I suggest using pc-su instead of sudo.
pc-su use qsudo
It is advisable to adjust Desktop entries as under
Other entries need minor adjustments on same lines.
From CLI everything works as expected.
Ideally I will prefer pc-su.
Works always good, the best is this one, native PC-BSD pc-su solution
The following works well as per FreeBSD instructions
uxterm -e su -m root -c EasyPBI
The last option is to use as GNU/Linux Ubuntu solution
Thank you for your time and consideration.
