Solved, I found out thru gksu --debug that it was trying to authenticate with root... So I just used the root password!
Hi Mint Forum users,
It's a month I'm experiencing this problem.
I use Mint Debian 64bit edition, and when I open a program in the MATE menu requiring root access, after I fill in the form with my password, su-to-root closes when "Giving Rights" (Using italian distro, don't know exact translation)
I'm in the sudo group and I can use sudo and gksu in the terminal, but not directly in a GUI. for example, I can't install a package with GDebi after password prompt.
Contents of my sudoers.tmp (thru visudo):
Code: Select all
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
# Please consider adding local content in /etc/sudoers.d/ instead of
# directly modifying this file.
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.
# Host alias specification
# User alias specification
# Cmnd alias specification
# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
# Allow members of group sudo to execute any command
%sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
# See sudoers(5) for more information on "#include" directives:
gksu worked the first 5 days after I installed LMDE.
I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling sudo, menu and gksu packages.
Thanks for help and have a nice day!
