  mythtv should not depend on gksu

Status in mythtv package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  gksu has been deprecated and unmaintained for several years. It is
  recommended for app developers to use PolicyKit to run the specific
  actions that need elevated privileges instead of running the entire
  app as root.

  Ubuntu 17.10's default desktop (a themed GNOME on Wayland) does not
  support gksu.

  Therefore, Debian and Ubuntu intend to remove gksu soon. Please modify
  mythtv-frontend and mythtv-backend to not depend on gksu.
