Launch login items via AppleScript to avoid login delays
Authored by: V.K. on Nov 18, '09 08:33:07AM

good idea but change "activate" to "launch" everywhere in the script. this will launch those apps in the background. otherwise some of them will try to steal focus as poster post break indicated.

The reason activate MAY be better is: some applications do not like "launch." Final Cut Pro, for example, will freeze and crash with "launch."
