Re: [K12OSN] Launchers won't run without terminal



Well, Ubuntu and Debian.  I'm also using K12LTSP 5.0EL and I see that it
doesn't have gksudo.  I notice, though, that in the rpmforge repo
there's a 'libgksu' package which says it "provides X authentication
facilities for running programs in an X session'.  It says it handles
both 'su' and 'sudo'.

I haven't tried it, but it might be worth your while.

I have my /etc/sudoers set up to allow teachers to run fl_teachertool without entering a password. sudo /usr/sbin/fl_teachertool works like a charm from the terminal. When I create a launcher to run that command though it does nothing. If I change the launcher to run in a terminal it works perfectly again. Any idea how to make it run without needing to open a terminal?
