I want to install gksu on Centos 5.5. su and sudo both work fine (although I had to tweak some BASH profile files to find the commands properly), but I want gksu installed so that I can easily use root privileges for nautilus without having to open a terminal or login as root. I've searched for gksu in the default Centos repositories, but haven't found anything. Is there a gksu package available for Centos? If so, where is it?

That was more work than I was expecting, but it definitely works. – Tyler K. Apr 7 '11 at 19:48
