Nothing happens when I click on System Preferences in the apple icon.
You still there Ashik?
System Prefereces is not in Applications.
That app won't launch. It did download though. I tried launching it a few times.
Did you got the System Preferences from the zip file you have downloaded ? Also try restarting your Mac.
Yes. I got System preferences from zip file, but it will not launch. I'm restarting Mac.
I don't have com.apple.systempreferences.plist file.
Nope. I have this:
But no com.apple.systempreference.plist
There is supposed to be a plist file. Open Terminal application from Applications > Utilities folder. Then run the following commandcd ~/Library/Preferences/
sudo rm --f com.apple.systempreferences.plist
Any errors ?
No errors just says no such file or directory.
I did find com.apple.systempreferences.plist in my users folder and deleted it from there though.
No. I get this:
The application system preferences 2 quit unexpectedly.
Mac OS X and other applications are not affected.
Click relauch to launch the application again. Click repor to see details or send a report to Apple.
I have ignored, reported and relaunched.
This was the app you had me download from mediafire. It will not launch. I have redownloaded it three times.
It is not there or any where.
I also deleted the app you had me download.
Doing it now.
OK. I see system preferences now. Hurrah!
it took me a minute to get back on Internet b/c my
firefox icon is no longer on dock. There is a question mark.
Do you know how to get that back?
There is no option when you right click and dragging to dock doesn't work.
Yep. That worked. My printer does not work now, however.
I'm no longer at that computer, but I will try it later today.
Thanks. You were a huge help.
