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...

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

Buster is the stable version of Debian ans stable means STABLE; without the small problems we could find in in Testing or Sid. Debian should not have released a new stable release without a straightforward replacement of kdesudo and gsudo. This is UNACCEPTABLE. :evil: What is UNACCEPTABLE is the gr...

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

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

... without any password. With a root terminal available I never bother using a password at all. That can be set in the policy files. I did steal the gksu terminal icon, I like it. I converted to this in late stretch, and busters since work the same. Things like gparted, gdebi, bleachbit, usbview, ...

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

pkexec fails to find the program; it seems it ignores the $PATH variable, exactly the same as lxqt-sudo. If I specify the path of the program it asks for the root password, but it answers with "==== AUTHENTICATION FAILED ===". I have checked with the su command and my root password works f...

What is the replacement of kdesudo and gksu in Buster?

Kdesudo and gksu are not anymore in Buster. How are we supposed to open a graphical application when it is called from another graphical application like a file manager or the system menu?

Tips for viewing logs? in GUI?

... I have to do it from the workstation itself--which is isolated on its own segmented network. Buster now sports Wayland, which means I can't use GKSU for running GUI log viewers. Does anyone have any recommendations here? Am I going about this all wrong? I don't have the resources of an enterprise ...

Re: Is there any software you miss that used to be in Debian

gksu.

Gosh, I don't know how I forgot about that one :)

I just installed gksu from Oldstable on a fresh Sid install - it still works.

Re: Solved -Virtual Machine Manager 2.0.0 in Buster

... does - things that old ways are leaving, new ways are not solidified, so things don't work without actually being broken. Root stuff (pkexec/gksu/Phil Collins), iptables is still required, and more. Add another. Qemu-img, a favorite of mine, has changed. It appears to be improved. Syntax ...

Why? That's like installing a deadbolt lock in the bathroom door. After I took out gksu from stretch the only thing I missed was the cool root terminal icon... I use it for a root terminal button not provided by gksu...You can enable the user with sudo to nix the ...

Re: one big partition :)

... fine. I'm about 80% back up and running, got a few more applications to install. BTW (and you don't get to holler at me for this either), getting gksu working on a fresh Sid install was a bit of a pain in the backside :)
