I was having to end of problems with Nemo and open as root not working. Well I found out after a long search and many false leads it Wayland or specifically xwayland. Well the cure was installing dbus-x11 and xuserrun-dbus-git from the AUR. I tried a ton of stuff with no luck but now when in Nemo I right click and choose open as root and the password window opens and a new window opens. The stuff I tried was from years past but with Wayland “not the best idea” replacing x11 because of a huge security flaw in x11 this cure will fill in the gap for now. Just helping out anyone that is experiencing this problem. I’ve had many problems in my 2 years on Linux and it’s my time to help out. Maybe if the Antergos Cinnamon install included this it would make the user experience better since it took me weeks to find what the problem was and it’s not just in Antergos either because other Distros with Cinnamon DE have it also. I installed a few with all the same problem except for Manjaro but I like Antergos a lot better.
