Gents,

Sorry to come back on this topic for the third time. But I have kept bashing at it and even gone to IRC on freenode to try to get help, but I think I need to re-state where I get stuck and then I will likely get hundreds of answers form the people that are used to applescript or services usage under Snow Leopard?

I am setting up org-mac-protocol as per instructions from https://github.com/claviclaws/org-mac-protocol/blob/master/org-mac-protocol.org

I get stuck trying to "use" it. Under "Usage" it says:

Usage

There are four scripts that can be invoked; org-link, org-link-tabs, org-note, and org-remember. These scripts can be called by various methods, for example, the Script menu<https://Applications/AppleScript/AppleScript%20Utility.app/> in the menu bar, Quicksilver<http://code.google.com/p/blacktree-alchemy/>, FastScripts<http://www.red-sweater.com/fastscripts/> etc.

Well, I don't have a Script menu, or am looking in the wrong place, and I also don't have Quicksilver (extinct?) or Fastscripts installed. The one "odd" bit following the instructions was that there was no "Scripts" dir under my ~/Library dir, but I thought this might be because this is the first time I am trying to setup and use a applescript under my Snow Leopard.

How do I tell the Snow Leopard OS that it needs to trigger the scripts I copied into the correct (?) places under:

~/Library/Scripts/org-link.scpt
                  org-link-tabs.scpt
                  org-remember.scpt
                  org-note.scpt
                  orgQSLib/escape.rb
                           getEmacsClient.scpt
                           getItemMetadata.scpt



What are the keypresses or triggers to activate the scripts when I am in Safari or another supported App? I feel like I have done all the work and all should be setup, but I don't know how to trigger it or switch it on?

Thanks.

I just saw this post and hope it isn't still an open issue, but in case it
is, take a look at <
http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20080315064646576> for advice on
how to enable script execution in OS X. Nothing specific to emacs or Org
mode.

Just as an update to that article, the correct place in Snow Leopard is
to launch "AppleScript Editor.app" which is in the Utilities folder in
the /Applications folder. The preferences for that application include
"Show Script menu in menu bar" which when checked will enable the script
menu. The preference option to "Show computer scripts" will show scripts
from /Library/Scripts to regardless of the logged in user. The "user"
scripts are in ~/Library/Scripts and each application can have specific
scripts in ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/<app-name>. Once the script
menu is enabled, the first item on the menu is "open scripts folder"
submenu that will let you open any of the valid locations in the Finder
(to, e.g. copy a script into).

Accessing AppleScripts via keyboard shortcuts is different, and the best
way to go mouseless on the Mac is to use any of a variety of 3rd party
keyboard launchers. I've used Quicksilver in the past, I'm using
LaunchBar now, there is also Butler, Chronos F10 Launch Studio, and even
though the name doesn't indicate it TextExpander can call applescripts
via command keys.
