10.4: Change the default screenshot format
Authored by: ynolo on Jul 08, '05 11:12:53AM

the process that you need to kill from the cml, is /System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindow.app/Contents/MacOS/loginwindow console

It will be listed as such:

532 loginwindo 0.0% 0:00.55 3 117 126 1.13M 5.61M 4.39M 133M

You have to be root to kill this process and it will not affect other users that are logged in via the GUI.

Cheers!

But it is also the reason you have to log out. Because if you kill that process you get logged out. :-)

10.4: Change the default screenshot format

Well, yea, I know you can kill the loginwindow to force an immediate logout, but that's not really what I was asking :).

I was curious if there's a non-destructive process that could be restarted without requiring the logout step. Since this used to work instantly in 10.1, I was hoping there'd be a somewhat easy way to do the same in 10.4...
