@amish Right, so you just mean it looks different. I thought it has some meaningful difference ;)

@aminvakil You rm something with rm .xz why would you do rm ./.xz?

And even though it is not scary, but ./.xz actually looks like /.xz as if you are deleting from root (/) directory.

@amish What's the difference?

Line 48: rm -fv ./*.xz looks so scary. (Even though it is not)

Isn't it simple to just do *.xz?

What is the lib32-glibc dependency for? It works well for me without it.

@Kr1ss: Oops, I did forget. Thanks.

Kr1ss commented on 2021-09-15 14:57

Yeah, good point, thank you !

I think you've forgotten to commit the ventoy.install though ;)

@malacology @ Atif: I've added polkit as an optional dependency, you'll need to install it to use the GUI.

@Kr1ss: I've added the post_remove() function. The log will not be created until the GUI is run once, so not sure about symlinking it.

Kr1ss commented on 2021-09-15 12:05

The GUI app tries to write logs under /opt/ventoy/, and relies on polkit for privilege escalation, to do so.

Since we only have the binary, we can't patch that in the way we did with the Web UI before.

I'd see two options :

  1. (optionally) depend on polkit, and add a command to post_remove() in the install file, which deletes /opt/ventoy when the package is uninstalled
  2. (optionally) depend on polkit, and symlink the log file to somewhere in /var/log/ or /tmp/

The latter alternative seems more clean, to my mind.

Works fine for me on Plasma.
