Bug Description

Binary package hint: wifi-radar

I installed wifi-radar and when i tried execute it i had the error:
"Could not launch menu item - Failed to execute child process "su-to-root..."

I tried execute su-to-root on the console and i found that 'menu' pachage is missing.
Maybe menu should be a dependence of wifi-radar.

I can confirm that this is an annoying bug and is still present in the final release of Intrepid. For some reason, the command to launch WiFi Radar has been changed to use su-to-root instead of gksu. As su-to-root is not part of the default installation or the WiFi radar dependencies - the menu command will normally fail.


describes a workaround - but is no excuse for not fixing the bug,

I'm having the same issue in Intrepid. It was working fine in Hardy.
