libgnomesu

Build Status

libgnomesu is a library for providing superuser privileges to GNOME applications. It supports sudo, consolehelper, PAM and su.

libgnomesu will use one the following services (in order of priority), depending on which one is available:

  • consolehelper
  • PAM
  • su

libgnomesu will use the su-based backend as final fallback, if no other services are available. This service uses a backend which is a modified version of GNU su.

libgnomesu comes with the GUI frontend 'gnomesu'.

You can find API documentation in the folder 'doc'.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
