Snapper can now sync the users and groups from the ALLOW_USERS and ALLOW_GROUPS settings to the ACL of the .snapshots directory, thus ensuring the required permissions as described in snapper.
Suppose you have already the config “home_tux” for the home directory of the user “tux”. All you need is to enable syncing of the ACL and allow the user “tux” to work with the config:
snapper -c home_tux set-config SYNC_ACL=yes ALLOW_USERS=tux
Snapper has now added “tux” to the ACL:
getfacl -p /home/tux/.snapshots # file: /home/tux/.snapshots # owner: root # group: root user::rwx user:tux:r-x group::r-x mask::r-x other::---
This feature is available in snapper since version 0.2.0.
