Hi folks,

Needing to set a different default umask for my users, I installed libpam-umask
and added the following line to /etc/pam.d/common-session:

session required pam_umask.so umask=0007

This works fine using login, but doesn't work with gdm.

To fix the problem, I had to create the file .gnomerc on each user profile. On
that file, I added the following line:
umask 0007

However, I think gdm should take better care of PAM settings...
