No gksu for Bionic?

Asked by Brian on 2018-04-22

Is there no gksu option for Bionic, 18.04? I have the package installed, but it indicates it is obsolete/local and offers no options for Bionic.

So the reason it is removed is because of a 7 year old bug? Maybe I misunderstand, I have no clue what "RoM; RoQA" means.

Thank you to both of you though, I appreciate the answers, I just did not have enough knowledge to get what I needed from the first reply, although I can see now it is a correct answer.
