All my bash scripts (which I always gave the permission to be executed) works but without open the Konsole.

So if I made the script:

mkdir t

When I double-click it I find a new directory called "t". And so, all scripts which doesn't contain "sudo".

But If I write

sudo apt-get install vlc -y

#or any othe script with "sudo"

The script doesn't work. It doesn't open a shell to asking me the password for using "sudo". And it doesn't install vlc.

It works only if I execute it using terminal, but I need a script which works when I double-click it.

How can I do?

  • Why would you expect a command to run in the terminal if you don't tell it to? Simply use gksudo. Definitely a dupe of something. – Jacob Vlijm Oct 10 '15 at 20:22

Run the terminal from the script.

xterm -e sudo apt-get install vlc -y

Other terminals might have a different way how to run a command than -e.
