Re: What is the replacement of kdesudo and gksu in Buster?

Oops retraction: Actually do care which distro people choose. Would like to see them go with Debian proper. Those "based" on vast majority, are just Debian called something else. Maintainers choose the theme, a cool brand image, non-free all included out-of-box and they select the default ...

Re: What is the replacement of kdesudo and gksu in Buster?

Wouldn't worry overmuch about it OP. Wayland can still be a good ways off anyway. Also hoping many independent and volunteer project developers and maintainers stick to their guns and keep doing what they've always done. Which will almost assuredly include coming out with alternatives and options. I...

Re: What is the replacement of kdesudo and gksu in Buster?

In respect of file managers I think you may be SOL. Isn't the future wonderful? :mrgreen: In respect to Debian, if it continues like this, users will start to move to other distros. Isn't the future wonderful? :mrgreen: It's not a Debian thing, the process is being driven by the upstream developers...

Re: What is the replacement of kdesudo and gksu in Buster?

LMAO Wizard, good point. Doesn't really matter to me in a personal computing environment, though a multi-user situation it likely would. Have two Debian installs, one with (lightdm), one without and using this approach on that OS. Though thanks, now that you bring it up, may go ahead and scrub light...

Re: What is the replacement of kdesudo and gksu in Buster?

wonder how many people are running X under the root account? I can. I have not checked lately, but I did put complete root accounts on each of my 4 rolling images. The last time I check one was a basic amd64 image after upgraded to buster. There were a handful of changes and a few things no longer ...

Re: What is the replacement of kdesudo and gksu in Buster?

I had an amusing thought - wonder how many people are running X under the root account?

The only display manager I know of that runs X as an unprivileged user is GDM, and is the reason I don't use a display manager :mrgreen:

Re: What is the replacement of kdesudo and gksu in Buster?

... upstream. Just that it is, what it is and overall what we have to work with or around. Mentioned (and it was confirmed by Wizard10000) no reason gksu won't continue working fine in Buster, not sure what issue you're having with lxqt-sudo either. Can't fathom why there'd be any problem, in particular ...

Re: What is the replacement of kdesudo and gksu in Buster?

... not debians fault. Thunar works fine, so the issue is with the file managers not yet compliant with polkit. So, in this case, kde is the issue. gksu has been gone for awhile now. spacefm still works fine with sudo.

Re: What is the replacement of kdesudo and gksu in Buster?

... sudo poses a security hazard so, this workaround is not good, but IMO the worst of the worst is to rely on deprecated packages like kdesudo and gksu that are not maintained anymore. We have synaptic using kdesudo and who knows how many more are using gksu or kdesudo. Here is a tiny script as ...

Re: What is the replacement of kdesudo and gksu in Buster?

write pkexec rules for applications you need them for and share them with the world. I tried, guess nobody was paying attention... I tried a couple too, one worked and another didn't. Which is one of the points I was making - I found a different way to accomplish the same task, different software I...

It's not a debian issue at all, so swapping distro's won't help. In this particular thread the culprit is kde. A DE does not a distro make.
