Warning: directory permissions

(150/322) upgrading gdm                            [######################] 100%
warning: directory permissions differ on /var/lib/gdm/.local/
filesystem: 755  package: 700 

I got the above message during the last stable update. A message just like that was mentioned in the stable updates known issues section but for dhcpcd and not gdm.

So I just would like to know should I change the permissions on this folder to 700 and more generally should warnings like these be followed?

Thank you for the information!

It is best to follow the official filesystem permissions guideline, so yes, you should… :arrow_down:

sudo chmod 700 /var/lib/gdm/.local

… just so as to avoid potential permissions problems with gdm.
