From the command line is it possible to open a package installer window (not install the application).

I understand I could run the application using sudo installer -pkg ..... -target ....... Instead i would like to open the package in a similar way to if I double clicked the package within the Finder.

  • Do you mean like entering open: /path/to/installer.pkg – Asmus Nov 11 '13 at 16:45

You can just use the open command:

open package.pkg
  • Yes, thats exactly what i mean, cannot believe i missed it. Was expecting it to be a param of installer. – user204088 Nov 11 '13 at 16:47
