Are you running X using a display manager that's not GDM? If so, X is running under the root account. This is the reason I quit using display managers :)

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

^ Nn worries definitely see where you're coming from fellow nixer. The gnu/Nix gawds punished me for being an overly sensitive ahole, the project I'd thought had succeeded, while works is not right. So it's back to the drawing board. Dratz ! Running on coffee fumes here. :)

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

Apology accepted.
Over the years we've had possibly hundreds of posts where people have added the wrong repos and hacked things they shouldn't have hacked. It's very hard to support and best not to encourage it.

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

Public apology, sorry Sunrat, have no idea why I read what you'd said and interpreted it so harshly. What you'd typed was nowhere near as big a reprimand as I was taking it to be and so ended up lashing out. Sorry fellow nixer ... Had just gotten done successfully following a tute to do something I ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

What about using su-to-root instead of gksu , like this?: su-to-root -X -c <application> Nope. chris@BOSSDESK:~$ su-to-root -X -c dolphin kdesu(13194)/kdesu (kdelibs) KDESu::PtyProcess::exec: [ /build/kde4libs-5CvfXW/kde4libs-4.14.38/kdesu/process.cpp ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

... and gnu/Linux period. How many years did all these people who are flipping out and self righteously strutting around shaking fingers at people use gksu/do ? How many times did it blow up their computer(s) or kill them etc ? :D Like I said some folks here clearly need to get over themselves. Don't ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

^ Hate to break it to you but you are not the forum admin nor anyone who gets to decide who does or says what, what someone elects to share via post. If all the warnings weren't enough to make it very clear to someone that this is not an approved type of thing then they are obviously tarded anyway a...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

@Deb-fan could you please provide a TL;DR with your posts? I can't read them any more. I also don't use gksu or even sudo, and try to avoid deprecated practices. If the developers decided to remove/replace things, I will usually go along with them. I'm not going to make a Frankendebian ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

What about using su-to-root instead of gksu, like this?:
Code: Select all
su-to-root -X -c <application>


I learned about it here:
https://forum.siduction.org/index.php?topic=5060.0

And yes, it's in Buster (I just checked). It comes with the menu package.

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

Thanks as always Stevep. Am happy as things are, gksu/do in all it's deprecated(sec issue ridden)glory. :P Glad the thing is still working in Buster, though will settle on something better in time. UPDATE: :) That'd be a big, HUGE, VERY SIZEABLE ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

MX Linux made a custom mx-pkexec package, and its gksu is just a link to mx-pkexec, but if you want a GUI deb installer that still works, just install deepin-deb-installer from the standard repos. MX also has right-click deb install custom actions ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

I'm gonna say what I said in the other thread. Wonder how many folks here are running X as root? Not me. I don't even use sudo. I still use su (although I have added the -) when I need to use access root. Pointless observation and includ rant: In many ways think gnu/Linux is regressing, when it was...
