Xfce - Garuda Boot Options from Xfce start menu ask for password and closes. If I press edit on the icon and copy the command to the terminal it works as expected. If I select Garuda Welcome and select Garuda Boot Options it works as expected. I put this under Xfce as it is the only Garuda DM I have on here at this time.


Created a /bin/bash file and run it from the Garuda Boot Options from the Xfce start menu and it works as expected. Seems there is a polkit bug somewhere in the Xfce menu system.

pkexec env DISPLAY=$DISPLAY XAUTHORITY=$XAUTHORITY HOME=$HOME garuda-boot-options -style kvantum

Command above used in the /bin/bash file.
