SOLVED - How can I temporary disable Firejail for a specific application?

Post by KIMW » Wed May 29, 2019 6:59 am

There many files I cannot access on my file manager (Dolphin).
I read many stuff about Firejail and tried many different command lines and also modified the dolphin.profile but nothing worked.
Firejail is probably a great security app but is difficult to understand.
How can I temporary disable Firejail for a specific application?? In this case Dolphin.

I am not using Dolphin, but if you have a symbolic link for it in usr/local/bin (the link would be to usr/bin/firejail), then you could rename the link; for example from dolphin to dolphin_disabled.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they ain't.

Type this in the terminal:

Code: Select all

cd /usr/local/bin/
sudo unlink dolphin

Thanks pizzadude. Excellent! It did not work for my file manager but it worked for another app.
How can I link that app again?
