What files did you delete, and what command is not found?i can't open system preferences and delete files from anywhere, I've tried to repair permissions and delete files from terminal but now i can't do it, it says "command not found" please help me i looked everywhere on the web and nothing seems to work. Thank you
Yeah, basic troubleshooting can solve a LOT of issues, depending on how serious the problem actually is. There have been more than a few posts on here about problems that simple permission repair/reboot fixed.Thanks for the replies. When I got home today, I simply restarted the system. I hope this doesn't mean that I'm one of those people who has to restart more than once b/c that's a pain...
However, looks like everything is back to normal. BTW, does the "First Aid" help for a lot of problems such as this?
are the files locked for some reason? Did you repair permissions?i have some files on desktop the only way i could remove some was by the terminal (mr -f (name of file), i can open most my files but not delete them, i can't access messenger and system preferences. i ran fsck and pram but did not solved the problem, everything else is working fine. this happened when i installed lexmark software on my mac.
