I know there are a lot of guides for Thunar customs actions there, i did not find any answer, kind of.
I use Mousepad as text editor. If i want to make a custom action : “Edit file as root” in Thunar, it does not work by default, a simple
mousepad admin:%f do nothing, because it does not support the admin protocol i guess.
In journalctl, i get :
mousepad: Invalid URI: admin:///file_name_i_want_to_edit
Now, to make it works using
pkexec by putting
pkexec mousepad%f in the command field of the custom action, i have to replace the package
dbus (installed by default) with
dbus-x11. I cannot install both of them due to conflict.
dbus, i get the following message in
pkexec: Failed to initialize xfconf: Error spawning command line “dbus-launch --autolaunch=025ba084f4b944cbad1d7c16bfc7e8b2 --binary-syntax --close-stderr”: Child process exited with code 1
dbus-x11 custom actions with pkexec are working.
My question is the following : What are the consequences of replacing dbus by dbus-x11 ? Is there any reason to put dbus by default instead of dbus-x11 when installing a fresh Manjaro ?
