Installation of Kleansweep on Ubuntu (Gnome) fails to install kdesu

Bug #73859 reported by Matthew Steeples on 2006-11-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
kleansweep (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: kleansweep

Discovered on Edgy Eft (6.10)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On a working Gnome Edgy installation, install Kleansweep through apt/synaptic/add & remove
2. Go to click on Kleansweep after installation in "System Tools"

1. Dialog pops up saying "Could not launch menu item", "Failed to execute child process "kdesu" (No such file or directory)"

Expected Result:
Kleansweep to run (after prompting for password)

Other Notes:
I tried manually installing kdesu, and apt came back with the following:
Package kdesu is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package kdesu has no installation candidate

Would it be possible to either install kdesu, or link gksudo to kdesu while running under Gnome? (Some form of environment variable etc)

This is fixed for gutsy, kdesu is a symlink to kdesudo

Just uploaded the package with stefan's debdiff, just changing the deps from kdesudo to kdesudo|kdesu.
It'll go in when the beta freeze ends.
