    I already did a search on the forums and google.. I tried typing chflags nohidden ~/Library in terminal and it doesn't work. I tried typing sudo chflags nohidden ~/Library and i am unable to type my password as terminal just freezes up.

    I'm running Mountain Lion OS X on a 2012 Mac Mini.

    This is really ****ing frustrating.

    In Finder, hold down the Option key and click Go and the Library will appear in the drop down list.

    That doesn't sound good. Are you sure you typed the command exactly? You don't need to use sudo for anything in your User domain -- you own it already.

    There are many ways to access the Library or other hidden folders. <alt> and Go menu is one. <command><Shift> G and type ~/Library is another.

    Easy way to make the user library visible:

    Search for the freeware app "Mountain Tweaks".

    Download it and it has an option to make the user library visible.
