Prevent .ds_store creation across multiple user accounts
Authored by: charlietuna on Dec 07, '05 04:07:08AM

This is a tedious way to solve a problem. If the problem is that .DS_ files are being written to a network server, tell the network server to veto those files.

For samba, look at the man page for smb.conf and review the veto files parameter. You'll also need to consider how to handle the deletion of folders which ONLY contain a vetoed file, and there's a samba configuration parameter for that too.

That implies you have access to the server to configure it. Or a sysadmin who won't just tell you to "Use a PC"
