Description of problem:Hello whitout sudo package, Veracrypt does not work properly, and when editing a disk, and after filling in the password area a "sudo" elevation error appears.
After installing the package sudo, and adding the user in wheel group, Veracrypt running smoothly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install Veracrypt, mount a disk, after the password, the error message appear.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.mount a disk
3.typing the password
Thank you for reporting this.
Certainly veracrypt does not currently require sudo. Looks like a packaging issue.
Assigning to its registered maintainer neoclust.
Why adding the user in the wheel group?

> Why adding the user in the wheel group?
I am at the origin of this package under Mageia. Nicolas had the kindness to integrate it to the distribution.
However, Veracrypt has always needed either an entry in the sudoers file (which I believe is deprecated?), So the way around was to register the user in the group wheel.
I admit to doing it more by reflex / habit.
So you can test upcoming veracrypt-1.23-1.1.mga7 in Core/Updates_testing!
Make sure veracrypt and sudo are uninstalled and see when you install this new update if it pulls "sudo" and also if a note is showed to tell users to add themselves to the wheel group on new installs.
Thank you very much for your investment in distribution, as well as to all other contributors.
I try this tonight as soon as I have access to my machine.

After testing under a virtual machine created for the occasion, the notification to add to the user group appears correctly.
After restarting the Veracrypt system works perfectly.
However, is it possible to change the text of the notification, indicating that a restart / disconnection re-connection, will be necessary to take into account the addition of the user in the group Wheel?
because a new user, when first using Veracrypt before rebooting, may end up in front of this message without knowing what to do.
Simple assumption, otherwise the package no longer requires the installation of sudo.
Thank you all again for your availability.
hmmm! adding my user to the wheel group switched my polkit password from the root one to the user's one, so this is not a good fix for veracrypt!
I understand that leaving the keys of the house can cause problems.
What workaround to use in this case?
I believe the sudoers file is no longer using?
Can you ask upstream, please? to see what they think about

Sorry our messages are crossed.
I did not see this thread, so I created a new one.
