Gufw fails to control ufw

Asked by dr0bz on 2016-10-15

ufw is 0.35 gufw is 16.04.1

As title says it is not possible to control the active status of ufw through gufw. The ufw rules are also not shown, which i definitly have:

❯ sudo ufw status verbose
WARN: Doppeltes Profil 'Apache', zuletzt gefundenes wird verwendet
WARN: Doppeltes Profil 'Apache Secure', zuletzt gefundenes wird verwendet
WARN: Doppeltes Profil 'Apache Full', zuletzt gefundenes wird verwendet
Status: Aktiv
Protokollierung: off
Voreinstellung: reject (eingehend), allow (abgehend), disabled (gesendet)
Neue Profile: skip

Zu Aktion Von
-- ------ ---
Anywhere on vboxnet0 ALLOW IN Anywhere
Anywhere on vboxnet3 ALLOW IN Anywhere
Anywhere on vboxnet1 ALLOW IN Anywhere

start gufw, enter root passwort to authenticate. Enable the firewall. Exit gufw.
sudo ufw status
Status: Inaktiv

start gufw, enter root passwort, status is disabled.
If i enable the ufw with sudo ufw enable - starting gufw shows the status as disabled. I already tried to purge both ufw and gufw.

Could you start gufw from shell as normal user? Just:
$ gufw
And paste here the log.
Thanks in advance!
