Tried to run a program from command line needing admin
Input su /usr/sbin/synaptic
Get message Unknown id: /usr/sbin/synaptic
Logged in as root, put in password, ran
and the file ran fine.
Is there no su in Debian? If not what replaces it?
/bin/su is in the login package.
If you want to supply a command to it, rather than run a shell, you need
su -c <command>
su <something> tries to change to user <something> and run a shell (man
su for details).
