5. Now when you open Managed Software Center.app on a Mac configured as Munki client you will see a new

update – even when it is a first install of ezeep Blue Print App

ezeep blue print app deployment with munki

Make the client auto launch ezeep Blue Print App after installation

To make ezeep Blue Print App to launch automatically when user logs in and install the printers the user is

able to use, we need to add a script to the ezep Print App pkgsvinfo file in a quoted format:

1. Create a new file and save it to the destktop with a name like munki_postinstall_script.txt

#!/bin/sh

if [ ! -d "/Library/PrivilegedHelperTools" ]

then

mkdir "/Library/PrivilegedHelperTools"

chmod 755 "/Library/PrivilegedHelperTools"

fi

if [ -f "/Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/com.thinprint.ezeep.ezeep-Print-App-launchOncePerUser-

helper" ]

then

rm "/Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/com.thinprint.ezeep.ezeep-Print-App-launchOncePerUser-

helper"

fi

cat << EOF > "/Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/com.thinprint.ezeep.ezeep-Print-App-launchOncePerUser-

helper"

#!/bin/sh

open "/Applications/ezeep Print App.app"

rm ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.thinprint.ezeep.ezeep-Print-App-launchOnce.plist

EOF 

chmod 755 "/Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/com.thinprint.ezeep.ezeep-Print-App-launchOncePerUser-

helper"

out=$(dscacheutil -q user | grep -A 3 -B 2 -e uid:\ 5'[0-9][0-9]' | grep "dir:" | sed -e

's/dir: //g')

for i in $out

do

j=$(basename "$i")

if [ ! -d "$i/Library/LaunchAgents" ]

then

mkdir "$i/Library/LaunchAgents"

chown "$j" "$i/Library/LaunchAgents"

chmod 755 "$i/Library/LaunchAgents"

fi

cat << EOF > "$i/Library/LaunchAgents/com.thinprint.ezeep.ezeep-Print-App-launchOnce.

plist"

done

exit 0

2. Copy the content of this script into munki_postinstall_script.txt.

3. Let’s Munki convert the contents of this file into a special quoted format:

/usr/local/munki/makepkginfo --postinstall_script /Users/rwelz/Desktop/munki_postinstall_

script.txt

4. Copy the relevant part of the output (between <string> and </string> and paste it into the pkgsinfo

file together with the relevant xml key:

<string>#!/bin/sh

if [ ! -d "/Library/PrivilegedHelperTools" ]

then

mkdir "/Library/PrivilegedHelperTools"

chmod 755 „/Library/PrivilegedHelperTools"

chmod 644 "$i/Library/LaunchAgents/com.thinprint.ezeep.ezeep-Print-App-launchOnce.plist"

done

6. Call:

/usr/local/munki/makecatalogs

to make Munki recognize the changes in the pkgsinfo file.
