Compile of KDE4 keeps failing on FreeBSD 9.1 whether by

# cd /usr/ports/x11/kde4 # make install clean

or

# pkg_add -r kde4

after STOP  tried

# cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg # make install clean

–> OK. Then:

# cd /usr/ports/x11/kde4 # make install clean

Works like a charm!

ctrl+shift+ tab == cycle chrome tabs

[space] selects the os x dialog button with blue surround… makes it blue

cmd + D  –  don’t save os x dialog
⌘ + ` –  cycle through an apps windows
⌘ + L  –  focus Chrome address bar
⌘ + ⇧ + 4  –  screenshot
Cmd + right / left arrow  –  go to end / beginning of line

 VLC:

shift+cmd+ left / right arrow – short jump back / forwards 

#opens finder at path:

Chrome’s web history is a sqllite db:

~/Library/Application\ Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Web\ Data

 select * from autofill where value like '%@%' order by value;

Clear Terminal:

$  rm ~/.bash_history<br />$ sudo rm /var/log/asl/*.asl<br />$ history -c<br />$ clear

On 10.8.2, I sporadically get multiple listings for installed apps in the contextual menu. Following fixes that… for a while.

/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

If ye have a Mac and you need batch processing, like say the images in this post try sips in Terminal.app:

$ sips -Z 800 *.JPG -i -s format png --out /Users/yearlus/Desktop/SR-71-rocket-imgs/png

Which basically says take every jpeg in the current directory, make the longest axis 800 pixels (preserving aspect ratio), also create a PNG version, and copy the results to a directory on my desktop.
