I would have no problem talking to my professional clients about using the right button. I would have already set up their computers and activated it. They would see the benefits right away.

When you deal with Joe Average Consumer you need to set your standards considerably lower. You wouldn't believe how low sometimes. Perhaps if you gave a general proviso in your introductory paragraph, you could then just say right-click, but if you don't give any warning at all you will surely loose a lot of readers. I give Mac users credit for being at least as smart as OK, way smarter than Windows users, and no Windows documentation would ever spell out what right-click means, even for the most basic, non-power user.

What I'd like to see, and try to encourage by way of this article, is for the same thing to happen on the Mac side! WOW - lots of opinions. I picked up some tips to use on my new laptop. Big help. My first Mac wasthe oridinal witha monitor on a stalk. I threw the mouse away and used my logitech 4button mouse left over from windows. I stiil use that mouse 2 power Macs later.

After reading your article, I gave right-clicking aka clacking another try having tried it and not liking it years ago. I set the right side of my standard issue Apple no-button iMac mouse as "secondary button. After just a few minutes, I remembered why I didn't like it. Even making a conscious effort to click on the left side of the mouse when I didn't want a contextual menu, it was interpreted about half the time as a right click perhaps because I use my index finger on the scroll ball, leaving no fingers on the left side. I then had to click again to get rid of the menu and carefully click yet once more on the left side, or take the time to scroll down to what just a fast double click would have done to start with.

And sometimes not even that. An accidental right click gives me only "Search Web for 'post' " useless and nothing that opens the link. Just don't confuse that with "not liking right-clicking"! You know Joe, I've been using Macs since the mouse was a novelty. What I can't understand is why Mr InnovationsPlus Jobs hasn't abandoned the mouse in favour of a wireless external trackpad, so that I can enjoy all of the wonderful features from my MacBook Pro on my Mac Pro.

Of course, I'm sure that will happen just after I buy my next Mac ;-. I use an old Kensington PilotMouse with 2 top buttons, 2 side buttons, and a clickable scroll wheel. With MouseWorks, I mapped one side button to Control-click, the scroll button to Shift-click, and the other side button to click and hold.

Those heavily used items work almost everywhere. I wish they were included in all contextual menus by the OS. This menu even lets me copy or paste the highlighted name of a Finder icon where the standard contextual menu does not work. Sadly, configuring MouseWorks seems to fail under new versions of the OS but because I configured it previously, the mapping still works under Leopard.

I've looked for replacements to let me create my own menu and assign it to a mouse button but have not found one. I agree with spreading the contextual menu gospel but I still think Control-click is more universal and more widely understood. The article "Clicking the Right Button" confuses syntactic and semantic features concerning the gestical language, humans may use when talking to their computers. What is usually named "left-click" is at the semantic level one of many ways to say "object-select" or "object-focus". What is discussed as "right-click" is semantically one of many options to do an "action-menu-select".

Imagine that soon we have more computers without physical gesture-devices. Start to abandon the outdated terminology of "right" and "left" and "click" when explaining to users "what to say" to computers. Then it becomes distinct for them that for any "what to say" they mostly have several choices of "how to say".

I don't think we can abandon terms like "click" as long as the mouse or its equivalent is the primary way to interact with computers. As this discussion shows, a lot of people don't grasp the "what to say" concept at all! And, no need to make documentation more cumbersome still. Compare "Click OK" to "Tell the computer to accept the default choice.

As someone who prefers to use the keyboard and who occasionally has to teach elderly users, many of whom find using the mouse difficult , I'd be keen to learn how I might assign a keyboard shortcut to reproduce the right click. Ideally it'd be great if this could work across several applications but life is rarely that simple! How do visually impaired people manage? Presumably they don't use a mouse at all?

The problem is that a right click, like a standard click, is tied to the pointer coordinates - that's where the menu appears. The pointer location doesn't necessarily have anything to do with where the insertion point if any is, and it's awkward to move the pointer using the keyboard. So if you don't want to touch your mouse at all, you can usually assign keyboard shortcuts to the commands that would otherwise be on the contextual menu, but unfortunately you won't have the visual cue of being able to see what contextual commands are currently available.

I use Windoze at work with a lot of Excel work - I right click. At home I used keyboard shortcuts for common actions or menus until the Mighty Mouse came along - but I found it difficult to get that device to work on the right click - you had to press down really specifically to get it to operate, so was hit and miss. But the Magic Mouse is different and the right click on the right side of the top works beautifully. I suffered a frozen shoulder and at home chose to start using the mouse with my left hand, and have never changed sides - the index finger just moves slightly to the right of the top to engage the right click, and it is normally over the left side for standard click.

It works. When I read your article over the holidays I thought I would try using right-click, however I don't use a mouse but a Kensington trackball, indeed I have been using varieties of this since about , however when I tried I could not get my trackball to recognise right-click. I use an iMac G5 20" with Leopard I contacted Kensington who tell me that for reasons of their own they have stopped updating Mouseworks 3 the software which controls the trackball some time ago and apparantly have no plans for a further upgrade.

