  1. Hi JSKVADV, have you tried what @eightygrit explained in the post before yours?
  2. You might be able to get a copy of the workflow from https://github.com/hzlzh/AlfredWorkflow.com/tree/master/Downloads/Workflows but note that it has not been updated since 2013 and might not work correctly anymore.
  3. Hi Andrew, Alfred's fear of graves is gone indeed, thanks! You might want to fix the heading of this topic (2.2 -> 2.4).
  4. Improving file actions and better feedback? - Sounds great! Thanks.
  5. Hello Alfred, I gather you like your graves closed and I can understand that. But when trying to move files I would prefer it to work even for ones with grave accents in their name. Or at least let me know that you do not want to move such files. Thanks. Regards, Ricco Here is what Console has about that: 13.07.14 13:51:02,379 [0x0-0x22022].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2: sh: bad substitution: no closing "`" in `s Twist Again.mp3"} 13.07.14 13:51:02,379 [0x0-0x22022].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2: move filenames to theDestinationFolder --with replacing 13.07.14 13:51:02,379 [0x0-0x22022].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2: end tell
  6. Hi thiagoaraujos, I was looking for exactly the same and found a solution in Ted's Menu Bar Search workflow. Since each applicable OSX service has a menu item, this works very well. Make sure to download the latest version from github. I use it mostly for text based services and iTunes scripts. Rico
  7. Hey Carlos, thanks for this great update to an incredible useful workflow! I have not tried the new to-do and reminder features, since I do not use them in Evernote either. But to be able to open a note's URL is very nice. I was taken aback finding the sync feature not working. Nothing was happening and I found following message in the Console: .com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2: execution error: The variable synchronize is not defined. (-2753) This could be caused by having renamed the Evernote application, I thought. And sure enough, triggering the sync works when using the bundle identifier. tell application id "com.evernote.Evernote" to synchronize So may I suggest using the bundle ID "com.evernote.Evernote", instead of the name? This way the Apple Scripts will work no matter the app's actual name. Ricco
  8. While getting back into learning Spanish I was looking for a way to make word research easier. For every new word I want to learn I am looking for Visual representation of the word (Google Images) Definition of the word in Spanish (WordReference) Audio recording of pronunciation (Forvo) The word in context and example sentences (Linguee) Translation(s) of the word (WordReference/Leo) Conjugation if the word is a verb (WordReference) Frankly, to open all these pages manually, click around to get to the language/section I want and finally enter my word is a pain in the butt. And it might have been one reason I stopped learning regularly... Alfred to the rescue! So I made my first workflow. It is quite simple: Type keyword 'esw' followed by the word you are looking for and it queries the aforementioned pages on separate tabs in the default browser. Translations are not opened by this workflow. Usually I use a link on the definition site or the Leo Translate workflow by psistorm for that. There is a second keyword 'esc' for researching the conjugation of the specified verb. That way I get the information I want to put into Anki with a few keystrokes and can spend my time actually learning the language. If you are interested in the workflow download it here. The workflow was inspired by this post of Gabriel Wyner on Tower of Babelfish. If you are learning a foreign language I highly recommend checking out this website! There is a wealth of information about methodology, resources and lots more. He has a Pastepin with useful links for a lot of other languages, which gets mentioned in the post linked above. They are intended for iMacros but can be used with Alfred, too. So if you want to adjust my workflow for another language, chances are he has the links you need. Side note on Google Images: If you are wondering why I use the Basic Mode of Google Images within Google Translate I would like to refer you to this post on Tower of Babelfish. In short: More often than not you will get images and matching example sentences at the same time - even for abstract or functional words. Screenshot
  9. Thanks, Rodger! Everything is displayed correctly now.
  10. After editing mymac.txt, the 'System' displays correctly, thanks. In Europe we use comma as decimal mark, that's why the processor speed is displayed like that - perfectly fine. I never noticed the 'About this Mac' window uses another decimal mark... Anyway, it is stored with comma in hardware.txt, too. No RAM type, good catch! My memory.txt looks like this: Memory: Memory Slots: ECC: Disabled BANK 0/DIMM0: Size: 2 GB Type: DDR2 SDRAM Speed: 667 MHz Status: OK Manufacturer: 0x0000000000000000 Part Number: 0x323034383733363735305320202020202020 Serial Number: 0x00000000 BANK 1/DIMM1: Size: 2 GB Type: DDR2 SDRAM Speed: 667 MHz Status: OK Manufacturer: 0x0000000000000000 Part Number: 0x323034383733363735305320202020202020 Serial Number: 0x00000000
  11. No worries, there is no rush. Making something work universally is not easy without access to a lot of different system configurations. We will figure it out. If you are talking about the workflow - it works, even the uptime is displayed correctly. Just 'System' is missing and on trying to open support/spec site I end up at http://www.apple.com/support/. Same root cause for both, I guess. If you meant the actual 'About this Mac' window - you could cycle through OS X version, build and serial number. Maybe you could implement a fallback to the old method of determining the readable name for a system? Let me know if you need more information or how I can help. My com.apple.SystemProfiler.plist only sports the following keys (with corresponding data of course): <key>NSNavBrowserPreferedColumnContentWidth</key> <key>NSNavLastRootDirectory</key> <key>NSNavPanelExpandedSizeForSaveMode</key> <key>NSTableView Columns Contents</key> <key>NSTableView Hidden Columns Contents</key> <key>NSTableView Sort Ordering Contents</key> <key>NSWindow Frame SystemProfile</key>
  12. Hey, your official release, nice! I like the information about resolution you added to graphics. It works well on my machine except for not showing the 'System' properly - no text and no icon. mymac.txt is empty and there is no mymac.png I guess my Snow Leopard is getting really old. Don't worry about my issues, I ordered OS X Lion yesterday 17.04.13 22:18:55 [0x0-0x44044].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[305] Domain com.apple.SystemProfiler.plist does not exist 17.04.13 22:18:56 [0x0-0x44044].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[305] Error 9: cannot perform functions on files because no destination dir was specified 17.04.13 22:18:56 [0x0-0x44044].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[305] Try 'sips --help' for help using this tool 17.04.13 22:18:56 [0x0-0x44044].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[305] cat: SPDisplaysDataType: No such file or directory 17.04.13 22:18:56 [0x0-0x44044].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[305] cat: SPDisplaysDataType: No such file or directory 17.04.13 22:18:56 [0x0-0x44044].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[305] /bin/bash: line 118: [: ==: unary operator expected 17.04.13 22:18:56 [0x0-0x44044].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[305] /bin/bash: line 122: [: ==: unary operator expected 17.04.13 22:18:56 [0x0-0x44044].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[305] /bin/bash: line 126: [: ==: unary operator expected 17.04.13 22:19:33 [0x0-0x44044].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[305] /bin/bash: line 15: [: too many arguments I've got com.apple.SystemProfiler.plist in ~/Library/Preferences but the content did not look like you could use it for what you are doing... As for the issue of Scott and Jonathan: They might not use the latest version of Alfred.
