4.4 seems to have solved the one problem where the apps would crash when it asked for user admin pass but that is fixed... so far as I have seen.

to the developer:

1. Is the $9.99 the 1/2 price cost or is it the full cost?

2. Once you get the 10.6 version working, will the half-price sale still be available?

Thanks for creating these things - they look very useful but, alas, I'm running Snow leopard.

Also, a "portable version" of "App_Pauser" is included in ToolBar Extras. That software alone sells for $9.99.

I bought these Toolbar Extras almost 2 years ago for $5. Now they're charging 4 times as much for the very same Toolbar Extras! That seems like an odd price strategy to me, particularly in these times of economical recession, but then what do I know. Luckily for me the 'old' Toolbar extras still seem to work fine.

Well, this is mainly because of the hours it took to develop the apps. And, that we are now offering greater support for our products. As you will notice, all software formerly under "electriceelprod.com" is now under "Mosaic Interactive".

Send us your receipt and we will keep you up to date with our software.

Great tools, and I decided to buy them them right away. However some tools like trash require you to have admin rights in order to execute them. I only have one account on my Mac, an admin account but I use it without a password. These tools that require admin rights don't work as I have no password to fill in.

I send the developer an email about this but unfortunately never received an answer.

Um, I never received your email, curious which address you sent it to. Okay, so you need admin rights only when you plan on changing someone else's account. Like when you choose to empty trash on all users. Sadly, any app that changes something with the system will need an admin password. Like "Maintenance" or "Shutdown".

I send an email to the address that was mentioned on the paypal receipt on November 22, 2007 at 1.33 pm (your name at yahoo.com).

I'm not sure if I expained it well. I have only one account on my Mac, so I'm always admin. I always install apps for every user, if asked for by an installer. When I tried to trash something through your toolbar extras (an Apple lossless music file), the app stated that I did not have enough rights and that I needed to be an admin. I selected the space where I can type a password and hit enter key, but that didn't do the trick. All apps besides Toolbar Extras that require me to enter my admin password accept the fact that I do not use a password, and hitting the enter key is in those cases enough.

Electric Eel Productions (developer) replied on 04 Dec 2007
So in your Accounts, you have no password entered in for your user? So when asked by any other app or installer, you just leave it blank?

I have never heard of such a thing, but I will address it as soon as I can. It is probably a quick fix, and a new version will be available shortly, so this complaint will be fixed in the new version.
burypromote
Electric Eel Productions (developer) replied on 04 Dec 2007
A quick fix may be to enter a password like "sample", click the keychain checkbox to add it to your keychain, then go to your keychain access in your utilities folder and change the password for "com.electriceelprod.nameofapp" to be "" (type two double quotes)

Any of the little applets that call for authorization crash on SL. All the other simple ones like "home.app," "delete.app," and "up.app" work. Even "server.app" works. It's those that call for permission that crash about a second after the permission prompt arises. Fix that and they are 10.6.1 ready.

Hi...great app, but I've hit a big problem and am worried! I made two of my folders invisible and have no idea to make them visible again. I also used up all the allowed attempts trying!!! I'm not overly techy, but any help you can give to let me know how to make the folders reappear is much appreciated.

I've tried uninstalling the app and restarting but the folders are gone :(

Please anyone!

MNICONA, try a utility such as OnyX to see invisible files. Then use something like Xray to change the visibility.
burypromote
Electric Eel Productions (developer) replied on 24 Nov 2007
Oh, okay. Use "Toggle" (included as a free ToolBar Extra). This will show invisible files. Then use whatever program, possibly XRay as mentioned to toggle the invisibility of those items.

rsef6 had trouble on 27 Oct 2007
I would like some help. I double-clicked your "Invisible" app, clicked "Invisible", and my desktop icon for my internal drive went bye-bye. I'm not sure what file/folder/disk was even selected. I can still access it, but it's not "visible". I tried using your app to bring it back, no luck. If I use another utility to show all invisibles, it reappears. But I can't make it stick. While it's "visible", I've made an alias to it, but I'd like to have the actual.

While "visible, I've had it selected while using your app, but no luck.

Any help would be appreciated. Terminal commands?


Any help will be appreciated. (10.4.10).

Use "Toggle.app" to show all invisibles. Then select the item you wish to affect. While it is selected, use "Invisible.app", select "Visible", then use "Toggle.app" to hide the invisibles again.

You may have to use "Go to Folder" from the "Go" Menu in the Finder and go to "/Volumes" and select it from there.

Thanks so much for your reply. I've been trying your suggestion since I "lost" the icon. Like going to 'fridge 9 times hoping something will appear.
So far no luck. Permissions, Tech Tool Pro. Restarts.
Is there a plist I can trash? I'm sure this has an easy fix. I'm usually pretty savvy. Obviously not enough.

try this:
Paste in script editor and run:

--begin
tell application "Finder"
set theDisk to the startup disk
tell application "System Events"
set the visible of alias ((theDisk) as text) to true
end tell
quit
end tell
repeat
try
tell application "Finder" to activate
exit repeat
end try
end repeat
--end

You may want to do this while logged in as the root user. If, of course you have the root user enabled.

Oh, don't thank me. It is my responsibility to respond to any users of my software.

Thanks to you for downloading it. Wait a couple more days (maybe sooner) for a new version of this product with new tools and (you guessed it) bigger icons to match the system better. I am still debating how to offer this. I like the idea of donationware, but I am not sure. One new tool (Permissions) has taken me quite some time, so freeware may not be available.

Do you have suggestions?

After installing 'trash' I had no option but to either accept or reject 'immediate deletion'. I have deleted 'trash' again, but I still get this insistent choice when I hit cmd+del. How do I get back to the situation prior to installing 'trash' when I could just move files to the trash folder with that key combo for later 'real' deletion?

Thanks for the suggestion, but I seem to not have made myself quite clear. I turned off the annoying warning you're referring to the very moment I installed OSX.
Prior to installing and using 'trash' I could move files to the trash and they'd just sit there until I chose to empty the trash. Now whenever I want to move something to the trash, I am advised that it will be deleted immediately, ie I cannot just have it sit there anymore until I am ready to empty the trash. Clearly this means that if I accidentally move anything to the trash now, I have no way of pulling it out anymore.
I want to go back to the status I had prior to installing/using 'trash'. How do I go about doing that?
