Run launchers as admin ?

Post by Sydney »

LMDE2 MATE desktop launchers had a right-click option "open as administrator" that appears to not exist in LMDE3 Cinnamon ?
Would anybody know how to run a launcher as admin ?
I can't just add a "sudo" as I don't get prompted for a password.
Ex.: drop cache commands sync; echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches or sync && sudo sysctl vm.drop_caches=3; or killall commands sudo killall whateverprogram as desktop launchers.
Thank you.

LMDE 3 uses polkit. Which programs specifically are you needing to run as root?

Thanks for replying, I'd need the above commands, for starters.
