Description Toralf Förster 2014-01-05 12:30:07 UTC
I think thta KDE's file should have 600 too like the origin - even if /tmp/kde-<user> is set to 700, or ? :

$ ls -l /tmp/kde-tfoerste/xauth-1000-_0 ~/.Xauthority
-rw------- 1 tfoerste users 207 Jan  4 22:13 /home/tfoerste/.Xauthority
-rw-r--r-- 1 tfoerste users 207 Jan  4 22:13 /tmp/kde-tfoerste/xauth-1000-_0

$ md5sum /tmp/kde-tfoerste/xauth-1000-_0 ~/.Xauthority
b5bb19323d430c6ddae705ae6c43fcbf  /tmp/kde-tfoerste/xauth-1000-_0
b5bb19323d430c6ddae705ae6c43fcbf  /home/tfoerste/.Xauthority


Reproducible: Always

i have no clue what is creating /tmp/kde-tfoerste/xauth-1000-_0, but it certainly isn't kdm itself.

KDM is unmaintained and not used in KDE Plasma 5.

SDDM is the login manager used in KDE Plasma 5. If you still have this same issue with SDDM, please file an issue on the SDDM bugtracker (after doing a search for existing issues first!): https://github.com/sddm/sddm/issues/
