Good article thanks.
I'm stuck running commands in my login script in 10.3 and I'm having trouble with paths.
Here's my test login hook script:


#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/touch ~$1/Library/Preferences/thisisatest.txt
exit 0
# end


'sudo testscript.sh yan' gives 'touch: /Users/yan/Preferences/thisisatest.txt: No such file or directory'


The command works fine out of the script.
I need to use a relative path to find the users home folder because some of my users are in /Users and some are in /network for networked home folder. Any ideas would be appreciated.
