Reset user home directory permissions

September15

Simple. Fire these commands to reset your user and also secure their gpg keys / files as well.  The user name will be substituted automatically.

sudo chown -R $USERNAME:$USERNAME /home/$USERNAME
sudo find ~ -type f -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0640
sudo find ~ -type d -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0750
sudo chmod 600 ~/.ssh/id_rsa
sudo chmod 740 ~/Desktop/*.desktop
sudo chmod 600 ~/.gnupg/*
sudo chmod 700 ~/.gnupg

I used to run Click Technology from 1995 to 2010.  Now no longer, I maintain the site with things I find interesting or are noteworthy or have some handy-tip value.
