Re: insansely slow startup on Mountain Lion

Recommendations on how to migrate? If possible I'd prefer to start with a clean OS install on the 10.8 system, then use Migration Assistant to transfer at least Users and Settings from the 10.6 to 10.8 system. Depending on which Applications (and versions) are on the 10.6 system I might also transf...

Re: Removable hard drive won't eject "in use by LaunchBar"

Try this instead:

* Launch Activity Monitor
* Select LaunchBar
* Click Inspect in the toolbar
* Select the Open Files and Ports tab; output can be copied/pasted, e.g. to a text editor for easier searching
* Look for your external hard drive volume name(s)

Re: "LaunchBar has detected a problem with your OS X Clipboa

Btw, I'm clueless what might be causing your clipboard-related trouble and don't use LB's clipboard feature.

And welcome to the LB (sub)forums, Adlopa, even if mostly idle nowadays. :)

Re: "LaunchBar has detected a problem with your OS X Clipboa

Have you submitted a bug report about that? This forum is relatively inactive and replies from ObjDev staff are rare.

Re: Automator / LB error

Best I let ObjDev take it from here. I'd rather not guess what else you could try without having resources to test them first.

Re: Automator / LB error

Good to know ObjDev support is already involved in helping you. Their hunch of "a bug regarding 32/64bit compatibility"" sounds like the best explanation for your LB/Automator problem now. I was wondering if you're running Lion on a system that can't be updated to Mountain Lion, but h...

Re: Automator / LB error

Are LB's Automator actions now in the Launch Services database since it's been rebuilt?

Re: Automator / LB error

There is no such path here in 10.7 I don't know why unless LaunchBar.app is installed somewhere other than the /Applications folder. It definitely exists on my system: % ls -dl '/Applications/LaunchBar.app/Contents/Library/Automator/Perform Action.action' drwxr-xr-x@ 3 user group 102 Jun 28 06:43 /...

Re: Launching bash script

Thank you SO much - that solved my problem. Cool. Thanks for letting me know. I am aware that *.sh files are associated with Xcode (on my system anyway) but I expected LB to execute the script instead of opening it. Maybe related to LB indexing using Launch Services? The only control over that is i...

Re: Automator / LB error

When I drag and drop it, Automator says: The action “Perform Action” could not be loaded because its executable is not loadable. That works here with LB 5.5.2 on OS X 10.8.4. Is there any suspicious looking Console output when you do it there? Could /Applications/LaunchBar.app/Contents/Library/Auto...

Re: Launching bash script

Try removing the .sh filename extension from the script. Xcode is the default app for opening files with a .sh extension and LB is processing your ~/foo.sh script that way instead of honoring its shebang . In a test here, when using LB to run a shell script named ~/bin/om-find (with a #!/bin/sh sheb...

Have you tried the "Add Snippet" action (described in LaunchBar Help)? That method works for me; other don't.
