Some nice terminal tips…

… for Mac OS X Users I felt over in the last few weeks. Here are my favourite ones:

Show Path in Finder:

defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool YES

Restart Finder afterwards via killall Finder or the Force Quit Option.
(found via TUAW)

Change Backup Interval of TimeMachine

This is really nice, if you want other Backup Times for your TimeMachine permanently.

sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.backupd-autoStartInterval -int 7200

The time you pass to this command will be the backup interval in seconds, so this command will backup every 2 hours e.g.
(I think I got this also from TUAW, but haven’t found the URL yet…)

Software Update

I like this one, because I like to use cron for such tasks. So here it comes the software update command via your Terminal:

sudo softwareupdate -i -a

( and guess what? Also via TUAW)
