@manuel said in Use gksudo or pkexec to run multiple instances of the same package:
Just wondering what your question really is about.
Why not use file managers that support the feature you need?
And what about ‘man gksudo’ or ‘man pkexec’?
Or is the problem with the argument to sudo/su/gksudo/pkexec?
Hi Manuel! Because
pcmanfm didn’t work very well in my iso, and many people don’t like
thunar has good functionalities despite its small size, so i was hopping to workaround it’s missing addon (the split panel).
I’m guessing is not possible to run two instances with gksudo/pkexec or at least i couldn’t figure out the correct sintax.
gksudo $(&(thunar;thunar)) NOR
gksudo thunar thunar (i tried others too) won’t work, the only way i found is to use sudo or to put a useless program between the thunar instances…
Hi, yes, but instead of a script i created an alias to do it, but i wanted to use some “graphical sudo” but so far only the old and good su/sudo work…
OBS: i saw an AUR package to add split panel to thunar, but then it breaks the “open terminal here” funcionality…
OBS2: i just tested
nemo and i’m pretty amazed how it goes a little further than
caja wich is my prefered FM. The script option is the best!
