Firing TimeMachine from LaunchBar

Which LaunchBar version are you running? 6.1.6 ... Which OS X Version are you running? 10.10.1 ... Your message: Hey! Remember me, the guy who could not get the themes to load and it broke all sorts of stuff to the point I even had to uninstall it? Finally I figured it out. I had to literally break ...

need sudo

To make this simple: I put this into a file #!/bin/sh sudo -s Save the file, and put it in the Actions folder in the App Support folder of the Library folder. I can run it, but nothing ever asks me to enter in my password. The only think I can think of is to pop an applescript alert, but then how do...

still unusable to upgrade to 6

I am still unable to upgrade to 6, a few questions: I try to fill out the support form, which make a large mailto: style link, since I don't use mail.app, and use gmail, usually mailto: llinks open in gmail just fine, something about this link doesn't work. Could there be a chance that mail.app must...

Re: The state of LB 6 and user frustration hitting a peak…

Me too, I am having in o course, and I too have had to revert to version 5, twice, but it certainly would go a long way to get a little what the heck is going on from the developer. That would be most appreciated to hear from around here. We have this community making all these cool actions, helping...

Feedback on operations and errors

Hello, How do I get feedback on operations on LB? for example, I use the compress command often, the one that tar and grips files. Some of my directories are large. How do I know when they are done? Sometimes the LB menu drop down will disappear and I know it is done, other times, I resort to the te...

Re: Where are these email addresses coming from

For anyone else who may run into this, I suspect it has to do with gmail syncing. The addresses are making it into gmails system where it stores temporary email addresses for quick use even if they are not in your contacts/address book. The solution is simple, go into your LaunchBar Index,, select &...

Re: Version 6 Themes not working

Can we do a little survey here? Those of you on LB version 6, take a trip to your preferences, and see if you see what I am seeing? I have this strange feeling I am not the only one, it is just that many are setting the themes via command-space ( or whatever the have chosen as their invocation key )...

Version 6 Themes not working

I have been trying to fix this for months. The themes don't show up in LB. I can select them by command-space and picking a theme but if I go to the prefs and try to select them there, this is what I see: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/340087/drops/09.10.14/themes-d5-132139.png If I install I theme from a ...

Re: Can LB inject the stdout of a shell script like a snippe

I have put that snippet in my actions folder, here is a screenshot of the action in my text editor: m I save that into my actions folder, and it is picked up in the index as the file is named, in this case `matey` But as per my previous mention, it is dog slow for some reason, and I would like offic...

Where are these email addresses coming from

A good example is the random-letters+numbers@craiglist.org, which show up in LaunchBar all the time. Where do they come from? I use gmail, and I DO NOT use it's contact manager/address book. I use the Apple Contacts application for managing my contacts. And I do not have a single craigslist.org emai...

also: #!/bin/sh osascript -e "tell application \"LaunchBar\" to paste in frontmost application \"$(/bin/date "+%D - %r")\"" & Would you mind firing up script editor and testing that one out, it is a escaping issue, and I am stumped on what is going on. Ri...

Re: Can LB inject the stdout of a shell script like a snippe

For what it's worn, this doesn't work either, I am off to try the applescript that forces a paste. Is this really how this is supposed to be, I seem to recall this just working in the past.

Re: Can LB inject the stdout of a shell script like a snippe

I will give that a try within the next 15 minutes, can you break down what it is you are doing? Is this standard operating procedure or a hack? Are there docs on this method, I have never seen this before. Actually, I just tried it, and the LB min window makes the replacement, hitting return again w...
