#147 closed task (fixed)

to enable ARD on OSX, we need the user's password - provide a way to request it

Reported by: Antoine gmail Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.12
Component: OSX Build Keywords:


The command used for toggling ARD on or off requires authentication, at the moment we don't keep the password (we should - but only for platforms that are known to require it: osx) and we need a way to request it if we do not have it (key login).

Then we can use the password to enable ARD if it is not enabled (and potentially other things - auto-start?)

v0.12.0 keeps the password and uses it interactively with sudo (via LineProcess?) to start and stop ARD. See r3826

This will do for now: we just tell the user to supply a password when one is not available.
