Bug Description

At http://packages.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/306/builds/55995/testcases/1585/results is required at some point the use of gksudo by the user.

Since gksudo is no longer packed with Xubuntu, all the testcases facing this issue have to be rewritten and gksudo should be replaced by the 'sudo -i' command, or alternatively, an indication alerting the user to the need of having to install the gksudo package to further proceed with the testcase.

I've rolled this back to 'gksudo' in the tracker, because 'sudo -i' isn't supposed to work either.

Presently http://packages.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/306/builds/55995/testcases/1585/results still instructs testers to run sudo -i mousepad at application finder dialog, which doesn't work.

Let's remove references to any gksu/sudo.

Replace it with something like thunar /home
