Hi daniel, I wasn't able to reproduce with 16.04. Did you install the regular Ubuntu desktop, or a specific flavour?

I select only default options + [Ubuntu Desktop] installation. What you expected to happen: My home folder contains the following folders with correct and safe permissions after the first login: drwx------ 11 user user 4096 Dec 2 17:40 .config drwx------ 3 user user 4096 Dec 2 17:39 .local What happened instead: I received these folders after the first login: drwxr-xr-x 11 user user 4096 Dec 2 17:40 .config drwxr-xr-x 3 user user 4096 Dec 2 17:39 .local It is not safe. Any user can access to my .config folders and read for example my mail databases I'm trying to create a new user...: sudo useradd -m user2 sudo passwd user2 ... and login then. It has the same problem: drwxr-xr-x 10 user2 user2 4096 Dec 2 19:44 .config drwxr-xr-x 3 user2 user2 4096 Dec 2 19:44 .local To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/dconf/+bug/1735929/+subscriptions -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~dx-packages Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~dx-packages More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
