Why have two commands to do the same thing? Which one is smaller?
exactly. This:

Code: Select all

pkexec thunar
is smaller than

Code: Select all

gksu -l dbus-launch --exit-with-session thunar %F
Functionally, what's the difference?

why not pkexec?

ToZ says it's ok, if org.xfce.thunar.policy contains

Code: Select all

<annotate key="org.freedesktop.policykit.exec.allow_gui">true</annotate>
https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?pid=49488#p49488

Porteus does. So, pkexec should be ok, no?

Slim Isn't Minimal

this page says SLiM requires minimal dependencies, and none from the GNOME or KDE desktop environments. It therefore contributes towards a lightweight system Is that the same as the slim.auth on my Porteus? It's the biggest program running on my Porteus. Doesn't seem minimal :( /usr/libexec/Xorg -a...

Why Not pkexec?

i just changed the built-in Thunar (root) launcher to your command
gksu -l dbus-launch --exit-with-session thunar %F

and now it fails.
it works with default command.
