NC freezes on file copy from network volume

When I mount a network volume with smb, and want to copy files to my local boot volume on the Mac, Nimble Commander 1.2.7 b3120 freezes (Mojave latest). After a force-quit, restarting NC doesn't work, but a reboot fixes the problem. Seems like something is wrong here. PS: tested this also with openi...

Re: Extraction?

It works with SHIFT+ENTER. The macOS default is that it will open with Archive Utility, but in my case archives are mapped to The Unarchiver. Extracted to folder named after the archive's original filename. The only addition would be to do it all in Nimble Commander, but I'm dealing with so many arc...

Re: macOS 10.15 Catalina

The true paths are actually (for example): /System/Volumes/Data/usr/local And I assume that macOS will firmlink this to the root of the read-only system volume, i.e. to the actual / … which is why I think that the default file structure you will see in Finder (and also in the shell) will be the same...

macOS 10.15 Catalina

Catalina will have a dedicated read-only system volume, and for that Apple have created a new filetype called firmlink . Users won't be able to create firmlinks, except for volume share mount points. Pretty interesting stuff. https://forums.developer.apple.com/message/363443 https://forums.developer...

Re: 3 ideas

It's not a weird convention. It's the only valid convention. At the core macOS is a Unix system, and Unix only knows copy and move when it comes to files. In the GUI it's slightly different from the direct approach with cp & mv, but still close enough: CMD-C copies the file path, and then you decide...

Re: Default file browser?

Sadly that solution doesn't work in every case. Some apps use AppleEvents or AppleScript or something, and actually call Finder specifically to reveal a path, and then Finder will activate. It's annoying. But in many scenarios it works fine. You could always try to change Finder's Info.plist in /Sys...

Re: Version 1.2.5 released

Unmounting of APFS-formatted DMGs stopped working all of a sudden. I tested it immediately after installation, and it worked fine, and now I have two DMG volumes that won't unmount. (One of them worked before.) Hmmm…

But otherwise: thank you for the update!

Re: [INFO] Mojave: UF_DATAVAULT / [Q] ACLs [DONE]

Another thing: Apple actually forces you to use the ACL method, if you want certain functionality. Way back when, maybe on Mac OS X 10.5. or 10.6 they removed the UNIX flag uunlnk (user no-unlink); it's still in the XNU source code, but commented out: https://github.com/opensource-apple/xnu/blob/mas...

Possible to search for extended attributes?

Is there a way to use Nimble Commander's Find dialog to search for extended attributes? For example, you have tagged files with "com.apple.metadata:Tag1" and "com.apple.metadata:Tag2" etc., and you want to quickly find the files with tags as xattr, or want to find all quarantined files in your home ...

Re: [INFO] Mojave: UF_DATAVAULT / [Q] ACLs [DONE]

I understand. Would be cool, though. :) And yeah, ACLs are actually pretty great. Apple uses them too for some system locations. I use them a lot on important folders, e.g. in my home directory like ~/Applications, ~/Developer, ~/Developer/Applications, ~/.cache, ~/.local, ~/.local/bin etc. It's a s...
