I'm a relative newcomer to Linux. Lately, I've been using GNUCash,
but I've run into trouble trying to set things up so that the data
files are accessible my user account, as well as my wife's.
I have a user account created for both myself and my wife. I've
defined a group that contains both user accounts. I then went to the
directory where the GNUCash data files are located, and changed the
owning group so that we should both have access to the files. Problem
is that sometimes a new data file will be created, and it gets created
with a default permission that is accessible only for the current
Is there a better way to set things up so that more than one user can
access these files, and so that when new files are created in this
directory, they get a default access provided that allows both users
to use that file?
Thanks for any help!
