10.5: Disable Spotlight completely
Authored by: mattthew on Apr 07, '09 09:23:43PM

Though I don't like spotlight and I don't want it in my menu bar, I had to re-enable it because Microsoft Entourage's search function is build on spotlight and I need to be able to search my emails.

I found that the above commands worked to re-enable it, however when I first tried to run them, I go the error message "dubious ownership". After some search around, I figured that when I moved the file from the original directories, the ownership got changed. To fix it, I had to enter the command:

sudo chown root:wheel [file path]
