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.
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:
That looks good!
Nothing under your home directory is owned by root.
The only things are these two links which point to files that are most probably owned by root.
discord.desktop → /opt/discord/discord.desktop
libreoffice-writer.desktop → /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/xdg/writer.desktop
I have not used Xfce for a long time so I am not aware if there are any better ways for handling this.
What I personaly would do is first remove these links.
Then I would make a libreoffice-writer.desktop …
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.
