Hey,

su enter; 
passwd enter; 
and >synaptic-pkexec

I recive the message:

Error getting authority: Error initializing authority: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute program org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: Permission denied

In the Gentoo-forum https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1 … art-0.html i have found the only article about this Problem, but i can't find an error.

Re: Error while system-shutdown su and more.

You shouldn't use su to run the synaptic-pkexec script.

Just run it as your normal user.

EDIT: and use su - instead if you need superuser permissions.

Dammit I said I wouldn't post about that again... mad

To obtain a root shell use su -. Using just su will result in "command not found" messages.

Again?
Lol !!!  8^D

Maybe there should be a STICKY like this, somewhere appropiate:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note:

FOR ALL RELEASES/NEW INSTALLATIONS ------>   ----->   --->  --> -> READ THE %&$#" RELEASE NOTES

Especially the section with the title "Notes on Specific Packages and Issues".

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cheers,

A.
