What happens? Do you see anything at all? Is there any output in
First, thanks for your response.
Nothing happens when I try via alt-F2.  The file ~/.xsession-errors, reads:

gksu: unrecognised option `--no-desktop'
GKsu version 1.9.1

Usage: gksu [-u <user>] [options] <command>
............and it gives the standard help lecture, enlightening me of my choices.
The result of 'apt-file search gksuexec' is simply:

    gksu: usr/share/pixmaps/gksuexec-debian.xpm

Looks like the executable is gone.
Is there a way for me to request that it be put back in?  Who do I write to?
