When will wordpress update their Kupu to 1.4.4?

Making Safari and other browsers on Mac OS X compatible with ZopeEditManager and with .zem files that may be served by Zope/Plone

Posted by Graham Perrin on 21 November 2007

I have submitted the following hint to http://www.macosxhints.com/.

Feel free to test/comment…

Safari compatibility with .zem and ‘Edit with external application’ features of Plone/Zope

For .zem files, sometimes offered by Plone content management systems, to be treated as safe by Safari and similar applications, you may add three strings to your DownloadAssessment preferences.

1) in Terminal,

plutil -convert xml1 ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.DownloadAssessment.plist

2) in Terminal,

pico ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.DownloadAssessment.plist

3) include the three strings shown in the example at http://pastebin.ca/792460 then save and close the plist

4) get ZopeEditManager from the Urbanape software area

5) ZopeEditManager menu | Preferences… | Helper Apps

  • you may wish to add helpers such as
    • application/msword | NeoOffice | .doc

6) quit then re-launch Safari.

Microsoft Office Live Workspace Beta system requirements problem

Posted by Graham Perrin on 1 October 2007

According to Microsoft,  Office Live Workspace works with … Firefox 2.0 on Mac OS X 10.2.x and later.In fact, when I use Firefox on Mac OS X 10.4.10, Microsoft’s free sign-up routine fails at an early hurdle. Office Live complains:

In order to use Microsoft Office Live, you will need to have Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or later running on Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Microsoft Windows Server 2003.

misbehaving applications and update_prebinding in Mac OS X

Posted by Graham Perrin on 15 June 2007

If applications on your Mac are misbehaving, and a fix is elusive, try this:

  1. use Disk Utility to verify your disks
  2. launch Terminal
  3. quit from all other applications
  4. at the command line, run the following command
  5. sudo update_prebinding -force -root /

  6. whilst that command runs, be very patient
  7. whilst waiting for the command to complete, do absolutely nothing — it’s essential to not touch your Mac until after the run is complete
  8. any errors presented during the run are typically negligible, but if you like you can take a note of them after the event.

Credit to Unsanity for casting light on related issues.
