Just an initial thought as it's working in the cli so I assume all
configured okay.

I sometimes making sure bash is the shell an not the default sh can help
fix some glitches.

System.Shell = System.Find("bash")

Also I wrote a simple gambas called groot that I've found works where
pkexec does not. It simply creates a hidden window with a terminalview and
launches the application via sudo.
It's on the gambas application repository
Might give you some alternative ideas at least?