Has anyone any ideas for alternative software which can control a Kensington Turbo Mouse Pro and give me right -click? For what it's worth, MouseWorks 3. Perhaps try reinstalling it? I've been using a track ball for eons and always set it up for the right hand button generally operated by the middle or ring digit to take up the RightClick burden. I'm not sure a multi-button mouse is ever a good idea, at least from user interface design view. There's the old joke about Microsoft designing a car.

The car, of course, has five brake pedals, each to be used in specific circumstances. I agree with several other commenters about overestimating secondary button use. It was a specific object of learning that many chose to ignore or bypass. Click-hold the legacy default Mac behavior for accessing secondary click characteristics is both more elegant, and more intuitive. But neither behavior is sufficiently intuitive, and I suppose that is why Apple finally acquiesced to allowing the inclusion of hidden complexity in multi-button mice. I bought an Interex two-button scrolling mouse to use with my Lombard in July , plus Apple keyboard and laptop stand.

Could never understand Apple's reluctance to make one, so I've bought other mices, primarily bottom of the line wired MS mice, all of which had perfectly good software. It's always worked fine, and was cheap. Now if there was only an equally seamless way to re-size folder windows Please, let us keep the debate about pros and cons of two-button or multi-button clicking options separate from the terminological question of calling the action typically carried out to invoke a contextual menu on a Mac "control-clicking" or "right-clicking".

I am neutral on the first issue and would like to leave the choice to each user's work habits and needs. More or less any Mac user that understands "right-click" in a Mac context will know that the standard equivalent action is control-clicking. This asymmetry, rooted in the Mac-history, ought to be respected in the terminology used in articles and documentations.

I'm trying to say that using the term "Control-click" merely reinforces the notion that there is no such thing as a right-click, and encourages a more difficult way of accomplishing a task rather than an easier way. So that's what I'd like to change. I'm arguing that "respecting history" is not a good thing in this instance, because it prevents us from moving forward! This matter is totally different than whether the use of more buttons is good or bad.

And that limited concept goes out when you have more than two buttons. I'm a freelance technical writer. The way I work with this for my clients is that I put a 'conventions' section at the beginning of each manual to explain what terminology like Control-click and right-click mean and, in this case, their equivalence in Mac OS X. My general convention, for consumer documentation, is to always have the menu command as the primary explanation. Depending on the available space, the keyboard shortcuts or the shortcut menu method can be presented briefly or cut out.

Within the content, itself, anything related to shortcut menus is given as an alternate method Therefore, if there's space, all bases are covered, but people who don't want to use the right [secondary] mouse button don't have to. I'm in the "perform a Control-click however that's done with your computer input device " crowd. Control-clicking is what everyone is accomplishing behind the scenes, as acknowledged in the article, so why not admit it?

I Right-click sometimes, I Control-click sometimes, and now, thanks to your article, sometimes I two-finger tap my trackpad! As someone who's intimately familiar with the inner workings of mouse software, I have to point out that "Control-click" is NOT what's really happening behind the scenes! Each mouse button sends a different message to the system, and "secondary click" is not the same as Control-click.

That is, when you press the right mouse button, your mouse is NOT sending a "Control-click" to the system although that workaround was once necessary, years ago. It's simply sending the message "this button was pressed," and Mac OS X just happens to respond the same way to that message as to "Control-click. I'm surprised no one has mentioned yet the way that certain web browsers offered access to the secondary-click: click-hold, aka half-click. I always call it a context-click because it brings up a contextual menu.

I like the idea of calling it a secondary-click or an alt-click which brings up another complication of pressing the alt option key. I'm a lefty so I don't like using right-click because it is wrong for me. Of course for any of this to work you need to have the button configured and if the button is configured you are preaching to the choir and it doesn't matter what terminology you use because it will probably be understood. So control-click is the winner because that will always work even with a clueless user on an unmodified system.

As you might have read: the current password request method is far from what I like hence the reference to the previous version. Had all sorts of trouble. My advice, add a price tag. Adding a price tag makes me feel obligated to update and modify based on user requests which kind-a takes the fun out of it.

Glad you like the app though! Good to hear …. Love this application for my custom software. Problem is if I have a computer without a password, how do I get pass the authentication requirement? Every Mac has a password. I have a password that I use every time I start my computer but it will not accept it.

I am second owner of this computer so I did not do the original set up. I hope to develop a new version in the next weeks that supports the method of v1. I am having an issue with the sudo version.

The Anatomy of Push Notifications

However they are using basically no memory or CPU. I will look into creating a new version — for now please revert to the previous non-sudo version. I apologize for the inconvenience. I have this very often when working with micro SD cards. The flimsy adapter I have slides to locked 9 out of 10 times when inserting it in the SD card reader. That being said, everything else worked as expected and this was a huge time saver for me.

