• Having problem with suse image writer (solved)


    i downloaded suseimagewriter for putting iso’s on jumpdrives.
    when i try to run it i get this
    failed to execute child process “xdg-su” (no such file or directory)
    looking this up i founded that you need to go to pcmanfm/edit/preferences/advanced
    found change the user command to gksu %s
    where is the user command tab at?
    all i see is programs, templates and other options.

    thanks for any help.

  • HI,

    I dont have pcmanfn installed at the moment so I can’t check to see the correct steps. I recommend simply installing xdg-su from the AUR:

    yaourt -S xdg-su
    

    Hope that helps!

  • if you install it using pacmanXG it works(I just installed it myself).

  • thanks for the replying both of you. i now see the app,but it doesn’t load. i installed yaourt -S xdg-su and re installed imagewriter. when i try to open it nothing happens. it’s not a big deal i just like the app from my suse days.

    xdg-su is simply to give imagewriter authentication for root privileges. So would be used like this:

    xdg-su imagewriter
    

    However, others can be used to authenticate, like:

    gksu imagewriter
    

    …if you have gksu installed.

    Or, you can use ssx from the PacmanXG install, like this:

    ssx imagewriter
    

    All the best in getting this working.
