Universal Type Client has options for deploying its auto-activation plug-ins from the command line. Network administrators can use these commands in a remote management application or as part of a deployment script.
Universal Type Client for Mac
"Universal Type Client" --HeadlessInstallTriggeredFromInstaller
- --HeadlessInstallTriggeredFromInstaller Installs all available plug-ins.
Universal Type Client executable is in /Applications/Universal Type Client.app/Contents/MacOS.
This command writes an entry into the preferences file for the current user that tells UTC to install plug-ins then exit. UTC won't be able to open normally until the preference is removed.
This command can be run using sudo to avoid having to update the preferences afterwards. To remove the preferences entry from the com.extensis.UniversalTypeClient.plist file of the current user:
defaults delete com.extensis.UniversalTypeClient "-HeadlessInstallTriggeredFromInstaller"
