OK, I'm a certified Apple fan-boy but there are at least a dozen (or more) things that just REALLY annoy me with Apple. One of the big ones is multiple users using the same Mac.
For example, I have a 27" iMac (Snow Leopard) that has four accounts. Two admins (my wife and I) and two kids. With one of the kids being a restricted account (locked down for 8 year old).
Anyway, I also have a MBP that I use for development. 100% of my code is in my DropBox folder. That folder is also on the iMac. So when I update my code, the changes get synced to the iMac.
However, there are many problems. First, the DropBox location on the iMac is in the Shared folder. But I STILL get permission problems with the other accounts. Even the other admin account. I have gone in and told the OS to give read/write permissions (and all sub folders) to all accounts in the DropBox folder. Still doesn't work.
I constantly get access denied on the other accounts accessing that folder. My guess is because I am creating the file on my MBP and sending over with MY account.
Should I create the same users on my MBP and give them access? That seems ridiculous.
Any other suggestions?
EDIT By DropBox, I mean the SERVICE DropBox. I want the DropBox folder to be read/write for all users because we also use it for photos, etc.
