viking777 Posted January 27, 2009 Report Share Posted January 27, 2009 I have never been a keen command line enthusiast, although I do use it now and then, and I thought I might try 'Fish' to see if it was any better than 'Bash'. I installed it on Linux Mint first and I did find it to be slightly better so I then tried it on Mandriva but came unstuck. It is my normal practice to have shortcuts to programs I use often in a sidebar, particularly root instances of shells and file managers. The shortcuts contain commands such as 'gksu terminal' for example. Trouble is that as soon as I installed 'Fish' this functionality died. Every time I click the shortcut I get the warning 'failed to communicate with gksu-run-helper'. The strange thing is that if I open a user mode terminal and type the same command it loads the root instance normally. The user mode instance runs correctly as well it is only the root mode that wont work as I want it to. If I return the shell to bash, the shortcut works again. It also works normally in Mint. This behaviour is beyond me perhaps someone here can understand it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
