being saved.

    I have a very simple question: how do I view where Lion has autosaved my current version to (without the convoluted route of using finder)? In days gone by i'd simply use the save as function to see where it was being saved.

    It's actually even easier than using Save As to see the full path to the currently open document. Just do a "Secondary click" on the document title in its window's title bar.
    Like you, I relied upon Save As my whole life to check a file's location and considered it a must-have capability. Turns out it's even faster to use the single-click method to reveal the full path to the open document. It displays the entire path to the current document starting from the level of your Mac, and works for files stored on drives as well as iCloud.
    If you're not sure how to do a secondary click, go into System Preferences, select Trackpad, Point & Click to find the current preference for secondary click on your Mac. If you happen to have a mouse with more than one button, it's probably the right button. As a trackpad user, I check the box to "Click or tap with two fingers," so a simple two finger tap on the title of an open document reveals its full path. This feature actually has been around for a very long time.
    Note that this is not the same thing as the Autosave and Versions menu, which is exposed using a little drop down triangle to the right of the title. There is no visual clue for the presence of this feature - you just have to know it's there, probably because this feature goes all the way back to pre-OS X days.

  • Simple question - How to find date

    Hi Experts,
    I have a simple question on date. Suppose today is Jan 4, 2010. I have to find out Jan 1, 2007 using Java code.
    I have used following code. This code will work for 2010 and 2011 properly. However it won't work properly after Feb 28, 2012. Please see "dayInMillis*1096 " portion of code. Here 365365366 = 1096.
    How I can avoid this hard coding. Do we have any simple way to get Jan 1, 2007 even without using following code.
         Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
         int lastDate = calendar.getActualMaximum(Calendar.DATE);
         int firstDate = calendar.getActualMinimum(Calendar.DATE);
         int todayDate = calendar.get(Calendar.DATE);
         int dayofyear = calendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_YEAR);
         java.sql.Date currentdate = new java.sql.Date(System.currentTimeMillis());
         long dayInMillis = 1000 * 60 * 60 *24; //1 day
         wdContext.currentContextElement().setFromDate(new Date(System.currentTimeMillis() - dayInMillis*1096 - ((dayofyear-1)*dayInMillis)));
    Please help.
    Regards,
    Gary

    Hi Gary,
    I am not pretty much clear with your question, whatever i have understood, i have found a way to get the previous date given the current date.
    Below is the code for the same.
                           Calendar now = Calendar.getInstance();//Jan 4, 2010
           String nowDateStr = DateFormat.getDateInstance().format(now.getTime());
           System.out.println("date now : " +nowDateStr);
           now.add(Calendar.YEAR, -3);//2007
           now.add(Calendar.DATE, -3);//1st
           now.add(Calendar.MONTH, 0);//No change in month, Jan.
           String changedDateStr = DateFormat.getDateInstance().format(now.getTime());
           System.out.println("date changed : " +changedDateStr);

  • IPhoto Question - Deleting files in Computer trash can

    I have several JPG files listed in the contents of my trash on my computer's desktop (not in the iPhoto trash) that I would like to eliminate. I need to empty the contents of my computer's trash for general maintenance, but am paranoid about deleting photos. These files also reside in my iPhoto library. (When I attempt to transfer them out of the trash and back into iPhoto a duplicate file is created.) If I select "empty trash" under the Finder drop down menu, will this delete these photo files in iPhoto or just the copy that resides in the trash? In other words, is the iPhoto trash the one and only way to delete photos from your iPhoto library? Or will emptying the computer's trash do this as well?
    M
    P.S. I know this is probably a simple question, but switching from a PC to a MAC (love the MAC) has left me struggling at times to "convert" my prior computer skills. Thanks for your help!

    If you are running a managed library - the default - with the preference to "copy imported items to the iPhoto Library" checked then the finder trash is totally separate from the iPhoto trash and emptying it can not affect your photos in iPhoto
    If you want to see drag the photos from the trash to a desktop folder and empty the trash - then put one back in the trash- check it in iPhoto and empty the trash and check it in iPhoto again - it will still be there - that should make you feel safer about trashing the rest of them

  • Starting out with a Cintiq in Adobe Flash - A series of frustratingly unfindable simple questions!

