I install the "IP in menubar" app on our Macs to show the computer name and its IP address in the menubar (https://www.monkeybreadsoftware.de/Software/IPinmenubar.shtml).
For this deployment I use Composer to simply capture the app in the Applications folder, and then build a .pkg.
Here is what is stumping me: If I run that package on another computer with the same user account name as the Mac I created the .pkg in, it functions as expected. However, if I try to install the package on a Mac with a different user account name, the package installs, but behaves differently. Check out the screenshots below:
Install with same user account name as the computer where the .pkg was made with Composer. Notice the desired behavior of no icon in the dock, and how the application icon displays as expected:
Next, the install on a Mac with a different user account name. Notice how there is a dock icon now showing (the application is not hidden), and how the application icon itself is a generic default graphic:
Please note that the ONLY thing I captured with composer is the IP in menu bar.app file in the Applications folder.
Does anyone have any guesses as to what is causing this behavior? I'd really like to figure it out.
