Luckybackup aborts with qt5 5.15.3 even with a clean rebuild. Reverting back to qt5 5.15.2 gets it working again. Package will need a little updating.

blackhole, wouldn't you like to maintain this package?

PS3: I tried two options from gksu : with -w, then with -S (first one forces gksu to use the real root mode, the -S forces gksu to use the sudo mode). The -S option is the one which works. About full paths : in the Icon= line, only the name of the icon file needs to be written: Icon=luckybackup The system manages with that.

PS2: in fact I am wrong about gksu. It works from console but not in the desktop file.

PS: you don't need to give the full path to the executable in the desktop file. The system is supposed to know where the applications are located (see "echo $PATH")

Hi, "su-to-root" from the luckybackup-gnome-su.desktop file Exec command line, is an unknown command. ie in console: $ su-to-root -X -c /usr/bin/luckybackup bash: su-to-root : command not found If you fancy using "pkexec" instead, it does not work better: $ pkexec luckybackup QCoreApplication::applicationDirPath: Please instantiate the QApplication object first luckybackup: cannot connect to X server What works here is gksu. (The warnings seem harmless) $ gksu luckybackup QCoreApplication::applicationDirPath: Please instantiate the QApplication object first libpng warning: iCCP: too many profiles libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile I am using Archlinux x86_64 with Openbox +openbox-menu (lxde type menus) all up to date. I am tweaking that desktop file and placing it in my local applications directory for now. Perhaps would you agree on improving this exec command in a next package? Thanks for your work.

Progress bar not working: always at 0%

I think, you should add a simple 'make' call to the build function - otherwise the pkg gets build in the package function, which is not correct.
