OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Making And Sharing User Accounts?

Apr 4, 2012

I need to duplicate my admin account to a new user account( admin) that will let me access the entire volume and all the data within.  

I have tried -  

1. I have turned on File sharing from System Preferences, shared the new user account (Also everyone), added files/folders to share the entire original user folder...gave all users Read and Write permission...just about everything...

2. I have run Disk Utility and repaired permissions ( the report said some permissions can't be repaired)

3. I have done everything the manuals here have asked me to do...

4. Went to each folder->Get Info->checked Shared Folder. Even after that folders in the new account it says- I have no access( remember I am an admin the new account too) 

Info:
MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iPhone 4, iOS 5.1

OS X :: Making IPhoto Photos Available To Other User Accounts?

Jul 8, 2010

My daughter has a separate user account on my iMac. If I upload photos from my camera to iPhoto, they are then available on my user account.

I haven't found an easy way to make the same photos, or selected photos, available to my daughter when she opens iPhoto on her user account.

I have only found cumbersome ways involving exporting individual photos, but there must be an easy way to make a group of 30 or so available to her.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: File Sharing (Read Only) Between User Accounts

Apr 6, 2012

Every file created within the Shared folder is automatically a "read-only" for all other users. How can I make all users able to edit all files within the Shared folder? - The "Apply to enclosed items" does only apply settings to existing files. This means that for every new file you add, you have to press "Apply to enclosed items". - Surely there must be a way to apply the folders setting to all future content?All I want is for this folder to function as any external hard drive; accessible by all accounts without any restrictions!

ITunes :: Sharing Music Folder Between User Accounts?

Jul 1, 2012

I would like to have my music library available for my wife on a different user account on my iMac under Lion. The music library is on an external drive on my LAN 

When I try to select it as the source of music in my wife's account, there are no errors, but nothing happens, the music is not added to her iTunes, it just stays in the welcome screen, where to find music, etc. 

I read a tutorial on moving the library to a shared folder, but I am hoping I do not have to do that. The drive is available to her library, just that nothing happens after I select it.

Applications :: ITunes Sharing Between User Accounts - Finding Guide

Feb 2, 2010

My wife and I have been refrencing the same iTunes library from our individual user accounts in our shared folder on our unibody MacBook for over a year now. Why is it that when I add something to the library, either a purchase from the iTunes store or whatever, it doesn't show up in my wife's library automatically? It has to be added manually on her account.

Now, when she buys a song from iTunes, it downloads to her user account's iTunes music folder, not to the shared folder. Then if I want the song in my library, I have to manually add it. We're both using the same iTunes store user account. There HAS to be an easier way to do this. We both have the "keep iTunes library orginized" checked.

OS X :: Creating New User Accounts In Snow Leopard

Dec 28, 2010

As an administrator (without FileVault protection) on Snow Leopard, I created a standard user account (test user1) with FileVault protection. I just want to get familiar with it before creating real accounts. But as an administrator I can't look at files created by test user1. I get a message that I don't have permission.

Do I need FileVault on for the administrator in order to do this? If not, as an administrator, why can't I see what's on other user is doing? Is there a way as an administrator I can see what's files are downloaded, created, websites visited, etc? I'm aware of creating a user account with Parental controls, but would that give me the ability to see what's in the folder?

Intel Mac :: During Gmail Upgrade, Standard User Accounts Changed To Mobileme Accounts?

Jun 28, 2012

I am not sure how it happened but after upgrading the gmail account, the user accounts were changed from standard users to Mobile Me users.  None of the users has ever had that type of account, and I am trying to figure out how to get it back to a standard user account.  When the user attempts to log in, it asks for the user name, but also the Mobile Me user name (which they do not have).  to make it worse, Mobile Me is no longer accpting new users, so I annot just add an account and log in using the new info.

OS X :: Making Files Accessible To All Accounts On Same Computer

Mar 14, 2009

I've got a new macbook and I've divided it into two accounts. One account has all my iTunes music but the other is a fresh iTunes with no music.

I've been trying to get access to the music from the other account. It seems like it should be easy as it's already on this computer. I've tried copying the iTunes folder into the public folder and going to the other account and copying it to it but that's not working.

Intel Mac :: Cannot Change Admin User To Standard User (2 Admin Accounts)

Mar 6, 2012

When I purchased my iMac a few years ago, I created one user account and just started using my computer.  I am trying to implement a few Safe Computing practices by creating a new Admin user account and changing my original user account to a Standard user.   

For some reason, I cannot change either of the accounts to a standard user after I type in the password.  I've logged in as both and tried to change the other user profile to a standard user, but the checkbox is greyed out on both of the Admin User accounts.    

I can create a new standard user, but I have everyting set the way I like it on my current Admin user account.  It would be much easier to have a new Admin User account and "Downgrade" my original Admin account to a standard user account.   

why the option to change from an Admin user to a standard user would be "Greyed Out"?  The support articles walk me through, what should be a few simple steps, but I can not change the settings because the checkbox is greyed out.

iMac 24", Mac OS X (10.6.4)

OS X :: Making Another Folder Available For Web Sharing?

Apr 30, 2009

Typically web sharing (found in the Sharing section of system prefs) allows other computers to access your "/Users/[username]/Sites/" directory. However I have MAMP installed so my local sites have to exist in the "/Applications/MAMP/htdocs" directory. Is there anyway to make the web sharing directory point to this one instead?

