Help wanted and needed: Bugs with Mac's OS X Yosemite

Yosemite thunderstorm

I think most people bump over "my first impression of Yosemite"on my blog and look for help with problems there. In the meantime I have collected so much help and questions there that I would like to start a new blog post that only serves to describe problems that one has with Mac OS X 10.10 and to offer solutions.

Yosemite thunderstorm

Dark clouds over Yosemite ... ;-)

The ulterior motive is: You send me your problem description and I publish what I think / find or get tips from others. You can also use the comment function.

I'll start right away with a message that arrived today (please always keep in mind: This is ONLY about the combination with OS X Yosemite!):

Photoshop CS5 crashes while printing and closes completely

The reader who contacted me by phone today uses Photoshop CS5 with one (or more?) Large format printers for textile finishing. The problem is that the program closes completely after the print job has been sent and you are no longer able to print anything.

My ideas about it were

  • delete the Photoshop files under Library / Application-Support / or Library / Preferences
  • To completely reinstall Adobe CS5
  • Reinstall printer driver

Unfortunately, the reader has already tried all of this, but it was unsuccessful. :(

WLAN / Wifi problems after Yosemite update

There have been quite a few reports from people who have had problems with losing their WiFi connection since using Yosemite (see here at Apple Talk). There are theories as to what causes this to happen Airdrop must be sought. Accordingly, one solution could be to deactivate Airdrop when it is not needed. The developer Mario Ciabarra wrote an article about this with background information for the techies. However, I would just like to present his solution here, which can be reversibly tested in any case if you are also struggling with the WLAN. To do this, enter the following command into the terminal:

 sudo ifconfig awdl0 down

To undo the whole thing, use this command:

sudo ifconfig awdl0 up

Do you also have a Yosemite problem?

Then send it to me and I will publish it here. You are also welcome to use the comment function and have updates sent to you automatically.


Do you like my blog? Then I would be happy to receive a short review on Google. Easy leave something here for a moment - that would be great, thank you!
