Unable to Boot Back Into Snapshot of System After Issue With Grub

My version is also 1.6.3, and when i launch it from the terminal using "btrfs-assistant-launcher," the output is the same as before.

Launching from the NWG menu throws a polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 pop-up box, but after authenticating nothing happens.

You launched it every conceivable way except the one I actually recommended. :wink:

:laughing: Sorry about that, I missed that somehow!

Launching it this way also throws a polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 pop-up window, but then fails.

I guess I will have to test it again when I get a free minute.

It was working in sway.

All the launchers are utterly broken on wayland, try sudo -E btrfs-assistant (= Run the non-launcher version via sudo)

This is the only way I know about to get this to work

Note: PKExec will not work.

There is one pkexec that may work.

/usr/lib/garuda/pkexec-gui btrfs-assistant

You are right TNE, that does work--although interestingly it runs without theming:

For reference, sudo -E btrfs-assistant-bin applies a theme and adds transparency as well.

I guess that would be thanks to the -E flag?

This kind of reminds me of way back in March when we were first hacking around on this Sway/Btrfs Assistant thing: Btrfs Assistant 1.0 is nearly here - #28 by BluishHumility

pkexec-gui does not apply the home variable, on purpose even. If your theme is applied on the root user, it will show here too.
