@denilsonsa I've seen the setuid PR and will implement the needed changes when that gets merged by upstream. On Arch Linux /usr/sbin is a symlink to /usr/bin. What would be gained by installing ste under /usr/sbin exactly? As to your general view on setuid as dangerous, I suggest taking that up with upstream. We can always take extra measures if the upstream code is sub-optimal but that's getting ahead of ourselves.

Given ste binary requires root permission, do you think it would be worth installing it in /usr/sbin/ instead of /usr/bin/ ?

Might be worth waiting for PR #15, because that also includes the option of installing as setuid instead. But, frankly, installing as setuid is dangerous, as it would allow any user to run any arbitrary command as root, unless the necessary precautions are taken in the code.
