This is a little guide to describe how to setup
for multiple users on a LAN. Each user has their own settings and folder
file, but shares the same executable.
To start with lets assume that the everyone has their H: drive mapped to
the same place on the file server. Firstly setup a standard Scribe install
in H:\Scribe and give all users read only access to that directory.
Then for each user you create a directory in H: for their options and folder
file. Lets take a user "John" for example, who has read/write access to the
directory H:\John. On John's desktop or start menu the administrator would
create a shortcut with the following command:
Target: "H:\Scribe\Scribe.exe" /oH:\John\scribe.r
The administrator should run the shortcut and create the folder file
"H:\John\Folders.mail2". After which the install for John is complete.
Global plugins can be installed under H:\Scribe as per a normal Scribe
Administrators can set overriding options by creating a text file
"H:\Scribe\lgi.conf" which of course the users can't edit because they
only have read only access to H:\Scribe.
The options available are:
|Specify an admin password. Where 'password' is generated by the
command line admin password generator tool. You will need to provide users
with read access to the lgi.conf file for these features to work, thus
there can't be a clear text password here.
|Specify an action to take when the application is closed. This
parameter is ignored if the OS itself is shutting down so that Scribe
doesn't hang up the shutdown.
Available options for 'action' are:
- compact - deletes the trash folders contents and compacts.
- minimize - instead of exiting, minimize. Override with Ctrl + File->Exit.
|Set admin only privledges for read and/or write
access to the account settings. The available settings
for 'level' are:
- 'user' - user password required.
- 'admin' - admin password required.
|Set privledges for read and/or write
access on specific folders. 'path' should be something like '\Inbox\Notices'.
As well as any of the other lgi.conf
