Bug#560152: galternatives: please allow sudo alternatives

Package: galternatives
Version: 0.13.4
Severity: wishlist


When starting galternatives from my Xfce4 menu, I get a complain that gksu is missing, thus preventing running as root.

I use ktsuss for such things, because it’s lightweight and integrates with the menu. (I don’t know if this is thanks to the .desktop file or the old Debian menu file.) Could galternatives use ktsuss, either itself or using the menu mecanism?

Kind regards
