NAME         top

       homed.conf, homed.conf.d - Home area/user account manager
       configuration files

SYNOPSIS         top





DESCRIPTION         top

       These configuration files control default parameters for home
       areas/user accounts created and managed by systemd-homed.service(8).


       The default configuration is defined during compilation, so a
       configuration file is only needed when it is necessary to deviate
       from those defaults. By default, the configuration file in
       /etc/systemd/ contains commented out entries showing the defaults as
       a guide to the administrator. This file can be edited to create local

       When packages need to customize the configuration, they can install
       configuration snippets in /usr/lib/systemd/*.conf.d/ or
       /usr/local/lib/systemd/*.conf.d/. The main configuration file is read
       before any of the configuration directories, and has the lowest
       precedence; entries in a file in any configuration directory override
       entries in the single configuration file. Files in the *.conf.d/
       configuration subdirectories are sorted by their filename in
       lexicographic order, regardless of in which of the subdirectories
       they reside. When multiple files specify the same option, for options
       which accept just a single value, the entry in the file with the
       lexicographically latest name takes precedence. For options which
       accept a list of values, entries are collected as they occur in files
       sorted lexicographically.

       Files in /etc/ are reserved for the local administrator, who may use
       this logic to override the configuration files installed by vendor
       packages. It is recommended to prefix all filenames in those
       subdirectories with a two-digit number and a dash, to simplify the
       ordering of the files.

       To disable a configuration file supplied by the vendor, the
       recommended way is to place a symlink to /dev/null in the
       configuration directory in /etc/, with the same filename as the
       vendor configuration file.

OPTIONS         top

       The following options are available in the [Home] section:

           The default storage to use for home areas. Takes one of "luks",
           "fscrypt", "directory", "subvolume", "cifs". For details about
           these options, see homectl(1). If not configured or assigned the
           empty string, the default storage is automatically determined: if
           not running in a container environment and /home/ is not itself
           encrypted, defaults to "luks". Otherwise defaults to "subvolume"
           if /home/ is on a btrfs file system, and "directory" otherwise.
           Note that the storage selected on the homectl command line always
           takes precedence.

           When using "luks" as storage (see above), selects the default
           file system to use inside the user's LUKS volume. Takes one of
           "btrfs", "ext4" or "xfs". If not specified defaults to "btrfs".
           This setting has no effect if a different storage mechanism is
           used. The file system type selected on the homectl command line
           always takes precedence.
