I have little free time now.
I have disown the package and am looking for a new maintainer.

That's strange.

The extension uses the "pkexec" command from polkit to start nautilus/gedit/gnome-terminal as root.
By default, pkexec and polkit don't allow GUI applications to run. But this can be overridden per application with a correct ".policy" file, which is installed by this package.
Something else must be wrong.

I'm not an Arch Linux user, and I don't know a lot about polkit, so I can't be of much help.

Is polkit only failing in this extension, or is it also failing in other GUI applications?
Run this in a terminal to have an idea which other applications run pkexec with GUI: "grep org.freedesktop.policykit.exec.allow_gui /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/*"
Search the Internet to see if you can find anything about this error in pkexec.

Good luck!

It's strange, I have 3 computers with fully updated archlinux and gnome (2 PC and 1 tablet). nautilus-admin works in 1 of the PC, but it doesn't work in the other PC and the tablet. However, it worked well in all of them some weeks ago.

Any idea what I should check, Bruno? Thanks.

Is this issue still occurring?

It sounds like something misconfigured or missing in polkit or something.

It used to work like a charm, but something has broken recently and it doesn't work at this moment (nautilus 3.22.1-1, nautilus-admin 0.2.3-1). I get this error message when I try to Edit a file as Administrator:

No protocol specified
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

(gedit:1325): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0

And a similar message when I try to Open a folder as Administrator:

No protocol specified
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

(nautilus:1331): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0

No worries. Thanks for your work.

I've just updated it and the Spanish translation works like a charm. Thanks, Bruno.

Oops, forgot to change the md5sum. It should be fixed now.
Thanks!

MD5SUM in PKGBUILD is incorrect. Should be: "0cf5f8d941856424a5762b6611b56c14"
