linssid packaging for xubuntu menu not functionnal

Bug #1774872 reported by Robert on 2018-06-03
This bug affects 2 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linssid (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Linssid is installed normally (software center or apt
- with a terminal it is running with the simple command sudo linssid
- the GUI menu of xubuntu 18.04 does not call the application
   (the same menu in 16.04 does call the application)
In other words it is not a bug within linssid, it is a packaging error for the gui menu (Xubuntu)
I assume this is in relation with changes in authorization, policy ...between 16.04 and 18.04

This is not important...

It's not Xubuntu only related, I get it on Ubuntu Mate. Linssid installs properly, but when I click it's icon in menu (Programs->Internet->LinSSID) nothing happens. Normally it should ask for admin password. I can launch it from console by using: sudo linssid.
