I have a Leopard Server updated to 10.5.7 up and running at home, and all users have their own accounts and home folders on the server. I have noticed that some apps, (e.g. Unison, Calibre, The Sims), refuse to run when logged on as a network user, but run fine from an account on the local client.

I sent a support request to the author of Calibre, and he said something about just creating a symbolic link. I have googled this subject, but have not been able to find anything that is straightforward enough for me to understand. I have a feeling it is a simple answer (I hope) but that I am just not familiar enough with server and os x to make it work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
