Library Folder is missing after installing OS X Lion

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I installed OS X Lion Developer Seed, I found out that installing this may cause too many bugs so I re-installed Snow Leopard using the original DVD. But now, iPhoto, Aperture, JDownloader could not start. On my IGetter downloads break, The Airport does not connect automatically. Then I found out that the Library Folder is missing. I could not find it even in the Home folder and even when I do a Spotlight search. I know it is wrong to install beta software as an update instead of installing it to different partition.  How can I go back to my original settings without issues? Help please.

Hi Brandy,

To get back your Library folder, follow this step. Open your Applications folder and choose the Utilities folder, double-click on the Terminal and select all the text in the box ( chflags nohidden ~/Library ) and press CMD + C to Copy, while in the Terminal window, press CMD + V and Press Enter. Hope it can help you to get back your Library folder.

To see your Library folder open FINDER and click GO> type  ~/Library and it will give you back the Library folder. But if your startupItems is missing then follow as below:

To get StartupItem folder back first go to Application>Utilities>Terminal or just open Terminal.

Then go to the system / Library by typing in the terminal.

Cd/System/Library

Press Enter Key. Now we’re going to create the StartupItems. Now type:

Sudo mkdir StartupItems

Press Enter Key. It may ask you for password during this process. So type password & finally press Enter Key in terminal.

What you typed in the terminal is case-sensitive. So type as same as I mentioned here.
