OSX: "better" install disk #512

See attached screenshot (and r837 ): this is what I am working on in
As an update of the install disk is needed for issue 432 (exporting functions to ReaScript) so the idea is to take this opportunity to:
Feedback and better ideas about reascript wappers installation are more than welcome!
Note: ATM I'm stuck because of a bug in DMG Canvas, see r837 comments..

That looks good. I'm surprised you got this to work!! When I first made the OSX installer I found that it was impossible (OS limitation) to make shortcuts to places in the user's home dir. Are you using some sort of trick? (Make sure you verify the shortcut actually points to ~ and not /home/jf) pkg-dmg seems to work really well and is easy.
Btw, to make the .ds_store file I just made a directory look the way I wanted it to with Finder and then copied the .ds_store file to /trunk/Install/sws_osx_install.dsstore. No fancy tools needed.

I find you a bit picky Tim! That's not a big deal, really.. Users just have to create a "Jeff" account and install REAPER & SWS there! hahaha ha!
... more serioulsy: yes, I first thought I found a good trick on the web to achieve drag from .dmg -> drop in ~ but it turned out it sucks..
Nothing to see (but interesting):
