display – How can I move spaces between external monitors in Mavericks? – Ask Different [WayBack]
You can only move spaces which are non-active.
For example, lets say you have spaces 1 and 2. If space 1 is active, you can not move it. You first have to select space 2 then you can move space 1 to a different monitor.
This helped me work around version 8.35 of Microsoft Remote Desktop for OS X breaks second monitor usage [WayBack]:
- Double click a connection so it goes to a new space on the primary display
- Make the normal space active (by three finger swiping on the primary display)
- Go to mission control
- Move the non-active RDP space to the secondary monitor
Sometimes the primary monitor doesn’t have a non-active space any more so you have to create a new one in the top right of Mission Control [WayBack].

One of the nitpicks in VMware Fusion is that it has no keyboard shortcut for Resume or Suspend. I was trying to add Command-R and Command-S for those but that didn’t work out.
Since the links below seem to work for some other applications, I’ve kept them:

Really interesting stuff: ttystudio. It allows to record an apng or gif of a terminal session (so it should work on headless systems).
Anyone knowing alternatives for OpenSuSE and Mac OS X?
(Cockos Incorporated | LICEcap might cut it on Mac OS X, but not on headless systems so GNOME/byzanz doesn’t cut it either)
Handy as well:

The most recent versions of Joe don’t even build from stock in OS X any more and there are no direct installers for them.
But there are two most recent older versions that have installers, and a formula recent brew based HomeBrew installation:
- joe-3.7-0.pkg – rudix-snowleopard – JOE – Rudix: The hassle-free way to get Unix programs on Mac OS X – Google Project Hosting.
- PROJECT DETAIL for Joe’s Own Editor.
- Homebrew Formulas – Joe.
After experimenting for a while without brew preferring the first over second, I’ve installed the the third as:
- The first actually installs version 3.6, but has the syntax highlighting files installed in the correct place, so you get syntax highlighting.
- The second does install version 3.7, but since the syntax highlighting files are in the wrong place: you get no syntax highlighting.
- The brew formula has an up to date joe version 4.0 and installs the syntax highlighting in the right place: you get syntax highlighting.
Before making a choice, you might want to consider reading about joe versions in JOE – Joe’s own editor / … /NEWS.md.
Having a background partially in the Linux world, I tried building joe from source on my Mac following the steps at JOE – Joe’s own editor / Discussion / joe-editor-general:Mac binary for 3.3 does not run on OS/X 10.8. It failed because the Mercurial 3.8 branch required automake and autoconf which are not available on just a Mac + Xcode. So I’m happy that others have bit the bullet and make a good HomeBrew build.
What makes HomeBrew so great is that it is based on a fully versioned git/ruby combination, allows for multiple Python versions, allows for binaries through bintray served bottles and has zillions (well, thousands) of installable formulae, all versioned.

Time permitting, I will research more on this later:
Homebrew no longer needs to have ownership of /usr/local. If you wish you can
return /usr/local to its default ownership with:
sudo chown root:wheel /usr/local
Reason: the log does look funny, see below.
