LoginWindow Manager

2.0.2
03 November 2005

Manage hidden settings of Login window.

Overview

LoginWindow Manager can be used to manage several hidden features of the loginwindow application. These features include:
  • Disabling the restart and shutdown buttons on the login screen (ok, this feature isn't hidden, but belongs to this group anyway)
  • Hide local users in the list of users at the login screen
  • Hide administrator users at the list of users at the login screen
  • Include network users in the list of users at the login screen (applicable only in conjunction with MCX)
  • Show the "Other..." user at the loginwindow screen
  • Disable the logout, restart, and shutdown items in the Apple Menu. This is useful if you're setting up the computer to be a Kiosk. (Panther only)
  • Disable the hidden feature in loginwindow that allows you to drop to a black, all-text login screen. (Panther only)
  • Implement scripts to be run at login or logout

Except for the last item, these options are pretty much self-explanatory. There are a few things to keep in mind when implementing login or logout hooks, though.

What I would really like is an app to allow us to change THE ORDER OF THE LOGIN ITEMS, as we could in previous versions of OS X. It's annoying that I can't reorder the items the way I want in Tiger.

You can, but the control is busted. After several dozen tries I was able to grab an item and drag it. It's a bug - send reports to Apple. Not to mention, Login items have NOTHING to do with the Login Window...

They are not encrypted it's a binary form. Command Line (Terminal.app) plutil -convert xml1 plistfile.plist Will make it the xml format you're used to

just use property list editor and you won't lose the benefits of the binary format.

Apple is aware of this problem and a level 2 support agent, told me on Oct 11 that it was fixed in 10.4.3. It isn't - he lied.
