XnView MP does not show me some files

Post by IxenPDF »

My System: Linux
My XnView MP Version 0.98.4

When I go to ...

Code: Select all

/var/spool/cups/
... in my linux file manager (thunar) I get this:
ksnip_20210730-162939.jpg
So you see, there are several files in this folder.

When I open in XnView MP the folder

Code: Select all

/var/spool/cups/
, I get this:
ksnip_20210730-163012.jpg
So you see: The folder is empty.

My expectation was, that I will also see the same files I can see in thunar.

What do I miss? How can I see this files in XnView MP? Thank you.

You seem to run thunar with root privileges.
You need root privileges to access the files in this folder.

Ah yes I see . Thank you. You are right. When I try the same without root privileges I also can not see these files in thunar.

So: How can I have root privileges in XnView?
