I need to install WacomTablet_6.3.36-2.dmg in my mac lab. I put the .dmg into Composer and created a .pkg and added a policy to install it. The policy logs say it successfully installed but it didn't. It is not in Applications nor does the tablet icon show up in System Preferences. I am new to Jamf. Is there another way I should be installing this?
No reason to reinvent the wheel. The way I do it is open up the DMG, rename the PKG with the version #, copy the PKG into JAMF Admin, create the install policy, and add the PKG as the install package.
I have an update policy that checks the Smart Computer Group policy that compares version with what I tell it is current. If it is out of date, the update policy triggers & runs the install policy. So when updating, update the install policy, then update policy & clear it's logs, then the Out of Date version check. Works for me every time.
Here's how I distribute the Wacom Driver
I found that running the installer from jamf directly, fails for me.
I have to get the pkg installer on to the machine, then run a script run the install locally.
Download Driver - https://www.wacom.com/en-us/support/product-support/drivers
(Creating a pkg, you can also use dmg. to get the original installer pkg on the machine)
Copy "Install Wacom Tablet.pkg" to mp (as is)
Drag in to Composer
Export pkg as wacom_tabletdriver_#.#.##-#.pkg
Upload to jamf admin
Policy to get the package installer on the machine and run the bellow script
installer -pkg "/tmp/Install Wacom Tablet.pkg" -target /
To get around the Kernel Extension approval prompt, I have this in a Kernel Ext Pr-Approve Profile
