I have a very simple (one line) shell script that does nothing but create a symbolic link. I've given it execute permissions and tested it. Works like a charm from the command line. Being still pretty new to the mac world I googled around and it appears LoginHook is the way to get a script to run at start up. I followed the instructions found here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=301446 Tried both approaches...with no success. I also tried the tool located here: http://www.bombich.com/mactips/loginhooks.html I got a few messages about not being able to find certain files, but the UI came up and I was able to point to my script test it and it worked. But once again after a reboot, my script didn't run at log in. Anyone have any idea if LoginHook still works in Leopard (all info I could find was pre-Leopard). Any other suggestions on how to get a shell script to run at start up. Thx!
