A lot of water has passed beneath the bridge since I wrote my last entry about Apples Terminal.app vs. iTerm. Apple has released Snow Leopard with, among other things, a much improved version of Terminal.app, which has gotten me to ditch iTerm again.
So, I bring to you a version of the script for opening a new terminal window on the currently active desktop space – the Terminal.app way:
tell application "System Events" set TerminalCount to (count (every process whose name is "Terminal")) end tell if (TerminalCount is not 0) then tell application "Terminal" do script activate end tell else tell application "Terminal" activate end tell end if
As usual: Save the script to a .scpt file, open it with Script Editor, save as an Application and place a shortcut in your Dock.
