Share Calendars and Address Books with multiple users
Authored by: edalzell on Mar 04, '03 11:52:45AM

I have done this for the Address Book, but I was unable to share Calendars (still trying though).

Initially, those instructions are valid. The problem is if one user modifies the Address Book, then the other user gets an empty address book!

This is due to the permissions. They are changed when the address book is modified to the current user. This makes it inaccessible to the other user.

I created a small script that is run at log on that chmod 666 the AddressBook.data file. This way all user can edit and access the file.