    I'm completely new to the Flash IDE, but I have used my Cintiq 13HD with Photoshop in the past. Despite the tablet working well and drawing correctly, so far Flash feels very weird and almost unusable. I've spent hours looking online for answers to these simple questions, and I've found nothing. Please help answer any if you can!
    1. Eraser brush size: I have the wacom pen set to brush, and the eraser set to eraser (fairly standard). I can adjust the pen's brush size in the toolbar, but the eraser is stuck at the smallest size! I have set the eraser tool to the max brush size, and when the pen is set to the eraser tool directly it is larger. How do I set the other side of the wacom pen to a larger brush size? And aren't there any keyboard shortcuts to increase/decrease brush size in Flash? (like [ and ] in Photoshop)
    2. Brush zoom: The brush size changes when you zoom. People online say the brush size is constant, but this is just wrong. When you zoom to 200%, the brush should be twice as big as it is in 100% zoom. Is there any way to make Flash have this (normal) behavior?
    3. Timeline wrapping: Can you make the "step forward one frame" and "step backward one frame" keys (comma and period) wrap the entire timeline, so stepping forward on the last frame goes to frame 1, and stepping backward on frame 1 goes to the last frame? This is crucial for me to animate loops well, and I can't find anything about it online or in preferences. Shift+comma and shift+period are okay workarounds, but they are not ideal, because I have comma and period mapped to buttons on the Cintiq. I need them to wrap!
    4. Numerical Brush Thickness: Is there any way to specify a brush thickness with a number? Do I have to use the pen tool to get stroke thickness properties? At the very least, can I use a keyboard shortcut to specify size, instead of clicking on toolbars?
    Honestly, I'm at the end of my rope here. I'm almost ready to drop Flash entirely and do this in Illustrator, then animate in Flash when I have everything drawn properly. Why is everything so different, and why can't I find any of these simple questions online?

    The long and short of it is no you can't do most of the things you're looking to do as far as the brush is concerned. Flash has ALWAYS increased the brush size as you zoom in and decreased it when it's zoomed out. Why? No clue but it's always been so.  You CAN increase the brush size by number though using the Properties box. The eraser is weird in Flash. so much so that I use the Lasso tool and select what I don't want and delete it. Since you're used to Illustrator you might not realize that selecting areas of a brush stroke will NOT select the entire stroke like in Illustrator. you can select only parts. You can also sort of allow for what you're calling timeline wrapping by installing a Command and mapping it to a custom key command. Just make sure there's a key frame at the end of the cycle.
    Dropbox - Flash_Select_Next_and_Previous_Keyframes.zip
    Also this might do sort of what you want too:
    http://www.toonmonkey.com/frameJumper.fla
    Finally, Flash is no different than it has ever been and you have to take into consideration that while Illustrator was developed by Adobe, Flash was developed by Macromedia and was then acquired by Adobe years later so you' can't really expect it to work the same. Personally I HATE Illustrator's interface and hate the way it works so I'd hate it if Flash worked like Illustrator!
    Anyway, I hope this helps.

  • Simple question. Since apple has extinguished iDVD Are there any other Software programs that can produce the end product iDVD did?

    There are many a thousands of people who are producingvideos on completed DVDs. As an amateur videographer using iMovie first nowusing Final Cut pro to produce completed ready to distribute DVDs, I find ithard to believe at the meeting you mentioned anyone with common sense wouldhave explained the scenario above. On an amateur level so many folks have beencreating videos of Weddings, Home Movies, and many different Special Events. Onin particular are sports events. I shoot a sports event like Mix Martial ArtsEvents utilizing several video cameras. Then editing with Final cut Pro andsometimes iMovie. All of my completed videos that have been edited in either ofthese two programs are shared (like hand in glove) with iDVD. Short of steppinginto the commercial world Apple has deleted many people from producing a semiprofessional looking product.
    I do not know if the can be answered here in the format buthere it goes!!

