Correct FP Sample Ownership and Rights & Ask for Permission

The following is on Mac:

The FP installer puts a folder of sample images in my Home/Pictures/ folder. It does so a) without asking for permission and b) with user and group ownership way out of standards for the folder (system/staff/everyone) and the included files (user/wheel/everyone).

I therefore propose the following amendments

  • Installer asks whether samples should be installed or not
  • Installer sets ownership according to the user’s home folder

Why: Not everyone wants or needs sample files … and we don’t want to have to enter credentials to remove those items either!

On Mac the samples are placed in your personal Picture file? On Windows they are placed properly in the Public file.

Yes, they are.

I totally agree.
And with the latest update, I’ve had to delete this folder again.

Btw, this is a request and I can’t vote for it !

That’s terrible!

Yes, voting seems to have been forgotten here…

There is no voting panel. Have they done away with voting?
