Take iSight snapshots during invalid login attempts
Authored by: lgc90 on Dec 12, '06 03:21:10PM
The Readme isn't all that helpful:

"To Install:

1. Install isightcapture into /opt/local/bin (or some other useful path)
isightcapture can be found here: http://www.intergalactic.de/hacks.html
NOTE: Be sure to update the path, if different, in the authsightd script

2. Install authsightd into /usr/libexec/
3. Install authsightd.plist into /Library/LaunchDaemons
4. Run: sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/authsight.plist"

Well, I'm already screwed. I have no idea where "/opt/local/bin" is. Anybody care to help out a computer illiterate?

You actually don't need to find opt/local/bin at all. Just find yourself a location where you're confortable keeping the script, and modify the path within authsightd. This cab ne easily done with TextMate or a similar program.

Now, the other two files do need to go where they're telling you to put them. For that, you need to be able to see the hidden folders inside your system.

Use something like this to enable that:

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES

You'll have to restart the Finder after that Terminal command has been executed.

Have fun, i've tested it myself and it works like a beauty. I'm highly interested in seeing who wakes my MacBook Pro as well.... anyone know how to do that?

Cheers.

You can get to hidden folders by the 'Go' finder menu. just put in the /unix/path/. You not need to do show hidden.

There's an installer now, it does this all for you.