    Thank you Klaus 1
    I have 4 latest Macs All have iDVD. The question was not where to get iDVD.
    The question for anyone who knows is: Since apple has extinguished iDVD Are there any other Software programs that can produce the end product iDVD did?
    I appreciate your input but it realy does not answer the question. iDVD will soon not be able to work with newer versions of Macs as it has been left behind by Apple!
    Once again:
    It doesn't seem there are any programs that takes off from where iDVD left off.

    Imovie cannot do this. More importantly imovie cannot save the project to Video_TS folders like iDVD did.

  • Simple question:  I want to use iCloud as a back up disk for my documents folder.  How can I do this?  If I cannot do this, why am I paying for access to "the cloud?"

    Simple question:  I want to use iCloud as a back up disk for my documents folder.  How can I do this?  If I cannot do this, why am I paying for access to "the cloud?"

    iCloud does not provide general file storage or backup, so you cannot back up your Documents folder using it. You will need to find a third-party alternative - this page examines some options (some are free):

    iCloud at basic level, with 5GB is storage, is free: you only pay anything if you want to increase the storage space.

  • Load Balancing Directory Servers with Access Manager - Simple questions

    Hi.
    We are in the process of configuring 2 Access Manager instances (servers) accessing the same logical LDAP repository (comprising physically of two Directory Servers working together with Multi-Master Replication configured and tested) For doing this, we are following guide number 819-6258.
    The guide uses BigIP load balancer for load balancing the directory servers. However, we intend to use Directory Proxy Server. Since we faced some (unresolved) issues last time that we used DPS, there are some simple questions that I would be very grateful to have answers to:
    1. The guide, in section 3.2.10 (To configure Access Manager 1 with the Directory Server load balancer), talks about making changes at 4 places, and replacing the existing entry (hostname and port) with the load balancer's hostname and port (assuming that the load balancer has already been configured). It says that changes need not be made on Access Manager 2 since the LDAPs are in replication, and hence changes will be replicated at all places. However, the guide also states that changes have to be made in two files, namely AMConfig.properties, and the serverconfig.xml file. But these changes will not be reflected on Access Manager 2, since these files are local on each machine.
    Question 1. Do changes have to be made in AMConfig.properties and serverconfig.xml files on the other machine hosting Access Manager 2?
    Question 2: What is the purpose of putting these values here? Specifically, what is achieved by specifying the Directory server host and port in AMConfig.properties, as well as in serverconfig.xml?
    Question 3. In the HTTP console, there is the option of specifying multiple primary LDAP servers, as well as multiple secondary LDAP servers. What is the purpose of these? Are secondary servers attempted when none of the list in the primary list are accessible? Also, if there are multiple entries in the primary server list, are they accessed in a round robin fashion (hereby providing rudimentary load balancing), or are other servers accessed only when the one mentioned first is not reachable etc.?
    2. Since I do not have a load balancer setup yet, I tried the following deviation to the above, which, according to me, should have worked. If viewed in the HTTP console, LDAP / Membership / MSISDN and Policy configuration all pointed to the DS on host 1. When I changed all these to point to the directory server on host 2 (and made AMConfig.properties and serverconfig.xml on host 1 point to DS of host 2 as well), things should have worked fine, but apparently Access manager 1 could not be started. Error from Webserver:
    [14/Aug/2006:04:30:36] info (13937): WEB0100: Loading web module in virtual server [https-machine_1_FQDN] at [search]

    [14/Aug/2006:04:31:48] warning (13937): CORE3283: stderr: ... 2 more
    In effect, AM on 1 did not start. On rolling back the changes, things again worked like previously.
    Will be really grateful for any help / insight / experience on dealing with the above.
    Thanks!

