i put this question on apple support community but feel like ill get the answer faster here

i want my user group on my xserve to have right click enable

is there a way to do this on the server with out touching every machine? apple really should have right click enable by default but my users need it and touching every machine is time consuming.

also let me add that i know i can enable the mouse settings to be viewable by the users but explaining to every person how to do it also time consuming and task in its own

I think you can but you have to alter the preferences for each preference file for the type of mouse, for instance, on mine I have

com.apple.driver.AppleHIDMouse.plist

com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.mouse.pl ist

How many users are we taling about here?

Did you do it through the profile manager Custom settings?
