I am sorry I do not understand the solution well enough to update the KDE File Chooser section of the FF Wiki article myself.

Does that have any side effects with other Mozilla applications?

GTK_USE_PORTAL=1 causes thunderbird to crash

I dont know about that - some users reported it but then stopped reported ... I was never able to reproduce .. and just now doing it the most basic way (GTK_USE_PORTAL=1 thunderbird) works fine.

erm .. actually .. I guess it depends on how you read this final response :

Just installed thunderbird to check, It started (although it used the gtk file chooser) which was weird since the bug report says that 68 (newer than repo, and the next release) is still affected, I decided to add my account, closed thunderbird, try to open it again and it seg faulted.

Ah. I noticed TB was finnicky about certain things too .. but if following the guide from the wiki correctly I could not reproduce.
(for example, not putting /usr/bin/sh -c before the quoted "GTK_USE_PORTAL=1 /usr/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird ..." caused the desktop file to be unlaunchable)

EDIT - I do notice period at the end of the cp line now. Though it shouldnt matter.

But I think you are right - it appears TB still uses GTK regardless.
And I think FF is too, for that matter ... :thinking:

No luck here, still seg faults even with
Exec=/usr/bin/sh -c "GTK_USE_PORTAL=1 /usr/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird %u"
(tried both from a terminal or as per the wiki, a desktop file in .local/share/applications)
I have no problem with FF, it uses the kde file chooser.

Alright. I cant reproduce the segfaults ... but the desktop.file with modified lines:

Exec=/usr/bin/sh -c "GTK_USE_PORTAL=1 /usr/lib/firefox/firefox %u"
Exec=/usr/bin/sh -c "GTK_USE_PORTAL=1 /usr/lib/firefox/firefox --new-window %u"
Exec=/usr/bin/sh -c "GTK_USE_PORTAL=1 /usr/lib/firefox/firefox --private-window %u"

works fine for having native file picker in KDE for me.
But only on FF. TB is stubborn it seems.

In Downgrading packages someone got a little backtick happy. :wink:

Fixed, that is what happens when you use ` instead of ' :wink:

Thanks for noticing it


Fixed, thanks for pointing it out

SB apparently has nothing better to do :wink: :smiley:

I try to contribute where I can. Never got the wiki account so I have to keep pestering all of you.

This might be a nit-pick but in the section about adding the DOWNGRADE_FROM_ALA=1 to environment variables...
A suggestion would be to include a link to an explanation of what that is and how to do it (which is outside the scope of that wiki entry).
I know, it might seem like, if a person is downgrading a package they should know this, correct?

Fixed, plus a couple of other typos. That page was written using Commonwealth spellings, so eventually I got overwhelmed by wavy red underscores and gave up on spell-checking :wink:


It says:

How to Create an Account[edit]
To request a Manjaro Wiki account, send an email to our support.

Does this still work? I don't know, otherwise I would have changed it myself.

Since my Wiki's been removed.
Guess I'll post an error here.

In the section for Vbox


sudo pacman -Syu install virtualbox linux54-virtualbox-host-modules

Should be this...

sudo pacman -Syu virtualbox linux54-virtualbox-host-modules
