2008-07-02 02:01:38 Robert Xu description Binary package hint: gksu First, I try starting Synaptic, and nothing happens. I try with the command "sudo synaptic" and everything is working! I figured it must be gksu, so I type in a terminal "gksu". That works, so I try going to Add/Remove Programs, selecting the ones I need, then Hitting Install Updates. The gksu dialog doesn't come up, and my Add/Remove Programs freezes. So then I try the GDebi Package Installer. I take Wine 1.0-rc3 and try to install it, but at the part where it's supposed to give me the gksu dialog, the dialog never comes up, and i'm left with a broken gksu. I've had to run so many sudos from the command line and I would like gksu fixed... For information on what versions I used: I used Ubuntu Hardy, gksu 2.0.0-5ubuntu3. Maybe I should downgrade to gksu 2.0.0-5ubuntu2... Binary package hint: gksu First, I try starting Synaptic, and nothing happens. I try with the command "sudo synaptic" and everything is working!