I found this:

[URL]

And I tried changing the path in my [username].conf file to:

<Directory "/Applications/MAMP/htdocs">

OS X :: Sharing ITunes And IPhoto Across Accounts?

Jun 26, 2009

We picked up our first Mac yesterday, a 13" uMBP. I upgraded the HDD and the RAM last night and reinstalled all of the software, so it is good to go. I have a question regarding multiple accounts though, and sharing librabries.

My wife and I will each have an account on the Mac, to keep our docs and email separate. However, I want a single iPhoto library, and a single iTunes library for us both to use and sync to. I see in my account, I have Music, Pictures, Movies, etc folders, and a Public folder. As it stands, my iPhoto library is saved in my Pictures folder, which I assume my wife could not access from her account by default. Am I correct in thinking that I want to move the library to the Public folder, and then point her iPhoto to the library in the Public folder, and then we would both be accessing and working from the same library? the same would hold true for iTunes, videos, etc?

Applications :: Sharing ITunes Between Accounts On A Single Mac?

Jan 3, 2009

I had this working a while back... but (I can only think it's since I upgraded to iTunes 8) this has now stopped working...

1. I have moved my iTunes Music folder to /users/shared...

2. I go into iTunes preferences and change the location of the Music Library...

3. Restart iTunes...

4. Then I go into iTunes and it works - it's reading songs and movies from the shared location fine...

When I login as a different user (any admin user), repeat steps 2 and 3 and nothing - the library is empty when it's restarted

I also tried this hack from another site around 18 months ago...

[URL]

The instructions are pretty much the same, although this involves creating aliases of the iTunes music library.xml file - but didn't seem to make any difference to the outcome

OS X :: Two Accounts Sharing One ITunes Library/database?

Nov 18, 2009

I will soon be setting up an 27" iMac i7 as a single home computer to store the "original copies" of all our important media and documents... as well as being a convenient place to edit pictures and other complex jobs. I will set up two accounts, one each for my wife an I so that we have our own environments to augment our personal laptops (MBP/MBA). This computer will have a good automatic onsite & offisite backup strategy in place to protect our data. We can also share personal data with our laptops via iDisk in Mobile Me.

We will want to keep most things separate... but we do have some data that is shared between the two of us. One particular example is our iTunes music collection.

Now for my question: Is there a way to have both accounts on this computer use the same iTunes library AND also the same database? What I would like is that if either of us is using the computer in our own account... that we see the exact same iTunes library/database. Hence, for example, if either of us buys more music, that we would both see the new music.

If this is not possible... I will just load the music into one account... and use sharing on the other account. Managing two independent databases is too complex, and can lead to losing data.

I currently have a similar setup with a PC... with the data only loaded into one of our accounts. I figured that since I am moving fully to the iMac, then it might be a good time to make an improvement with our music as well.

OS X :: New MBP Setup And User Accounts

Dec 24, 2010

This is my first post as the soon to be proud owner of a 2010 13" MBP. I'm looking to copy all tunes/photos/settings from my 2006 mini and of course I've got questions:

1- Anyone do a new setup via wireless? I'm going to use a Linksys wireless N and was curious on a time estimate (I know its gonna be slow...).
2- The mini has all settings under my wife's user account...if I just transfer everything as is then I'll end up with my new MBP info being under her name as well. How can I get the files and settings that are under her name to show up under mine on the new MBP?

OS X :: How To Remove All User Accounts

Dec 28, 2008

I'm the only person who uses my Mac, and wanted to know if I could completely get rid of user accounts. I have no password set, so it's really just a waste of time to have to press "OK" everytime I need to authorize anything.

Is there anyway I could eliminate ever having to authorize anything on Leopard or remove the need for a user account?

OS X :: Two People Sharing One Copy Of Mail Without Using Separate Accounts?

Nov 17, 2010

My wife and I have 3 email accounts between us (1 personal one each and a joint email for stuff like banks and bills etc.) When we first got an Imac I set all 3 accounts up in MacMail and ran 3 different inboxes which worked ok apart from the fact that when sending emails we would sometimes mistakenly send our emails from the wrong account (eg my wife would send something from my account or vice versa)

this isn't a huge problem and with a bit of concentration would not happen, however it was inconvenient and needless to say I was kicked out of Mail and had to seek refuge in a copy of Thunderbird. (which I just can't to seem to get along with)

Since then I have been trying to find a way for 2 people to co exist in mail without using 2 separate accounts on the mac (this is not an option as the wife won't have it!!)

Is there anyway to run 2 separate Mail programs in one account?

If we do end up having to share one version of mail does anyone having any tips on reducing the likelihood of sending emails from the wrong accounts?

OS X :: Admin And Standard Accounts Setup - File Sharing

Dec 23, 2008

I am getting my first mac for christmas (a 24" imac) and am planning to setup 3 accounts:
1 for me (admin)
Another one for me (standard)
1 for my brother (standard)

I plan to use the standard one for me as my main account but when installing apps and the like plan to switch to the admin one. What I was wondering is, as far as a I can tell from apple is that if I put music on my standard account my brother would not be able to see the music files, the same for pictures and movies. I would like to be able to share the music files and some pictures across both of our accounts. Would putting the music in itunes from the admin account make this possible and what about pictures? I would also like to keep some pictures private, as would he.