    Update to the above, incase anyone is reading:
    We setup a similar setup in Windows, and it worked. Here is a detailed account of what was done:
    1. Host 1: Start installer, install automatically, chose Directory server, Directory Administration server, Directory Proxy server, Web server, Access Manager.
    All installed, and worked fine. (AMConfig.properties, serverconfig.xml, and the info in LDAP service, all pointed to HOST1:389)
    2. Host 2: Start installer, install automatically, chose Directory server, Directory Administration server, Directory Proxy server, Web server, Access Manager.
    All installed, and worked fine. (AMConfig.properties, serverconfig.xml, and the info in LDAP service, all pointed to HOST2:389)
    3. Host 1: Started replication. Set to Master
    4. Host 2: Started replication. Set to Master
    5. Host 1: Setup replication agreement to Host 2
    6. Host 2: Setup replication agreement to Host 1
    7. Initiated the remote replica from Host 1 ----> Host 2
    Note that since default installation uses abc.....xyz as the encryption key, setting this to same was not an issue.
    9. Started webserver for Host 1 and logged into AM as amadmin.
    10. Added Host 2 FQDN in DNS Aliases / Realms
    11. Added http://HOST2_FQDN:80 in the Platform server (instance) list.
    12. Started Host 2 webserver. Logged in AM on Host 2, things worked fine.
    At this stage, note the following:
    a) Host 1:
    AMConfig.properties file has
    com.iplanet.am.directory.host=host1_FQDN
    and
    com.iplanet.am.directory.port=389
    serverconfig.xml has:
    <Server name="Server1" host="host1_FQDN" port="389" type="SIMPLE" />
    b) Host 2:
    AMConfig.properties file has
    com.iplanet.am.directory.host=host2_FQDN
    and
    com.iplanet.am.directory.port=389
    serverconfig.xml has:
    <Server name="Server1" host="host2_FQDN" port="389" type="SIMPLE" />
    c) If one logs into AM, and checks LDAP servers for LDAP / Policy Configuration / Membership etc services, they all contain Host2_FQDN:389 (which makes sense, since replica 2 was initialized from 1)
    Returning back to the configuations:
    13. On Host 1, login into the Admin server console of the Directory server. Navigate to the DPS, and confgure the following:
    a) Network Group
    b) LDAP servers
    c) Load Balancing
    d) Change Group
    e) Action on-bind
    f) Allow all actions (permit modification / deletion etc.).
    g) any other configuations required - Am willing to give detailed steps if someone needs them to help me / themselves! :)
    So now, we have DPS configured and running on Host1:489, and distributing load to DS1 and DS2 on a 50:50 basis.
    14. Now, log into AM on Host 1, and instead of Host1_fqdn:389 (for DS) in the following places, specify Host1_fqdn:489 (for the DPS)--
    LDAP Authentication
    MSISDN server
    Membership Service
    Policy configuation.
    Verified that this propagated to the Policy Configuration service and the LDAP authentication service that are already registered with the default organization.
    15. Log out of AM. Following the documentation, modify directory.host and directory.port in AMConfig.properties to point to Host 1_FQDN and 489 respectively. Make this change in AMConfig.properties of both Host 1 as well as 2.
    16. Edit serverconfig.xml on both hosts, and instead of they pointing to their local directory servers, point both to host1_FQDN:489
    17. When you start the webserver, it will refuse to start. Will spew errors such as:

    Success!
    The server https-host1_FQDN has started up.
    The server infact, didn't start up (nothing even listening on 58080).
    However, if AMConfig.properties is left as it originally was, and only serverconfig.xml files were changed as mentioned above, web servers started fine, and things worked all okay. (Alright, except for some glitches when viewed in /amconsole. If /amserver/console is accessed, all is good. Can this mean that all is still not well? I am not sure).
    So far so good. Now comes the sad part. When the same is done on Solaris 9, things dont work. You continue to get the above error, OR the following error, and the web server will refuse to start:
    Differences in Solaris and Windows are as follows:
    1. Windows hosts have 1 IP and hostname. Solaris hosts have 3 IPs and hostnames (for DS, DPS, and webserver).
    No other difference from an architectural perspective.
    Any help / insight on why the above is not working (and why the hell does the documentation seem so sketchy / insecure / incorrect).
    Thanks a bunch!

