    Angry .DS_Store OS X HIDE THEM HOW?

    basically i think i unchecked a hide hidden files/system files whatever it was option in finder or somewhere on 10.5.6 OS X and now i'm getting these bloody annoying .DS_Store files on my desktop and in every folder.
    simply put how do i get rid of them/hide them.
    really annoying me now!

    Good riddance. Wish I'd done it about a year ago.

    Re: .DS_Store OS X HIDE THEM HOW?

    No idea how you managed that!

    Two things:

    1. Hide hidden files: in terminal: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
    killall Finder

    2. Prevent .ds_store creation over network drives: in terminal - defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores true

    Try those and see if it helps

    You can just delete them though - they only contain icon positioning info, and background info etc
