Fresh Leopard install gone Wrong - PKG Files Associated with Safari

Advertisement
November 30

I just purchased a used Macbook Core 2 Duo 2.0ghz that came with Tiger installed. I upgraded to Leopard by zeroing the hard drive and reinstalling Leopard and all updates.
The problem I am running into is that for some reason, and PKG files downloaded to install programs (i.e. Skype) will not install because the PKG file is associated with Safari. I check on my Mac Pro, and it has PKG files associated with "Installer". I tried to find "Installer" as a program on the Macbook but had no luck. Any ideas? With this being a fresh install I have NO idea how this happened. Any help is most appreciated. Thanks.

Hmm, I tried to associate a file with the Installer, but wasn't able to get the system to tell me where it is. There is a command line version of the installer in /usr/sbin/, and that may be what the system uses under the hood, but I couldn't find a way to get to that either (I was trying to do this in the Get Info pane, under Open With).
I don't know why pkg is associated with Safari. It could be that your launch services database got hosed somehow during your upgrade. If you're willing try something, it might be that rebuilding your launch services database will help. From the command line, run this command:
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchSe rvices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
(the above should all be on one line). This will reset, then rebuild the database. Although I don't think it's strictly necessary, restarting your machine after this command has run successfully would probably be a good idea.
