I retired in 2006 and bought Mathematica and a stack of math books with the goal to teach myself to become a world-class mathematician. I am on pace to achieve that goal sometime shortly after the next Ice Age.

I consider myself a Mathematical Mutt (no papers) who occasionally ventures off the back porch to play in the yard with the big dogs.

I donate regularly to the The OEIS Foundation.

When I look at the patterns, I can hear the wheels turning. When I look at the math, I find out the hamsters have died.

Thanks. I think I have enough info to make it work.

Is there a way to have each file in that directory owned by 'fred' even if it is created by 'root'?

@b.gatessucks, I believe that is the case. I will make sure the notebooks are in user 'fred' directories. However, if I change any Mathematica settings, I want them to persist for both users. As I have it set up now, both my email and browser are not persistent when I switch user.

Tried it. Still no root login. It set the password, however I think the "no root login" setting is still set somewhere. I don't have a clue.

@slashmais, suid did not fix it. Nice idea, though!
