#StackBounty: #permissions #password #gksu #policykit #visudo How to see what pkaction a software uses

Bounty: 50

So, I have one software that always asks for password when starting. And I want to run this software without this gksu password prompt popping up everytime.

The first thing I tried was adding its path to sudoers. However, that didn’t work. Later I found out there’s a thing called policykit, and if some program wants to use some of policykit actions, it will always prompts user for password (sudoers have no effect on it).

I followed a guide in How do I prevent PolicyKit from asking for a password?, but it still doesn’t work, so I think I might have added wrong action.

Question: How I can see what pkaction does my program use so I can enter it in my .pkla file?
