Easily send a file to another user
Authored by: jwoolson on Dec 25, '04 08:31:29PM

If you *trust* the other user(s) on your Mac, just set the r/w/x privileges on all the Desktop folders (or, if you REALLY trust them, ALL of the user subfolders) of each user can set to r/w/x.

Use BatCHMOD to change all the User folders to r/w/x. If you're comfortable with Terminal, use sudo chmod instead.

Easily send a file to another user

Ironically the desktop folder seems to get its permissions set so everyone can access it quite often.

But no modification needs be done.... just put an alias of both drop-folders on the desktop... one coming, one going.

If you really want the items on the desktop, write a folder action for the incoming folder.
