Run GCMD as root not working in Ubuntu Mate 18.04
Submitted by Bill Wood
Recently installed Ubuntu Mate 18.04 and then installed Gnome-Commander from the repos. It is version 1.4.8.
When I open it and select the option to launch it as root, that fails with the error message that one of these is needed: xdg-su, gksu, gnomesu, kdesu, beesu -- but (from what I can find out) NONE of these are supported anymore with Ubuntu 18.04.
Also tried to install gksu -- but that is not in the repos for Ubuntu 18.04.
When it DID work, it launched another instance of GCMD but with a different color scheme.
I can create a desktop launcher to run GCMD as root, but I can find no way to have that use a different color scheme.
