Prevent Terminal from opening without approval
Authored by: chutem on Feb 28, '06 08:10:44AM

Ok...I added the robg version of the code to /etc/bashrc under my admin user. I thought this would make the change for all users (i do my dtd stuff under a standard user) however only my admin user sees the terminal alert. Where exactly (i don't have a lot of terminal experience mind you) is the file that i need to edit to make this change for all users. Other than that the fix is brilliant. Any help appreciated.

If your default shell isn't bash, then you won't get this fix. You'll need to add it to your shell's rc file.

Thanks...didn't even think of that. For some reason my standard users default shell was tcsh. I used netinfo to change that to bash and now all is well. Thanks for the tip.

new installs of OS X post-10.3 default to Bash, but before that it was tsch, and if you upgrade an old pre-10.3 system it keeps the tcsh default. Just for anyone else who upgrades systems and expects this to work!
