Am trying to set find out about the intricacies of the Multi-users feature. Am using a G4 Cube, Mac OS 9.0.4. I have set up a user for this computer, and although the user seems to be able to customise most everything, it appears that the Control Panel is not forthcoming with the changes he needs. In particular, changing the desktop picture, which revrts back to my desktop when he logs out and stays there, even when he logs back in. He is a normal user, and can access the Appearances control panel, it allows him to make the changes, but they don't get 'remembered' when he logs out.
I have spent the past week trying to get this simple feature to work, and for the life of me, I don't know why it's not working: I don't want to go round deleting the prefs for this, in case I mess it up.
Please, I hope someone can help me out: I have been stuck at this, and I really don't know where I am going wrong.

Many thanx in advance ,

If you take a look at various forums you will see you are not alone.

Just look in the OS forum and multiusers.
As a man comes, so he departs.
