Im on 9.10. You are aware that 10.04 is still in the alpha testing right?? It isnt meant to be put on a machine that you need to be stable. It is NOT stable. Expect ALOT of bugs. Some of the architecture still isnt completed. I would strongly suggest you doing a fresh install of 9.10, at least until 10.04 goes into beta testing. The RC and final will be out in April.

I lost launcher on doc

"doc?" Did you mean "Dock?" If so, open System Preferences from the Apple Menu, then in the Personal section open Dock to change the settings for the behavior you want. (I'm trying to guess your desire from sparse information; I've never been very good at the telepathy/psychic business : ).)
The Dock is OS X's replacement for the Launcher. For those who have never seen Macintosh System 7, System 8, or OS 9 (from the 1990's), the Launcher was a window with single-click icons for opening applications or files. A file could be Launcher-enabled by dragging and dropping it onto the Launcher, or by placing an alias in the Launcher folder inside the System folder. If you put subfolders inside the Launcher folder, they became tabs in the Launcher. Its drawback was that a manual operation in the Finder was needed to hide or unhide it; otherwise it was always on the Desktop. This is in contrast to the Dock, which can be set to appear only when you mouse over its active region.
Ironically, Windows 8 appears to be going to a Launcher-like user interface - once again imitating Apple years afterward, although presumably with somewhat more sophistication.

Hi, my icon is missing from the dock, i can click on recent items and it re-appears. How do i keep it back on the dock as once i switch off its gone again. Thanks

I'm assuming by your use of the term "dock" you are using Mac OS X. You can keep an open application in the dock by right clicking(or control-clicking) its icon, selecting "options" and then "keep in dock"

Sytem preferences on mac 10.0 cheetah wont open

If you don't have the System Preferences in the Dock, just drag the icon from Finder under Applications to the Dock. On the other hand, if the icon is misbehaving in the Dock, then right click on the icon in the Dock and select Options>Remove from Dock and then do what I wrote in the first sentence.
If the above did not help you try this, go  to the dock, and, while holding down the "control key", select the System Preferences icon. This opened up a dialogue box with few choices...then choose "Quit". Then System Preference application  opened.

What is the best software on Mac to detect wireless network?

The simplest wifi detection software is already in Mac OS and is pretty easy to use. Open your System Preferences via your dock and then open the network connections icon. Then open your airport control. Look for the check box to put Airport control in the menu bar. After that, you can simply open the screen of your macbook and the antenna bars will show you available signal and if you click on the antenna icon (top right corner of screen), you can select the name of the available network... Pretty cool and you already own it!

Try unlocking them by clicking the lock icon, it would ask for admin password. Each read write permission to yourself.

If this doesn't work, try creating a new super user account on your machine and run Disk utility and ask it to repair your file permission. Launch terminal and type this.

find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;
find . -type f -exec chmod 777 {} \;

or you can try

cd /Volumes

this would display volume name.

chmod 0777 volumeName

New right-click menu item on Mac Os X

Add an Application to the Dock To simulate a right mouse button click while using a one-button mouse on a Mac, like to get a context sensitive menu for an object on the screen, hold down ctrl and click the mouse button while your mouse pointer is over the object.

If you enjoy the convenience of the Dock, you can make it even more useful by adding items to it you use regularly. Here, for example, you’ll find two ways to add one or more applications to your Dock.
Let’s say you’re currently using Keynote ’08, your favorite presentation software, and would like to keep it in the Dock at all times. Right-click on its icon in the Dock, and select Keep in Dock from the contextual menu that appears.
Or try this option. Open the Applications folder, grab Text Edit, and drag it to the Dock. Next time you want to use Text Edit, just click its icon in the Dock.
You can use this method to add multiple applications just as easily. In that open Applications folder, choose Calculator and Dictionary, two handy utilities, and drag both into the Dock.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

System preferences won't start when I try to open

This just indicates that the dock icon can not find the system preferences folder, just delete the icon from the dock. Then go to your applications folder find the system preferences and just drag it onto the dock that will fix it.

Mail doesn't work after upgrading to Leopard OS.

First, remove the Mail icon from the dock. Open up your Applications folder, find the Mail app, drag this into the dock (this automatically puts a link from the dock to the app) and try launching that. 9 times out of 10 this is all thats needed to fix this fairly common problem. Good luck

Unable to open backed-up files. Error code 10657

I got error code 10657 when I tried to open a file in Finder on the external drive that I had used for a Time Machine backup before I reformatted the hard drive of my MacBook. When I started Time Machine on the MacBook (with Leopard reinstalled) and went to the backup date that held the desired file, I was told that I needed to recreate the containing folder (or choose another location for the restore). I chose recreate the folder, and the restored file was available in the new folder without any further problem.

Canon 4200f - Mac OS-X compatability

This solution does not work. On MAc there is no way to use this scanner. Canon sucks!!! There was no info about supported os on the box. It is just unfair to sell products without providing drivers for users.
