Geoclue - directory permissions differ

Should I worry about this?


[2022-02-26T16:03:42-0300] [ALPM] warning: directory permissions differ on /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/ filesystem: 750 package: 755 [2022-02-26T16:03:42-0300] [ALPM] upgraded geoclue (2.5.7-4 -> 2.6.0-1)

Maybe run a sudo chmod -R o-rwx /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/ to fix ?

No. :scream:

First, it is talking about the directory itself, not the files inside it so don’t use -R.

Next it is telling you that your filesystem is more restrictive than the package default. If you want to change that or not is entirely up to you. If you do want to change it, you should probably use o+rx


Just realized that it should be o+rx to match the package… :slight_smile:
I’ll leave as it is then…

Thanks once again Dalto

I got this warning too, so if I want I can just safely ignore it as an option? I don’t really have a preference either way, unless it’s advisable to do a certain appropriate action.

It seems that folder is used for more stuff

pacman -Qo /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d

Only application with that warning is geoclue, and everything is working, so I didn’t do anything…

Or, chmod 755 to match the package directly.
