BL5-32bit - eSudo in the menu missing


In order to open a system folder or file in BL 4.5 I started eSudo, entered my password and typed for example:

Code:
leafpad /etc/fstab
Then the file opened with higher privileges and I was able to edit it.

Now I'm running BL5.
Synaptic says, eSudo is actually installed.
But where is it?
There's no entry of eSudo in the menu.

Are you able to use/open it from terminal? If the software is installed you should be able to find where it is by using the whereis, which or possibly locate commands. If you want to then have it in your main menu, I'm sure there is a way but I haven't used Bodhi so can't help with that.

i don't recall esudo being in the applications menu in 4.5. not saying it wasn't there, just don't recall it being so that being said, you can find it using the quick launcher. however, from that window i am unable to run any commands as that field is inaccessible. on my 5.0 system, esudo is generally autolaunched before i try and open any program like gparted that needs root access.

i was able to open fstab for editing by opening a terminal and issuing:
Code:
sudo epad /etc/fstab
*epad being my generic text editor. substitute whichever you choose. i know that wasn't exactly what you were looking for, but perhaps an acceptable workaround until someone else may be able to help with your menu question.

At some point Jeff removed esudo from the menu. But if it is installed there is a desktop file at /usr/share/applications/esudo.desktop

Edit this file as root and change the line:

Code:
NoDisplay=false
to

Code:
NoDisplay=true
.

Restart Moksha and esudo should be in your menu.

Be aware updates to esudo (which should be rare if at all) may kill this fix and you have to repeat it.

Thank you!
Now, eSudo is there, even without restarting Moksha.

NP sometimes you just need to know where to look or who to ask

Glad to have helped
