What I meant was you can't expect TDE to work right without it.

So, you have a FACL[1] applying to leslie, but not the others. Something in FACL
setting(s) has apparently blocked creation of ~/.trinity, and you're lucky TDE
works as well as it does by reading ~/.kde, which it only should do until it has
been migrated to ~/.trinity.

man acl

Other than what I just typed or pasted, I don't have familiarity with FACLs.

If you don't want to mess with trying to get a handle on FACL ATM, try creating
it as root and changing owner and group to leslie.users, and if apparently
successful, logging into a TDE session.

When working with ordinary permissions issues, I find it immensely easy to have
them fully on display via mc in long file list mode, which causes the screen to
be constantly refreshed with what resembles output from ls -al. I really can't
accomplish much if mc isn't installed. Generally I have 2-3 mc sessions open
when running any GUI, and one or more if working only on the vttys.
