I think pkexec must have been working all along. Otherwise that script wouldn't have worked. The problem was that the synaptic-pkexec script had disappeared during the update and had to be reinstated by hand. I can't imagine how that happened.

Post This problem dates back years ....

This problem dates back several years. One solution in the link below:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1857...plication-menu

(pkexec and friends are not installed on my Bodhi systems)

You have to do this sometimes when synaptic is updated because apparently the
menu file /usr/share/applications/synaptic.desktop gets back leveled on some updates.
I have fixed it probably every couple of years since maybe 2012 if not before.
My opinion is there are alternating dev threads with a fix in one but not the other.
And that is a programming issue that dates back decades with no automagic solutions.
When the stable release is patched, dev needs to be fixed too.
(a persistent problem in too much of GNU/Linux)

Yesterday synaptic-pkexec out of the blue failed with "no display available" It still runs from sudo synaptic though. The synaptic-pkexec script is still there in /usr/bin. Any ideas? All my other pkexec scripts still work. Go figure.

Hi, guys,

I have a machine with Bodhi 4.5.5 that I have not used for several months. After installing the updates several programs stopped responding when I try to launch them via menu (Synaptic and GParted).

There are might be other apps - I have not tried all installed apps yet.


There must be a better solution than writing bash scripts for all the programs that do not launch.

Any ideas?

Thank you,

BM

I think something borked your esudo install. Try

Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install --reinstall esudo

Thank you very much!

I've never come across eSudo before. Is it the Enlightenment version of gksu or kdesu?

eSudo is a python script intended to replace gksudo (gksu) that uses the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries python bindings. It is not part of the enlightenment code base but of course could be used with pure enlightenment.

Did you really mean sudo apt-get upgrade? Or did you intend to write sudo apt get update.

Btw, using "dist-upgrade" (more privileges) is recommended over "upgrade".

Hi, Charles,

I used my usual deal

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Then I followed it with the eSudo re-installation. It worked like a charm.

worked for me on a new 5.0rc2 install. Fixed synaptic & grub-customizer, probably everything else that required sudo...

I have the same problem with Synaptic on Bodhi 4. It happened after the last update && upgrade. The above solution (sudo apt-get install --reinstall esudo) solved the problem - thanks.

Menu icons disappeared

Hi, guys,

After the recent update, I have almost all menu icons disappeared.

I remember this problem happening before, and there was a successful solution suggested here. I just cannot find that post.

Can someone guide me in the right direction again?

Thank you,

BM

I had this happen too at some point. In my case I had to rm ~/.cache/efreet/* if I remember right; probably try renaming it first and if that works, delete it...
