modified thunar.desktop and desktop home shortcut doesn't work

i added "nice -n 1 " to front of every Exec value(line starting with Exec=) of /usr/share/applications/thunar.desktop
all other apps just works fine with this method but while i cant launch thunar shortcuts like "Home" or "File System"

Why?
Also, these files will all get overwritten with updates and you'll lose your edits.
Are you looking at limiting priority for specific users or processes? If so, have a look at "man limits.conf"

all other apps just works fine with this method but while i cant launch thunar shortcuts like "Home" or "File System"

Anything in the log files? ~/.xsession-errors or the journal (if you are using systemd)?

Re: modified thunar.desktop and desktop home shortcut doesn't work

i set a code to update /usr/share/applications after dpkg so that's fine

/usr/bin/nice: ‘file:///’: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/nice: ‘file:///’: No such file or directory

this is the error i got on .xsession-errors

but i replaced "thunar" to "nice -n 1 thunar" not to something like "nice"
just to make sure, i'll link my thunar.desktop file

Re: modified thunar.desktop and desktop home shortcut doesn't work

What I meant was, why are you using this process to adjust the nice/priority level? Why not make the adjustment via limits.conf? That way you won't need to manually adjust every desktop file.

Which version of Xfce and thunar are you running?

Re: modified thunar.desktop and desktop home shortcut doesn't work

i'm using thunar 4.16.10-1, xfce4 4.16 on debian sid

i want to modify the nice level only for desktop apps to prevent it slowing down xfce
if i set nice level for user, it'll also affect xfce

Re: modified thunar.desktop and desktop home shortcut doesn't work

Hmm, I can't replicate this problem on my system. When you say 'shortcuts like "Home" or "File System"', do you mean the ones on the desktop? I'll see if I can test this on a debian sid vm.

Re: modified thunar.desktop and desktop home shortcut doesn't work

No, your desktop file works fine for me in my debian sid VM.
Is xfdesktop managing your desktop?

ps -ef | grep desktop

Re: modified thunar.desktop and desktop home shortcut doesn't work

What happens if you remove the nice commands from your thunar.desktop file (return the file back to its original state)? Does it work again?

Re: modified thunar.desktop and desktop home shortcut doesn't work

I'm at a loss to explain why you're system is impacted but mine isn't with that file. You could try creating a bug report to see if the developer has some ideas as to why it isn't working.
