Patch to solve the problem described

gsmartcontrol-root does not work on systems where PolKit (pkexec) is used to enter the root password.
Comment 1 Lars Herschke 2021-02-03 20:25:51 UTC
The password can be entered, but the application does not start afterwards.
The following error can be seen when calling from the command line.

Unable to init server: Verbindung mit ist gescheitert: Connection refused
