No Sudo-No kdesu or gksu [solved]

Recommended Posts

I cant find the /etc/sudoers file on Mandriva like the old days & I cant use kdesu or gksu outside of KDE .

When I try to use kdesu to load say Dolphin in ICEWM or WMaker etc ,I get error "kdesu: command not found".

Where can I possibly fix any of these as at least for using Sudo I could have gone to the etc/sudoers file but its not there that I can see .

Thanks AnyOne

Hi, there can be a chance that kdesu or gksu are not installed.

 

I'm not on a Mandriva system right now, but you should be able to do:

 

urpmf --provides gksu
urpmf --provides kdesu

 

from a console as root, and it should tell you which package provides it, then you can install accordingly. I believe I noticed this and installed it separately on my Mandriva 2010 system. Although I don't use KDE, so I never checked that, but theoretically it should be the same.

I actually wrote in my 1st post that kdesu works in KDE ,sO It actually seems that you need gksu for windowManagers like IceWM as kdesu wont work but gksu does.

AnyWay not to worry.
