What does "depending on your setup" mean?

You are completely correct, I don't know what I was thinking of. I like to test everything, and, at the time of editing, I knew the example worked with '--profile=/etc/firejail/thunar.profile'. Yet, when I tried the example with '--profile=/etc/firejail/Thunar.profile', it failed. Hence the note. Now that you have brought it to my attention, I checked again, and both worked. Go figure! .... The basic example is sound though(?) IrvineHimself (talk) 15:12, 22 October 2017 (UTC)

I've removed the note, should I remove the example? IrvineHimself (talk) 16:35, 22 October 2017 (UTC)
I have removed the Accurate flag. Which example? Could you be more specific? --Fengchao (talk) 23:31, 22 October 2017 (UTC)
The example to launch 'Thunar Bulk Rename' inside a sandbox. IrvineHimself (talk) 00:35, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
If you have time, I think the whole "Desktop files" section should be merged to Configuration. The example could be removed because it is already explained in Configuration. --Fengchao (talk) 05:29, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
I've removed the example. Are you sure that "Configuration" is the best place for the "Desktop files" section? While "Configuration" might benefit from a minor re-write to bring it more in line with the updated page, "Desktop files" seems a more natural fit inside "Using Firejail by default"?

Sorry, it should be "Using Firejail by default". I wrongly thought this section belongs to Configuration. --Fengchao (talk) 02:54, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Questionable statements, e.g. how does "updatedb"....

Again, I can only agree. The entry was there before I tried to update the Firejail page to cover recent developments and rationalize the page layout. When I was trying to figure out why 'Thunar' was not being sandboxed, suggestions like 'updatedb' just produced errors. On the other hand, the specific problem with 'Thunar' is fairly common.

I have tried to clean up the entry to make it more acceptable. Could you let me no if it's okay. IrvineHimself (talk) 14:03, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I have a a question about "Some applications, notably Thunar, run with only one instance. As a result, the profile will not be loaded until the next login". According to the linked report, a new symbolic links needs be created from firejail to /usr/local/bin/Thunar, and then a new login should occur. That seems something different to me or at least some part of the information is left out. -- Alad (talk) 15:19, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Since it was in the section about troubleshooting symlinks, I didn't think it needed to be explicitly stated. However I edited the entry to reflect your concerns. IrvineHimself (talk) 16:50, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

Some of these workarounds need to be in the sandbox' directories?

If yes? Which? My edit of this being the case for the pulseaudio thing might be incorrect.Jasper1984 (talk) 01:11, 2 December 2017 (UTC)
