I am sorry if this question is vague, but ever since I've installed Arch and i3 on my laptop, there have been persistently annoying bugs related to apps not being able to create, edit, or access folders in my home directory that they need to function. For example, I had to manually specify my i3 config file even though it was in the correct location. IntelliJ Idea wouldn't detect java correctly until I edited an obscure config file such that it used an absolute path instead of "$HOME/myUser/...". I can't run LibreOffice because it can't find my home directory. Picom needs handholding to find its config file, even though it is in the correct location. Again, I need to emphasize: these applications have the right to access my home folder. They just can't find it. Sometimes this can be worked around, but often it can't. Has anyone else experienced this, or have any suggestions?
