I've mistakenly replaced info.plist in the stickies.app package and now Stickies wont open and the icon has been replaced with something different (see below).

Is there a way to repair Stickes or re-install it without having to reinstall Mountain Lion?

 

 

 

 

This is the content of the file I replaced info.plist with:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

<plist version="1.0">

<dict>

          <key>CFBundleName</key>

          <string>Stickies</string>

</dict>

</plist>

    If you have a backup, have you tried to restore the .plist?

    I have no idea if this will work, but above is the info.plist from Stickies. Maybe you can copy it and put it in place.

    If you go to the web page below and then go to the bottom of the page, you can download a stickies icon to replace the generic version if you want to. When I clicked on the download, it opened in Preview, and I was able to copy one and paste it into a "Get Info" for a folder.

    Not perfect.

     

    Now about a backup...............

     

    If you mark this as "Solved", it will appear in the "More Like This" box (top right) and maybe it can help someone else.

    It is gone for reasons beyond me. Normally, it is right below the "Bookmarked By." Oh well. Glad you got everything sorted out.
