10.4: Hide the Spotlight Privacy tab from general view
Authored by: cilly on Jul 05, '06 05:34:49PM

Since of 10.4.7 Apple solved the Spotlight bug and Spotlight only lists search results the other users have permissions to read. Just make sure, you set the private home folder with chmod go-rwx, i.e. chmod go-rwx /Users/<yourusername>. (The example will disable Public and Sites, too. If you do not want that, choose only selectiv folders to chmod. chmod o-rwx might be sufficiant since mostly each user has it's own group. For myself execpt Public and Sites all files have chmod goo-rwx set.)

So there is no need for this tipp, if you are running 10.4.7.
