Ubuntu :: Gksu Nautilus - WARNING: No Marshaller For Signature Of Signal 'UploadFinished'

I get the following each time using "terminal":

tourdog@PJK3:~$ gksu nautilus Initializing nautilus-gdu extension

** (nautilus:2347): WARNING **: No marshaller for signature of signal 'UploadFinished'

The "root - File Browser" comes up and it all seems to work but "what's up with the 3 warnings"?

Fedora :: Gksu - GConf Error: Failed To Contact Configuration Server

Apr 3, 2010

Anyone what this gksu error is about (it repeats it three times)

# 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.)

Ubuntu :: Run Gksu Without A Password Possible?

Apr 25, 2010

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:

<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

Ubuntu :: Gksu Not Working In 10.10

Oct 11, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Error In Nautilus Ver 9.10

Aug 19, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Error - Nautilus Cannot Handle FTP Locations

Jun 23, 2011

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?

Ubuntu :: Su And Gksu Don't Accept Password?

Sep 1, 2011

I have this issue on both Ubuntu and Lubuntu 11.04 64-bit on 2 different machines. I have not tested 32-bit.

When I run synaptic or update-manager it presents me with gksu, not gksudo as it previously did in previous Ubuntu releases, no matter how many times I try it will not accept my password.

I have even given it command line arguments to print the password to the terminal and it's correct.

I have found a workaround - by running gksu-properties and changing the mode from su to sudo it will now display gksudo and accept my password.

However, I want to know why it won't accept my sudo password for the su and gksu commands? There are no error messages which are outputted, the gui just says incorrect password.

Ubuntu :: Gksudo And Gksu Stop Working?

Jan 20, 2010

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:

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.

Ubuntu :: Gksu Not Working - Sudo Slow ?

Jun 29, 2010

I've been having a problem with administrative apps all the way from last years' distros, and in 10.04-x64 it's still here.

When i launch an application that needs gksu, it simply hangs waiting for a gksu window that never shows up.

If i launch another administrative app, it hangs as well.

When i look at the process list, i get a lot of gksu instances, all sleeping.

if i kill those processes, the mentioned apps resume with an authentication error

But if i use a terminal and type sudo <app>, it hangs for a few seconds, then prompts for password and it works fine.

I don't know why it works so badly, but it needs to be fixed soon, many new users will surely find this very frustrating.

I run ubuntu 10.04-64bit on a AMD-Athlon-x2

Ubuntu :: Gksu Prompts For Administrative Password

Apr 19, 2011

How to fix the problem that is happening with gksu. It prompts me for the administrative password. I don't (for advised security reasons) have a password associated with the root account.

The sudo works fine and accepts my sudo password. Gksu fails with "incorect password... try again." error.

This is a new install of the Ubuntu Server 10.10 x64 Maverick edition.

Ubuntu :: Gksudo/gksu Silently Refuses To Do Anything

Jun 2, 2011

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.

Running Ubuntu 10.10.

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.

Ubuntu Security :: GKSU Terminates After 1 Incorrect Password Attempt

Nov 19, 2010

Just like the title says, if I were to try to run anything through gksu and accidentally put in an incorrect password, instead of the gksu window coming up again, it would just terminate.

theyain@theyain-laptop:~$ gksu update-manager
sudo: 3 incorrect password attempts

Whats interesting is that it gives me the sudo error after only one incorrect password attempt.

Debian Configuration :: Gksu/su-to-root To Run In Terminal Possible?

Jan 17, 2011

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?
