In particular, I want to set the mouse tracking speed. But I'd rather have a generic answer.
I don't need access to the System Preferences UI, I'm fine with using
I guess Login Window runs as root, right? What preferences files are looked up for it?
I had some partial luck with:
sudo -s cp ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist /Library/Preferences/ cp ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist /private/var/root/Library/Preferences/ cp ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/.GlobalPreferences.*.plist /private/var/root/Library/Preferences/ByHost/
By which I mean, I was able to notice the following effects:
- the color scheme switched to graphite. (and the button is still blue #applefail LOL)
- the display color profile is now correct in the login window (yay)
But no luck with fixing the mouse tracking.
