GKSUDO huh?!??

Postby MPaul » Mon May 06, 2013 5:35 pm

I've gone to Ubuntu 13.04. It's nice. However, restoring previous software did not let me do an upgrade, but I did a fresh install.

So, I have purchased modules with things like .bib or .dic, and then, everything changed to .run; so Mike told me to make it easy by using GKSUDO, to just move the old stuff right into BA. That was nice, because it was easy, but apparently, someone at Ubuntu read that thread; so for 13.04, they got rid of GKSUDO.

So Mike, now can you tell me what to do? You know I depend on you.

From looking at their documentation (I do not use Ubuntu at this time anymore, but a Debian derivative), they have chosen not to install gksudo by default, but it is still available.

To install, type:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install gksu


This should install and make available gksudo. If for some reason gksudo does not work, try just gksu (which is what gksudo was a soft link to).
God bless

Yep, that works. I had read that this could still be installed, but the page I looked at set out the terminal command incorrectly.

Thank you!
