Reddit: Would it be worth redesigning the user home directory to have a DMZ public directory and a private directory?
I was playing with my avatar image in sddm trying to get it to show in the sddm login page, and I was successful. However doing this then completely borked my ability to ssh into my account.
Basically for the avatar image file to be visible in the sddm login screen, sddm needs access permissions to my home directory and to the .face image file which holds the avatar pic.
My ssh server has StrictModes activated, which means that sshd will only trust the user certificates, if the user's .ssh directory AND the home directory permissions are correctly set. (e.g chmod 700 for .ssh/). This is to stop 3rd party tampering is the certs.
Allowing user sddm read access to the home directory violates the StrictMode policy and therefore blocks ssh logins using certificates (password authentication is still allowed though :-( ).
Also, I don't like giving "random" users access to my home dir.
atm the users home dir contains the private files (.conf .local directories othe dot files etc) it may have a "public" directory to share files by samba, and files like .face which should be read by other "users" such as sddm.
I was thinking along the lines of the user's home directory having only 2 subdirs , public and private, and NO OTHER files. The .conf, .local, .ssh, and such like could be placed in /home/user/private and the .face type files, samba public directories, public profile information could be placed in /home/user/public.
This would allow things like sddm access without violating the privacy requirements of ssh
This idea is just off the top of my head and is very likely hopelessly naive, but I would be interested to hear other peoples thoughts.submitted by /u/CarpeCol
Does anyone know if there's a single app that combines the aspects of those 3 apps, or at least, gets closer than using them all individually.
Pomodoro would be the core for helping with productivity, but when combined with RescueTime and Hamster Tracker you could easily look back over your day and get reminders about what apps you were using (RescueTime) during each Pomodoro in-order to categorize them for timesheet / project tracking purposes (Hamster).
Obviously, asking here because it would have to run on Linux.
Paid or free. Thanks in advance.
(sorry if this wasn't the right place to ask)
