Justification: renders package unusable
After the last update, today the 1st of june 2013,
kdesu stopped beeing available. Digging a bit, a realized that the executable
binary is not in the PATH anymore, but in /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kdesu instead,
so I tried :
- dpkgreconfigure, and then choosed NOT to replace kdesu with kdesudo.
It did not change anything.
- update-alternatives, but none was found.
- create a symlink to the kdesu executable, but it simply does not say
/ return anything, and does not work.
I really dislike that a user beeing able to change his/her own password be
allowed to execute privileged commands using that same password (because a
shell could have been obtained via a security flaw), so I avoid using
[kde]sudo. This is why I miss kdesu a lot !
Am I missunderstanding something or do we have a bug here ?
Have a nice day !
