Description Héctor Louzao 2016-11-27 13:36:10 UTC
Description of problem:

beesu doesn't start in wayland

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install the previous packages
2. Open nautilus
3. select the directory to open with privileges options -> right click - select script - open nautilus here

another possible step to reproduce this behaviour is type in terminal :

beesu nautilus

I've get this error :


No protocol specified
Unable to init server: No se pudo conectar: Connection refused

(nautilus:10383): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0


Actual results:

appears a windows to introduce the password and nothing happened

Expected results:

open nautilus as privileges access (root).

Additional info:

beesu script manager works as usual.

if very strange because the version is fc24. Is a fresh fedora install.

This is an intentional design decision of wayland, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1274451.

I'm going to retire beesu for a number of reasons, including upstream abandonment, but this is the final straw.

Hello Tom, 

do you know of a drop-in replacement for beesu that works under wayland?

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2016-12-01 15:16:23 UTC
No. Read through 1274451 for the reasoning (and several workarounds to allow graphical apps to run via sudo).
