NOTE: Extensis Support is not responsible for assisting you in implementing a remote deploy process or troubleshooting the commands below. The information in this article is intended to share methods we've found helpful for other customers looking to remotely deploy Connect Fonts and Suitcase in their environment.
Building a .pkg from our Application
In some environments it's easier to deploy a .pkg file. To create a .pkg from our latest installer:
- Install Connect Fonts.app
- Open Terminal.app
- Use the following command:
sudo pkgbuild --install-location /Applications --component "/Applications/Connect Fonts.app" ~/Desktop/Connect.pkg
This will leave a Connect.pkg file on the desktop
Installing Plug-ins via Terminal
For information on installing plug-ins using Terminal or through a shell script, go to Installing and uninstalling plug-ins for Connect Fonts Powered By Suitcase from the command line.
Disabling Automatic Update Notices
The following can be deployed via terminal to remotely turn off the "check for automatic updates? in the client. NOTE: User can manually turn this back on and clean wiping Connect Fonts Desktop will reset this as well.
