Activate Gksu Ubuntu 13.04

On the latest Ubuntu, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, gksu is uninstalled, by default.

gksu can be installed on Ubuntu 13.04 easily, by using:

$ sudo apt-get install gksu

To enable it, type:

$ gksu-properties

Because Ubuntu encourages users to use sudo, gksu is disabled by default. It has not been integrated to the latest Gnome, so gksu was dropped on Ubuntu 13.04.

I recommand you not to install gksu, and use sudo or gksudo instead. gksudo is the sudo, for graphical applications. Read this article to find out more.
