It works! (eh, kinda)
Authored by: sgecko on Apr 04, '03 04:57:22PM
I've been trying out this hint, and have run across a couple of different results, neither of which is the one I want.

The first is if I'm at home, sitting at my machine and run the command line, I get an all black .jpg file with white text that says "USB Connection Error" on it. No picture at all. I had an IOX driver installed, and thought it was that conflicting with macam, so removed it (IOX) but still get the error. The camera (Logitech Pro 3000) works fine with macam's gui app. Though, I also get USB Connection Errors every once in awhile through that, as well (USB ports shot?).

When I try to run the script from a command line remotely (at work, for instance) I get the following error:

KCGErrorIllegalArgument : initCGDisplayState: cannot map display interlocks.
KCGEErrorIllegalArgument : CGSGetDisplayBounds (display 0)
Those are followed by a message that says the script compiled fine, and then it just hangs. I have to Ctrl-Z to suspend the process and then kill it.

I'm still hacking away at it, and will post any results I come up with. Just thought I'd share my experience.

sgecko, did you ever find a solution to this? The same things happened to me, too, on two freshly set up 10.2.5 boxes. My main box will let me run VNC remotely, but not these two other boxes, and all have the same OS version.

Could it be that I'm an admin user on my box, but only a regular joe-user without admin rights is logged in on these two problem boxes?
