Untrusted application launcher

Sorry for dumb question.

I’m trying to execute say Writer from Libre Office by clicking desktop shortcut.
Every time system warns me that it is unsafe.

I suspect that i must do something in here:

But system won’t let me do it by greying out needed options.

ps Same thing happened to Discord when i try to launch it.

Any leads?

How exactly did you install Libreoffice?

Via pamac, which was installed like:
yay -S pamac-aur

Sometimes pamac does not work as expected…

Just to make sure, try re-installing it with one of the commands

sudo pacman -Syu libreoffice-fresh   # the latest version
sudo pacman -Syu libreoffice-still   # the "LTS" version

Removed old version. It was Still.
Reinstalled Fresh with provided command.
If i start application from Start button [EndeavourOS] application runs normally, but if i create link to desktop and try to launch it from desktop it shows up untrust message.
I’m using XFCE environment.

If I remember correctly, it has something to do with the permissions of that .desktop file. Not sure but it might need execute rights?
Can you show ls -l for that file?

I just removed and created shortcut manually and problem was gone.
This thing helped me:

Thank you for support!


I tested it here by copying the desktop file from /usr/share/applications/libreoffice-writer.desktop to the desktop. Then I had to

chmod +x ~/Desktop/libreoffice-writer.desktop

to make it launch.

Note that you can make a symlink too instead of copying it.