Thanks Hans! For some reason the backup does not seem to work when the SD card is read-only, so until I have figured out what is causing this, I kept the backup button disabled for read-only drives. I agree with the user experience … backup after all should be only reading … so Read-Only should not be an issue …. Glad to hear that! Thanks James! This is great! Thanks Doug! Thanks Wolf! Same here. Even ran the public beta … just updated Always great to get positive feedback!

Thanks for mentioning ApplePi-Baker — nice little project by the way! I might follow your example! After that it hangs. Did you upgrade to For quite a lot of people 1. Thanks for reporting the details! This helps finding the culprit! I am an Admin. I even logged in as root and tried from there but still wont work. What version did you tey? Let me know if that works. I have become complacent on the terminal where the Pi-baker is so easy to use! Yes you can use dd images!

I also had issues with the password entry in version 1. Interestingly, when I clicked cancel the program started. I could not restore an image without the password, but the program was running. Admin password remain required, no matter what method or version will be used, since the entire SD card will be accessed. Unfortunately this cannot be avoided with the security measurements in MacOS X. Glad to hear that 1. I login to my computer every time I turn it on but it will not accept my login.

Says some thing about Sudo. I checked under accounts in system preferences and I am the only person listed. I feel stupid but just thought I should post this in case there are some other stupid people out there. I am using Yosemite from a fresh install. I tried to restore from a gzip image and it hung like others had reported. I tried all sorts of things and finally gave up so I decided to take out the SD card adapter and put it in my Linux box to burn the image.

Amazing what happens when you can actually write to the card!!!!! So not saying all of you who were having problems are stupid like me but you may just want to check the write protect switch on your micro SD card adapter if you are using one. Well, we all, myself included, make little goof ups like that … thanks for reporting though! Ich empfehle euch Raspbian Download-Seite. Some user reported similar issues. Download v1. Unfortunately that version does not support compression.

I can now get rid of my windows laptop which I only retain in order to use win32diskimager and cloning sd cards. Great to hear that the app works well for you as well! Feedback like this is always appreciated and a good motivator to keep developing little apps like this. I would like to make a paypal donation for your efforts, but cannot find a working link, If you have one could you post it? That is very much appreciated, but not required. You can donate through hans at luijten dot net. Unfortunately, PayPal forced me to remove the PayPal donation link …. Thank you very much Rhen for the great feedback!

Thank you for this great tool! DD works, but it so nice to have the progress bars and to have all the tedious syntax eliminated. Thanks Kent! A positive feedback and thank you is always very much appreciated! Wonderful software, thanks! No Paypal account for donations? Donation is much appreciated, but not required. Hello Thank you the newer version gave me password restriction although I m Admin.

It will ask your password and show a directory listing. You can turn this feature off on an app by app basis in the Preferences. I left it for awhile but nothing changed so I tried it again and this is what it puts in the console in case thats of any help! Latest received id is Now I need to remove some files from my Mac so I can create an image of the 16Gb card :. I hope to find time to create a smarter way of making IMG files … so it will only store the relevant data. But it will require time to do some testing and research … not to mention that I have to find a good way to handle elevate rights since some folks report issues with v1.

As for the log file, after looking at it for a while, I can only see that there appears to be a alignment error disk1 — now from what I understand this does not need to be related to disk as such, but could also be a partition or file issue. Not sure which. Or is it the SD-card? Cuando termine este proceso, ya podemos meter la micro SD en nuestra Raspberry […].

Also having the same issue with v1. What is the error message you get and what steps did you follow to get to this error so I can try to reproduce the problem? I do not get an error message, there is a pop up that shows momentarily on the screen then the whole application closes down. I basically click on my SD card on the left and select the Create Backup button and then click the ok button on the screen that mentions zip files and image sizes, after that the app closes down with a momentary pop window just before.

Obviously hard to trace as well. And you might not have access to another Mac to give it a try. Glad to help — I hate it when a useful program fails …. Enjoy your travels and thank you again for taking the time to respond. My version of OS X is Since you see the same problem with 1. Just a heads up to say that the link you gave me was very useful and I made an image using the command on there. Some users seem to have problems with 1. At least you were able to flash an SD card …. Make your SD-card bootable and copy the image file.

Thanks for this App. Great idea. I have trying to create the image to my micro sd card but it does not seem like it is progressing at all. I am going to let it roll for a few hours to see if perhaps it was doing something and I was just being impatient.

Forgive my ignorance, I have a g micro sd card. From what I understand, Fat32 only supports up to 32G card. You have to expand the card after you get it installed. This however is not a FAT32 limitation. According to a post at superuser. Most filesystems are limited in their size. You need to pick a filesystem that is capable of using the entire size of the SD card. Which one you chose is also dependent on the environment you will be using it in. Some common choices for high capacity filesystems include:. Downloaded Raspbian, used your program to create the image on the micro sd card.

