gdebi was working very good, but today i tried to use it, it open , but when i click on install package it doesn't work and close and disappear immediately
I have had this happen to me before, as well.
Have you tried
sudo apt install --reinstall gdebi
no, it doesn't work
I wonder if policykit is the problem...
Can you try
sudo apt install --reinstall policykit-1-gnome
Reboot and test...
it doesn't work too.
i tried to run it in terminal, it's working , but i don't know why it doesn't work normal as before.
and i noticed it's working if i open the deb file from open item in menu of gdebi interface, but i don't know why it isn't working directly by click on the deb file as normal
Please relay the output of
Name=GDebi Package Installer
Comment=Install and view software packages
dpkg -L gdebi | grep policy
Also looks good.
Are you running gdebi by clicking a .deb icon that is on the desktop? What about if it is in a folder like ~/Downloads?
that .deb files in documents and try open .deb files in downloads , but not working too.
i tried changing in the command of gdebi in gdebi.desktop, instead of
sh -c "gdebi-gtk %f"
and that solved the problem, i don't know what the difference.
That is a shell command. It really is not a proper fix...
in the recently days , i remembered that i tried to install commands and tried to run gvfsd-admin daemon to open folder as admin(thunar admin://%f), may be that effect on that , and played a lot with pkexec command, i don't know.
i searched for gdebi in this site, and i found that
sh -c "gdebi-gtk %f" in post 19 and found make terminal true in post 16, and the two worked, but i did that in the launcher of the zorinmenu
I am actually concerned about this...
Running it as you are, with potential Authentication issues, may create a security hole in your system.
I would rather not go into detail, publicly, what the above entails.
Plus, you may experience further issues with authentication after a package upgrade - and with other packages as well.
While this 'solution' may suffice for now... I Highly Advise that you back up all personal files and consider a re-install of Zorin OS Lite.
While it may seem tedious, in the long run, you want a fully intact and operational authentication system.
