I wrote a little script to automatically update my Network Location based on a couple of conditions, and have coupled that with a launchd plist to have it run every couple of minutes.
However, I've noticed that my launchd plist doesn't seem to get loaded when my computer reboots. My plist is in
~/Library/LaunchDaemons and is fairly simple:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Label</key> <string>com.davedelong.location-updater</string> <key>Program</key> <string>/path/to/my/location_updater.rb</string> <key>StartInterval</key> <integer>180</integer> </dict> </plist>
LaunchDaemons folder has the expected
700 permissions, and running
launchctl load with my plist makes things work just fine. It's just that when I reboot, it's not getting loaded.
I was under the impression that everything in
~/Library/LaunchAgents got loaded automatically by launchd. Is this not the case? If this is the case (and I think it is), then why isn't my plist getting loaded?
