[Solved] Fluxbox and gksu

Postby OU812 on Mon Jun 30, 2008 1:14 am

Hello. I am trying to launch apps that require a root password using gksu. Unfortunately I have encountered two problems:

1. gksu is a little slow.
2. If gksu is used to launch more than one app, gksu does not ask for a root password.

I did a lot of research. For the first problem, it was suggested that I edit /etc/gksu.conf with "disable -grab=yes". Unfortunately, this file does not exist. So I did some more research and found that gksu.conf was replaced with gconf and that a migration script is used to migrate the gksu.conf. I have searched a great deal and I can't find a config file for gksu. If I could find one, then maybe I could edit it as needed. Or if I had an old gksu.conf file, then maybe I could install that and let the migration tool do its job. Any ideas? Thanks.

This helps to speed things up a little bit -

Code: Select all
gksu -g command

The -g flag is the "disable-grab" flag; i.e., gksu is launched in window without disabling your keyboard, mouse, etc.
