    I am trying to make an automator application to run a shell script/terminal command. I created two yesterday, i just wanted to run it by here to make sure i did it correctly.
    I built and application and chose the "run shell script" option.
    i deleted the "cat" that was populated there by defauld and copied the following into the action "/applications/TVmobili.app/contents/macos/ctltcm/sh stop"
    saved as an app and tried to run it. not sure if it worked though, as it seemed the process was still running.
    is there any additional info i need to add to the terminal command?

    thanks

    Check your case. The command probably should be:
    "/Applications/TVmobili.app/Contents/MacOS/ctltcm/sh stop"

    I did have it in that case when i entered it. i just typed it quick for this post. sorry about that. though my question is though i see you have it as /ctltcm/sh stop. The developer game me ctltcm.sh stop should i change this? also, when i ran it. its seemed that the process was still running (abiet at a % that was going lower) shouldnt this be a sudden stop, or is this a process that would gradually wind down?

    thanks

    In answer to your first question: Yes. Change it.
    As for your second question: I don't know, I've not heard of TVmobili before.
