Code sign wants to sign using key Allow button not working

A rather stupid error without any indication on what’s wrong. The button Allow always and Allow doesnt work for “Code sign wants to sign using key”. You can press it but does not do anything and the system doesn’t say not allowed or some sort. This happened when I deployed from Visual Studio using Xamarin to iPhone device through the mac I had to verify the certificate but I couldn’t.

Source of the solution:

“I am using a software to make the movement of my mouse smoother. The app is called “SmoothMouse” and if it is active, it’s impossible to click prompt asked by the keychain. I deactivated it and everything worked fine. So, if you use VPN or any software that simulate/modify your mouse position, keychain won’t let you click on it’s popup messages.”

My issue came from using Teamviewer to remote control the mac and doing everything from Teamviewer. After I went on the local machine, closed down Teamviewer. Deployed the solution from Visual Studio, got the “Code sign wants to sign using key” message on the mac and press with the local mouse I was allow to press the buttons. Hurray! What a stupid issue.

Mac No Display On Targus DisplayLink

Updated to Yosemite, now on 10.10.1 and the external display disappeared. It’s running through a targus dockingstation displaylink.

There is multiple post about the issue on dipslayLink forum, some users got it to work:

Tried both running the lastest DisplayLink 2.2 and the 2.3Beta, none of them work for MacBook Air 2013. Ended trying installing an old release 2.1 and this apparently work, even though it’s stated that it works up until 10.9 Maverick. But not concerned about it, you can download the drivers from here:

Stop iPhoto From Automatically Opening

iPhoto automatically opens up when connecting your iPhone og iPad. The issue is that it’s not iPhoto itself but “Image Capture” that opens it up.

Reset Mac Failed

Was going to hard reset a MacBook Air from 2010, the issue could probably happen on all Mac though. This is what was done:

So by holding down the alt-key (option-key) and the powerbutton while the mac is shut down you’ll get into a recovery state for both resetting and using time travel. In this case I erased the main hdd and selected reinstall OS X. By continuing it says this: “To download and restore os x your computer’s eligibility will be verified with apple”.

This gave the following error: “An error occurred while preparing the installation. try running this application again”


The issue was the date. Apparently if the date is obscured Apple will not approve. Open up the terminal, it can be accessed from from the Utility menu on top while in the recovery mode.

Type in “date”, this will print out the date and time, if this isn’t correct, hurray! You can fix this.

To change the date and time, type in “date 201410081224”. The command parameters depends on your date format for you machine. So the order might be different for you. But something close to “”date” year month date hour min”. If you’re still total lost type “man date” and take a look at the examples further down the manual page.

Thank to “Rcd_” from forum: for the date solution.

If the date thing wasn’t your issues take a look at the following which might case your error:

OS X Yosemite Prevent Fullscreen From Zoom Button

Apple has changed the functionality of the zoom button for every window in OS X Yosemite, the third and green button. It’s not a zoom button anymore (nor a maximize  as in MS Windows), it is now a fullscreen. Which at first (and second time) is annoying and confusing. There doesn’t seem to be a way to permanently change this back to a just doing the zoom as previous. But you can change it temporarily each time by hitting Alt/Option. This will change the button’s functionality to zoom. Visually it’ll change from fullscreen icon Screen Shot 2014-09-17 at 10.27.53 (two arrows/squares) to the zoom icon Screen Shot 2014-09-17 at 10.28.16 (plus icon).


Xcode UIToolbar Set Height Is Locked

The object in Xcode: UIToolbar is locked when using the Interface Builder at 44 px tall. You can easily change this programmably by using setFrame

[myToolbar setFrame:CGRectMake(0,50,320,30)];

However you are able to do this in the Interface Builder as well by creating a constraints for the UIToolbar. Select the toolbar element and choose Editor > Pin > Height. You can now select the constraint and change the height to e.g. 30 px.
