Re: Solutions for the following use case scenario

Dear everybody,

thanks again for your support. I took the plunge today and so I am
reporting back to the list.

I am using Debian Sid, so some permissions might be set up differently
in other distributions.

So I created a symbolic link from

$ ln -s /home/a/.gnome2/f-spot ~/.gnome2/f-spot

for user b.

Fabian was correct pointing this out. Under Debian I had to add a and b
to the group users

$ sudo adduser a users
$ sudo adduser b users

and then I issued his commands (actually chgrp just worked with super
user privileges)

> "chgrp -R users ~/.gnome2/f-spot"
> "chmod -R g+w ~/.gnome2/f-spot"

But under Debian Sid I also had to ensure that the upper directory can
be traversable (?) (executed). So I had to do

$ chmod o+x ~/.gnome2

Then I started

f-spot &

as user b. I found out that the name for the import folder is not stored
in ~/.gnome2/f-spot/ so I had to change this manually.

Also I noticed that the thumbnails/previews are generated separately for
each user.

And now my question. Do you have an idea how to manage the right in the
import folder? I think the files are created according to the umask. But
I prefer the setting for my usual files/folders (no write rights for
everyone besides me for files or folders). But now if in my import
folder b created 2008, a cannot import any pictures. Do you have a
elegant solution how to solve this, besides doing

$ chgrp -R users /path/to/import-folder
$ chmod -R g+w /path/to/import-folder

Thanks a lot,
