Sparky SU 0.1.0

There is a new, small tool available for Sparkers: Sparky SU.

This tool provides Yad based front-end for su (spsu) allowing users to give a password and run graphical commands as root without needing to invoke su in a terminal emulator.

It can be used as a Gksu replacement to run any application as root.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install sparky-su

spsu command
To run a terminal based application using spsu, run:
spsu "x-terminal-emulator -e command"

APTus 0.3.14

There is an update of Sparky APTus 0.3.14 available in our repository.

1. removed “–yes” option of the apt command from installation of Debian, Liquorix amd Sparky kernels:
– it displays amount of all packages to be downloaded and needs your confirmation now
2. re-written ‘old-kernel-remover’ script (honestly written a brand new):
– uses Yad now instead of Zenity
– shows all jobs in a terminal emulator window
– lets you autoremove after
– removes an old initrd.img of a just removed kernel
– displays info window when finshed

Heavy tested already, but let me know if you find something wrong, please.
