Thread: KDE 5.17: /usr/bin/xdg-su -c /sbin/yast2 > Permission denied

    Default Re: KDE 5.17: /usr/bin/xdg-su -c /sbin/yast2 > Permission denied

    Hello,
    I have exactly the same problem on one computer.
    I don't have it (the problem) on another computer with the same OS (which is a laptop), there everything works as expected.

    On the command line "su" and "sudo" work perfectly....
    But when I enter (command line)
    Code:
    kdesu dolphin
    the same error (wrong password) appears..

    Already any idea?

    Thanks,
    Johannes

    Try to find out where those two systems differ.

    Or, because it seems to be a desktop issue, try to find out where those two users differ (e.g. by creating a new user and see if it has the problem).

    If the problem is on only one machine when the two machines should otherwise be pretty close to identical, instead of trying to identify the problem I'd instead ensure that the problem machine is fully updated and consistent, and if that didn't work then do a re-install (dup).

    Updating and resetting system's internal consistency
    Code:
    zypper up
    "Quick" re-install
    Code:
    zypper dup
    Deeper re-install
    Use the DVD to repair, followed by updating.

    On some systems, you need to be in a special group (often: wheel) to use this program.

    Adding the user to group wheel does not help.

    I ran the following an succeeded:

    Code:
    2019-10-19 11:53  32579  1.14.30  zypper ar -f -p 100 https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Frameworks5/openSUSE_Factory test
    2019-10-19 11:54  32739  1.14.30  zypper install plasma5-workspace-5.17.0-483.1.x86_64

    It also worked here. However while installing there were some error messages that some scripts failed. The reason was the same as the reason for kdesu not working.

    Therefore two questions:
    1. Has anybody an idea, if this has an impact?
    2. Can I remove the "test" repository again?

    Thanks,
    Johannes

    I always run 'zypper dup' before changing the list of repos. When adding test and installing the following no errors were reported:

    Code:
    erlangen:~ # zypper se --installed-only --repo test
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    
    S  | Name                   | Summary                             | Type   
    ---+------------------------+-------------------------------------+--------
    il | plasma5-workspace      | The KDE Plasma Workspace Components | package
    il | plasma5-workspace-libs | The KDE Plasma Workspace Components | package
    erlangen:~ #
    test has priority 100, which is lower than default value 99, 'zypper dup' reports: Nothing to do. Thus it probably will not cause trouble when installing new snapshots.

    I enabled notification by adding my mail address to https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1154345 and will disable repo test when notified.
