Question

I followed http://it.toolbox.com/blogs/enlightenment/howto-install-the-moksha-desktop-on-ubuntu-1404-68169 to install Moksha on Ubuntu 14.04. Every thing was fine until the time I uninstalled Moksha. After that I cant run esudo, gksudo, gksu. 

$ gksu
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/gksu", line 5, in <module>
    import esudo.esudo as esudo
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/esudo/esudo.py", line 13, in <module>
    from efl import ecore
ImportError: libecore_file.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The exact same error is shown for all the three commands. Any help would be appreciated :)

Note: This question was already asked in ubuntu forums but the thread was marked solved and there is no proper solution to in the thread.

esudo overwrites gksu if it is installed, it *should* undo what it changes when you remove it, but it appears to not be the case.

Will have to look into it when I get time.

I reinstalled only esudo and unistalled it again in the hope of proper uninstallation. But after that my installation went totally crazy

xyz@xyz:~$ gksu
The program 'gksu' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install gksu
xyz@xyz:~$ sudo apt-get install gksu
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
gksu is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

On one side it is telling gksu is not installed and on the other side it is gksu is already in latest version. Same for gksudo.

I would try to reinstall gksu.

 

This is what you need to do. Remove gksu and reinstall it.
