BL5.1-32bit - Again, Synaptic and GParted won't start anymore!


I remember something about policykit-1-gnome and reinstalling esudo and something about holding esudo.
The polkit is present on my Bodhi and enabled in the start-up programs and I did reinstall esudo, already.

Still, the mentioned tools won't start.

Where did I go wrong, please and where is the thread with the guide on how to fix this, please? I cannot find it anymore.

Is this the new 32 bit 5.1 iso because it works fine on the machine I installed on this morning. Have you done all updates and sudo apt upgrade and then rebooted?

If you're on 5 upgraded to 5.1 then link is here. But check if upgrade and reboot sorts it first.

Yes, I did all the updates, including the reboot, but that was the beginning of my current problems.

I had to rebuild my tray bar content, and some start up programs, as well as the Engage bar.

In fact the system almost looked the way when I just installed it.

I installed BL 5 several weeks ago, updated to 5.1, and did the latest updates this afternoon.

@ serendipity7000

I did the steps as described in your link, but still it doesn't work.

Synaptic start only after replacing the Exec entry of its launcher like that:

Code:
pkexec-synaptic
to

Code:
gksudo synaptic
The launcher of GParted isn't edited, jet, so its Exec entry looks like that:

Code:
/usr/sbin/gparted %f
which doesn't start.

Same thiing happened to me about a week or two ago when I ran updates on my legacy machines, wiped the shelves, wallpaper, theme, etc. still havent taken the time to fully recover. I haven't tested those root requiring apps yet tho...

Exactly, mine is the legacy version, too.

Looks like something went wrong during or with the latest updates.

I must add, I didn't use that machine for some weeks, so there were quite a lot of updates to be done.

I'm also running a BL 5.1 as a 64 bit version on another machine.
Everything is ok with that one, btw.


Referring to post #4, the only way to make it work so far, is by inserting gksudo right after Exec= of the according launchers.

EDIT:
The question is, why doesn't the polkit/reinstall esudo fix work here?
