Frontrow on other Macs review

Recommended Posts

Even on the new iMacs, Front Row is little more than a "terminal" to the other programs. It functions the same on any Mac as it does on the iMac, minus the remote of course.

 

That said, it's nice, but it is very simple. Just a controller.

lol, ya and who knows if they ever will release it. Honestly, if you dont do it right away, the only way they will do it later is if everyone pressures them alot.ALOT.

Help!

I need help deleting Front Row.

I installed it as per the instructions on The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW) site.

 

I've now undone everything in the instructions (including reinstatin the original BezelServices.framework file in the system folder).

 

But I can't delete Front Row!

I get a message saying that it's 'open' and can't be moved to the Trash. I have deleted it as a login item.

 

Can anyone help!?

 

Thanks.

what you can try doing is by first logging in to the console instead of your profile. you can do this by making sure your initial login screen has the name box and password box (go into the user prefs. in sys. prefs.). once you log out, in the name box type in ">console" (without the quotes) and no password and hit enter. then you will be put into a full screen terminal mode. then type in your login name and password. once you are logged in, type in the command "sudo -s" then go to the directories of the files you want to delete by typing in "rm -rf /foldername/nextfoldernameetc/filename" (continue with all the files/folders you want to delete) then you may get something like "are you sure" and just type in "yes", if not then its deleted anyway. once you are all done, type in "exit" to exit out of sudo mode the type in "logout" and you will plop back into the login screen.

 

the reason why you have to login through the >console is because this will prevent the file you are trying to delete from loading when you login to your profile. that is why it wont let you delete it-- its in use.

 

if you are having trouble, PM me.
