    I am finally upgrading my MBP from Tiger to Leopard. I want to share iPhoto, iTunes, iWeb, iMovie, etc between users on my MBP.

    I had Tiger set up the way I wanted it using ACL and a /User/Shared folder. I simply had moved iPhoto, iTunes, iWeb and iMovie libraries there and it worked great.

    I have played around a bit on Leopard and noticed that there is already a /User/Shared folder. I was hoping that this folder allowed for full read/write access for all users but it doesn't. I think there is a way to do this using the Sharing preferences but I'm not sure. I don't think using ACLs is the right answer?

    Please let me know if you have done something like this and how you did it. Thanks in advance,

    Have you tried changing permissions on the shared folder? (get info on folder-permissions)
    Also, hold option while launching iTunes, iPhoto. It will allow you to choose a library to use.
