Sharing between two users
Authored by: airdrummer on Jun 24, '09 05:40:45AM
i think you mean:
mv ~/Music/iTunes /Users/Shared/Music/iTunes.local
mv "~/Pictures/iPhoto Library" "/Users/Shared/Pictures/iPhoto Library.local"

and then for each user:
ln -s ~/Music/iTunes to ~/Music/iTunes.local
ln -s "/Users/Shared/Pictures/iPhoto Library.local" "~/Pictures/iPhoto Library"

i think that would work (after setting permissions or ACLs so all had rw access) but i think there'd be contention on simultaneous write access...

Sharing between two users
Authored by: atonaldenim on Jun 26, '09 12:31:50PM

I use essentially this same method to share my iTunes library between two local users on my Mac. The only problem I can think of after a year or so of doing this, is that after installing any iTunes updates, the permissions on the shared iTunes library are reset. I have to manually give the other user read-write permissions on the shared iTunes folder.
