Keyboard problem

  • Stef Vanstiphout

    I have this particular problem: On one of my computers, the "A" and "Q" keys are not working, so I can't type applejack in single user mode. Is there another way to start the program; This Mac is too old to have it's keyboard replaced. I already tried to change the "" script to "" from a root account, but the command is not understood. Do I have to rename other files as well?

    If you've renamed the script from to in /var/root/Library/Scripts, then you can do this.

    1. Restart into single user mode.
    2. Instead of simply typing applejack, type

    Alternatively, instead of renaming the script itself, you could change the alias that is created in /var/root/.profile.

    change the line 'alias applejack=/var/root..... etc' to be 'alias upplejuck=/var/root....'
    (or change it to whatever you want), ssssss if you prefer.
