I think sudo mintupdate is probably sufficient to launch the update manager.

I want to add the update manager to the fluxbox menu

He wants to make a shortcut to that I guess, and not by the terminal way.

That's true. You can't use sudo in menu options. gksudo can be used instead, but the preferred way to do so is:
Code: Select all
su-to-root -X -c mintupdate

This command works for me. No need to type the whole path.

Menus also accept terminal commands, but don't open a terminal to run them - sudo requires you to type the password in the terminal.
