Under Manjaro, I was able to open a terminal, and issue:
"sudo mousepad " and then edit it.
Now I am getting this error when attempting to do the same:
"[dcbdbis@Curly-Sr ~]$ sudo mousepad
Failed to initialize xfconf[dcbdbis@Curly-Sr ~]$ "
I can easily get around this by: "sudo dbus-launch mousepad " But it is extra typing - and
MeaCulpa, I’m lazy.
I am sure there is a setting somewhere…but I am NOT getting much at all with google or DuckDuckGo searches…Other than “Don’t do it”. I am in a sole office, in my home. I am not that worried about physical intruders…I would prefer the convenience - if possible.
How to I get Endeavour to allow sudo’s for GUI’s (works fine for CLI apps)…OR do I have to create my own command by aliasing the “sudo dbus-launch” string?
Sincerely and Respectfully,
Edits: I alias’d it. But the question still stands what’s different in my shell config before and after…So I have some ignorance that needs to be banished…