I got it home and it does want to boot at all. I have a 16G micro SD card that works. I had bought a larger G to put ROMs on. Tempted to just buy a thumb drive and put the rooms on there and call it a day. You must have a lot of ROMS! Can I ask again for the exact make and model of gig micro SD card you bought? Thanks Neil for leaving a positive feedback! I like your suggestion and will add it in the next version! Thanks William! Looks like a great program but it will not work for me.

I get stuck at the password. You could try v1. Any idea how this may have happend? Thank you very much! Also thank you for taking the effort to leave a nice feedback!

Trust me I wasted a lot of time. Maybe John could add a warning to tell you the SD card is locked. Good idea — let me see if I can implement that Read Only state , I actually ran into that problem the other day as well — which initially confused me as well. Thanks Adam! Hans, I could create an introduction type video for Apple Pi baker. Something that would display the features and capabilities of apple pi baker. Its ok if you say no, my feelings wont be hurt.

Just an idea. Nice to see such enthusiasm, I love it …. I very much appreciate your efforts though — the icon looks really good! As for the instruction video: Please be my guest to make one! I hope to find time in the near future to revamp ApplePi-Baker and add more functionality. Im not dissappointed about the icon.

Im to exited to make the video! Thanks for giving me a chance! This is the best rasoberry pi program ever! Second, when are you planning on getting that update out. Im in no rush, and i dont want to rush you,but I want to make the video up-to-date with the new icon made by the other user. And the new features that might be in the update. So I dont have to make it two times in a short time. If its possible could you give me the new icon. Just somthing to consider.

I want to make the best video possible. So, have you emailed that file already, or are still planing to get that out. Sending you an email now! Also maybe as part of the new update you could add this icns file I made. This file will look better with the new Yosemite look. Again, just an idea. If you have errors downloading just reply to this. I select the SD card, pick the image… and nothing.

What might I be doing wrong mate? No problem, happens to the best of us! Check the side of the SD card. See below:. And see also the images on Wikipedia here. This will result in an IMG file which at a later time can be used to restore the image to an SD card of the same size or bigger.

Is that what you were looking for? This is something which catches a lot of people out. Andrew is right … data is scattered all over the card, no guarantee that things are nicely lined up …. No, unfortunately, ApplePi-Baker is not catching that. This becomes specially tricky when using compressed IMG files. With version 1. Again, lack of Ext support makes this very tricky and it will probably go a little beyond my expertise. Maybe when creating a compressed IMG backup of an SD card, you could store its uncompressed size as an extended attribute on the file?

That was my interpretation any way more details. The first one being free, the second one being commercial but maybe more mature. Not to mention the different? But … it could be an interesting start. I just ran in to the issue of a non-writeable card, it was not the lock switch but another weird issue. After reading this post on the forum i did a manual format to check if there was a write problem. It worked ok and after that, pi-baker worked great.

You could just have it as a separate process or a pre-processing check? Anyway, just my two cents. Awesome program btw.. Thank you for all your hard work. I will however try to make a new version of Pi-Baker that does a read-only check — I might have found a way to do that, just need the time to implement it. Could you please set the password visibility to be off by default!

Having clear text password fields is a big no-no. Any instance where my password can be visible fills me with instant district for the software.

You might consider adding that to your website. I will use your Amazon link on my next order. Thank you so much for leaving a nice comment! But … donations are optional and I very much appreciate the shopping gesture! Thanks you very much …! You will see a. I tried to use version 1. See also this comment. Sorry for the inconvenience and I hope it resolves your issue.

Partitioning actually needs this as well. But progress should definitely be noticeable after a second or Thanks Bill. I always appreciate it when users take the time to leave a nice feedback! Great tool! Thanks for sharing it! Thanks Ernie for the compliment and the tip! I have been using this for quite some time now and I never came across any problems until I installed El Capitan. Anybody else having this issue? This way I can see if there is something that has changed. I have yet to setup a virtual machine to test El Capitan — unless you can tell me that you have had zero problems with El Capitan.

I only noticed one problem so far with El Capitan Beta 4 and that is plug-in failure with uploading photos. Would you mind giving v1. It would be greatly appreciated. Nice work! And I think it should be called SIC. I have installed El Capitan, but have to admit that I have ran into a lot of unexpected problems even running it properly. Last night I installed the latest beta forgot whether it was beta 3 or 4. I will give it a try today! Not even with sudo. This appears to be an issue seen all over the web.

Well, finally managed to get a new release available which runs under El Capitan So I now included a more rugged code, with exceptions for This should be fixed now …. Other El Capitan users could maybe give 1. It played audio […]. Hi, thanks for the great tool. I rebooted my Mac and also deleted and re-installed several times.

I should give you some messages. Maybe there is a hint there to what might have gone wrong. If all goes well, it should output the same as. Looks like sudo works as it should — which is good! It just disappears and the rolling colorful Apple ball comes up. I could pase the Apple crash report if that helps. For some reason it gets in a loop — I will look at the code and see what the issue might be.

