Re: nautiulus ignores umask

In usual setup,

I use Debian (sarge). In my setup gdm starts Xsession script. This script sources /etc/profile and ~/.bash_profile (not by default, but I made it do so) and only than starts gnome-session and nautilus. So these processes should use the umask, that is set in ~/.bash_profile or /etc/profile. Othet processes but nautilus do use it.

Try the following:
1. start terminal
2. gnome-session-remove nautilus
3. umask 0002
4. nautilus to start it from terminal
5. check that umask is respected.

didn't help...
