10.4: Install a Disk Image preferences panel
Authored by: datawrangler on May 23, '05 09:28:28AM

An even easier method:

Use Spotlight to search for .prefPane. The DiskImages.prefPane will show up in the results list. Double-click it. System Preferences will open and ask you if you'd like to install it. Ta-daaa!

i just tried to use Spotlight to search for ".prefPane". i even tried searching for "DiskImages.prefPane". both searches showed no results for the DiskImages prefPane. in fact, the only thing that came close was a few prefPane preference files. :/

i thought that Spotlight didn't search in the System folder? or is my Spotlight just broken?

Spotlight can't find it but locate can. First, manually update the locate database
sudo /usr/libexec/locate.updatedb
Next, find the prefsPane
locate *.prefPane
- the * indicates a wildcard and will search for any files that have .prefPane appended to the end.

Now, how exactly do I make Spotlight index my entire HD and not evade the Library and System folders?
