 ╭─fenris@fenris in ~ as 🧙 took 11s

So I installed KGpg on my system last week, and I did it by doing sudo pacman -S kgpg with no issue. It worked once to get my keys installed. Now for some reason when run it, it just wont load up. Don’t know why, can’t figure it out, but this is what I get…

Is it because this program maybe designed to run in KDE rather then XFCE?

Restart, fix vmware, post in unsupported software.

The vmware issue isn’t something that can be fixed, that was talked about in another post

So I have just chosen to ignore this particular issue with vmware since its functional to the point where I need it

It might be related to the recent Arch dbus change.
Anyway, have you tried the suggestion?

What suggestion?

  • Restart? Yes, about 12 times since I installed it
  • Fix vmware? Yes, you can see the post where I did the work
  • Post in unsupported software? Well, I guess I could try that, but I haven’t fixed the issue :man_shrugging:

The text in the error message.

Not a whole lot seems to happen

Then I think you should launch the application again.
But just in case execute all this entering into bash, as per that message.

You know what’s weird? It works when I type kgpg in the command window but the shortcut under the menu/accessories won’t launch it for some reason

This is probably a side effect of the dbus change, if this worked at first. The dbus change arrived after.
For the moment you should replace the shortcut with a script with the commands above.
Or you could try a one liner, maybe in fish as well.
I’m not a fish expert but it could be something like

eval (dbus-launch) kgpg

I just wanted to test that command in the terminal before I edited anything…

 ╭─fenris@fenris in ~ as 🧙 took 17ms

It won’t launch using the eval command. Also running kgpg from terminal keeps the terminal open as well.

Well I was considering that command but in a fish shell.
Maybe you were still in bash?
Try in a new terminal?
If it doesn’t work, try with a bash script, or do it manually.
At least as a workaround…

I’m not to knowledgeable with this so here’s is my attempt…

#Launching KGpg
eval (dbus-launch) kgpg

I saved this under ~/Documents/ then ran this in the terminal

This is fish syntax. In bash I think


export $(dbus-launch)

Make it executable with e.g.

chmod +x

And launch it with e.g.

Well this works, it just keeps the terminal window open when you run it. Again it won’t cooperate as a menu shortcut however

You need to update the desktop file if you want to start it from a launcher with your custom command. Copy the desktop file out of /usr/share/applications/ and paste it into ~/.local/share/applications/, then edit the Exec= line to use your custom command.

Exec=export $(dbus-launch) && sudo kgpg

Refresh the desktop entries (you may need to log out and log back in), then you should be able to start the application from your launcher.

I get an error message that says…
Failed to execute command “Exec=export $(dbus-launch) && sudo kgpg”.
Failed to execute child process “export” (No such file or directory)

Ah…makes sense I guess, since export is not really a standalone executable (it’s specific to Bash, kind of built in to the shell).

In that case, just use the script you made on the Exec= line.


Be sure to use the full path.

Well that worked!
