gksu utility does not work in PureOS, in either default (wayland) or xorg session.
Steps to reproduce
- sudo apt install gksu
- gksu gedit
Gedit is started in root mode.
In wayland session: white prompt on black screen will ask for password, but the input is not accepted—when Cancel button is clicked, one can see their password typed in terminal
In Xorg session: white prompt will ask for password, character feedback is okay, but when clicked on OK button error reported is that the password is not correct.
