: When I try to open Screen Saver or Desktop Prefs, I get "There was a problem connecting to the server 'iDisk.mac.com'". I have a new MacBook Pro with Mountain Lion. How can I change the prefs, and stop getting the annoying message that again pops up as soon as I click "OK"?
Look for aliases to image files, and check the targets by opening the Finder Info dialog. It will be a tedious job. You could automate the task with AppleScript, but you'd have to ask somebody else for help with that.
They are all websites on Safari; could that still be the problem? I've deleted a few items that I thought could have caused this, but still have the problem. Also, where do I look for the target, under "Where from" in the info window? Thank you for your help. Sorry I'm not getting it yet.
When you open the preference pane and select the Desktop tab, you see on the left a hierarchical list of desktop images. At the top is Apple, and below that, iPhoto and Folders. What, if anything, is selected in that list?
"Desktop Pictures" is selected. The annoying message shows up no matter what is selected; there are 6 built-in Apple folders, plus "Pictures" under "Folders". iPhoto doesn't always show up and there is no triangle next to it. Even weirder.
