There seems to be no .gnomerc file anywhere.

Display Manager is gdm3. Window manager (or is it session manager?) is

/etc/X11/Xsession would affect all users. Unless there is some stuff
there that executes a script from users home directory.

I am still looking for a documented or supported way to make GUI
applications use the umask I want.

I have tested Libreoffice. When started from terminal window it honors
the umask that is shown with umask -S in there. But started from the GUI
menu it uses some other umask.
