QuickLook for installer packages!

There really is a QuickLook plugin for everything now, even for Apple installer packages. I didn't think the idea was that great at first, but it is really well implemented. It shows relevant information such as if an administrator password is required and if a restart is required. It also shows information about the install scripts. You can get the plugin called Suspicious Package here from MacUpdate.

When you install this app you get this...

"To install, drag the icon to Library => Quicklook, under your home folder."

What does it mean? I which folder do you have to put it?

Well, your Library Folder is in your home folder and the name of the app is QuickLook, so if that is what the message says, I would drag the icon to my Library folder.

Most applications have a Help section, I would read that and the website that you download the application from, might have a "Contact US" link on it. You can e-mail them the question to make sure.

That does sound confusing I must admit. He is being told to drag the icon into a folder which doesn't yet exist!

...unless the 'equal to or greater than' symbol has a meaning that I am not aware of.
