• pkexec : GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent.


    By launching pkexec I got the message in xsession-errors :

    Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.

    If I launch the sofwares with sudo no messages.

    I have polkit-gnome installed and launched with the xfce session.

    This is the result in journalctl -f of launching pkexec thunar :

    mai 16 15:29:39 Laptop polkitd[692]: Operator of unix-session:c1 successfully authenticated as unix-user:myself to gain ONE-SHOT authorization for action org.xfce.thunar for unix-process:22411:2974190 [bash] (owned by unix-user:myself)
    mai 16 15:29:39 Laptop pkexec[24304]: pam_unix(polkit-1:session): session opened for user root by (uid=1000)

    Any idee ?

    Thank you.

  • @sushi Does everything work ok despite the error?

  • Yes it does but even if it’s a minor “bug” I’m looking why is this message spamed.

    I hade it on buntu to, installing consolekit & pam-connector did the trick but I don’t want to do it on arch. I don’t know if it’s related to xfce or policykit.
