Ubuntu – How to add gksudo or what to use instead in Ubuntu 13.04?


I used to use gksudo gedit /etc/something.conf to edit system configuration files but this doesn't seem to work any more. Looks like there is no gksudo in 13.04. How can I add it back or what am I intended to use instead?

Best Answer

Yes, there is NO gksudo available for Ubuntu 13.04. It has been removed. So, you can use 'sudo' instead. Just type: sudo -i gedit /etc/something.conf. You will be asked for your password.

If you are not comfortable with it, use this sudo apt-get install gksu to install gksu, and you can use the gksudo command.
