gksu and dbus connect


Searching doesn't provide an answer.

When I run gksu syncbackup or gksu qtconfig I
get an error message :
GConf-WARNING **: Client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon:

Other programs like Synaptic and GParted and gksu
work fine. Might be QT related as the Juffed text
editor doesn't pick up QT settings.

This is on Stretch with OpenBox. I usually have to
hunt down a library or 2 withOpenBox but this one is still hiding. Any help appreciated.

Is that a fatal warning? I might connect later in the execution. You might try installing the appropriate qt-dev package(s).

Yes, the program stalls and will not work, can close the tab however.
Finally got gksu -user to work but in Jessie just plain gksu works
fine, so I don't think using that option is 100% fixed. Some
little thing somewhere is missing, but ???
