    Would it be possible to ask for su password by means of a pkexec and the result in a notification and let the then following update process be transparent for the user?
    In other words how to change "gnome-terminal -e 'sh -c "sudo pacman -Syu ; echo Klaar - Toets Enter om te verlaten; read" (Already changed the language ;-)

    Hi,
    I'm not sure to understand what you mean. Can you give me more informations about this request.

    EDIT: I dont know if it is what you talk about. Do you mean when you ask a sudo command for exemple in the terminal.. Instead of asking the password in the terminal, it open an pkexec?

    Thank you

    I'm sorry, I could/should be a lot clearer indeed!;) It's about the Gnome extension "Arch Linux updates indicator" don't know if it's in vanilla Numix.
    Firefox Gnome Integration (in combination with chrome-gnome-shell-git from AUR) still doesn't work so i can't ask the question in the more appropriate platform.
    I will do just that if i get Gnome Integration in Firefox fixed.
    Update: Feature requested @Google Extensions
