Nextcloud client randomly start with root account

Hello guys,

I have a really weird thing happening to me recently,
When I start an application that requires root rights, for example Grub-Customizer, the nextcloud-client app opens itself without I ask and it is on the root config not my user config.
Do you have any idea how I can remove root from using nextcloud app or starting it like that ?

Fedora 37
GNOME 43.3
Nextcloud-client 3.7.4

Thank you

How start root apps? I didn’t understood that one.
The problem occurs when I start Grub customizer and it ask for root permission and then it launches Nextcloud-client

Does this also happen when starting it from a terminal, using sudo?

sudo grub-customizer

Spoiler alert: It does not happen, when you start it with sudo from the command line: :wink:

This brought me to the conclusion that something in the .desktop file must cause the issue. I also found the following post on Stack Exchange, which I don’t completely understand, to be honest, but it brought me to the following solution:

Edit the .desktop file of Grub Customizer…

sudo nano /usr/share/applications/grub-customizer.desktop

…and change the following line from…




EDIT: This solution doesn’t work in this case.

Yes it actually does

Yes you are right. I wrongly assumed that my solution would help, because the behavior you are describing only seems to occur the first time Grub Configurator is started and then only after a reboot, or maybe it will also occur again after sudo has timed out?
