Unless you can help me find out why that worked with the previous version of the package, and not with this one, I am inclined to believe this is because of changes to dbus itself rather than the packaging. I do not use dolphin, but I do use this package for things like launching dconf-editor as root with sudo, which works--though it should be noted that using sudo with dbus applications is generally recommended against.

If you are using KDE, the most often recommended method I see at first glance (google search of "sudo dolphin dbus" returns mostly results from ~2016, maybe when the [core] package dropped --enable-x11-autolaunch) is

kdesu dbus-launch dolphin

Several posts recommend installing the dbus-x11 package without saying why it worked.

Edit: have a look at the Archwiki page about running GUI applications as root. Much to my surprise the GVFS method worked with my filebrowser (pantheon-files). You might try

dolphin admin:///

you just made my day thanks for this!!!

quequotion commented on 2020-04-08 16:11 (UTC)

I no longer need this package myself, so quitting while I'm ahead.

It will periodically need a $pkgver bump or so to keep up with dbus in [core].

quequotion commented on 2020-03-03 02:38 (UTC)

Hold your horses people. I'll update the package soon.

Andy_Vetrov commented on 2020-02-23 09:02 (UTC)

@quequotion: Please add 'libdbus-1.so' in 'provides' section. This required for avahi starting from 0.8+6+g751be80-1.

mozo commented on 2019-02-18 16:48 (UTC) (edited on 2019-02-18 16:49 (UTC) by mozo)

Yes it works with "dolphin admin:///" and with "kdesu dbus-launch dolphin" but used to "sudo dolphin" which doesn't work anymore. It's not a big deal though :)

Unfortunately I don't have the knowledge to help you in this task.

mozo commented on 2019-02-15 15:59 (UTC)

Hmm, it installs but with the new version I can't open dolphin with: sudo dolphin

This is the single reason I installed dbus-x11.

kinoe commented on 2019-02-13 17:12 (UTC)

temporarily downgrade autoconf-archive did it here too. Thanks!

mozo commented on 2019-02-13 10:51 (UTC)

Yes temporarily downgrade autoconf-archive to 2018.03.13-2 did the trick. Thank you :)

However I don't know how this problem can be resolved.

@mozo @kinoe

It seems dbus cannot be compiled against the current autoconf-archive (1:2019.01.06-1).

I couldn't reproduce your issue on my system, so tried the build in a clean chroot, which reproduced the error.

The only differences between dbus-x11 and the [core] dbus package are the --enable-x11-autolaunch in place of --without-x and the libx11 dependency, so I tried building the [core] package in a clean chroot, which failed with the same error.

My system's autoconf-archive was out-of-date:

$ pacman -Qs autoconf-archive
local/autoconf-archive 1:2018.03.13-2
    A collection of freely re-usable Autoconf macros

I confirmed that building dbus from [core] against the outdated autoconf-archive works:

$ makechrootpkg -c -r $CHROOT -I /var/cache/pacman/pkg/autoconf-archive-1\:2018.03.13-2-any.pkg.tar.xz

The dbus package in [core] must also have been compiled against an older autoconf-archive.

There is already a flyspray report, and probably fixed in the next release of dbus.

mozo commented on 2019-02-11 22:21 (UTC)

Same here with trizen:

configure:18959: error: Unexpanded AX_ macro found. Please install GNU autoconf-archive

If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.

See the Autoconf documentation.

autoconf failed - version 2.5x is probably required

Updated to match dbus in core at 1.12.12!

I've also matched the configuration from the [core] package (except for x11-autolaunch), dropping the systemd options among other things. This reduced the package size by half!

Also, added libx11 to makedepends().

lightdot commented on 2017-05-29 13:03 (UTC)

That's the development branch, the stable one is at 1.10.18.

ozgursarier commented on 2017-05-29 11:47 (UTC)

nev ver is 1.11.12 I'll update it at night.

lightdot commented on 2017-05-29 10:50 (UTC)

Is this package still maintained?

Alad commented on 2016-09-18 12:52 (UTC)

This package enables autolaunch, yet forgot to add libx11 to makedepends ...
