Launch login items via AppleScript to avoid login delays
Authored by: kimballk on Nov 20, '09 05:17:49AM

The script makes the code necessary to activate an application quite clear. But please explain to non-scripter how to activate items on startup which are not the Applications folder. For example:
Path = "/Applications/Utilities/0-SYSTEM UPKEEP & MONITOR/00-BASIC/SMARTReporter.app";
Path = "/Users/00/Library/Application Support/Awaken/AwakenHelper.app";
Path = "/Users/00/Library/PreferencePanes/Default Folder X.prefPane/Contents/Resources/Default Folder X Helper.app";
Path = "/Users/00/Library/Application Support/A Better Finder Suite/ABF HotKey.app";
Path = "/Library/PreferencePanes/Growl.prefPane/Contents/Resources/GrowlHelperApp.app";

All you need to know to use this script on any application is the name that the system uses to call it. to get that, open Script Editor and use the line: tell application "System Events" to get name of every process. This line will print out a list of all the names of every process running from your user account. You can look through it to find the name of whatever process you're interested in (the one you want is generally pretty obvious), and then copy that into the script.
