Description kakoskin 2016-09-28 08:13:54 UTC
Description of problem:
I tried to change directory XFCE uses to find background images. Directory in question appears to be my home directory, which is not fuse mounted. I have some sshfs directories mounted inside my home directory but I was not accessing them when this error occured.
SELinux is preventing lightdm from 'write' accesses on the directory huginn.

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (89.3 confidence) suggests   ******************

If you want to allow use to fusefs home dirs
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'use_fusefs_home_dirs' boolean.
You can read 'None' man page for more details.
Do
setsebool -P use_fusefs_home_dirs 1

*****  Plugin catchall (11.6 confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that lightdm should be allowed write access on the huginn directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
Do
allow this access for now by executing:
# ausearch -c 'lightdm' --raw | audit2allow -M my-lightdm
# semodule -X 300 -i my-lightdm.pp

Comment 1 kakoskin 2016-09-28 11:26:45 UTC
I am getting this denial even before mounting any fuse file systems in my home directory.

Kakoskin, 

FIX is included in your report: 

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (89.3 confidence) suggests   ******************

If you want to allow use to fusefs home dirs
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'use_fusefs_home_dirs' boolean.

setsebool -P use_fusefs_home_dirs 1

Comment 3 kakoskin 2016-09-30 21:37:26 UTC
I apologise for the mess my mistake has caused.

Issue was caused by mislabeling entire home directory to system_u:object_r:fusefs_t by mistyped command "cp -a .* ~/". 

Is there any reason to allow users to set the context of any file to system_u:object_r:fusefs_t outside of actual fuse mounts?
