Question about Apple OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion

1 Answer

Can't open PowerPC Excel files in Mountain Lion. I only have a couple of important files. Is there free software I can use to open/convert them?

I'd like to download Neo Ofice or Libre Office but have seen many complaints about these. And I'm not sure if that will be the solution, anyway. Thank you

SOURCE: No longer able to access saved Excel files after installing Mountain Lion on my Mac!

These ares more of a work around, but you can get a top notch open source free word processor at OpenOffice.org. Fully compatible with Microsoft.

Or, if you have a MS SkyDrive account. It will open MS Office docs that are uploads and stored there. This the new MS office will be intergrated. Clo

Mountain Lion and Lion do not recognize anything that was created under the power pc architecture. If you're connecting an older drive with power pc programs (G5 and before), then you'll have problems.

How to upgrade from mac os x 10.4.11 to a higher version


If your computer has OS X 10.4 installed on it, it's likely that you have a PowerPC processor. Apple used these for years before switching to Intel processors in 2006. The highest version of OS X that you'll be able to run on a PowerPC Mac is 10.5 (Leopard). You will not be able to install Snow Leopard, Lion, or Mountain Lion.

Easy way to check if you have PowerPC or Intel is by clicking on "About This Mac" in the Apple menu (top left of your screen).

I need a driver for my new Mountain Lion, Mac, to run the 9800XL


Microtek sent me this link to ScanPotter 1.07:
http://support.microtek.com/downloads/drv_specific.phtml?slct_os=9&prod=139&bymdlnme=1

It's not the same ScanWizard Pro software that used to work on my PowerPC G5 running OSX 10.5 Leopard, but at least it enables me to use my ScanMaker 9800XL with my late 2011 17" MacBookPro and OSX 10.8.2 Mountain Lion. Get it, it works!

What are the common problems with Apple OSX Mountain Lion?


Hello Patrick,

The most common problems I've experienced with Mountain Lion are the following:
  • Reduced battery life. I've noticed about an hour to an hour and a half cut off from my battery life of my Macbook Pro. I'm not sure if this applies to you since you have a Macbook Air, but my recommendation is to try a reinstall if you experience battery problems and turn off some of the extra features like Twitter integration and iCloud when you're not using them.
  • Safari is crashing. Safari is a browser that used to have little respect but now has actually gotten pretty decent. However, with Mountain Lion it actually crashes a lot more than usual. I don't have a fix for it offhand, but I would recommend just using Chrome (which I use anyways) or Firefox. And stay away from Explorer!
  • Free upgrades to Mountain Lion. When I got my free upgrade to Mountain Lion (if you purchased a Mac after June 11, 2012 you can get one too) it took Apple about 5 days to upgrade me to Mountain Lion. This is a super low priority problem, but it's still something I hope they're working on.
  • Notes synchronization. I have answered this on FixYa already, you can find it on the site.

Best of luck.
