Anyone with admin access would be able to install/uninstall Krisp through Terminal on Mac. The option is intended for the IT team with admin access to run shell scripts to install/uninstall Krisp remotely and in bulk.

 

Install Krisp through Terminal using an XML file as a parameter

When using an XML file as a parameter for the installation, you can have the following three results:

  1. Install Krisp with the Video feature and not launch the app after installation (1_with_video_not_launch file attached to the article)
  2. Install Krisp without the Video feature and launch the app after the installation (2_without_video_launch file attached to the article)
  3. Install Krisp without the Video feature and not launch the app after the installation (3_without_video_not_launch file attached to the article)

You can run the installer in the Terminal using the following syntax:

sudo installer -pkg PKG_PATH -target / -applyChoiceChangesXML XML_PATH


PKG_PATH
being the installer package path and XML_PATH being the corresponding XML file path that will give you the needed result after the installation.

If no XML file is used, Krisp will be installed with the Video feature and will launch after the installation.

 

Install Krisp through Terminal using a command line (deprecated)

The process can be done in two ways:

  1. Regular installation or launching the app after the installation

    The regular installation through Terminal gives you the same result as the installation through the installer package. In this case, however, you get the chance to install on multiple devices at the same time. Krisp will start running after the installation. The users will have both the Krisp Audio and Krisp Video features.

    Use the following command:

    $ installer -pkg PKG_PATH -target /


    PKG_PATH
    being the installer package path.

  2. Silent installation or not launching the app after the installation

    The silent installation is intended for unattended installation and deployment of Krisp. Krisp won't start running after the installation. The users will need to open it manually or wait for the next reboot. They will have both the Krisp Audio and Krisp Video features.


    Use the following commands:

    $ touch /tmp/do_not_launch_Krisp

    $ installer -pkg PKG_PATH -target /

    $ rm /tmp/do_not_launch_Krisp


    PKG_PATH
    being the installer package path.

Uninstall Krisp through Terminal

You can choose to uninstall Krisp through the Terminal when you want to remove it from one or more devices simultaneously. You will need the uninstall script for that.

Use the following command:

$ zsh /Applications/krisp.app/Contents/Resources/KrispUninstallerScript.zsh
