I found the solution, you have to install the package gnsu-0.2-noarch-1gv.txz from salix repository, and it works.

yes, i noticed that one, but that one uses sudo and it requires users to change /etc/sudoers
while this worked for MATE 1.6, probably it will not work with MATE 1.8 since mate-file-manager-gksu is now merged along with other mate-file-manager plugins to a single caja-extensions package

Why wouldn't it work with mate 1.8? If it needs gksu, it will work with the gnsu package. If it doesn't need gksu, then you don't have a problem in the first place. The way you package the extension, as a single package or in package that includes multiple extensions, makes absolutely no difference.

I have a hunch this might be related to the issue I detail in http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ge-4175486942/.

willysr, would you be willing to test my shadow patches (one at a time) to see if that resolves the OP's report? If I'm right, re-building shadow with either patch should solve this issue.

using the first patch, the problem still persists

edit: previous attempt was being done with PAM package installed. Now it's gone
edit 2: both attempts failed to solve the problem

@willysr: Many thanks for testing things but it seems your system is non-standard enough to make troubleshooting a bit more challenging (too many variables). It will probably be more efficient if I work directly with the OP.

@aszabo: I know you've fixed your problem by using gnsu (sudo frontend) instead of gksu (su frontend). However, it would be valuable if you would temporarily revert to your original setup (where gksu was failing) and upgrade your shadow package with my patched version. I have placed the full set of files needed for building here.

The only changes I've made to Slackware's 14.1 shadow source files are: 1) editing shadow.Slackbuild so my patch is applied and changing the package name to include a "_mancha" suffix and 2) including my two patches (only one is applied).

Please let me know if this changes your gksu behavior. Thanks.

Many thanks for confirming my suspicion your issue was related to "su -c" dropping the controlling tty. I've started a thread which discusses "su -c" and will reference this as another example of breakage.

If you're willing to spend a bit more time troubleshooting, it would be good if you rebuilt shadow using the "relax" patch instead of "revert" by changing line 74 of shadow.SlackBuild from:
Code:
patch -p1 --verbose < $CWD/shadow-4.1.5.1_CVE-2005-4890_revert.diff || exit 1
to:
Code:
patch -p1 --verbose < $CWD/shadow-4.1.5.1_CVE-2005-4890_relax.diff || exit 1
I am quite sure it will work with that patch also but user confirmation would be valuable.

Good to hear that the patch worked
yes, i probably have a non-standard environment since i do most of my testing here on my desktop

For now, i'll wait for upstream (Slackware) to decide on this.
MSB and SBo will get the benefit if this problem is fixed upstream

I can confirm that the shadow package with relax.diff works too.

hi mancha,
I applied your patch and I still get this error: The gksu-run-helper command was not found or is not executable. (when I Alt+f2 gksu thunar) however, running gksu will bring up a window that prompts me to enter the command and user and it seems to run fine. Any ideas as to how I can get the Alt+f2 function to work?

thanks in advance.

--scarrs

EDIT
I got gksu to work using the root password by doing the following:
mkdir /usr/lib/libgksu
ln -s /usr/lib64/libgksu/gksu-run-helper /usr/lib/libgksu/gksu-run-helper
is this acceptable or is it me and I should be able to enter my user passwd instead of the root passwd?

Hi. Your issue is unrelated to the one solved with my Shadow patch.

But I downloaded gksu, libgksu, and libgtop from SBo to see if I could help. I can reproduce your issue on x86_64 Slackware and tracked down the problem.

The patch I prepared corrects things. Place it in the "patches" dir, make the following change to the SlackBuild script, and rebuild:

Code:
--- libgksu.SlackBuild.SBo
+++ libgksu.SlackBuild
@@ -79,6 +79,11 @@ patch -p0 < $CWD/patches/libgksu-2.0.12-
 patch -p1 < $CWD/patches/libgksu-2.0.12-notests.patch
 patch -p1 < $CWD/patches/libgksu-2.0.12-automake-1.11.2.patch
 
+# Patch from mancha
+if [ "$ARCH" = "x86_64" ]; then
+  patch -p1 < $CWD/patches/libgksu-2.0.12-x86_64-path.diff
