... many things could be a try it and see situation. Using older kernels on Buster. Have formerly installed archived software from former releases (gksu) and yep, continues working w/o problems.

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

... from the folks at freedesktop anyway. Apparently the file as regards gparted is exempt, polkit doesn't bother interfering when it's launched with gksu/do. However the case with thunar wasn't the same, custom actions such as "edit as root" for files etc ceased working with gksu under ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

That junk above was more some funny snarks aimed at the faction of gnu/nix users who are constantly harping on sec, sec, SECURITY !!! Privacy, OMG, OMG. Constantly giving other users the impression many things on this platform and using their OS is like handling unstable nitroglycerin, when it's not...
