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...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

... desktop gnu/nix, this kind of thing is fairly well worthless. Not like it's all that big a deal though. Can be reconfig'ed, are others similar to gksu which aren't deprecated too. Actually would think at least its best to consider them or embrace this newer arrangement. Ah ... still see it as ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

I started the gksu purge halfway through Stretch xfce, only scarfed the root terminal icon. Using pkexec I have both direct launchers for passwordless terminal, synaptic, thunar and whatever, but also a user thunar with many root ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

Yet more brilliance, we'll have gnu/nix untouchable by end of business day! How about, triple confirmation dialogues?! Edit a system file, go to save, cancel-no-yes, hit yes ... Another popup, are you really sure you want to save? Cancel-no-yes, ... yes + enter. Really, really sure you want to save?...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

One can never be too secure afterall. So came up with another monumental leap forward in security. How about a systemd timer unit or crontab ? Admin is logged in, ... Popup or text on screen ... It's been detected that you're using the admin account. This is bad security practice, please validate us...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

Welcome, of course still working fine in Buster, no reason it shouldn't. Not like gksu/do hadn't forever. Still believe many of these changes are aimed at enterprise gnu/nix applications rather than overly relevant to avg desktop nixer's. Not griping, have to be ...

Re: Weird behavior / admin privileges lost

... really not the person to ask overall. Haven't even bothered trying the pkexec junk on it. Personally for the time being have fallen back to using gksu. Others could explore stuff like lxqt-sudo, kdesu or whatever else suits a nixers fancy. Gksu is deprecated, gtk-gnome stuff anyway and known to ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

Mentioned it was used forever without problems. The lack of maintenance and any security issues were present for quite awhile without ...
