Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

^ Welkies Debbie. :) @Wiz10k: Also from what I understand Openbox may be killed off, if not rewritten due to Wayland !!!! That alone is reason to stop all work on any such Waylandish thingy until such time as any needs of Openbox have been seen to !!!! The Xwayland thing aggravates me as well. Backw...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

It's just "pkexec gedit ..." and I'm editing system files. Don't do that! Do this instead: gedit admin:///full/path/to/system/file ^ That will open a copy of the file in gedit as your normal user and only invoke root (via gvfs) to save the file. EDIT: and remove those polkit rules. @OP: p...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

I want to thank OP and everyone for this thread because I learned about pkexec and setup two policy files for gedit and featherpad. I like it because I don't have to "xhost +" and "sudo -i" anymore. It's just "pkexec gedit ..." and I'm editing system files. Thanks, ever...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

^ Hopefully, thinking the same. :) Though the speed @ which systemd spread was more quickly than I'd honestly expected too. Also the degree to which the/any alternatives were effectively knocked aside in the deal. Again I don't dislike the thing, same goes for the proposed justifications behind Wayl...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

@Wizard10k, yeppers still an excellent point fellow nixer. :D Though Wayland is on the way too. Which I see valid technical reasoning behind it. Even though I don't have a fraction of the skill or understanding of the big picture, the real bigwigs involved with gnu/Linux do. Not even sure I'm quali...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

Hey not saying you don't have a point too CwF. Just that I prefer it the older way, will eventually move on but right now I like what I'm accustom to and don't feel like switching. Sheesh, even went ahead and disabled polkit altogether for awhile with no noticeable ill effects, outside of some minor...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

... !!! You're missing my point. It may be a useless excercise to switch, yes. One is current, one is obsolete. There is no usabilty advantage to gksu. You are not able to do something with gksu I can't without it. Basically, I offer a fresh chair cover but you won't get up. Then you do get up ...

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?

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

Why would you do this? I purged gksu in stretch. Since stretch pkexec works fine if you set it up. pkexec is a pain to set up. I've done it and dislike it. If I was designing Debian that would be one of the first to go along with systemd ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

While I don't mind having obsolete packages, it better have a good reason. Something for which there is no alternative. GKSU offers zero. There is literally nothing it adds. All root options are available within ONE click. That's zero keystrokes. Why is it better to use an obsolete ...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

Pointless observation and includ rant: In many ways think gnu/Linux is regressing, when it was an uber diverse sub-culture of geeks who were contributing cause they love tech, it was rich and full. Now with so much control consolidated in the hands of a few (commercial interests, like Redhat etc etc...

Re: My solution to gksu being deprecated/Buster.

... the changes ... In the end resistance is futile, the borg are consolidating their control of gnu/Nix fellas !!! :D I don't care though, I like gksu, it still works and unless I switch it out for the aforementioned lxqt-sudo (probably will) will keep using what I like. Yeah ... I think many ...
