Re: How do I edit rc.local?

Ah much superior to. $ which gksu /usr/bin/gksu $ which gksudo /usr/bin/gksudo :D Messing around, yeah seen tons of work arounds people are using and fact of the matter using sudo isn't going to cause issues vast majority of the time and never would with the right options anyway. Still though OP say...

Re: How do I edit rc.local?

Sighs ... just some randomness on this. Really would like to see the Mint team smooth this out in whichever way is best approved. Obviously do think gksu was removed prematurely, that's not my call. Posted this cause trying to do it the "right way". I tried "pkexec caja" in LM 19 (Mate), it said, ne...

Re: How do I edit rc.local?

All this new weirdness is the result of gksu packages being removed from ubuntu repositories, thus it's not readily available in Linux Mint anymore either. So this IMO stupe gvfs admin:/// junk and/or polkit with pkexec nonsense. These are now the way folks are supposed to go about editing files or ...

Re: How do I edit rc.local?

Just as a FYI in this, you also need to enable a service to get rc.local working in systemd and would go ahead and chmod the file after creating it too. So would go ahead and create the thing, here's my file as a working example. #!/bin/sh -e # # rc.local # # This script is executed at the end of ea...

Re: [solved] gksu (gksudo) issues plus other comments

The ... being a drama queen/king thing was more directed at people saying, well ... if you're going to keep using gksu-etc, even though it has a known security issue, why don't you just go ahead and always run your operating system(s) under the root user account !!!! That's ridiculous in my view, sh...

Re: [solved] gksu (gksudo) issues plus other comments

Sheesh drama queen/king much ? :D It's really silly to equate someone electing to use something like gksu/do vs comparing it to running at all times as root, shrugs. Not quite sure how that computes in whoever's brain but if that's their opinion. Personally yeah, will continue using gksu-etc for as ...

Re: Keeping a version of Chrome I like, right or wrong?

^ Nothing wrong with that. Which is really what a majority of this comes down to. It's your system, you're responsible for it and free to do as you please up to whatever x-users skill-set happens to be. I agree with Pjotr, in some of his views on a browser. Still view it as harmless to use any reput...

Re: Keeping a version of Chrome I like, right or wrong?

Putting packages on hold would be one way, see that on the topic. My opinion as to the original question, it's pretty much harmless. Mozilla maintains an archive of every Firefox release since history began, I've many times installed and ran really old versions of it alongside newer just for the sak...

Re: CPU Scaling issue

Reread the post above you, performance handles the cpu freq, you wouldn't need to set anything for it. Also as shown in that post, just cause you're cpu is capable of 3ghz doesn't mean that's how its seen or would be entered in that file. Not relevant to you at the moment, as again ... leave that to...

Re: CPU Scaling issue

So in that /etc/init.d/cpufrequtils file you set the governor to be performance and then the MIN_SPEED as whatever else you set it to ? Once it's set to performance can't see a need for you to define a min_speed, though it is saying the performance governor is handling all of them, it's also showing...

Re: CPU Scaling issue

Strange, what's the output of "cpufreq-info" saying ?

Should tell you the governor set and the current module/driver being used. It'll list out that info for each of the cores. For cores 0-3 on your quad-core proc.

Re: CPU Scaling issue

Using cpufrequtils for dorking with frequency. Someone can set the min freq at /etc/init.d/cpufrequtils and it works, after disabling a service named ondemand.service. Seems this service unit sleeps for 60secs at boot and then does it's thing. At least this is the situation I found in LM 19(MATE), n...

Re: gksu (gksudo) issues plus other comments

As the owner and admin of your own personal systems, it's up to each person how they go about doing whatever. I don't consider reinstalling gksu-etc as much of any security threat. Looks like people upstream just don't want to keep it up and develop it, so it's days are numbered. Not supported in Wa...

Only wanted to pop up with a general tip you will find useful in situations like this in the future. There's a command "locate", it's provided by the mlocate package which is already installed out-of-box on Linux Mint. So open terminal and do something along these lines to try to find a particular f...

Re: Install gksu so gksu and gksudo work again in Mint 19. 64bit.

Anything which involves launching privileged apps without password will definitely be considered bad form. Was just trying to p...

Re: Install gksu so gksu and gksudo work again in Mint 19. 64bit.

On the one hand, hey this junk made me research and learn some stuff. On the other, yep ... this is stupid. Ok great, Polkit ( with properly written .policy files) and using pkexec can, hopefully in some ways, if everything is setup correctly make an app launched with elevated privileges more secure...
