Permissions on user's .qgis directory

Reported by: micha Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: LiveDVD Keywords: qgis permissions, 6.0


The directory ~user/.qgis is owned by root. As a result 'user' cannot install QGIS plugins.

perhaps we could fix this by simply adding to the installation script a:

#chown -R user:users /home/user/.qgis

Looking at beta1 gdal_pam folder exists in /home/user/.qgis/ but .qgis shouldn't exist until the first time QGIS is run. So what in our creation scripts is doing it?

I checked and the qgis packages installed via synaptic do not appear to create the mystery folder. If we can identify this we can actually fix the issue and not just work around it.

I also noticed in a fresh install of Ubuntu, after running apt-get install qgis that the .qgis was created with one file inside. Maybe a gdal package created this dir??

this sounds rather weird.

perhaps look in the qgis*.postinst scripts /var/lib/dpkg/info
