I would really like to use a script to enable these things on macOS High Sierra, by using defaults. I know how to create the script in .bash_profile, as I will use a function for it, and then just run the function in the terminal. However, what I'm missing are the actual strings to enable the following:
- Displaying of Bluetooth icon
- Displaying of Volume icon
- Displaying of battery percentage
- Displaying of full date
Are any of these programmatically settable by using Defaults, and have they changed a great deal between 10.6-10.13?
Ok, based on what IconDeamon said in the comments section for this post, I was able to go and edit
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.systemuiserver.plist and was able to see a list of menus that I have enabled.
However, this does not necessarily take me to the place I want to go to. Ideally, it'd be good to find a list and be able to solve this. I mean, okay, now, thanks to help on this forum, I know that the ones I wish to display are:
/System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/Script Menu.menu
and that the menu can have a
_5 or a
_3 at the end to signify where it should go. But..? It's not exactly a user-writable textfile I can just edit.
