anyone played around with trying to enable this setting in their images? I had hoped that ```
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow showInputMenu 1
``` would do the trick, but no.
So, I did a little further investigation with FSEventer, and it looks like the OS is changing something in the /System/Library/Privateframeworks/EFI.loginframework/Versions/A/Resources/EFIResourceBuilder.bundle/Contents directory . . . but none of the text files are changing in there, so I'm stuck.
Anyone attempted this by packaging up those files? I'm beginning to think I may just ask my EMEA colleagues to set that manually post-image.
Great minds eh? I was just playing with those earlier.
The below MCX seems to work for 10.6-10.7-10.8. But it doesn't update the tick box in Users & Groups.
It does show @ the login window though.
Display Name: Login Window Show Input Menu Application Domain: com.apple.loginwindow Key Name: showInputMenu Key Type: boolean Key Value: true
I stopped using Config profiles for the window as wanted this very setting.
This might help too, although i've not had the need to try this since 10.6. http://macmule.com/2011/03/02/setting-user-os-language-post-install-from-casper/
interesting- I tried the boolean -true command and saw that it hadn't checked the box is SysPrefs, so I never logged out to check the login window!
I forgot to mention that I was rushing and tested this on a machine that was FV2 encrypted. I think that's why the EFI framework was involved for me. I'll test again on a non encrypted box.
