Thread: Cannot open Nautilus su

  1. #1

    Default Cannot open Nautilus su

    When i'm trying to open Nautilus as su (or by gksu nautilus or sudo nautilus) i'm getting an enormous sermon in the terminal window, nautilus then starts never the less but crashes immediately when i'm trying to change settings . . .

    Some of the errors are:

    (nautilus:13324): Nautilus-GDU-WARNING **: unable to query info
    (nautilus:13387): Eel-WARNING **: GConf-Fehler
    And then i'm reading (translating here from german) that a cause for the GConf error might be there's something missing between TCP/IP and Orbit. Out of any idea for that as for the rest as well . . .

    TIA

    PS. In Debian that works without even reflecting on it . . .

    Hi
    Either use gnomesu or xdg-su to start Nautilus (gksu is not an openSUSE thing )

    Thanks. But both do not work.

    With <gnomesu nautilus> nothing happens (the prompt in the terminal disappears but Nautilus does not start; have to do CTRL+Z to re-get the prompt). <xdg-su nautilus> returns:
    xdg-su: unexpected argument 'nautilus'
    And nothing changes when i'm pointing explicitely to the directory; //usr/bin/nautilus (or when i'm starting the cmd from there).

    How? Before, while after?

    Anyway, Alt-F2 brings me to the Applications tab (in Smeegol). I tried it after (having typed in in the terminal gnomesu nautilus) but nautilus is started in usermode.

    Hi
    Ahhhh This little gem would have helped
    Anyway, Alt-F2 brings me to the Applications tab (in Smeegol).
    Open a terminal and run;
    Code:
    su -c nautilus
    Looks like it's a bug of some description.

    since Alt+F2 _should_ cause a "run dialog" to pop up, why don't you
    let us stop guessing and tell us at least the bare facts:

    operating system
    version
    update status
    desktop environment
    graphic chip/driver
    desktop effects on or off
    local or remote
    vm or bare metal
    hardware (smart phone to what? rack mount server)
    that kinda stuff..

    by the way, does any of the documentation for Smeegol give any hints
    of where to go for help? (i ask, because i've never seen a Smeegol
    Guru around here!

    https://bugzilla.novell.com/index.cgi and post back the bug # so I can
    add my 2 cents worth.
