And further investigations on unstable installs i have, it seems GUFW GUI doesn’t launch in KDE Plasma, but ends up in a segmentation fault.
Found this old treat on arch forums https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/52599
I have no issues in Gnome and XFCE install, but the issue is present in KDE Plasma.
As reported bellow, the issue is present in that case also under Gnome.
A possible fix as mentioned later in the discussion ?!?!
In KDE Plasma by running from terminal: sudo gufw-pkexec
i can get the GUI with no error.
I installed gufw to see what is happening on Illyria and it is the same as what @bogdancovaciu wrote above.
Starting gufw in terminal ends with a segmentation fault, running sudo gufw-pkexec starts the program normally.
KDE Plasma - not working
3a. with $ kdesu gufw-pkexec i get Icon theme "ubuntu-mono-dark" not found. and it takes a long time to open
3b. with $ sudo gufw-pkexec and entering the password in terminal it opens instantly
3c. any other method i get
what’s the output of echo $PATH
and which gufw-pkexec
as I said int the stable release announcement it seems in my KDE install
which gufw-pkexec return /bin/gufw-pkexec.
then the polkit rule/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/com.ubuntu.pkexec.gufw.policy is not applied as it specify /usr/bin/gufw-pkexec.
a work around is to run pkexec /usr/bin/gufw-pkexec
with pkexec /usr/bin/gufw-pkexec it takes even longer to initiate than with kdesu gufw-pkexec as i mentioned initially …
I was wondering the same thing …
But mind you, this install is heavily exploited by me, and doesn’t quite play the way a stable install should be. Maybe @DeMus that has a fresh install if Illyria has a different output …
its again normal to have /etc/sddm.conf ? for me no ! view man sddm.conf
ps: i dont have with arch
NOW, i use /sddm.conf.d/ for personnal changes
ls /etc/sddm.conf.d/*;cat /etc/sddm.conf.d/*
# Current theme name
# Cursor theme used in the greeter
# Remember the session of the last successfully logged in user
# Remember the last successfully logged in user
# When logging in as the same user twice, restore the original session, rather than create a new one
to be honnest I don’t really understand the “new” policy about config files in /usr , /etc, etc.
for me if you modify the config that seems normal to be in /etc.
maybe the default config for the distro should be in /usr but not the same file as the package so…
does the module of plasma will use it if it exist? as for now it still use /etc/sddm.conf
then it’s problematic I think to have “both” that manjaro use “/sddm.conf.d” to set the “default theme etc” and aferwards the kcm module sddm.conf.
