how do i create a custom application desktop/start menu icon so that the command it run will run as root?
This commands are all running in User context as far as I remember, the only way without tweaking around would be to let your command get started as a custom command. Which kind of purpose are you looking at?
i am running a script but it require root access
if i run the script using a terminal session using user session, it run successfully
in which context, root or user?
in user context
its a shell script… which is saved in /wfs
if i run the script using a terminal in user context, it will run successfully
but using the same command in Custom Application > icon name is terminal, it will not run successfully
Then you could maybe try to play around with this:
pkexec xterm -e “bin/bash /wfs/yourscript.sh”
u mean enter above command in the Custom Application > command ?
yes but with the path and script name in that line adapted to your needs.
nice, it works
but its prompting a terminal showing some logs and auto disappear when the script finished running. i think i just need to modify the script to dump into null
