Problems with permissions after installing AUR packages

When installing AUR packages, it very often happens that I have huge problems with permissions.

Installed files are all from user:group root:root and have permissions set only on root (600 or 700). So I have to clean the mess before I can use anything at all.

Why does this happen and how do I fix it?

Which package and how did you install it?

I used “Add/remove software”

I have problems with “teams” (Microsoft Teams)
and with “librewolf-bin”

This is extremely annoying. For example “teams” does not even work if I correct the permissions.

And it very often happens after update. It breaks everything.

I found the cause myself. I had the AUR Build Directory set to an mounted NTFS partition. WHen I moved the build dir back to /tmp/ everything works ok now.
