Do you mean just "permissions"
--- or ownership, group membership and ACL
s as well?
It takes more than a single command to cover everything. I believe my old homeACLtool
script still functions in 10.6 —but that's just for ACLs.
The utility you mentioned (on the install dvd) does the whole megillah... including setting the group on [changed] items to 'wheel
' for some strange reason (IIRC).
Actually, I'm not even 100% certain what the exercise accomplishes, in the first place.
If you're not having a specific problem,
then perhaps "exercise" is the right word. OTOH, if someone is being denied access to some items inside their own home
, then maybe "solution" is a more appropriate description.
