    Good day Philmug members!

    Can someone help me out on this, im really having a difficult time installing the smackbook on my leopard... Im a complete newbie here. I saw what smackbook can do to my Mac (Im using the Black Macbook 2.4 Ghz, 2 GB RAM, 250 GB if HD) so I decided to download it, but I'm running into some few problems...

    The website: http://smackleopard.blogspot.com/ says:
    (Please see my comments in red font)

    All you need:

    1. smackleopard.command

    Download here(14/03/2008 Updated Link)

    My Comment:
    - When I downloaded the smackleopard.command from the link, it gave me the "smackleopard.command.pl". Did I get the right file? or should I rename it to "smackbook.command"?

    2. AMSTracker
    Amit Singh's site:
    http://www.osxbook.com/software/sms/amstracker/

    Put AMSTracker in same directory as smackleopard.command.

    My Comment:
    - When he said "...Put AMSTracker in same directory..." should I create a new folder and drag the smackleopard.command together with the AMSTracker.dmg file? How to put the file in the same directory?...sorry newbie here

    Open Terminal

    Change permisson on smackleopard.command:


    To change the script's permission so that it becomes excutable, you'll need to type the following under Terminal:

    chmod +x smackleopard.command

    You can find Terminal under Applications->Utilities

    If you could not successfully run this:
    chmod +x smackleopard.command

    please make sure you have the privilege to chmod. Try 'su' first to become a superuser (your password will be asked) or use sudo chomod instead.

    (Updated on 4th Dec)



    My Comment:
    - When I type the "chmod +x smackleopard.command" in the Terminal, the error is "...No such path or directory..." something like that (Can't remember the exact error, but it tells me that it can't find the path or directory). The sudo chomod didn't work, I also tried switching to superuser and it is still the same thing.

    Run it. (./smackleopard.command)

    My Comment:
    - How will I run it? Is there any command? Which one will I click to run the program?

    Enjoy!!!


    I think need a step by step instructions on how to do it... Can someone please help? Thank you so much. :rolleyes:

    i agree. they might think that there is something wrong with your machine. just like an old television that my grandpa used to smack at its side when the screen is not good. just my two cents.

    Not exactly what the engineers at Apple had in mind when they added the sudden motion sensor. :)

    I already installed and ran this is my wife's macbook... I followed a tutorial from youtube and it was fun the first few smacks but then we kinda got tired of it. If you close terminal then you won't be able to "smack it" around anymore. It's just a trick for a couple of laughs. Nothing serious... :)
