Suicide ?? :(

How about installing the developer tools, Harry?

Harry Cover 12-15-2005 01:47 PM

No problem.
You mean Xcode ?

dnanian 12-15-2005 01:56 PM

Yes, the developer tools that come with the OS.

Harry Cover 12-15-2005 02:07 PM

OK, Dave.
And then...

dnanian 12-15-2005 02:09 PM

Run your backup again.

Harry Cover 12-15-2005 05:55 PM

Same bad result (icon lost).

OK. Sorry, Harry: I don't know what to tell you at this point... it should work, if you've got it set up right, but I'm at a loss to know what you've done wrong...

Harry Cover 12-15-2005 06:25 PM

I am sure the problem comes from the location or the name of files/folders:

"iMac G5" is the master HD whiche is copied to Backup HD.
"parents" is a user name.
Please, check the locations, and the names.

Are names correct in the set_icon script ?

Script file:
"/Volumes/iMac G5/Users/parents/set_icon"

Icon file:
"/Volumes/iMac G5/Users/parents/Volume Icons/Backup.VolumeIcon.icns"

dnanian 12-15-2005 09:13 PM

As long as you're logged in as "parents", that all seems right to me, unless the destination is really named "Backup HD" as opposed to "Backup". If so, the icon file would have to be called "Backup HD.VolumeIcon.icns".

Harry Cover 12-16-2005 12:30 AM

No problem here, as far as "Backup" HD name is concerned.

Do we resign ? :(

Could AppleScript be another solution ? :rolleyes:

Feature request:
Could this icon conservation be a new feature of SD next release ? :cool:

dnanian 12-16-2005 12:39 AM

Sorry, Harry. I honestly don't know what else to suggest.

Harry Cover 12-16-2005 12:41 AM

Thanks a lot anyway, Dave.

Sincerely yours.

dnanian 12-16-2005 09:41 AM

I'm sorry I wasn't able to figure out what's wrong here, Harry.
