10.4: Hide Terminal's window during launch at login
Authored by: Mark Barton on Jun 08, '05 08:54:29PM
To get slightly closer to the original behaviour, I created the following command file (my shell is tcsh),

~/Library/Application\ Support/Terminal/hideterminal
with the three lines

set backslash_quote = "yes"
osascript -e "tell application \"System Events\" to set visible of some item of\
 ( get processes whose name = \"Terminal\" ) to false"
and used that for the "Execute this command (specify complete path)" option in the .term file. Naturally the command file needs its execution bit set:

chmod +x ~/Library/Application\ Support/Terminal/hideterminal
