Currently Being ModeratedDec 14, 2008 8:44 PM (in response to helfire234)To see inside an application package select the application then CTRL- or RIGHT-click and select Show package contents from the contextual menu. You can navigate through the application package's content. It's unlikely you will find anything useful there.
To see invisible files open the Terminal application in your Utilities folder and at the command line prompt enter or paste the following command then press RETURN:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
To turn off the display of invisible files substitute FALSE for TRUE in the same command line.
Invisible files are invisible for a reason - to hide them from the prying eyes of novice users and ignorant tech support people. Perhaps it would be more helpful if you could detail the problem you are having.Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MacBook Pro C2D 2.33 Ghz; MacBook Pro 2.16 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4), Intel iMac C2D 17 "; MacBook 2.0 Ghz; 30 GB iPod Video (Black); iPod Nano 2 GB

2: when i pasted your code into Terminal and hit enter, it just went to the next line, it didn't change anything as far as i could tell.
3: Unless you know how to fix problems with the program "Ultramixer" this probably won't help you at all. I'm trying to figure out why its taking so long to load "Key mapping" which is a menu under preferences. Since i have the demo version i can only have it open for 60 minutes at a time, then i have to restart it for another session. i have tried to load key mapping, but it doesn't load in the 60 minutes, i emailed tech service, and they told me to email them two log files from the folder ".ultramixer" the log files were:
/Users/<Benutzername>/.ultramixer/umerr.txtmacbook, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

Sorry, I can't help you with UltraMixer. Suggest you contact the developer for assistance. All I would know is that log files are not usually invisible and rarely ever stored within an application package.Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MacBook Pro C2D 2.33 Ghz; MacBook Pro 2.16 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4), Intel iMac C2D 17 "; MacBook 2.0 Ghz; 30 GB iPod Video (Black); iPod Nano 2 GB

There is a simple to use, small, free ware app called "HIdden Files" that should do the job. Google should find it for you or you can get it here:
