Description Jakub 'Livio' Rusinek 2007-05-21 07:36:36 EDT
Console helper, when asks for password doesn't make background grayscale and
it's window like any other - with border. This is bad behavior.

We could use also gksu instead.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2007-05-21 07:44:43 EDT
How is it bad behavior? Note that gksu has some seriously awful code in it - see
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 20:48:50 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
Comment 4 Jon Stanley 2008-04-05 12:21:06 EDT
Umm, some comments Jakub?  Bill has already said that he's unlikely to switch,
and has requested information on how this is bad behavior.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-05 13:25:01 EDT
A switch to gksu seems exceedingly unlikely, now that we have PolicyKit.
Comment 6 Jakub 'Livio' Rusinek 2008-04-05 15:17:53 EDT
I have idea. This bug seems inactual, however if I "move" bug upstream, to
PolicyKit, it might be available for all.

system-config tools will use PolicyKit?

Comment 8 Jakub 'Livio' Rusinek 2008-04-07 12:19:04 EDT
Why? Isn't it good idea to keep whole desktop consistent?
Comment 9 Jesse Keating 2008-04-07 12:25:21 EDT

> Why? Isn't it good idea to keep whole desktop consistent?

Because it takes time to port apps.  Things can't be done instantly.
