xfce-4 terminal gets close when I quit thunar file manager

Post#1 by supertabs » 24 Jul 2021, 08:55

This is weird but everytime I close thunar file manager, xfce4 terminal also gets closed...

How to reproduce:

• Login in as guest user.
• Open thunar as root user (using the launcher)
• Open xfce4 terminal as root user (using the launche)
• Close thunar. --> xfce4 terminal also gets closed.

I do not know why, but how is this two related? Can anyone here help me?

I don't see this happen in rc3, but it does ,as described by OP, in older Porteus versions .

??gksu problem??

maybe try setting:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ gksu-properties
to sudo

hi,no problem to open thunar as root and terminal too, if you close thunar terminal stay on screen open with the launcher and standalone too,ok i don't use changes open the system in text mode.
