~/.gvfs Permission denied
Last modified: 2009-06-23 05:07:13 EDT
Description of problem:
# cd /home/user
# ls -la | grep .gvfs
ls: cannot access .gvfs: Permission denied
d????????? ? ? ? ? ? .gvfs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Only seen on this system.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Unknown - appeared after first boot after install.
I'm not sure whether this is causing any problems as such, but I'm nto sure what its function is.
I can't delete it, move it or rename it because it doesn't appear to have any valid permissions/ownership.
I believe this file/directory should have sane permissions and ownership.
Filesystem is ext3 on a LUKS encrypted LVM partition (all of / apart from /boot is encrypted).
I think this is same bug as Bug 503956.
It happens when you disable the netfs service.
This is a designed behaviour of the fuse filesystem, restricted to the originator user, denying access to everyone else, including root. Please see similar bug 435620 and bug 447314.
Bug 503956 is a different issue and is being solved in bug 493565.
