I'm looking for a way to create a universal (script) file with these commands. I want to be able to run the file on a Mac just by double-clicking on it or dragging the file over the Terminal icon. Impossible for me to open Dropbox in Mac OS X 10.6.8. On a Mac OS X computer you can double click on the macosxlauncher.dmg file inside of the bin directory. This is a disk image. Drag the NetBeansLauncher from the expanded disk image back into the bin directory. Now double click on the NetBeansLauncher. Now to run your batch file, you just need to either specify the full path to the batch file, or if you are already in the directory where it is located, you can type./batchscript. Note that you have to put the “./” in front of your filename, in order to tell Terminal to look for the file in the current directory. BatChmod is a utility for manipulating file and folder privileges in Mac OS X. It allows the manipulation of ownership as well as the privileges associated to the Owner, Group or others. It can also unlock files in order to apply those privileges and finally, it can remove any ACLs added to a folder or file under Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or better.
Change permissions without the Terminal

If none of this makes sense to you, maybe BatChmod is not for you 🙂 It has the potential to mangle your files if you do not know what you are doing. ESPECIALLY if you change the permission of your whole disk at once… just don’t do that.
BatChmod can also give you back access to locked files, folders or disks. If something is locked, it can unlock it. If you no longer have permissions to files or folders, change the permissions back.
Sometimes, a whole hard disk can become inaccessible or locked and often, BatChmod can unlock those too!
If you moved a folder or files from another machine or another user on your machine, BatChmod can help set you up as their rightful owner.
Ah the beauty of a nice clean Trashcan on your Desktop. How annoying when you cannot empty it because some files are thought to be in use by the Finder! BatChmod offers a nice “Force Empty Trash” menu when you click on its icon or when you go to the BatChmod Menu when you run it. Quick and simple and you will never see those files again.
If you like BatChmod and use it, and if you would like to help pay for the bandwidth required to host the files which are in great demand, you are welcome to donate using the button below:
