    So I downloaded the new beta of the FaH client, and it came with the handy GUI installer and the Folding@Home Client Control application. But part of me misses the soothing Terminal-based setup I used to have.

    Frankly, I'm not all that skilled at random Terminal tasks - anyone have a quick guide to launching the client directly in the terminal window?

    I'm sure there must be guide somewhere, but I've not seen it!

    I just tried the following at the terminal and it looks like it works:

    cd /Applications/Folding@home\ Client.app/Contents/MacOS
    I don't know where/how this then gets its config, or if you'll need any extra switches


    A bit more playing, and copying config.xml from ~/Library/Application Support/FAHClient to /Applications/Folding@home Client.app/Contents/MacOS gets your username and settings entered through the GUI to the client (just don't have pause on start set to true like I did!)
