Annoyances Part I


Adobe Updater: This appears on my toolbar on OSX, for something that only runs once a day an icon is too much real estate to spare, besides Adobe in general suffers from a false  sense of self worth. To Disable the Updated Icon in the tool bar click on update, click on preferences, and uncheck both update and report success of failure to Adobe.

EverNote: I think Evernote is a fantastic tool (pity it will not work on Linux), never the less, does it warrant space on my OSX Toolbar?  I think not! Open Evernote, Preferences, General, uncheck show elephant in menubar – this will remove the elephant icon from the menu bar on your Apple computer.

FireFox: How to remove history in Form Fields.  Occasionally a login name will remain on a Form Field for example email address will often appear in the field as you start filing it out,  annoying if you have the wrong spelling or if you are on a shared computer. To do this Highlight the value you wish to delete and then press Shift & Delete.

    Hi Roland,

    To fix Patrice’s printing to the library I had to use the following procedure:

    Remove all printers using the canon drivers

    Open terminal, and run the following commands, you will need the password for the current admin user:

    sudo rm -rf /Library/Printers/Canon/UFR2
    sudo rm /Library/LaunchAgents/
    sudo rm /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/CNTDIR*

    After this reboot, and reinstall the GCCC Printers Package from the Wiki.

    The Wiki Server stops working and appears to loose connectivity to Active Directory.

    Hi Roland,
    I hope you got it sorted yesterday, It sounds like it lost connectivity to the active directory server, you can run “sudo killall DirectoryService” from terminal to get it to restart, or a reboot should do it as well.
    Thanks, Wayne.
