Bug Description


Since pkexec is slowly but surely replacing sudo/gksu/kdesu it would be a good idea to start shipping a .policy file to let limited users run Bleachbit with root rights.
I've already created this .policy file and you can grab it from here:
The policy file must be installed in /usr/share/polkit-1/actions with your chosen file name.

"I think that root version of bleachbit needs to support pkexec. Otherwise, you get a terminal window with a su request. One must install gksu to get around the problem."
