    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" "">
    <plist version="1.0">
            <string>Shop Mounter v0.3</string>
            <string>Version 0.3 attempt</string>
    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.
