Package: adept-updater
Version: 2.1.3+b1
Severity: wishlist
Usertag: su-to-root kdesu-su-to-root

Hello maintainer,

While searching for desktop files on my system using kdesu instead of 
su-to-root I've found adept-updater containing one.

It would be nice if you patched the .desktop files so they use su-to-root 
instead.
Why? 
Quoting Daniel Baumann from #453931:
"0. Desktop Integration

It doesn't make sense that e.g. a KDE application calls (hardcoded)
kdesu when beeing used on a Gnome environment. It should use su-to-root,
which will automatically call either gksu (default) or kdesu (when
beeing launched under KDE) for better integration into the running
desktop environment.

1. Live Integration

On Debian Live systems, we can not use su, but sudo (avoid setting a
root password for security and usability reasons). If all desktop
entries and menu files would use su-to-root, we can overwrite the
default usage of su on one central place (/etc/su-to-rootrc resp.
 ~/.su-to-rootrc) and be done with it.

Currently, an application on a live system which requires root rights
but calls kdesu or gsku instead of su-to-root uses therefore su, which
won't work, and thus, the user ends up with a non-working application."

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Raphael Geissert
