Magic keyboard doesn't work don't perfectly with Mac-mini mid 2011

I am running the latest version of El Capitan (OS 10.11)

The system version: OS X 10.11 (15A279b)
Kernel version: Darwin 15.0.0
Apple Bluetooth software: 4.4.0f4 16320

These correspond to the requirements of Magic Keyboard (Mac computer compatible Bluetooth with v10.11 OS X or later) according to Apple documentation official

If I followed the instructions to connect the keyboard up via Thunderbolt, the keyboard works partially. I can type via Bluetooth.

However, I can't use the volume buttons to control the sound. When I try to assign or reassign the buttons, I discovered that I can't 'see' the keyboard in Control Panel.

So, I find it very strange and of course disappointing. I can use Bluetooth, but not make the best use of the characteristics of the material. So sorry to say this, but it feels more like Linux where drivers regularly can make full use of the material and do not like Apple where it should all be integrated from top to bottom.

The ideas or support would be appreciated.


PS I have the same problem with the new Magic Trackpad. So it's more than 200 euros for the minimum functions


If I followed the instructions to connect the keyboard up via Thunderbolt,

It be USB to lightning, Thunderbolt.

Check that this block is not checked. You can also try to check it out and then unchecking it.

PS You should also upgrade to the current version of El Capitan, 10.11.2, build 15 c 50. Updates cover a lot of previous bugs and problems. "15A279b" is not the latest version.

  • Customer light HP t5325 doesn't work don't not with VMware View 5


    I recently got a slim Pro HP t5325 customer for testing with VMware view 5. I ve the thin client to the latest firmware update: & cc = us & prodTypeId = 12454 & prodSeriesId = 4063703 & prodNameId = 4063704 & swEnvOID = 4030 & swLang = 13 & mode = 2 & taskId = 135 & swItem = vc-99080-1)

    who has the view 4.6 customer and according to the VMware compatibility list:

    It should work with view 5. But when I try to launch the client and connect to your desktop from view, he asks just a super quick message (which I don't see) and then it brands the "active" session, but it doesn't open anything . View 5 Client on my laptop works very well and I m able to access the same desktop VM.

    My current setup is:

    • vCenter server 5
    • ESXi5
    • VMware View 5

    What Miss me? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you!



    I had the same problem this week. He is not related to view 5, same problem exists also with 4.6.

    The problem seems to be that when you try to open the connection, the client calls a /usr/bin/ script and this script does NOT run with user privileges? However, if you switch to admin and then open the connection this script works well. You can test it by opening the X terminal in the thin client, then the su user and try to run the script manually /usr/bin/ start at 0 and you will get a prompt for sudo.

    I tried to add the useraccount 'user' in/etc/sudoers and allow that user rights sudo for view_client and programs. Did not help

    If you add the user 'user' to the root group, connection opens fine but then you let the open thin client for the standard user to mess with.

    Quite a bug in the software? They don't do any test before releasing these?

  • Scan to PDF doesn't work don't not with J4680 all-in-One

    I can't get the scan to searchable PDF (PDF and PDF) file to work as expected with my new J4680.

    It works very well with other formats (TIF, JPG, etc.), but not with the PDF.

    It scans well request for additional pages correctly, and then try to create the PDF file. This is the process fails.

    An empty PDF file (size 0) is created and it fails with an error message:

    unexpected error, click OK to close the program, and perform the following steps:

    -Restart the program; -start the computer and try again. -Reinstall the software and try again

    8, [(6, 261,-2147417851)]

    (freely translated from the German - except for the error number ;-)

    Of course, none of the suggestions above, or any combination of these, or restart the printer works. Any ideas?

    Thanks, the problem is resolved for now.

    Suppot of HP was somehow in the right direction. I uninstalled the drivers all (!) of the 'old' hardware HP (6110 OfficeJect, ScanJet,...), reinstalled the J4680 completely and from there everything worked.

    Internal error (WIN XP) seems to be related to a conflict with older drivers.

    I hope this help if someone having similar problems.

    Thanks again,

    You can make a color hex "pipette" very fast easy on a Mac.

    First of all, download this:


    It adds the functionality of hexadecimal color to ColorPicker.

    Then open the Script Editor and enter the two words: choose color

    Save as an application (this creates a stand alone ColorPicker).


    Select the mirror of ColorPicker icon, the cursor and click anywhere to get a hexadecimal color value.

    I think that there is probably a way to make this app always float. If someone could put the AppleScript for this, I would be very happy.

    I hope this helps.

  • Help! Magic wand doesn't work do not! (Issue of Photoshop CS4)

    I tried so hard this problem for a few weeks. I have CS4 and I am unable to use the wand as it used to work. It allows to select like this:

    Now, he chooses like this:

    And I have no idea what I did to cause this, but I have tried so many different things. I checked the color selector settings, and it is always set to the sample point and STILL does. I've checked and unchecked all anti-aliasing, contiguous and sample boxes of diapers and make all possible combinations of the three. I have set the level of tolerance to multiple numbers and it does not affect the fact that he chooses like this. Indeed, define tolerance and anti-aliasing or contiguous verification do NOT affect how he selects, and it will always choose like that. I found that it is the selection of EACH color/line created, regardless of the opacity of the line. I have reset the tool several times, return the switch to color several times and reset all the tools several times. No effect.

    I tried on Tumblr AND on deviantART for assistance and have repeatedly asked Google since rose and saw several fixes for similar problems (none of them exactly like that, as far as I could tell) and none of these things helped my problem. I even went in the AppData file and deleted the .psp file, as suggested by a forum that I had seen.

    Nothing I help. I changed the autour settings in Photoshop, and it does not seem to affect what anyone. I really need to use the magic wand for my work tool, to select shapes in the individual layers, so that I can their shadow. Another problem with the selection, it's everything I select is an alias, despite the box of "smoothing" under audit. It looks like the following:

    When he used to look more like this:

    I realize that I can use the "Select pixels" option that appears when I right click on a layer, and it produces the same effect ONCE had the magic wand tool, but I'm used to the use of the wand. I will use the option of selection of pixels for now, but I would really like to fix this... Help, anyone? Thank you.

    I think that the magic wand tool is working properly, but you missed the correct setting for what you want to do.

    Looks like you have a white background and a semi transparent layer that is painted a single color, pure black I suppose, at different opacities.

    If the MWT is not set to ' sample all layers ' and is used on the semi black layer transparent then he won't see the grays resulting from the merger of the layer with the background. He will see each pixel as completely transparent or black simply. The behavior that you don't want.

    If the MWT is set on "sample all layers" then she'll see grays resulting from a mix the layers and tolerance control will be effective. The behavior that you don't want.
