Library and frontend for running commands as root

libgnomesu is a library for providing superuser privileges to GNOME applications. It supports 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’ and a Nautilus component for Nautilus integration.
