Re: How to replace gksu in starter for python app

This one finally seems to work:

Code: Select all

env SUDO_ASKPASS="/usr/lib/openssh/gnome-ssh-askpass" sudo /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel.py
Thanks everybody very much for help.

Re: How to replace gksu in starter for python app

I can do

Code: Select all

python /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel.py
The panel then starts, but I can't start the Apache or MariaDB with it .... because they need higher privileges.

There must be a way to start some python app via starter with higher privileges … even without gksu.

Re: How to replace gksu in starter for python app

Doesn't work, sorry.
Changed gksu to pkexec. But on click nothing happens.

I guess the problem is that this controlcenter is a python app that needs to be started as a privileged user.

How to replace gksu in starter for python app

Hello all. I recently upgraded from Mint 18.3 to 19.2. I used to have a starter for XAMPP control panel like so: #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=false Icon[de_DE]=/home/username/icons/logo-small.gif Name[de_DE]=XAMPP Exec=gksu "python /opt/lampp/share/xa...

Re: Dark or Night mode for this forum

Pretty sure night mode in general is what you choose to become vision impaired, not when you already are. :lol: :twisted: Seems you're lucky to not have any problems with your eyesight. I find dark modes very helpful when you have vision problems. I have an overall dark theme for my desktop (vertex...

It is now safe to remove the drive notification

Linux Mint Mate 18.3: When I unplug a usb drive I get a notification "It is now safe to remove the drive". So far so good. I'm on a German system -- the message is in English. And what is worse: it's indicated with a red colour ( I would think red is for danger to tell you not to do things, so blue ...

Re: Trouble installing GIMP 2.10.0 using Flatpak

Maybe Rich's Tutorial here https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-ubunt ... nd-flatpak helps.
Haven't tried that myself yet, but usually his instructions are very good and working.
You'll probably not have to install flatpak itself as it's built in into Mint 18.3 ( but not in Ubuntu, which he uses).

There's a PPA as well:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install my-weather-indicator
Maybe that helps

I use KeePassXC, too and I'm very happy with it.
It integrates well into my dark theme.
