    go into the config program and tick use alternative save dir and put in h: /u: /whatever you want though id be tempted to add drive\tuxpaint. If its installed locally rather than a shared drive then you need to get the c:\prog...\tuxpaint\tuxpaint.cfg file distributed to apply the changes to other pcs

    My config file has savedir=N:\Tux Paint\ and that is working fine for us. Did you have a trailing \ on yours?

    Have finally had chance to visit this and have decided that the Penguin is evil!! I just cant get it to save where i want! It runs from the server but its almost like its ignoring the config file as i've told it to start on a blank page which it isnt...i've noticed its path is P:\Apps and not \\curricsvr1\apps...would that make a difference?

    where is the config file kept? my users are using mandatory profiles, so the config file is install somewhere in the users profile.

    yes it would make a difference it should be something like \\curricsvr1\apps

    Does this mean having to do something with the App data folder in the GPO?

    Right, Tux config file is store in this location

    \\curricsvr1\profiles\MandatoryProfile\Application Data\TuxPaint

    all my users run a mandatory profile so all users get the same profile

    in that folder is a "tuxpaint.cfg" file

    my reads the following

    # Generated by tuxpaint-config version 0.0.11
    fullscreen=yes
    lang=british
    altprint=always
    savedir=//curricsvr2/common/TuxPaint/saved/
    startblank=yes

    Hope this helps

    the app data seems to be a red herring ive just installed and fiddled and as long as i change tuxpaint.cfg in r:\programs\tuxpaint (and make sure i select ALL users in the config page) the setting seem to apply wether or not there is a file in docs and settings

    DUDE! That's it!

    I now have a save folder for the user. Theres lot of other bits in there...is there a way to get rid of that? I specified H:\TuxPaint. But they have to go into anoter folder called saved, and then theres a thumbs folder....

    And what do you mean by select ALL users?
