View Full Version : Config files when adding a new user account?

10-17-2006, 08:28 AM
Can someone point me to the FAQ that covers adding a new user account in OS-X with Lightwave?

My machine is being moved to someone else, so we're setting up a new account for her. When I start up LW on her account it works fine, but it refuses to save the config. I tried copying the config files from my account to the new account and nothing happened.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get LW to work with a new user account?

Hi Paul,

What is it doing now? Does it not run at all, or is it having problems finding the config files?

It runs just fine, but there are no config files being written to the new user's preferences folder. When I try to add plug-ins and set up the interface, then quit and restart, it forgets everything.

My first guess is that it's using the CFG files from my account - or at least trying to - and when it exits, it can't write anything to them because of how OS-X handles permissions.
