I am considering to add gksu as a dependency. This application requires admin privileges; so -in order to grant them- pkexec is called so that the user can enter his/her password. The problem is that pkexec keeps returning the following error:
Starting multibootusb GUI...
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display
/usr/sbin/multibootusb-pkexec: line 6: 3189 Aborted (core dumped) pkexec --disable-internal-agent "/usr/bin/multibootusb" "$@"

and if I run "pkexec multibootusb", then I get only:
Starting multibootusb GUI...
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display
Aborted (core dumped)

A workaround would be using gksudo [which is part of gksu] instead of pkexec. I could modify the menu launcher to do so.
I'm open to suggestions.

The actual path to multibootusb executable ' /usr/sbin/multibootusb' and path specified in '/usr/sbin/multibootusb-pkexec' & 'org.debian.pkexec.run-multibootusb.policy' are different.

Both the files will have path to executable as '/usr/bin/multibootusb' However, you need to correct it as '/usr/sbin/multibootusb' in both the files. This should solve the error you are getting.

If you have an error «PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/share/multibootusb/data/version.txt'» then you need execute:

sudo chmod +r /usr/share/multibootusb/data/version.txt

and then again

yaourt -S multibootusb

PKGBUILD Updated and bumped to 8.2.0.
Still having problems when launching multibootusb from the menu and from the terminal [calling the executable /usr/sbin/multibootusb-pkexec].

Workaround:
Run multibootusb from the terminal with either "sudo multibootusb" or "gksudo multibootusb"

Version 8.2.0 is released

Angel_Caido commented on 2016-11-24 05:01

OK. I updated the PKGBUILD for MultiBootUSB. I added some dependencies. I also changed permissions to the file multibootusb.desktop [as requested by satriani].
On my end it built and installed correctly. I just have a few observations to make:
1. Remove any old version before installing this one.
2. For some reason I can't yet understand, the executable ["multibootusb-pkexec"] gives me the following error [when ran from the terminal]:
Starting multibootusb GUI...
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display
/usr/sbin/multibootusb-pkexec: line 6: 3189 Aborted (core dumped) pkexec --disable-internal-agent "/usr/bin/multibootusb" "$@"

I think it has something to do with QT5 and pkexec. [I'm] Not sure.

3. If you want to run it properly use one of the following commands instead:
sudo multibootusb
gksudo multibootusb

Let me know if you can find a solution to this or if something else comes up.

Really odd. Last time I built and checked this package [and after a few minor corrections to the PKGBUILD] it went through flawlessly. Now I encounter more errors. I honestly don't know where they all come from. I'm trying to solve the ones that I have encountered.
According to https://github.com/mbusb/multibootusb, this version now depends on: mtools, util-linux, parted, python3-qt5 [which is provided by python-pyqt5], python-dbus, and pkexec [which is provided by polkit].

AdrianoML commented on 2016-11-23 15:12

This package is full of problems, missing dependencies for python3/python3-pyqt5 and plenty of files with missing read permission.

satriani commented on 2016-11-21 08:26

-rw------- 1 root root 191 20. Nov 09:41 multibootusb.desktop

wrong permission.
Please add to PKGBUILD "chmod 755 /usr/share/applications/multibootusb.desktop"

sundar_ima commented on 2016-11-21 07:20

Your PKGBUILD is not correct. The latest version is based on pyqt5 and p7zip is also missing.

Angel_Caido commented on 2016-11-21 03:07

PKGBUILD updated. Thanks for your patience.

sundar_ima commented on 2016-11-20 12:01

The latest version is released http://multibootusb.org/2016-11-20-Multibootusb-version-8.1.0-is-released/

It would be nice if you report the issues you encountered. This will be helpful in solving the issue faster.

Angel_Caido commented on 2016-11-19 16:15

I shall update the PKGBUILD as soon as I make sure that Multibootusb is working properly. I have read that it has some errors.

The download must have changed, I needed to provide a new sha512sum.

sha5sums=('b5a01dd81d90abd45b8443d922704432e84ceb58ad67c8cfe289064230f721baec420244000533d82e5c66db29767054556d8f8f2606918a8b3e51e24199a867')

This package should also depend on `parted` which it doesn't depend on some reason causing tracebacks.
