Robert - peopla here who know you and the hard work you do on/for bodhi aren't blaming you. we appreciate all of the hard work. i am so dumb that i do not understand most of what you guys are talking about; i try to follow your advice when needed. however - there are questions as to why some of these anomalies appear from time to time. but then again - that is the nature of anomalies...

I am heartened to see the excellent interaction here, with the senior Members volunteering to take the subject, under consideration, very seriously. Personally, I am not Computer savvy, but have learned many things over the last few years... switching over to Ubuntu/Linux/Debian OS... completely "rejecting" Windows

THANK YOU All (Y)

At some point I plan on trying to backports e22's policykit module so we can have a consistent looking native e policykit ... assuming i am understanding what it does correctly.

Regardless I am going to try to make sure we don't have such a conflict with esudo and policykit in the Bodhi linux 6.0 release. For now I am unsure how to deal with the current situation in BL5.x. It is already in our repos with a symlink overwrite of pkexec in the deb file and that seems rather hard to fix properly to me. My only comment on that is I didn't do it and it is not my fault.


I guess I was just wondering why Bodhi was spending so much time and effort on esudo, when Ubuntu had dropped support for gksudo, especially since there are so many threads being generated from the polkit/esudo issues.

But your right, the polkit window doesn't fit the bodhi theme like esudo.

I must protest however, It must be your fault! I know you sabataged polkit, hehehe!

I wonder if some of these apps, just haven't got around to updating or creating pkexec scripts for Ubuntu 18.04?
Bleachbit wouldn't start "as root" except from sudo in the terminal, but seems to be fixed now, and I still had to make a pkexec script for gparted.

ylee I ran some programs I use in a freshly installed bodhi 5, fully updated. I Also ran
Code:
apt-get install esudo --reinstall
and here are my results. Hopefully this will help you with Bodhi 5, but you already may be aware of this....


All programs were launched from Bodhi's everything launcher unless otherwise noted.

Updated esudo only


Won't Start

pcmanfm-pkexec (called from right click context menu in pcmanfm)
gparted
users & Groups from package " gnome-system-tools " (runs but not as root)
gdebi (Called by double clicking on .deb from pcmanfm)

Starts

synaptic
bleachbit as root

After running lxpolkit with esudo

Won't Start

pcmanfm-pkexec
gparted
gdebi

Starts

users & Groups
synaptic
bleachbit as root

After removing esudo and running lxpolkit only


Starts

pcmanfm-pkexec
synaptic
bleachbit run as root
gdebi
users & groups
gparted

Maybe the answer is to fork lxpolkit and call it esudo or something. LOL!

Hi Randy4bodhi ... Thanks for the last post that seems to help many like me who are totally new...

-----------------------------------------------
After removing esudo and running lxpolkit only

Starts

pcmanfm-pkexec
synaptic
bleachbit run as root
gdebi
users & groups
gparted
-----------------------------------------------

Could you kindly INSTRUCT the sequence to be followed so that novices like me could understand how to proceed?

Thanks

In a terminal install lxpolkit...

Code:
sudo apt-get install lxpolkit
Then remove esudo (be aware this might break eepdater, bodhi's graphical updater. But updates can still be run in the terminal with ...
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Code:
sudo apt-get remove esudo
Install apturl just incase its needed (it maybe optional)...

Code:
sudo apt-get install apturl
Then add lxpolkit to your startup applications. menu>settings>settings panel click apps in the top tabs then click startup applications. Next in the system tab, click on lxpolkit to check the box to auto start. Save and close. Log out and back in to load lxpolkit.

Well not exactly. After following outlined steps, after reboot I get this in the middle of my desktop:

I haven't tried apps that require root yet.

There is another start up app call policykit authentication agent. it is another polkit agent. If you have it, it can be used instead of lxpolkit. But both cannot be used at the same time. There are also other polkit agents. Any of these should work. Just choose one or the other in startup applications.

Read about it here...