For Windows you can use WinDiskImager. Tried version 1. Oh … I do not have the means to test with Snow Leopard. The arrival of El Capitan caused quite a few extra headaches, and Snow Leopard is a little old, so I never even considered sorry! I better make sure to not remove the old version from the downloads. Is that what you mean? Good catch Andrew! Please feel free to provide feedback …. What message do you get when it crashes? Do you have any AntiVirus software or something like that installed? I also took the opportunity to introduce the new icon, created by Kray Mitchell. Any speed improvements would not be related to any changes in 1.

Hi Calum and Roland, could you give v1. The program will automatically detect the SD card, unmount it and load an image file of your […]. I was gifted a Pi kit that already had the OS on it. I want to add to the SD card by putting RetroPie on as well. However, after reading the instructions here, the options seem to wipe the card then put the image on, which would remove the OS.

Is there a way I can add to it but not replace it? Most systems can do a so called dual-boot, but I have to admit that I have never tried that on a Raspberry Pi. As an alternative you could try to install everything for Retro-Pi on an existing system — but that will take a lot of work, and again I have to admit that I have never done or considered doing that. Would you recommend any peripherals? Well, adding an extra SD slot is not easy. I have not yet done this myself, and people claim it makes the Pi run faster than running of an SD card. Some links: samhobbs. The app hangs after input the sudo password.

I have the logs in case the developer wants to see it. Thanks Victor! Unfortunately it runs fine under my El Capitan, so that might become a challenge. It remains in the dock, but nothing else happens and my only option is to Force Quit. I will look at it today to see if I can find what might the problem. Yeah — v1. Would that be fine to use? Or are the 1. Yes 1. After 1. I will do some more testing under Yosemite though — would be nice if the compression trick would work as well of course. OK great — thanks for your hard work on this — makes it possible to get my Pi setup like I want :.

Cool — keep an eye on this page, as I will try to solve the issues with the newer version. For some reason it works fine here, and I cannot reproduce the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience …. With the older version it works perfectly! Really wished I could have still used the original 1. I have made a small modification to this test version of v1. Feel free to download it from this link. Did anyone with the password problem, test this test version yet? Back to the drawing board I guess … crap. Would you mind keeping an eye on these comments, for when I post a new version?

I will try to get one available today or at the least tomorrow. I just emailed you a new version v1. Please let me know if this one works properly. I think I found a way to reproduce the problem. Awesome — thanks Slash, I very much appreciate that. Trying to use 1. Enter my admin password for sudo and just get an endless spinning ball until I force quit. For those interested, here is a new test version … I just gave it an arbitrary beta name: v1. Tested on MacOS X Additionally, I fixed the issue with being able to make a backup of a read-only drive — in the 1.

Please test and send feedback if you can … it would be greatly appreciated.

10 macOS Tips for New Mac Users

Thanks to Slash for the very quick support in testing this version. ApplePi-Baker does not pay attention to partition at all. OSX First card was Class-2 device. Tried it with Class card and Abort button appeared and it started writing the data. This used to happen for example when the card was Read-Only, but in 1. Thanks for posting your findings … Could the class-2 card be corrupt? When I enter that at says the either the password is incorrect not the case or I do not have sudo rights also incorrect.

Then I have to click on the provided sudo Window and it accepted my password…. Interesting find … I have not been able to reproduce the problem. Create a partition for each OS and find some kind of bootmanager to choose fro which OS to boot. I try to restore an image on my SD card, but when I want to select the image file, I have the rainbow wheel and I am forced to force quit the Apple Pi-Baker. I finally get through it… I put all files on my Desktop in a subfolder and bye bye the rainbow wheel….

Thank you very much for bringing it to my attention! Which version are you using at this moment? If the spinning beachball appears, it means that your Mac is busy doing something like in this case: mounting, or unmounting the SD card. I am using the latest, 1. Is that possible?

Do you have any applications running that might access the SD card? For example Anti Virus or a clean-up application to remove MacOS X hidden files from network shares and external drives? Theoretically, you can size down the 16Gb image holding only 2Gb of actual data to 8Gb.

It takes a lot of trickery, for example found here. Oh nice, wish I had a iMac 5K …. Known issue or am I going mad? Nothing big here, just increased the delay for verifying the Sudo password. Thanks BootZ for testing! Having updated to El Capitan I now find that v1. I get a User path does not exist error message. Thanks Bromerzz! The other is to compress the image. I know the script calls some linux tools to do this gparted? GPartEd is indeed only for Linux. Thanks for the suggestions! Hi Hans, many thanks also from me for this nifty little tool! As William stated before, image-compression would be highly appreciated.

Another suggestion is to support usb-stick installations eg. Maybe you can manage to recognize these drives as well… the dd command does work, but it is awfully slow and has no progression bar ;. Give version 1. This release will now also recognize USB sticks or SD-Cards that are not formatted in a format recognized by your Mac — for example ext3 or ext4, and will be able to make a backup of that as well. Hi Hans, thank you very much for this quick release of version 1.

