Mac OS X 10.5.5 and Screen Sharing

Ever since updating to Mac OS X 10.5.5 (I believe), several buttons have been missing from the toolbar in my Screen Sharing application. The only three buttons in my toolbar now are "fit to window" and the two clipboard ones. I know there used to be one for full screen, one for locking the screen, and a few others.

So where'd they go? I'll re-download the 10.5.5 update and apply it. Run Disk Utility… Or am I missing that this was an intended change?

Update: Never mind. Screw you, Apple. I've recovered Screen Sharing 1.0, removed 1.0.1, and recovered the prefs file too. Thanks, Time Machine.

  1. Well put.

    Sure the functions were "Unofficial" but for such a "cool" company, Apple sure as hell could teach Microsoft a lesson or two in "getting your customers to bend over and even provide their own vaseline."

    Me, I went for ARD.

  2. Thanks for the warning. DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB DUBM, Apple!

    I had upgraded my mini to 10.5.5, but since I only share its screen but don't use Screen on the mini, I hadn't noticed it yet. I use Screen on the PowerBook, and that's still on 10.5.4. I've already saved its Screen, and I'll just launch that manually from now on, instead of running the one from /System/Library/CoreServices.

    Of course, I could just upgrade and replace the CoreServices one; is that what you did, and have you had any problems?
