Really, it's at proof-of-concept stage. I've not yet figured out how to get PAM to approve things, nor whether polkit can do any user other that self or root, nor what are the needed changes to the context after approval is gained. Su(1) might be a template for the latter. There's a commandline option -u, as previously posted. There will be actions to replicate the effects of commands su, sudo. Ignore pkexec altogether. Build with WITH_SU=1, optionally also WITH_POLKIT=1 Regards Tom -- Users can unsubscribe from the list by sending email to emelfm2-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the subject field or by logging into the web interface.
