Share Menu in Yosemite and Widget Simulator

Since installing Yosemite, my "Share" menu has failed to show many of the built-in sharing possibilities, including some of the Apple-supplied ones. These items would also not appear in the System Preferences ("Extensions" -> "Share Menu").

I've fixed it several times (steps below), and am adding it here so I can find it more easily.

Share button in Yosemite Safari not working, shows "No Service"

Basically:

  1. Open everything in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ShareKit.framework/Versions/A/PlugIns/ with an application called "Widget Simulator."
  2. Click "Okay" or whatever to dismiss the dialog box that appears.

That's it. Doing this rebuilds an index or something somewhere and makes Mac1 OS X "aware" of the extensions it has to enable more sharing.

  1. I still like to call it that, dammit.