  13. Hehe. atm.txt looks fine to me, but who knows... Go for it!
  14. Yep. I downloaded it again to make sure - that's the version I am using.
  15. To follow up on the 'uptime' issue - when running for more than an hour (e.g. 3 hours and 37 minutes) it looks like this: The relevant line in atm.txt is: Time since boot: 3:37
  16. Well, I don't know any Perl, thus I fiddled with the script until it was working with a hotkey. If you would include a hotkey in your workflow, any potential user could benefit from this option out of the box. And since the actual hotkey will not travel with the workflow, everybody can set up their own or just leave it deactivated. I bet your solution would be much cleaner than my attempt
  17. Hey Gaetano, I like this workflow best for the additional information. Sometimes I need them at a glance and this is nice. For when I just want to toggle WiFi, I added a hotkey and adjusted the script accordingly. Now it's perfect Thanks, Ricco
  18. I hear you, man. Since I cannot pm in this forum, yet, I sent a message via deviantart...
  19. Hey Rodger, thanks for the quick update and pointing out the lines regarding a second graphics card! My processor is displayed correctly with the new version. Processor speed was missing due to missing 'print' keyword in line 5 of the script filter, just to let you know. Sneaky paste errors... I'll send the atm.txt via PN.
  20. The choice of hardware icons in V03 is nice. Now my MacBook shows up correctly. I noticed some minor issues however: Uptime shows the word 'minutes' twice, in version 2 it was displayed correctly as '35 minutes' A line for the second graphics card is always displayed, even if I don't have one Processor description is one word short: I have a 'Core 2 Duo' but it is displayed as 'Core 2' (in version 2 of workflow, too) Is there some way around these quirks?
  21. This workflow sounds great. Unfortunately it does not work for me. Regardless of what I enter as query after the keyword - nothing happens. Any suggestions? I looked for error messages in console and found this, maybe it helps... 06.04.13 19:38:29 [0x0-0x23023].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[189] Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 3, in <module> File "movies_helper.py", line 43, in helper return display_search_results(query) File "movies_helper.py", line 48, in display_search_results results = imdb.search(query) File "imdb.py", line 8, in search contents = json_at_url(url) File "imdb.py", line 27, in json_at_url contents = contents_of_url(url) File "imdb.py", line 36, in contents_of_url request = urllib2.urlopen(url) File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 124, in urlopen return _opener.open(url, data, timeout) File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 389, in open response = meth(req, response) File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 502, in http_response 'http', request, response, code, msg, hdrs) File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 427, in error return self._call_chain(*args) File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 361, in _call_chain result = func(*args) File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 510, in http_error_default raise HTTPError(req.get_full_url(), code, msg, hdrs, fp) urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 403: Forbidden
  22. Thanks for the update - it's working great on my machine with 3 digit serial. That is, after adding the missing line break before 'if' in the 'ctrl' script
  23. Hmm, it was working fine at first but seems to do nothing since I moved the backup to NAS: It hangs on checking status and when I choose to start/stop a backup, the notification appears immediately but nothing actually happens. Edit: Well, I thought it worked once, but the 'tmutil' command seems to be missing in Snow Leopard. Is there an alternative for 'tmutil'? 07.04.13 16:56:35 [0x0-0x2a02a].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[216] -e:38: command not found: tmutil status 07.04.13 16:56:35 [0x0-0x2a02a].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[216] -e:22: undefined method `start_with?' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
  24. This issue was bugging me for a while, too. Thanks for the fix, Andrew!
  25. Hey Rodger, this is a great workflow! I had to modify it to use the last 3 digits of my serial number, but that's an easy fix with your instructions above. After doing this in the script filter as well as both bash scripts, even the links to specification site and hardware support work. I have to agree, this is a clever shortcut! As I don't know much about scripting or alike I can't help you with that. But I think it works nicely. Thanks for your effort, Ricco