The ext3 formated USB stick is recognized and backed up flawlessly. Also the zipping works, but it is a little bit awkward to see the app with the rainbow-ball as frozen. Maybe in a further release a progress-bar will be added? Glad to hear it all works as expected! The backup file compressing feature is really useful.

It helps me save a ton of my SSD space. How about the feature of writing image to SD card without decompressing the backup file?

It means we can choose the. IMG file when writing image to SD card. So far, I have to unzip manually before choose IMG file. For making a backup I had the idea to pipe dd output straight to zip, or for doing a restore pipe the zip output straight to dd. When using an internal ZIP option, the zip and unzip time increases dramatically app. Thanks Arya. Select your SD card on the left side. Would love to see an option to Backup using rsync so I can backup incrementally when changes are made.

This would also allow me to have a local copy that I could put into a repo to monitor and fork changes for development and testing. Thank you for the compliments and the suggestion. No problem! This raunchy solution looks ideal, though again, above my terminal comfort level lol. I am however considering making a Linux version of ApplePi-Baker, just not quite sure yet how far I want both version to be different.

I really prefer single package solutions … but I will look into the options …. PayPal donations: Yes I do. Not sure if this PayPal link works but otherwise there is a button in the upper left corner of this page. Thank you for asking! Probably the last version of Parallels that I will purchase …. My buddy knows more about Linux than me, so was going to have him check it out. I did some of my own tests for VM vs P and I found that Parallels just ran faster all the way around for me. Mostly web testing stuff though, so again, no heavy use.

I hope to release that version either today or tomorrow. Thank you very much Sean! Without any notice they pulled the plug. You can still donate to this email address though: hans at luijten dot net. Thank you again! Windows users can use Win32 Disk […].

This screenshot is showing how the app layout on the whole screen of my Macbook after submit press OK password. Look at the right side. It should be centered or somewhere that the app windows can show entirely. Screen position: Thanks for the screenshot, I agree, the app should have been centered in the screen. Please let us know how Zip etc works for you. I think Thorin talked about the visibility checkbox in point 1, not about saving the password. It would be nice if the visibility of the password is off by default, instead of on.

Is it possible to change that? Thanks for the compliment. I also requested that feature. Been wondering when. Hope you and your family? Thanks Ekdor! I hope within a few weeks everything will settle, but I know shipping my stuff alone will take at least 4 weeks. Another feature request: detect if the SD is read-only. Thanks for offering to help move! I work as a normal user without admin-rights. For me it is not possible to to bake my pi with 1.

The security dialog box worked for me because I was able to execute tasks like formatting with the rights of an admin. I was already afraid that would happen. Good thing that it at least links to RaspberryPi. Yep Hans, slick and fun app! Funny to see how smart people know how to use their tools.

ApplePi-Baker was never intended for this purpose, but it works just fine for it! I cannot for the LIFE of me find a download link that actually gets me v1. Any help would be appreciated. I just clicked the first link, to verify, but this correctly downloads v1. Maybe your browser or proxy work, school? Can you try another browser or another Internet connection? I can also confirm this. While the app launches and says 1. Screenshot of freshly downloaded 1. Thanks Andrew! Very much appreciate you taking the effort letting me know!

Spread the word …. Thanks for the reminder! Thanks Menno for the positive feedback — always very much appreciated! I am not able to restore a previously made backup. I am moving from a smaller SD 1gb to a bigger one 32gb. Did you create the. Also note that with the latest Apple-Pi Baker, unzipping is no longer needed. Unzipping that afterwards will result in some weird filenames. And is it happening with other images as well? Thank you for making it simple and clear what the user is doing at the time … with feedback from the interface too!

Thanks Dan! I very much appreciate that you took the time to post a positive feedback! People like you make the world a better place ;. Thank you David! Thanks you again! If I manage to implement some of my new ideas, then the new version will take a bit of time to build. Thanks Thorin! I will try to test it on my Mac Am I on a snipe hunt? Any ideas? The password is used directly in SUDO shell statements.

What might also cause issues is passwords with unusual characters like quotes, space, ampersand etc. As you might have read: the current password request method is far from what I like hence the reference to the previous version. Had all sorts of trouble. My advice, add a price tag. Adding a price tag makes me feel obligated to update and modify based on user requests which kind-a takes the fun out of it. Glad you like the app though! Good to hear …. Love this application for my custom software. Problem is if I have a computer without a password, how do I get pass the authentication requirement?

Every Mac has a password. I have a password that I use every time I start my computer but it will not accept it. I am second owner of this computer so I did not do the original set up. I hope to develop a new version in the next weeks that supports the method of v1. I am having an issue with the sudo version.

However they are using basically no memory or CPU. I will look into creating a new version — for now please revert to the previous non-sudo version. I apologize for the inconvenience. I have this very often when working with micro SD cards. The flimsy adapter I have slides to locked 9 out of 10 times when inserting it in the SD card reader. That being said, everything else worked as expected and this was a huge time saver for me.

