Esudo is not working as expected with other DE's. When the esudo dialog box appears only the 'Cancel' and 'OK' buttons work but text fields do not become active when clicked (i.e, I cant enter any text). Also note that there are no errors shown. Also if possible please provide solution to remove esudo without breaking the install (I hate that black box, gksu looks better :) )

 

NOTE: This only happens for few DE's [like Openbox, xmonad, lubuntu netbook (tested until now)] but works fine with KDE, Enlightement (tested until now)

A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

This is a bug with the upstream Elementary toolkit that Esudo is built using and openbox based desktops. There was a fix commit upstream, but I've not had time to test that it works properly in Bodhi / with Moksha yet.

 

Hoping to get around to it in the next couple of weeks. Not a high priority since we do not provide support for other desktops on Bodhi.

Then at least please provide an alternate solution (like replacing esudo with gksu). Im asking this because I cant remove esudo without breaking moksha

The solution is to not use esudo in Openbox based desktops.

 

A true fix will happen when time permits. Sorry - just not a high priority like I said.
