  • Can you install a linux terminal in mac os big sur ??

  • I downloaded wine to get games on mac but when i press the plus button nothing happens.
    Make sure youve deleted your current app of the wineskin mod before doing this: Firstly to do this youll need to download homebrew to your computer (how to do this is shown immediately on their website - https://brew.sh/ ), youll be doing this in the terminal (found in the utilities folder inside applications). As its installing youll find close to the end it will prompt you to run another line of code, make sure you dont miss this, just do as it says. After thats done you can run the "brew install..." line found in the wineskin README.md, and it should work through it, after its finished it will be downloaded as an app in your applications folder - should hopefully work from there.
  • Automating macOS setup
    I don't have much experience managing macOS in a professional setting (mostly just writing automation one-liners). But a simple way to automate setup would be to create a GitHub repo and include the setup script (below) and the company wallpaper. There are a LOT of casks (macOS native applications) and formulae (command line apps, built from source), so check Homebrew for apps you want to install.

  • Is linux environment similar to Mac environment?

    Brew is a good starting place. It is a package manager like apt. Then you can instal GNU coreutils, make, etc. Many utilities that come with macOS are from 2004 or even older due to licensing. If you want to use bash, install the GNU version, append /usr/local/bin/bash to sudo nano /etc/shells then change the default shell: chsh -s /usr/local/bin/bash

    reddit.com/r/Dashlane | 2021-10-10
    Can't help you with the 2FA problem in the web extension, but you can still download the (Mac) desktop app from Homebrew (brew.sh, brew install --cask dashlane).

    Even better, Apparency and Suspicious Package for analyzing exactly what you downloaded. If you know how to use command line, Homebrew is the easiest, simplest, and probably safest way to get something installed.
