Getting Software Update alerts as a standard user
Authored by: GoboGobo on Feb 01, '12 02:48:54AM

I've done some hacking based on previous comments, and the original de.anderson.sven.updateCheck. The updatecheck method no longer works because softwareupdate can only be run as root, also Growl has been updated, so that didn't work either.

A new fixed version is available here (right-click and save-as)

Place it in ~/Library/LaunchAgents and re-login or enter the following command in the Terminal:

launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/de.anderson.sven.updateCheck.plist

Apple was just in time to send out a new update. There was a small bug in the script that prevented it from running, I've uploaded a fixed version to the same URL.
