Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212787
wrong permissions on /usr/share/compiz, /usr/lib/compiz

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #212093 +++
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. remove the compiz rpm
2. manually remove /usr/share/compiz
3. reinstall the compiz rpm
4. as non-root, run the "desktop-effects" command
Desktop Effects preferences dialog fails to appear. Instead, the following
diagnostic output is seen:
(desktop-effects:5750): libglade-WARNING **: could not find glade file
** (desktop-effects:5750): WARNING **: Could not open
Desktop Effects preferences dialog should have appeared.
The compiz package does not claim to own the "/usr/share/compiz" directory.
This directory is created at package install time, but with permissions that do
not allow access by non-root users. Incidentally, this will also cause the
directory to be left behind, empty, should compiz be uninstalled later.
Directory "/usr/lib/compiz" has exactly the same problem.
