Description Paolo Bonzini 2017-07-22 10:03:40 EDT
Description of problem:
Comes up at startup.
SELinux is preventing gnome-settings- from 'setattr' accesses on the directory /usr/lib/fontconfig/cache.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

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