I’ve noticed a few times that there’s some kind of write protection on home directory. For example:
- when downloading a file, the directory selector dialog pops up, and if you select /home/defaultuser, nothing gets downloaded, but if you select any directory within /home/defaultuser, it’s fine
- when using certain 3rd-party apps/programs, it will give r/w access error for a file in ~, but work fine if it’s in ~/Downloads, etc.
What’s that all about?
