Honestly, gksudo and a number of other little things are the kind of stuff I've really never understood why people use.
Like I said above, I use gksudo to launch gparted and synaptic from my fluxbox keyboard shortcuts. It's just an easy way.

But for editing system text files:

Code: Select all

sudo vi file

When looking at the terminal output during installation of the package,
Which package?
[/code]Building only for 4.13.0-38-generic
Building for architecture amd64[/code]
However, my laptop is running the 64-bit version of LM (Cinnamon) with Linux kernel 4.13.0-38
That what amd64 4.13.etc means.

Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

I use gksudo in my fluxbox menus and key-definitions. This seems to work well as a replacement: Edit: it didn't work right. See correction $ cat bin/Gksudo #!/bin/sh # # Use this when gksu goes away. # # BZZZZT wrong: xfce4-terminal --command="sudo -H $* " --geometry=40x8 # xfce4-terminal --command=...

Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

As for editing system configuration files: aside from pkexec, gvfs now has builtin support for admin:// paths that automatically invoke PolKit as needed. None of the stuff you listed works for me (Xfce Mint18.3). Is it supposed to work now or not? $ gparted-pkexec ... Password: polkit-agent-helper-...

Re: need a equalizer? MUST see, BEST EQ

flemur, I already had the pulseaudio EQ that I could only get using the terminal, then I typed in "pulseEffects" and it showed up on my software manager. Oops, I uninstalled that, but reinstalled it as a test and yup, "pulseEffects" shows up. Here's a page about it: https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017...

go to your software manager and type in "pulseEffects".

Code: Select all

$ apt-cache search pulseEffects

Synaptic hasn't heard of "pulseEffects" either.

Did you mean package libasound2-plugin-equal ?

I started some music by clicking on it to start Rhythmbox but there seemed no way to shut it down until the music was over.
That doesn't sound right.
Do you see a window? And clicking the "X" (close window) button didn't work?
Rt-click the rhythmbox toolbar icon-> close didn't work?

I got annoyed and just went into Windows and format it into ntfs from there.
You can cancel that out by reformatting your windows "C:" partition to ext4, using gparted in linux.

No, just kidding!

Maybe I'm overlooking something obvious.
If you lucky the obvious thing is that the ISOs are too big ( > 1G) to fit on a CD - you need a DVD.
