Folder doesn't exist - is this X.1 only?
Authored by: JoeHope on Oct 10, '01 07:31:40PM

I thought I'd look at the defaults and discovered that there is no UserTemplate folder anywhere in the filesystem. Is this an X.1 hack only? I'm still on 10.0.4.

I guess it is 10.1 only...I can't remember ever seeing this on 10.0.4 but as I don't have it to verify anymore, I guess I'll never know for sure ;-)

One glitch in my instructions is that my backup method for the UserTemplate directory will not work unless you are logged in as root.

An alternative for this step is

sudo cp -R /System/Library/UserTemplate ~username

where ~username is of course your username
