X abstraction doesn't know about /var/run/gdm/auth-for-*

Bug #601583 reported by Dave Gilbert on 2010-07-04

Bug Description

Binary package hint: apparmor

/etc/apparmor.d/abstractions/X contains the line:

  # .Xauthority files required for X connections, per user
  @{HOME}/.Xauthority r,

which is fine in principal, but on my system gdm has set XAUTHORITY to:

$ env |grep XAUTH

so I think all X apps are trying to access that instead of ~/.Xauthority

Lucid not affected. X abstraction updated to add new gdm database path. Does not regress with 2.5.1-0ubuntu0.10.04.1 in lucid-proposed.

This bug was fixed in the package apparmor - 2.5.1-0ubuntu0.10.04.1

apparmor (2.5.1-0ubuntu0.10.04.1) lucid-proposed; urgency=low

  * Backport 2.5.1-0ubuntu0.10.10.1 from maverick for userspace tools to work
    with newer kernels (LP: #660077)
    NOTE: user-tmp now uses 'owner' match, so non-default profiles will have
    to be adjusted when 2 separately confined applications that both use the
    user-tmp abstraction depend on being able to cooperatively share files
    with each other in /tmp or /var/tmp.
  * remove the following patches (features not appropriate for SRU):
    - 0002-add-chromium-browser.patch
    - 0003-local-includes.patch
    - 0004-ubuntu-abstractions-updates.patch
  * debian/rules (this makes it the same as what was shipped in 10.04 LTS
    - don't ship aa-update-browser and its man page (requires
    - don't ship apparmor.d/local/ (requires 0003-local-includes.patch)
    - don't use dh_apparmor (not in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS)
    - don't ship chromium profile
  * remove debian/profiles/chromium-browser
  * remove debian/aa-update-browser*
  * debian/apparmor-profiles.postinst: revert to that in lucid release
    (requires dh_apparmor and 0002-add-chromium-browser.patch)
  * remove debian/apparmor-profiles.postrm: doesn't make sense without
  * debian/control:
    - revert Build-Depends on debhelper (>= 5)
    - revert Standards-Version to 3.8.4
    - revert Vcs-Bzr
    - use Conflicts/Replaces version that was in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
  * debian/patches/0011-lucid-compat-dbus.patch: move /var/lib/dbus/machine-id
    back into dbus, since profiles on 10.04 LTS expect it there
  * debian/patches/0012-lucid-compat-kde.patch: add kde4-config to kde
    abstraction, since the firefox profile on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS expects it to
    be there

apparmor (2.5.1-0ubuntu0.10.10.2) maverick-proposed; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/0006-testsuite-fixes.patch: testsuite fixes from head
