10.5: Set Help Viewer windows to non-floating mode
Authored by: luigi193 on Jun 03, '08 07:43:01AM
This is an AWESOME hint, I hate the way the Leopard help viewer works...
That second command didn't work...
I only dabble in UNIXY stuff, and just started learning it... but I think, unless i'm wrong, you need a "backslash space" thingy after help and before viewer right?
 i=/System/Library/CoreServices/Help\ Viewer.app/Contents/Info.plist
sudo defaults write "${i%.plist}" LSUIElement 0
sudo chmod 644 "$i"
I think thats right... but if theres another way I'm sorry...

The other way is to put quotes around the application name...

"Help Viewer.app"

All worked OK for me.

The backslash was indeed mangled during the Hint submission.

Hopefully, robg will certainly correct it :-)

I love Geeklog. I love Geeklog. I love Geeklog. I love Geeklog.

OK, Geeklog's got its strong points, but dealing with special characters isn't one of them :). Supposedly this is greatly improved in 1.5, which is due out very soon now.

The missing backslash has been restored. Sorry about that.
