how to let others access my home directory

I grant read privilege to all the users to my .vimrc file . But my colleague still can't read my .vimrc file . I guess in addiction to give the read privilege to the .vimrc file, in some way I should give the person who want to read it the "access right" to my home directory first---which I don't know how to do it.

Perhaps you need the "x" privilege on your home directory.

"if your colleagues are members of your group you could grant access to your home directory by chmod g+x /home/yourname, and then chmod g+r /home/yourname/.vimrc
