Description:

Gtksu - what is it?

Simple its a simple replacement for gksu/ktsuss etc that allows you to run a program with different privileges ( root etc ).

Although there are other programs of theis type most if not all rely on polkit or have a large number of dependencies, apps like ktsuss which this app was inspired by ( available here:http://ktsuss.googlecode.com/files/ktsuss-2.tar.gz ), some like ktsuss seem to have been abandoned ( last commit was 2011 ).

Also it seems that whenever polkit ( which is a nightmare! ) is updated these programs break, so this is the result there are few dependencies a reasonable recent gtk and glib and that's it.

!!! NEW !!!

Can now be built with a Qt5 qui instead of Gtk, just use the --enable-qt5 switch to configure.

See the INSTALL file for details on how to install Qt5.

!!!NEW!!!
Installation

Just run ./configure OR ./autogen.sh from this folder then make and sudo make install.
To install to ( say ) /usr instead of the default /usr/local, add --prefix=/usr, --enable-ktsuss-link will as it says link ktsuss to gtksu so that some programs that hard code the files think that ktsuss is being used ( spacefm ).

Usage:

gtksu [OPTION] [--]
Run a command as another user
-u, --user USER Runs the command as the given user
-m, --message MESG Change default message in ktsuss window

Simple usage:
gtksu terminal.

If you need to add options use -- like so:
gtksu -u root -- terminal --hold -x ls -AF /

This programme has the potential to hose your system if used unwisely, BE WARNED!
May present a security risk so use at your own risk.

Please see the README/INSTALL files for my email to let me know about any bugs problems etc.

Hey

Since I already have ktsuss installed, should I configure gtjsu with --enable-ktsuss-link?

No! it would replace the ktsuss app with a link, it just pretends to be ktsuss, if you don't want to install ktsuss or polkit breaks it again THEN use the --enable-ktsuss-link you can of course have both programs installed with no problems.
