@aquina I was just pointing ufw vs firewalld as it is the app (gufw)
that drove me here. I also wanted to point out that by adopting Gnome /
Systemd / Wayland / ... Ubuntu is now dependant and has to keep up with
the new upstream, that tends to be RedHat / Fedora.

  Steps to reproduce:
  1. Install Ubuntu 17.10
  2. Install backintime-qt4 or gparted application from above list (full may be 
acquired from 
https://codesearch.debian.net/search?q=pkexec+filetype%3Adesktop+path%3A*%2Fapplications%2F*&perpkg=1&page=4
 )
  3a. Try to launch backintime-qt4 from shortcut "Back In Time (root)" (located 
in /usr/share/applications/backintime-qt4-root.desktop, it uses pkexec
  ($ cat /usr/share/applications/backintime-qt4-root.desktop | grep Exec
  Exec=pkexec backintime-qt4)
  3b. Try to launch Gparted from shortcut "GParted" (located in 
/usr/share/applications/gparted.desktop, it uses gparted-pkexec)
  4a.1. Back In Time does not start from GUI.
  4a.2. Back In Time shows error message in console:
  4b. gparted-pkexec does not start, reports error
  $ gparted-pkexec
