I wrote a simple shell script to mount a few afp volumes during startup. The script works fine when run manually from terminal. Problem is I can't get the plist to load using 'launchctl' It does not show up in the 'list' and I get the 'Bonjour Workaround' error. I want this to execute when the user logs in. Here's the code (plist path ~/Library/LaunchAgents/)


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Label</key>
<string>Shop Mounter v0.3</string>
<key>OnDemand</key>
<false/>
<key>Program</key>
<string>/Users/shop/usr/local/bin/mount_shop.sh</string>
<key>ProgramArguments</key>
<array>
<string>/Users/shop/usr/local/bin/mount_shop.sh</string>
</array>
<key>RunAtLoad</key>
<true/>
<key>ServiceDescription</key>
<string>Version 0.3 attempt</string>
</dict>
</plist>


Thanks for any help

If I remember correctly, the .plist file has to be owned by root with group admin.

Anyway, that's the way I have one I created set and it works (on the other hand, mine is a daemon in /Library/LaunchDaemons. It makes less sense why a user agent would have to be owned in this way... Well, actually, since this is in the global /Library folder rather than a user specific one, I guess it does make sense.
