could you please send the bash examples?
[quote=“JonathanOSX”]It is actually possible – but the only way to do it with the built-in Apple resources may be more than what you were looking for.
As EggplantMatt says, you DO need a user session for Vine’s Desktop Server to attach to. So you can get one of those when a user logs in, so you CAN set your system to log in one user on boot-up, that’s just in the standard System Preferences for Accounts. So that user can be set to launch Vine Server (as a desktop app) on log in.
So that’s just the initial user – but, if you want, that user can run a script (also on login) to trigger a Fast User Switch to a second user who can also be configured to launch a desktop Vine server and so on. Your final user can actually also drop all the way back to the Log In Screen (if you want).
Caveats to this approach –
[list]*It really only works if your users don’t have passwords set, otherwise the Fast User Switch script just brings up a password prompt.
- It leaves all your users pre-logged in, that consumes a fair bit of memory and resources
- It makes your startup process very slow and involved.[/list:u]
If anyone is interested in this approach I have some scripts that do the fast user switching as an example (it’s just a couple of lines of shell code).
There are bound to be more sophisticated ways to accomplish this, if anyone else has clever ideas please post them here.[/quote]
