gksu dependency not met for gisomount

gisomount (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The program gisomount requires the gksu package which was apparently dropped as of 18.04.

I ran into an issue with 18.10 where I installed gisomount, but it fails to start due to the lack of gksu package present. The default application launch command is, "gksudo gisomount". The package dependencies need to be fixed and the package installation should be modified to use some other means instead of relying on a dropped package dependency that is unmet.

Modifying the launch command to "gisomount admin://" will not work. There was an error message stating I require root to run gisomount.

Modifying the launch command to "pkexec gisomount" will not work effectively. It worked once after 5 or 6 crashes.

The only reliable way to start gisomount is to use "sudo gisomount" from a terminal.
