Any way to have Classic launch about 2-3 minutes after OSX boots up?<br><br>There's a Font Agent Pro extension that needs to load with Classic to be able to auto-activate fonts in Quark 4, but it gives me an error if it loads BEFORE the actual Font Agent app- which never seems to load before Classic does...<br><br>I just want to give FAP time to load up completely, THEN launch Classic automatically...<br><br>Thoughts?<br><br>
That's his problem. The auto boot of Classic starts before FAP is finished loading the db (which needs to happen before Classic).<br><br>DM, you have tried messing with the bootup order in the Login Items prefs pane? My guess is you tried—it looks to me that booting into classic is not part of the login items window even if it's automatic. But I think I've got you covered:<br><br>1. Go to:<br>/System/Library/CoreServices/Classic Startup<br><br>2. Open Login Items prefs pane<br>3. Drag Classic Startup into the Login Items pane at the bottom of the list<br>4. Reboot and cross you fingers to see if it works<br><br>I just tried adding it and it allowed me to do so. I just wasn't willing to reboot for ya. <br><br><pre>** sometimes you win, and sometimes you learn **</pre><p>
I gotta ask ya... "what the heck are you shutting down/restarting your Mac for?" I haven't shut my machine off in months. <br><br><br>[color:green]Trying to straddle the fence leaves you with nothing but sore balls.</font color=green>

sure<br><br>--begin script<br>on run<br> delay 120 --(this is 2 minutes in seconds)<br> tell application "Classic Startup"<br> activate<br> end tell<br>end run<br><br>--end script<br><br>Make this an app and set it up in your login items<br>
hee hee, if you used my method I gave you earlier, you could just check the "hide" button in the Login Items panel. If 12 seconds is all you need, the method I gave should be enough time.<br><br><pre>** sometimes you win, and sometimes you learn **</pre><p>
