How do I give subset of users full access to 'joes' account, but not vice-versa?
I want to create a user I'll call demouser whose home directory will be where the developers in my group put final versions of their apps for demos.
The idea basically is that the developers will do all their coding, buildng etc, then dump their apps/data in a specificy folder under /home/demouser. Then at some later date, the demouser can log in and run the apps. One catch is, I don't want demouser to be able to access any of the other developers/users accounts/files.
I created the account 'demouser' and created a unique group for it, then added the desired users to the 'demouser' group. After I did this, I tried to 'ls /home/demouser' and got an 'access denied' message. I actually had to change the permissions on the folder to read/write/exeecute for the desired users.
What is the proper way to acheive what I am trying to do?
