try to check how are named your VM's or Ftp sites, maybe you have there some non standard characters (in names).

Can you open the extension? If yes, play with open/close VBox, Ftp etc.

At least, which distro you are using ?

yes, the string array can be an array created from your ftp bookmarks or VBox machines, so check how are named your bookmarks, and tell me which distro you are using

 Arch/AUR package

 
 by Shanto on: Oct 26 2011
 
Score 50%

Just packaged it for Arch/AUR. Keep up the good work and keep us posted at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=53443 (on new updates and major changes). Also, don't hesitate to ask if you like to maintain the AUR package yourself.

By the way, do you think it's possible to launch naitulus (as root) without that extra one-liner bash binary? I agree, it is good enough for personal use. But, as soon as you start packaging it, questions like this can arise.

Thanks for packaging. About the root mode. I have tested to do it with simple gksudo, but for the gksudo, there is no support for gnome3 modal dialog (the black modal). For this reason I have used the pkexec. By the way, I will try to implement the direct way for invoking the nautilus (not via the bash script). I will try with next release to fix it.

 Suggestion / question

 
 by hotice on: Oct 26 2011
 
Score 50%

I have a suggestion: if Nautilus is not set to draw the desktop, running Nautilus as root changes the desktop background to the root wallpaper.

To fix this, you could use this in the "nautilus-root" file:
pkexec /usr/bin/nautilus --no-desktop /

And I also have a question: I would like to upload this to the WebUpd8 GNOME3 PPA but there's no license... I assume it uses the same license as the original Places Menu extension, right?

Thanks!

thanks for the suggestion, it has been implemented into v 1.5, also the nautilus-root file is no more used (check the archive). yes you can publish it as well. Also you can package it for deb systems if you want. At this point, please fix all metadata.js files in your PPA to have the version 3.2 not only 3.2.0, because in today gnome-shell update this was necessary

By the way, in the readme, you say that "org.freedesktop.policykit.pkexec.policy" might exist already on the system. In that case, I can't merge your file with the original file through the .deb. So can I rename this file (does renaming it affects running Nautilus as root)?

You need use the exact name for policy file, if you will create deb, you need check if the file exist and if yes, using sed or awk copy the action part from file in archive and merge it. Maybe for now leave it as archive only, because some people can use the pkexec for e.g. gparted and with copying the file only, the current action will be removed. See more here https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=999328#p999328

Without this file, Nautilus doesn't open from the Extended Places Menu. But I've tried renaming it to org.freedesktop.policykit.pkexec.nautilus-run.policy and it works just fine, at least in Ubuntu.

Good, this is an way. If is tested make the package with this style. Try to test it on other distro and if is working, I will update the archive also
