How do I protect my home folder contents without encrypting them? That seems like a pain for many reasons. I just learned that any program I install has read/write/execute permissions to everything in my home folder in Ubuntu.
I don't want every program that I
sudo apt-get install to be able to read my \home directories and files. How do I protect them? If I install RandomJoeBlow utility I don't want it to see my personal documents I keep in my \home folder. Do I password protect my \home\photos and \home\medical_info directories? What to do?
