Share one Address Book among multiple users
Authored by: edalzell on Dec 04, '04 07:38:02PM

If you don't want to put the files on a seperate volume, you need something like WinSwitch, that runs a script when you switch users.

I have a script that goes through the appropriate directories and sets the permissions to all (777) when a FUS is done. This way all the permissions are always correct even if the app changes them (like addressbook). You just have to remember to set the setuid bit so the script is run as root.

Now, I don't have WinSwitch (I got a friend to write a little app that handles it), but I believe it will handle this just fine.
