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

How can that be used to run gparted, gsmartcontrol, synaptic, thunar and others? Gparted already uses polkit in buster (and will run under Wayland) and synaptic will be fixed soon [1] — gnome-software works fine now and is better than synaptic anyway. In respect of file managers I think you may be ...

Or, since it's my system I can configure it however I choose :)

I think we should agree to disagree. One really great thing about Linux is choices :)

[You can use sudo -i or sudo -H to launch a graphical application. Your view / I don't agree and will never do it (since Buster). If you want to force the system, you can create a clean policykit rule instead of conflicting the system rules. My rule is simply: ● sudo => commands + ncurse apps in a ...

... etc) in a terminal , but never a graphical application. You can use sudo -i or sudo -H to launch a graphical application. As far as using gksu in KDE there's no technical reason not to - GTK+ and Qt are just graphics toolkits.

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

Yeah I know but still mainly seems silly to me overall. Someone with root/sudo privileges can do whatever they wish to a given system, polkit, policy file or no. Needless to say, I do want a convenient and straight-forward means to launch graphical apps-etc with elevated privs. That's just my views ...

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

Personally planning to continue using gksu/do for awhile yet. 'gksu' which is a GTK interface to open applications in iKDE 5 is probably ( I am even sure ) not a good suggestion. Struggling to find a solution to use "sudo" to open ...

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

Then try to open '/etc/apt/sources.list' in kate or kwrite from Dolphin as user . After modification of this file, you can save it: your password is requested if you are declared as sudoers: is it a problem ? How often do you need this kind of operation ? In my system if I open a text file I'm not ...

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

I may be in a file manager, maybe as a normal user and I may want to edit a configuration from /etc. This is the only one concrete example I required to illustrate. Then try to open '/etc/apt/sources.list' in kate or kwrite from Dolphin as user . After modification of this file, you can save it: yo...

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

The development trend now is to use pkexec to open the GUI as a normal user and only run the actual code needed to perform the operation as root. For example, to edit a system file use gedit admin:///full/path/to/file ^ That will open a copy of the file in gedit (as the normal user) and only invoke...

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

Could you please give only one exeample to explain why you need to open a file manager as root user (assuming you understand the risks) ? I did not say that I needed to open a file manager as root user. But now that you mention it: I do not need to open a file manager as root user. In fact I do not...
