My Manjaro cheatsheet in a menu form

I was just trying to politely hint you it might be something on your end.
I just tested with the latest live KDE 6 ISO and after installing the 2 dependencies it works.
It actually helped me discover a small error in the dependencies help hints which i now corrected.

I feel so stupid. Don’t know where I missed it or it was just common sense.
It work fine when I type sudo to begin the script.

Well…since just showing the menu does not require sudo (only some part does and it asks for it), that means there is something on your system with the wrong permissions. Maybe at some point in the past you run some external script with sudo where you shouldn’t have to, or did sudo npm, or sudo pip, or something similar.

I somehow missed this when I read this thread before. It’s what I do with the aliases I add to my ~/.bashrc, e.g. the one I use for the WAN speed test.
