Sparky SU

This tool provides Yad based front-end for su/sudo (spsu/spsudo) allowing users to give a password and run graphical commands as root/sudo without needing to invoke su/sudo in a terminal emulator.

It can be used as a Gksu replacement to run any application as root/sudo.


 sudo apt install sparky-su



 spsu command

To run a terminal based application using spsu, run:

 spsu "x-terminal-emulator -e command"



 spsudo command

 spsudo "x-terminal-emulator -e command"
