Component: System Tool Version: 9.0-BETA1
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…



  • Go to "Control Panel" -> "Firewall Manager"
  • Type in a wrong root password.

Expected result:

  • Should be prompted to reenter password.

Actual result:

  • A dialog flashes on the screen and I have no idea if the forked application failed or is still loading.

I've failed to reproduce this at 9.0-RELEASE. If I enter an incorrect password for root I get a permission denied error, and I'm prompted to re-enter my password.

Can you please verify this issue still exists in 9.0-RELEASE?

  • Status changed from new to closed

This appears to be a bug/regression in gksu, (KDE uses kdesu, which is why it was not noticed there).