Thanks Hans! For some reason the backup does not seem to work when the SD card is read-only, so until I have figured out what is causing this, I kept the backup button disabled for read-only drives. I agree with the user experience … backup after all should be only reading … so Read-Only should not be an issue ….

Glad to hear that! Thanks James! This is great! Thanks Doug! Thanks Wolf! Same here. Even ran the public beta … just updated Always great to get positive feedback! Thanks for mentioning ApplePi-Baker — nice little project by the way! I might follow your example! After that it hangs. Did you upgrade to For quite a lot of people 1. Thanks for reporting the details! This helps finding the culprit!

I am an Admin. I even logged in as root and tried from there but still wont work. What version did you tey? Let me know if that works. I have become complacent on the terminal where the Pi-baker is so easy to use! Yes you can use dd images! I also had issues with the password entry in version 1. Interestingly, when I clicked cancel the program started. I could not restore an image without the password, but the program was running. Admin password remain required, no matter what method or version will be used, since the entire SD card will be accessed.

Unfortunately this cannot be avoided with the security measurements in MacOS X. Glad to hear that 1. I login to my computer every time I turn it on but it will not accept my login. Says some thing about Sudo. I checked under accounts in system preferences and I am the only person listed. I feel stupid but just thought I should post this in case there are some other stupid people out there.

I am using Yosemite from a fresh install. I tried to restore from a gzip image and it hung like others had reported. I tried all sorts of things and finally gave up so I decided to take out the SD card adapter and put it in my Linux box to burn the image. Amazing what happens when you can actually write to the card!!!!! So not saying all of you who were having problems are stupid like me but you may just want to check the write protect switch on your micro SD card adapter if you are using one.

Well, we all, myself included, make little goof ups like that … thanks for reporting though! Ich empfehle euch Raspbian Download-Seite. Some user reported similar issues. Download v1. Unfortunately that version does not support compression. I can now get rid of my windows laptop which I only retain in order to use win32diskimager and cloning sd cards. Great to hear that the app works well for you as well!

Feedback like this is always appreciated and a good motivator to keep developing little apps like this. I would like to make a paypal donation for your efforts, but cannot find a working link, If you have one could you post it? That is very much appreciated, but not required. You can donate through hans at luijten dot net. Unfortunately, PayPal forced me to remove the PayPal donation link ….

Thank you very much Rhen for the great feedback! Thank you for this great tool! DD works, but it so nice to have the progress bars and to have all the tedious syntax eliminated. Thanks Kent! A positive feedback and thank you is always very much appreciated! Wonderful software, thanks! No Paypal account for donations? Donation is much appreciated, but not required. Hello Thank you the newer version gave me password restriction although I m Admin. It will ask your password and show a directory listing.

You can turn this feature off on an app by app basis in the Preferences. I left it for awhile but nothing changed so I tried it again and this is what it puts in the console in case thats of any help! Latest received id is Now I need to remove some files from my Mac so I can create an image of the 16Gb card :. I hope to find time to create a smarter way of making IMG files … so it will only store the relevant data. But it will require time to do some testing and research … not to mention that I have to find a good way to handle elevate rights since some folks report issues with v1.

As for the log file, after looking at it for a while, I can only see that there appears to be a alignment error disk1 — now from what I understand this does not need to be related to disk as such, but could also be a partition or file issue. Not sure which. Or is it the SD-card? Cuando termine este proceso, ya podemos meter la micro SD en nuestra Raspberry […].

Also having the same issue with v1. What is the error message you get and what steps did you follow to get to this error so I can try to reproduce the problem? I do not get an error message, there is a pop up that shows momentarily on the screen then the whole application closes down.

I basically click on my SD card on the left and select the Create Backup button and then click the ok button on the screen that mentions zip files and image sizes, after that the app closes down with a momentary pop window just before. Obviously hard to trace as well. And you might not have access to another Mac to give it a try. Glad to help — I hate it when a useful program fails …. Enjoy your travels and thank you again for taking the time to respond. My version of OS X is Since you see the same problem with 1. Just a heads up to say that the link you gave me was very useful and I made an image using the command on there.

Some users seem to have problems with 1. At least you were able to flash an SD card …. Make your SD-card bootable and copy the image file. Thanks for this App. Great idea. I have trying to create the image to my micro sd card but it does not seem like it is progressing at all. I am going to let it roll for a few hours to see if perhaps it was doing something and I was just being impatient.

Forgive my ignorance, I have a g micro sd card. From what I understand, Fat32 only supports up to 32G card. You have to expand the card after you get it installed. This however is not a FAT32 limitation. According to a post at superuser. Most filesystems are limited in their size. You need to pick a filesystem that is capable of using the entire size of the SD card.

