Doesn't work. Some kind of issue with gnome-python dependency:
$ system-config-lvm
Traceback (most recent call last):

uudruid can you post here exact instructions to exec with policy kit. I try with but doesn't work

The package needs a bit of work to be run from desktop, and since this is a GUI app and it would violate my policy to log in to X as root (or even have a root login at all), some work needs to be done.

I've wrapped it in a shell script that runs it from pkexec and created a policykit file for it and it mostly works. It still complains about DBUS ...

Client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon:
Using X11 for dbus-daemon autolaunch was disabled at compile time, set your DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS instead

I thought pkexec would have taken care of that with DISPLAY, but I can't spend more time on this right now.

The package depends on gksu, but doesn't actually seem to use it?

I can't launch this via the .desktop file, but only from the CLI using sudo.

Couldn't build it.
Sources depend on older type of autotools.

Somewhat updated PKGBUILD:

dlandau commented on 2013-08-09 11:37

As FlorianD wrote. When installing with yaourt, the package didn't work at all, since yaourt removes the $pkgdir after building.

Florian commented on 2013-06-13 15:46

Please don't link to your $pkgdir, but rather the absolute path of the target binary i.e.
ln -fs $pkgdir/usr/... -> ln -fs /usr/...

mrechte commented on 2013-06-05 09:23

Hello. To become compatible with the /usr/sbin removal, please add --sbindir=/usr/bin to the configure option.

The source link is broken:

Could use instead:

Download link didn't work for me, this one did:

phects commented on 2010-10-20 14:41

Thanks for your proposal!

phects commented on 2010-10-01 13:42

Oh, you're right. Added gksu to depends and uploaded 1.1.13-2.

dcelasun commented on 2010-10-01 13:06

Uhm, if you are going to use that patch, you need to add gksu to the deps array.
