Štefan (The Waiter) suggested I have a look at an outstanding issue with esudo and certain passwords. Namely esudo was failing to work correctly with passwords containing certain characters or strings. Today I am announcing a tentative fix for said issue and asking for users who have had this problem in the past to update esudo to this latest version and test esudo with the passwords which previously failed and for other users who wish to do so also update to the latest version and test esudo with various passwords. Testing involves trying to break esudo functionality with passwords using 'odd' characters and/or unexpected html/xml/markup code or anything the user suspects may break esudo.

 

Jeff suggested I add the update esudo deb file to the b4testing repo so users of the testing repo can merely:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

to update to the latest version of esudo.

 

Other users can either add the testing repo and run the above commands or install directly by:

wget http://packages.bodhilinux.com/bodhi/pool/b4testing/e/esudo/esudo_1.39bodhi1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i esudo_1.39bodhi1_all.deb 

Please report password breakage to me or post here. Any other issue can be reported to me personally, here or on github. Thanks to all who participate :D

 

I should also note there have been some code changes to esudo-properties. Test that also if you wish. and Report issues/bugs as above.

I tried it. It works.

 

Because I have this problem separately, I confirmed it with "LANG=C sudo esudo (application)":

This isn't a security update, so I was not intending to add it. The deb file should work in theory though.
