'Open as administrator' a folder doesn't work in nautilus I guess the problem is related with the unknown option --no-desktop

Edit: sorry, I haven't checked . The problem seems to be solved in nautilus-admin 1.1.5

Working on ArchMergeD Gnome I wanted open as root in.

I changed this line depends=('nautilus' 'python-nautilus' 'polkit') to depends=('nautilus' 'python2-nautilus' 'polkit') because of conflict and it seems to work here

Hope it helps someone

The PKGBUILD specifies 'python-nautilus' already. I'm honestly not sure why it was trying to call in 'python2-nautilus'. It seemed though that manually specifying removal of 'python2-nautilus' (and this package along with it) and then doing a fresh install does call in the correct dependency and fix the issue. At any rate, the package is updated as well.

$ sudo pacman -Rnsc python2-nautilus $ sudo pacman -U 'nautilus-admin-1.1.3-1-any.pkg.tar.xz'

Yes, I think a revision or (or something) will be necessary. I'm finishing up a business trip at the moment so might be a couple days.

@electricprism: Removing and reinstalling nautilus-admin (and nautilus-typeahead, which was also installed on my system) solves the problem.

Edit:looked forward too early, the entries don't appear atm.

On update I get this message :: nautilus-admin: installing python2-nautilus (1.2.1-2) breaks dependency 'python-nautilus'

Does the package need to be revised?

I have little free time now.
I have disown the package and am looking for a new maintainer.

That's strange.

The extension uses the "pkexec" command from polkit to start nautilus/gedit/gnome-terminal as root.
By default, pkexec and polkit don't allow GUI applications to run. But this can be overridden per application with a correct ".policy" file, which is installed by this package.
Something else must be wrong.

I'm not an Arch Linux user, and I don't know a lot about polkit, so I can't be of much help.

Is polkit only failing in this extension, or is it also failing in other GUI applications?
Run this in a terminal to have an idea which other applications run pkexec with GUI: "grep org.freedesktop.policykit.exec.allow_gui /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/*"
Search the Internet to see if you can find anything about this error in pkexec.

Good luck!

It's strange, I have 3 computers with fully updated archlinux and gnome (2 PC and 1 tablet). nautilus-admin works in 1 of the PC, but it doesn't work in the other PC and the tablet. However, it worked well in all of them some weeks ago.

Any idea what I should check, Bruno? Thanks.

Is this issue still occurring?

It sounds like something misconfigured or missing in polkit or something.
