Re: Is there any software you miss that used to be in Debian

gksu.

Gosh, I don't know how I forgot about that one :)

I just installed gksu from Oldstable on a fresh Sid install - it still works.

Re: Solved -Virtual Machine Manager 2.0.0 in Buster

... does - things that old ways are leaving, new ways are not solidified, so things don't work without actually being broken. Root stuff (pkexec/gksu/Phil Collins), iptables is still required, and more. Add another. Qemu-img, a favorite of mine, has changed. It appears to be improved. Syntax ...

Re: one big partition :)

Why? That's like installing a deadbolt lock in the bathroom door. After I took out gksu from stretch the only thing I missed was the cool root terminal icon... I use it for a root terminal button not provided by gksu...You can enable the user with sudo to nix the ...

Re: one big partition :)

... fine. I'm about 80% back up and running, got a few more applications to install. BTW (and you don't get to holler at me for this either), getting gksu working on a fresh Sid install was a bit of a pain in the backside :)

Re: [IT'S A BUG] Can't launch partitionmanager, kdesu hangs

... will continue working around them for now. Haven't gotten around to switching to Buster yet either though. Been leaning towards continued use of gksu/do, obsolete (sec concerns) or not even if would have to snatch the packages from archives and forego Wayland too. Might opt for using lxqt-sudo ...

Re: Is there any software you miss that used to be in Debian

These are listed, in synaptic, as local or obsolete, since they're installed, I don't miss them yet... gksu - I don't have wayland, someday if/when I'm forced to do way with gksu[do] I'm going to really be struggling. leafpad - it's not my primary editor. Sometimes caja won't ...

Re: DEBIAN STRETCH TO BUSTER UPGRADE WOES

... click it just works. In other threads I tried to point out gdebi works fine using its own filechooser dialog, or from a root thunar. I purged gksu in stretch and started the transition, and waited for all the fixes, and now on buster everything does work. If I want to, I still have a functional ...

Debian Stretch to Buster upgrade woes

... in Buster, unbelievable. You are stuck with Firefox ESR. To add Quantum I added the repo from SolydXK. ### LOCAL GUI PROGRAMS AS ROOT ### - gksu/gksudo has been deprecated. The recommended method to run GUI programs with root is now to run them with "pkexec programname" (policykit). ...

Re: no root term after upgrade deb 9-10

OK, the "root terminal" menu entry is provided by gksu.desktop, which is part of the gksu package and has been removed for Debian 10.

Here's a "safer" alternative: https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php ... 34#p521734 ← see the bit after the EDIT.

Re: Screen-Scaling for applications running as sudo

Thank you for the hint, Wizard10000, I was originally also thinking along these lines. Makes total sense. But trying it: kdesu, kdesudo, gksu and gksudo are all not available in Buster anymore. ... if I am not missing something. And "sudo systemsettings5" brings strange results. ...

Re: Screen-Scaling for applications running as sudo

... root account match user settings in KDE was to run systemsettings as root so configurations were written to root's home directory. kdesu, kdesudo, gksu or gksudo systemsettings5 will get you where you want to be.

Re: no root term after upgrade deb 9-10

... applications as root. This is the point . based on shep's post i tried entering the command manually from a normal terminal as reg user ( gksu /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator). You still have some Stretch packages in your Buster. I think what you do is wrong simply because "gksu/gksudo,kdesu,kdesudo" ...
