I cannot get it done. I am trying to give user B access to the private Folders of user A. For some reason my Downlaods folder is readable but Pictures, Music is not. I tried to simply give the group rw permissions and terminal says it worked. But I cannot access the folder 'Pictures' with the cd command nor do I see any content in the finder. It is annoying I am only using user B because A is buggy. Code: MBP:A B$ ls l@e .... drwxrw----+ 40 A staff 1360 Sep 12 16:47 Documents 0: group:everyone deny delete drwxr-xr-x 35 A staff 1190 Sep 12 19:36 Downloads drwx------ 11 A staff 374 Sep 12 16:47 Dropbox drwxrw----+ 65 A staff 2210 Sep 12 12:05 Library 0: group:everyone deny delete drwxrwxr-x 65 A staff 2210 Sep 12 17:09 Movies drwxrw-r-x 5 A staff 170 Sep 12 16:47 Music drw-rw----@ 107 A staff 3638 Sep 12 18:32 Pictures com.apple.metadata:kMDItemFinderComment 72 0: group:everyone deny delete drwxr-xr-x+ 7 A staff 238 Sep 12 16:47 Public 0: group:everyone deny delete drwxr-xr-x+ 5 A staff 170 Sep 12 16:47 Sites 0: group:everyone deny delete drwxr-xr-x@ 7 A staff 238 Sep 12 16:47 SkyDrive ... B$ cd Pictures -bash: cd: Pictures: Permission denied I don't want to chown because that would probably completely kill A and I still might need A. Movies is accessible but it also is not the original but well it doesn't count it is not exactly the Apple folder. Pictures and Documents is still original OSX folders un touched except for the additional group permissions but i cannot read them form B.
