We use an auto login script using ARD to avoid visiting each station in our lab. Mountain Lion no longer works so that a cursor appears at the login screen. I've tried numerous scripts to activate the cursor to no avail. Pressing 5 on they numerical pad will do it as will a generic mouse down action. To avoid having to do this at each computer, how can I script one of these actions in an osascript? thank you in advance.
Try using the
key code command:
osascript -e 'tell app "System Events" to key code 87'
See Events.h for the key codes. Here are the key codes for all numpad keys:
