User-specific changes
Authored by: benjaminpg on Jun 18, '03 12:28:14PM

Does any one know if I can modify the plist in MY user preferences folder, so it doesn't affect all users on the machine?

Thanks,
Benjamin

User-specific changes

I don't believe this is possible unless there were a way to have the Dock reference a file in the user's preferences folder which contains the commands instead of referencing the file burried in the System folder.

Use separate Dock apps for each user
Authored by: VRic on Jun 21, '03 03:39:14AM

This should work:

- remove Dock.app from its normal location (beware that future updates may try to update it there)
- duplicate it into each user's folder
- edit each user's Dock.app to fit their needs
- add each Dock.app to each user's login items (the mac will be angry if Dock.app doesn't launch after login, it's OK to quit it later though, and it won't relaunch automatically since it's not where it's supposed to be)
