Some improvements
Authored by: thatch on Dec 19, '01 03:15:32AM

I had some problems with another applescript login item as well as some problems with other user accounts with this tip.

An applescript I had made for moving my browser cache to the trash on login stayed open and became unresponsive when it was a run only script so I had to put it into the regular login items together with this tip script.

When I tried to use this setup in other user accounts, it wouldn't run because of a certain login item called Cookie Dog Login which is kept in ~/Library/Preferences and is listed as a document not an application. It is also in reality a carbon app. The reason it doesn't work is because it doesn't have the correct permissions being another user account.

But I do like the way this tip works for my admin account. I set the time variable to only one second and it works just fine. It's certainly better than having all the login items launch at once. And you can still control the order they launch too.
