Fixes ColorSync issue when switching users.

Overview

Fast User Switching Color Fix... Under Mac OS X, when you switch user using the Fast User Switching feature, ColorSync gets lost and the colors on your screen suddenly become ugly. To get the right color management back, you just need to run DMProxy, which is somewhere deep in your hard disk. I wrote a 2-line script to run DMProxy. I suggest you put in your Utilities folder, you can also add it to the "start with session" list. Here is the source code if you prefer to write the script by yourself: do shell script "/System/Library/Frameworks/ ApplicationServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/ CoreGraphics.framework/Versions/A/Resources/DMProxy" quit [first line is "do...", second line is just "quit"]

Hi Arthur, please allow me to comment your work a bit: There is a thread on that deals with this topic. The bottom line is, that you can simply add the DMProxy itself to your startup items, so there is nothing else to do. 2. If you wrote a simple two-line script, why did you compile it to a binary format? I suppose because of a better perfomance. But launching a shell and calling a script during startup is probably a worse peromance that calling the DMProxy instantly. So please don't take it personal, I'm just pointing out the facts. Best regards Claudio

Hi Claudio, it's actually the very first script i write, so i don't know the difference between the options. I supposed that a binary would run faster, so i chose it... Here is the source code: do shell script "/System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/CoreGraphics.framework/Versions/A/Resources/DMProxy” quit I tried to run DMProxy manually by double-clicking on it, but it didn't work on my machine, i had to run it in a terminal window. That's the reason why i thought about writing an AppleScript. If you think i should publish it in another (editable) way, just tell me ;-) Arthur
