Error when running pamac-manager (especially remotely)

(pamac-manager:4764): Gdk-CRITICAL **: 10:44:12.507: gdk_window_set_cursor: assertion 'GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed

When running locally, this does not seem to be an issue. However, when running it remotely via ssh, the window can not be moved or resized. I do not know if the above error is a symptom or a cause.

Pamac manager is a GUI application. How do you want it to be displayed in an SSH session?

In CLI/SSH you should just use pamac, which is it’s CLI interface.

The Gdk-CRITICAL **: can be ignored. I have no issue resizing the pamac-manager via ssh from my Desktop. The pi4 has xfce DE. How are you running ssh. I am using this:

ssh -Y ray@ I have had issues with ssh -X so never use it.

Then run pamac-manager after logging in.

Yes, with ssh -Y {host} but now I can not recreate the issue. This was occuring last week while I was in the office and this weekend weekend with my home setup. grr…

I will squeak again, if I can recreate it.

I can no longer recreate the issue, consider it as either pebkac, transitory or simply my imagination.