Which one you chose is also dependent on the environment you will be using it in. Some common choices for high capacity filesystems include:. Downloaded Raspbian, used your program to create the image on the micro sd card. I got it home and it does want to boot at all. I have a 16G micro SD card that works. I had bought a larger G to put ROMs on. Tempted to just buy a thumb drive and put the rooms on there and call it a day.

You must have a lot of ROMS! Can I ask again for the exact make and model of gig micro SD card you bought? Thanks Neil for leaving a positive feedback! I like your suggestion and will add it in the next version! Thanks William! Looks like a great program but it will not work for me. I get stuck at the password. You could try v1. Any idea how this may have happend? Thank you very much! Also thank you for taking the effort to leave a nice feedback!

Trust me I wasted a lot of time. Maybe John could add a warning to tell you the SD card is locked. Good idea — let me see if I can implement that Read Only state , I actually ran into that problem the other day as well — which initially confused me as well. Thanks Adam! Hans, I could create an introduction type video for Apple Pi baker. Something that would display the features and capabilities of apple pi baker.

Its ok if you say no, my feelings wont be hurt. Just an idea. Nice to see such enthusiasm, I love it …. I very much appreciate your efforts though — the icon looks really good! As for the instruction video: Please be my guest to make one! I hope to find time in the near future to revamp ApplePi-Baker and add more functionality.

Im not dissappointed about the icon. Im to exited to make the video! Thanks for giving me a chance!

This is the best rasoberry pi program ever! Second, when are you planning on getting that update out. Im in no rush, and i dont want to rush you,but I want to make the video up-to-date with the new icon made by the other user. And the new features that might be in the update. So I dont have to make it two times in a short time. If its possible could you give me the new icon. Just somthing to consider.

I want to make the best video possible. So, have you emailed that file already, or are still planing to get that out. Sending you an email now! Also maybe as part of the new update you could add this icns file I made. This file will look better with the new Yosemite look. Again, just an idea. If you have errors downloading just reply to this. I select the SD card, pick the image… and nothing. What might I be doing wrong mate?

I spend one hour a week optimizing my development environment.

No problem, happens to the best of us! Check the side of the SD card. See below:. And see also the images on Wikipedia here. This will result in an IMG file which at a later time can be used to restore the image to an SD card of the same size or bigger. Is that what you were looking for? This is something which catches a lot of people out. Andrew is right … data is scattered all over the card, no guarantee that things are nicely lined up …. No, unfortunately, ApplePi-Baker is not catching that. This becomes specially tricky when using compressed IMG files.

With version 1. Again, lack of Ext support makes this very tricky and it will probably go a little beyond my expertise. Maybe when creating a compressed IMG backup of an SD card, you could store its uncompressed size as an extended attribute on the file? That was my interpretation any way more details. The first one being free, the second one being commercial but maybe more mature. Not to mention the different? But … it could be an interesting start. I just ran in to the issue of a non-writeable card, it was not the lock switch but another weird issue. After reading this post on the forum i did a manual format to check if there was a write problem.

It worked ok and after that, pi-baker worked great. You could just have it as a separate process or a pre-processing check? Anyway, just my two cents. Awesome program btw.. Thank you for all your hard work. I will however try to make a new version of Pi-Baker that does a read-only check — I might have found a way to do that, just need the time to implement it.

Could you please set the password visibility to be off by default! Having clear text password fields is a big no-no. Any instance where my password can be visible fills me with instant district for the software. Thanks for everything else; works great and is nice and quick. For those that have a specific preference and would not want to toggle the checkbox each time they work with it. De plus, il permettra de prendre de prendre des […]. Just wanted to say thank you for a great application!

It worked perfectly for what I needed. You might consider adding that to your website. I will use your Amazon link on my next order. Thank you so much for leaving a nice comment! But … donations are optional and I very much appreciate the shopping gesture! Thanks you very much …! You will see a. I tried to use version 1. See also this comment.

Sorry for the inconvenience and I hope it resolves your issue. Partitioning actually needs this as well. But progress should definitely be noticeable after a second or Thanks Bill. I always appreciate it when users take the time to leave a nice feedback! Great tool! Thanks for sharing it! Thanks Ernie for the compliment and the tip! I have been using this for quite some time now and I never came across any problems until I installed El Capitan. Anybody else having this issue? This way I can see if there is something that has changed.

I have yet to setup a virtual machine to test El Capitan — unless you can tell me that you have had zero problems with El Capitan. I only noticed one problem so far with El Capitan Beta 4 and that is plug-in failure with uploading photos. Would you mind giving v1. It would be greatly appreciated. Nice work! And I think it should be called SIC. I have installed El Capitan, but have to admit that I have ran into a lot of unexpected problems even running it properly. Last night I installed the latest beta forgot whether it was beta 3 or 4. I will give it a try today! Not even with sudo. This appears to be an issue seen all over the web.

Well, finally managed to get a new release available which runs under El Capitan So I now included a more rugged code, with exceptions for This should be fixed now …. Other El Capitan users could maybe give 1. It played audio […].
