esudo changes

Due to the large number of post related to esudo losing functionality and/or apps like synaptic, gdebi, ... ceasing to function after updates, I have repackaged esudo and remove the symlink to pkexec.

This is unfortunate but necessary for our next release to go smoothly. It has been something Štefan and I have talked about for a long time but Jeff gave the ok on it.

What this means practically speaking is if you are not using policy kit to open apps like synaptic et al and have been instead using esudo then after updating to the new esudo deb file these apps are going to fail to launch.

To fix this issue you need to start using policy kit.

First make sure policykit-1-gnome is installed:

sudo apt-get install policykit-1-gnome
Second, We have to add PolicyKit Authentication Agent to the Mokshas startup program list.

Open Moksha's settings Panel: Menu ⟶ Settings ⟶ Setting Panel
And add it your startup programs as pictured below:

Attachment 29511

Be sure you click the Apply Button!

Now reboot. And all programs attempting to open as root using pkexec should work properly

Fantastic Robert. I will check it soon. Need to fix some GTK themes as we discussed.
