I’m new here and new to AppleScript. I’m not a programmer and I don’t want to become one, however, AppleScript seems easy enough to learn for an average user like me.
Every Friday, I would like my computer at work to run this maintenance script in Terminal
tell application “Terminal”
do script “sudo periodic daily weekly monthly;echo Done”
My problem is that Terminal asks for a password and I don’t know how to tell the application to enter in the password. What do I write in the script to tell it to put in the password?
I’ve searched the site/forums and couldnt find anything. Maybe i’m searching for the wrong thing?
Thanks for any help,
