BL5-64bit - GParted failed to start again.


When i try to start it from the menu, a message is telling me that
"Moksha couldn't execute the application:

pkexec /usr/bin/gparted"

I already reinstalled Gparted and eSudo.

What else can I do to fix this, please?

as i said before quit screwing around and breaking everything. things can go glitchy by updates etc. i ran into a couple of issues over a 5 year span maybe but nothing else. i do not know a lot re: linux so i keep it simple. get it working and try not to mess with too much or all of my laptops would be dead on arrival on a daily basis.

last comment to you. i will crawl back under my rock.

geeeezzzzz.

just run sudo gparted from command line. It avoids all these esudo/pkexec/polkit problems.

Although an official fix was recently posted in these forums iirc...

I'm not "screwing around", as you call it.
I had a wifi issue and therefore I hat to switch to another kernel, so I had a good reason to do so.

I don't find this guide about the esudo/pkexec/polkit fix.
Can you point me there?
It doesn't run properly from the terminal either, btw.

I had to change esudo for our next release. This was a hard decision as it can cause issues for users but the sym link replacing pkexec is an old hackish solution that now causes more issues than anything in Bodhi. See my post about the change

I tried that policykit-1-gnome, but it didn't work.
So how can I start gparted from the menu?

As I mentioned before, gparted doesn't work from the terminal either.
It does start, but there's a message about a libparted : 3.2 and a lot of Windows appear just like the ones when I plugin a removable drive.
This is no reliable way to run gparted. I know nothing about further side effects, but I need gparted, at least to check for existing partitioning.

So, how can I start gparted properly?

It sounds like your problem is more than just the known the esudo issue, which would affect it running from menu. Cuz sudo gparted cli eliminates that as a possibility.

As a last resort, run gparted from usb. (i.e. live bodhi, live whatever) Often times you gotta do that anyway if you're messing with the partition you booted from.

Have you tried reinstalling the application?

If that doesn't work what is the full error messages in the terminal?
