Question: Syntax for Symbolic links in High Sierra
Great and helpful workflow. I found that with OSX High Sierra I had to modify the syntax to make the links.
- The colon : is used for the backlash in front of library on volumes
- Place a Forward Slash before a space in a directory name
- Don't use quotes
For example. my external drive is named 'SFS Video' and I used the following Terminal commands to make the working symlinks:
sudo ln -s /Volumes/SFS\ Video/\:Library/Application\ Support/Logic /Library/Application\ Support/Logic
sudo ln -s /Volumes/SFS\ Video/\:Library/Application\ Support/GarageBand /Library/Application\ Support/GarageBand
sudo ln -s /Volumes/SFS\ Video/\:Library/Audio/Apple\ Loops /Library/Audio/Apple\ Loops
sudo ln -s /Volumes/SFS\ Video/\:Library/Audio/Impulse\ Responses /Library/Audio/Impulse\ Responses
Yes, I also copied the Impulse Responses folder for Logic Pro X.
