Have OD-AD magic triangle all authenticating properly, network home showing up in dock etc just fine. However finding the network home in the save dialog is confusing some pupils. Is there a way to have their network home folder show up as a mount in the finder side bar. At present under Shared the server name shows up and the pupils need to browse across the shares to reach their home folder.
Any suggestions as to how to accomplish this as it would prevent them saving work on the local home folder on the macs.
In one of my projects I created a script that would simulate this using applescript.
This selects the disk name (might not work if your drive names are all different) then simulates the Command T keystroke to put it in the sidebar. However I found that after doing this it sometimes opened a window displaying the disk contents and so I added the Command W which will close the active window. You might not need the last line if this doesn't happen in your case.Code:tell application "Finder" activate delay 1.5 select disk named "DISKNAMEHERE" tell application "System Events" to tell process "Finder" to keystroke "t" using command down tell application "System Events" to tell process "Finder" to keystroke "w" using command down end tell
