I am not sure if this is the correct forum. Please advice me to the correct one if not…
I am using the last updates of Antergos Cinnamon edition
My problem: when opening a GUI program which requires the user password (like gufw or system update) I can only see a short flash of the GUI password prompt and the box seems to shake the same way as it normally does when a wrong password is entered. The shaking ends up with a “Authentication failed” message, or in the case of gufw, the password box disappears and the gufw interface is not opened.
When opening gufw or pamac-updater using sudo from the command line, everything works fine.
It seems like the password box for GUI root applications is somewhat broken.
