Running SS behind login screen - issue with Big Sur update?
  • Hi, I updated to Big Sur yesterday on my Mac mini

    I had to reboot the computer this morning b/c of some kind of crash and it seems that the script found here:

    http://www.bensoftware.com/securityspy/helpfaq.html#RunBehindLoginScreen

    generates this message in Terminal:

    The default interactive shell is now zsh.
    To update your account to use zsh, please run `chsh -s /bin/zsh`.

    Pulin-Mac:~ pulin$ /Users/pulin/Desktop/Go\ To\ Login\ Window.command ; exit;
    /Users/pulin/Desktop/Go To Login Window.command: line 1: /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/User.menu/Contents/Resources/CGSession: No such file or directory

    and the Mac didn't return to the login screen

    I haven't tried a second reboot yet to see if it was just a one off thing, but was wondering what I need to do to get the script working again? Does the script need to be updated?

    Thank you
