The commend in a menu item or in a Desktop file uses a su wrapper other than su-to-root.

On Debian systems, please use su-to-root -X. That will pick the best wrapper depending on which software is installed and which desktop environment is being used.

Using su-to-root is especially important for Live CD systems. They need to use sudo rather than su. The su-to-root command can be configured to invoke only sudo.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit fac7222. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check menu-format.
