Setting the umask for all users works fine.
|% grep UMASK /etc/login.defs
# UMASK is also used by useradd and newusers to set the mode of new home
But I would like to change the umask for one single user. Now the manual of login.defs says this:
|It is also used by login to define users' initial umask. Note that this mask can be overriden by the user's GECOS line (if QUOTAS_ENAB is set) or by the specification of a limit with the K identifier in limits(5). |
I can't activate QUOTAS_ENAB though. When I do i get this error: configuration error - unknown item 'QUOTAS_ENAB' (notify administrator) (shadow 22.214.171.124). So it won't work. Sadly using limits is also no option, since Gentoos limits.conf is another kind of limits file. I also can't use .bashrc or something like that, because often I start programs via sudo, so there is no bash involved.
Has anyone an idea how to solve this problem under Gentoo? Thanks.
