For my use, Applescript is a must have.
I run Indigo on a dedicated server (not dedicated exclusively to Indigo, but a box that no one ever needs to locally log in to), so ideally, I'd like to have Indigo demonized with Applescript support without the need for a GUI login.
Understanding the Applescript limitation, the next best thing would be for Indigo to be able to run under a non-admin account (either with a GUI or not, really doesn't matter at that point except for the CPU cycles). For security purposes, I'd prefer not to leave an interactive admin session open on the server all the time.
Yeah, it would be nice if AppleScript was available before login. Unfortunately, it requires the WindowServer process which isn't started by the OS until after someone logs on.
IndigoServer can run under non-admin accounts once you modify some folder/file permissions. Modify the file permissions (and/or file owner) of this folder and all sub-folders (and files):
- Code: Select all
/Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 5/
By design, all of the server settings, database files, log files, etc., inside that single folder to make modifying file/folder permissions simpler.
Once the account under which IndigoServer runs has full read/write access to those folders and files, it will work.
