gksudo nautilus on the terminal, and i receive this message,

The "root - File Browser" comes up and it all seems to work but "what's up with the 3 warnings"?
Anyone what this gksu error is about (it repeats it three times)
gksu-2.0.0-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm # gksu ls
GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See [URL] for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)
I'd like to be able to run gksu (i.e. the default windowed authentication) without a password. I tried to find this on the wiki and here on the forums but wasn't able to find anything. I've allowed 'sudo' to run without a password:
Code: <username> ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL
for my username but this has no effect on 'gksu'. As I am the only user on my machine and I have to enter a password on login
I can enter my password just fine to log into the system, and using sudo from a terminal also works, but "gksu" does not. It tells me my password is incorrect. That means Synaptic doesn't work unless I "sudo synaptic" from the terminal. Anyone else happen to encounter this yet, or is it just me? I started with a clean install of Kubuntu 10.10, which I later installed ubuntu-desktop over and then removed. Would that possibly make a difference here?
I am running Ubuntu 9.10. I am trying to make a folder shareable so a windows XP computer can have both read and write access to the folder. I am using Nautilus to configure access and I get the error:
This is the screen before selecting read/write access Prop1.png
This is the screen after unsuccessfully selecting read/write access. Prop2.png
I have attempted this before using this facility and I do have read access to the folder using the windows computer. But I need read/write access.
I've tried to RTFM and look through the forums. The samba service is running:
At the command line Samba's testparm command kicked out many errors. This is puzzling because I did not edit the smb.conf file, Nautilus did. The parameters that testparm complains about appear to have correct syntax according to the Samba Team Website .
I also went into the Synaptic package manager and tried to re-install Samba with no effect. I would install the 10.04 LTS version but I've heard that has problems too.
Is this a permissions issue? The user I am logged onto has "permission to configure the system" checked under system-->administration-->users and groups.
Last night I used Nautilus to FTP a couple of files to my web-site, it worked fine and I created a bookmark for it. Today, with no changes to my system, it refuses to do it showing the error message in the title of the post. I thought that maybe my bookmark was corrupted so I tried File>Connect to Server using FTP with login. Just after entering my password I get the error message. I'm using Maverick. My Internet connection is working well. What the heck is going on?
I installed Nautilus-actions, in order to set up some right-click scripts. However, when I click on "nautilus actions configurations" from within the system preferences menu, I receive the following error... "Duplicate object id 'label1' on line 1000 (previously on line 940)".
I am running a file server on Jaunty. It was a fresh install about a month ago and I have been having problems ever since. I connect external drives to the machine to do nightly backups. Lately, I have been using GParted (Gnome Partition Editor) to format the drives before using them as backups, as I keep a backup for every day of the week.
After using GParted a couple of times, it will stop working and I can't open it or any other application that needs root privileges. I can't use Gnome to mount drives anymore. I have to open Terminal and use the mount command to mount drives. Trying to start gparted or any other application, including nautilus from the Terminal using gksudo or gksu, I get the following error message:
Code: gksudo nautilus (nautilus:25353): nautilus-extension-gnome-mount-WARNING **: Cannot connect to system bus: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.LimitsExceeded : The maximum number of active connections for UID 0 has been reached (nautilus:25353): nautilus-extension-gnome-mount-WARNING **: Could not initialize hal context
Once the machine is rebooted, everything works fine until I run a few more privileged applications, then the applications stop working again and this whole process starts all over. The only way to fix the problem so far is to reboot the machine, which is completely unacceptable.
This comes at some point after installing GNS3 and Dynamips, which require administrator access as GUI's. Although, the first couple times I tried to run GNS3 as administrator, it worked fine. I do still receive the password prompt, whether running from the command line or the context menu. Note that GNS3 is the first application for which I've needed to run gksudo, so this may have been an issue before the above were installed, although I've always been able to run "Open as Administrator" in Nautilus and "Synaptic Package Manager," which now will not run either.
Added an icon for Xampp via Alacarte(Main Menu) and need something like gksu to make it work. In the past i installed Beesu but in F15 it causes problems during boot and shutdown. Is there any convenient way to install gksu or any other solution to get the graphical starter working?
gksu doesn't come with Fedora 14, but since i'm running on the latest VirtualBox, i need gksu to install the guest additions. anyone know how to install latest gksu or how to workaround this dependency?
I'm using sbopkg-0.35.0 in Slack 13.37, and Ponce's SBo-git current repository (but have the identical problem with the official SBo 1337 repository). I have installed GConf & ORBit2 from /extra & have installed the other dependencies (gnome-keyring, & libgtop) via Ponce's repository. When compiling libgksu, it errors as follows:
I have 13.0_64 installed. Found gksu on slackbuild.org. I downloaded it and followed the links to the dependencies and built and installed each one mentioned. gksu built okay and gave me a package which I installed. If I open the run command and enter "gksu thunar" I get this error
Code: The gksu-run-helper command was not found or is not executable. I'm lost at this point. Forgot to mention that I am running Xfce.
I am using open suse 11.3 (gnome). Have installed gnome commander and it is asking for gksu to be installed to enable root file function. Have searched Webpin and can only find the 11.2 package which will not install in 11.3.
I'm configuring some security and i'd like to run arpon to a specific device everytime wicd connects.So, if Wicd connects to a wireless, i'd launch gksu arpon -d -i eth2 (for example.) But this doesn't work, because it seems that gksu only works for X apps.I found that if i do: gnome-terminal -e 'sudo arpon -d -i eth2' It works, but it leaves me with a terminal window open, and i'd like to be asked for a password gksu style.I've also tried this: gksu -- arpon -d -i eth2which also works, but the program quits right after it's started.Am i missing something here?
Does Fedora 11 gnome have that gksu graphical authentication program which allows a normal user to open tools such as that NTFS Configuration Tool to enable full ntfs write support ? I did try to find it with both yum in a terminal, and the package manager, but is not found.
