10.4.6: not fixed
Authored by: tooki on Apr 14, '06 10:26:28AM

That script is overly complicated. AppleScript can run shell commands without launching the Terminal.

For this, just enter:

do shell script "/System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/CoreGraphics.framework/Versions/A/Resources/DMProxy" user name "AnAdminUsername" password "ThatAdminPassword" with administrator privileges

Obviously replace AnAdminUsername with an admin's user name, and ThatAdminPassword with that account's password (leave the quotes around both!!!). This script, saved as an application (run-only, since it contains login info), will do the same thing faster.