  • Compilations are breaking my heart-simple question...

    OK folks, this is a simple question - so why can't i find a clear answer anywhere? I am running Itunes 8, Win XP, been running Itunes for my music for about 4 years.
    Current setup 3 users running Itunes on same pC.
    My problem is when I browse my lbrary each song in my compilations are showing upas different albums e.g. "O Brother where art thou" has 14 different "albums" as do some home-made compilations I have been given.
    "group compilations when browsing is selected" but obviously isn;t working
    It's obviously simple but not to me...help
    Thanks
    Message was edited by: munstershug

    You mention enabling the iTunes option to *Group compilations when browsing*, but have you also set the *Part of a Compilation* flag to Yes for each track of your compilations? See my recent post on Grouping Tracks Into Albums, in particular the topic One album, too many covers.

  • Jbutton to open a htm file in browser - simple question

    not sure where to look for this, but its a simple question
    I just want to get a jbutton (from a jFrame)to open a local htm page eg:
    When pressing the button open:
    C:\Documents and Settings\****\My Documents\profile.htm
    - Open this with any browser
    any pointers to look in the right direction, couldn't find it with search
    I dont want to use a JEditorPane to display the htm, just open any browser
    Edited by: Mr_Tuition on Dec 7, 2007 3:40 AM

    I also wont be able to use it to open an local file which will be set up differently on each computer:
    C:\\Documents and Settings\\***\\My Documents\\JavaProjX\\Preview\\profile.htmI want to use just: Preview\\profile.htm so it opens from the same location with different users, but
    try { Process process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\IEXPLORE.EXE Preview\\profile.htm");}
         catch(IOException e) { System.out.println("could open IE");}opens: http://preview/profile.htm (incorrect location)
    I have just found I can use System.getProperty("user.dir"); to get the location of my program (i think)

  • A very very very simple question

    Hi guys,
    I have a very simple question and standard but I cant find anywhere...
    I have two dateTime variables, i need to calculate difference between this dates in days, thats it.
    I tried all functions and tried without success a Java Embed task but I couldnt retrieve this objects as java.util.Date so I couldnt calculate exactly the difference in days like this pure java code:
    (dataVencimento.getTime() - dataReferencia.getTime()) / 86400000L)
    can you help me this?

    Hi Jose
    Just see if these alternate approaches works. I know there may be lot like this and you may be lucky to find out simple out of box solution itself. If you want to solve this issue and move ahead, gives these approaches a shot.
    1. Create a very simple standalone WebService that takes 2 input date elements (can be of Date type or String type. If string type, convert to date in your java code). Create a simple operation like getDaysBetween(firstDate, secondDate). In the generated webservice impl class, use the java code apis (refer earlier link for usage), and get the difference. Return this value. NOW, invoke this WebService in your BPEL Process, and pass your 2 inputs (if the bpel payload elemetns are date object or string objects of date), and get output, and then use this output in your continuing bpel process.
    2. This approach, I did a long back. When we insert any expression using XPath, in that editor window on bottom right side, we see many categories and for each category we see list of functions we can use, like for String, we can use concat etc. I vaguely remember reading somewhere, that we can add our own custom functions also in this section. So explore this direction and see if you can add your own function and then use that fucntion with your 2 input dates.
    I have not given solution to your problem, but may be these directions can help you move ahead. Or something along these lines.
    Thanks

  • Simple question about telnet and characters

    Hi all,
    We've installed for the first time a SUN machine. So i think it's for a SUN expert a very simple question.
    Normally when i type a special character it will be dispayed like " � " [alt+132]
    But when i use a telnet session and i type "alt+132" i get a "d" and not "�".
    Does someone know where i must start to find out how this works ?
    Thanks you very much.
    ESP

    This is probably related to the locale your server is in. I don't remember the default locale a box is installed in if you don't specify. I think its "C". I use the UTF-8 or en_US.ISO8859-1 locales at home. At work, usually C but sometimes applications may require UTF-8. BEA Weblogic required this for a project a while back. This is defined in /etc/init/tz.
