    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
    ....

    ...
    
    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.

    While I still think it is odd that it didn't work, I figured out the easy solution.
    Using file sharing works but technically offering all the files in a network is not what I want.
    I hope I assume right that as long as everyone is set to no access that means nobody that I do not authorize has no access.

    I could throw it out the Window. I am not allowed to open any subfolders. No permissions. WTF.
