    I remember Gnome 2, and Kde3 was great at his time, but how can an application of Gnome 3 change the permissions of my $HOME directory (no more writable!) without any permission (obviously, it never have to do it!)? Sorry, I'm going to drop from my installed system any Gnome 3/Gtk3 application. Sorry.
    I'll give a chance to Lxqt, then to Windows 10.
    A misbehaving application is not something Gnome or KDE (or any DE) can control since they are just desktop environments and permissions isn't their job. If you can't trust an app then you should install it in a sandbox environment like Flatpak or Snap.

      No more Gtk3 apps, nor DE.

        On Fedora 29 Gnome shell I thought was a mess.

          Unfortunately, it is not. It is an "shield" (as they call it) that hides your screen when you are away. And you need to "swipe" it with mouse to remove it (i found later that ESC also works).

Just toggle it off.
            I already did that (turned off lock screen on several places, including everything I found in dconf-editor), but it is still there, like a zombie that just wouldn't die...
