Esudo stoped working

Question

Esudo stopped working here: 

It opens as usual, asks for a password and does nothing when hiting enter.

Gives no error messages and neither finishes the thread in terminal.

 

It used to work on this install and neither settings or packages where changed that could have broke it. 

The password is a generic 123456.

I have already tried "apt-get purge" and reinstall. 

 

And if my memories are correct someone on irc reported the same problem already. 

Now what should i try next?

Forgot to mention: This is a fresh 4.1 64b install without upgrades, only chromium and libreoffice where installed.

Versions should be known, i dont have the computer at hand to look that up atm.

If esudo isn't working on a fresh install your install is likely corrupted. Please check your drive health and reinstall from a confirmed media.

Confirmed, fresh install here too.

ii  esudo          1.39bodhi1   all

ii  efl            201701261.18 amd64

 

Functions over esudo bring up the password dialog, after that something hang, no install, no programs appear.

 

esudo ls = cursor does not return to the console, need CTRL-C to break free

esudo -h = cursor returns but nothing else to see

Wrong or non password results to a 'wrong password' output.

 

This also disables appcenter functionality and same for ubuntu interaction with gdebi. Plain sudo does the job.

esudo has a known issue with some locales. Are you using a non-english locale?

 

And for the record esudo -h is a meaningless command. As is "esudo ls ", esudo is for opening graphical programs, nor running bash or cli commands.

Also confirmed ;)

 

Esudo works well with en_US.UTF-8 but not with de_DE.UTF-8. Okay no problem to workaround that for a while.

 

This is an issue I haven't quite figured out yet, sorta put it on the back burner also as it felt unproductive wasting so much time trying to understand it. One thing I have figured out tho is that is NOT an esudo error as esudo works fine with non english locales and efl 18.4 and e21.5. So it has somehting to do with Moksha as well as e17.7. I have confirmed that it also fails with a 'pure' e17.
