gsd-color logs this error on on several occasions eg.: start/login/resume

Additional info:
* package version(s)

gnome-settings-daemon (3.24.2-1)

* config and/or log files etc.

Mai 27 19:30:41 gsd-color[1129]: failed to set screen _ICC_PROFILE: Datei »/home/steinwanderer/.local/share/icc/edid-ccbaf766c5e4ab5265ddd99726a370dc.icc« konnte nicht geöffnet werden: Keine Berechtigung

This translates roughly to "can't open file edid-ccbaf766c5e4ab5265ddd99726a370dc.icc: access denied"

Sorry, for the german Logfile, I have no idea how to tell journald to log or output with "LANG=C".

Steps to reproduce:

install gnome-sesstings-daemon and login, watch logs.
This task depends upon

The error message is clear, you have a color profile set that points to a location in your home directory where you don't have access.

I have not set any color profile manually. It seems the file is somehow automatically generated. It has rw permission to the user and when deleted manually, it comes back immediately.

I have the same log entries (version 3.24.3-1).

Fresh install, all default configs, no maual configuration of Xorg, xrandr, colour profiles etc.

Monitors (dual head) work normally however.

Exact same issue here on 4.14.13-1-ARCH running gnome3 with gdm on xorg.

This issue has been around for some time now. No fix in the pipeline ?

Issue still present at boot on Arch 4.18.12

I don't see a problem with permission here. Unless `write` permission is required for "go".

I have a similar issue, but not with home directory.
Using Archlinux, with Wayland and Gnome

# uname -a
Linux oric 5.2.4-arch1-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Jul 28 10:52:46 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Error is:
juil. 29 20:26:06 oric gsd-color[1536]: failed to set screen _ICC_PROFILE: Failed to open file “/var/lib/gdm/.local/share/icc/edid-da69dc70fd7589ef396f6560e059ea39.icc”: Permission denied

Permissions on /var/lib/gdm are indeed not permitting others

ls -alh /var/lib/
drwxrwx--T 13 gdm gdm 4,0K 29 juil. 20:21 gdm

User is not member of the gdm group

I cannot reproduce the issue anymore. Is it still valid with latest software versions?
Comment by Cedric (Cbhihe) - Sunday, 27 February 2022, 19:44 GMT
This issue is not present for me at boot anymore on kernel 5.16.10-1-ARCH.
