Even on a
Mac things can go awry. The nifty Liquid app was spewing out errors in the Console…
com.apple.xpc.launchd: (com.hyperwords.liquidwordsfree) Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds.
Others have observed that just deleting the Liquid app will not remove the errors. You will need to dig a little deeper and delete…
com.hyperwords.liquidwordsfree from the Containers folder in your Library
com.hyperwords.liquidwordsfree.plist from the Preferences folder in your Library
com.hyperwords.liquidwordsfree from the system’s…
(that last bit may be different for you).
If you have trouble finding these folders the nifty
PopClip app can, once you have selected the text, offer you a folder icon that will take you straight to the desired location.
Alternatively the nifty
Hazel app will find all those extraneous files, when you have moved the main app to the Trash, and ask if you want to delete those too.
Once it is all cleared out a fresh install from the
App Store and all is well again.
Today’s secret word is Nifty.
If the Mac’s App Store has been insisting you constantly need to update the Pro Video Formats to version 2.0.1…
Try using the standalone installer which may convince the App Store that you do not need further updates…
Step by step set up using Aquamacs editor with the awesome Xiki…
Mac running OS X Mavericks which should have Ruby 1.9.3 as the default version.
Jewellery Box to manage your Ruby versions (RVM) and gems
Open the Terminal and install the Xiki gem…
$ gem install xiki
Verify that all is well…
A Xiki directory will have been created in your Home folder so jump into that…
$ cd ~/xiki/
Then run the set up script…
$ bash etc/install/el4r_setup.sh
You will now need an editor that will see an invisible file (the dot at the start of the name hides the file from being listed in a Finder window: .el4r). I use
BBEdit but the free version called Text Wrangler will do the job…
Select the Show hidden items option
Add these lines to the end of the init.rb file in the .el4r folder within the xiki folder within your Home folder…
KeyBindings.keys # Use default key bindings
Themes.use “Default” # Use xiki theme
Fire up Aquamacs and it should drop you straight into Xiki…
