gParted refuses to launch on openSUSE 12.3/ GNOME 3.6

When i try to launch “gParted” from Activities it refuses to launch saying that passcode is wrong.
But i can launch it from terminal as shown below.
gnomesu and xdg-su work. But the pkexec used in Activities doesn’t validate properly.
Anyone else seeing similar issue ?

dartmouth@linux-8zs1:~> gnomesu /usr/sbin/gparted
======================
libparted : 2.4
======================
dartmouth@linux-8zs1:~> xdg-su -c /usr/sbin/gparted
======================
libparted : 2.4
======================
dartmouth@linux-8zs1:~> pkexec /usr/sbin/gparted %f
Error executing command as another user: Not authorized

Code:

dartmouth@linux-8zs1:~> gnomesu /usr/sbin/gparted

libparted : 2.4

dartmouth@linux-8zs1:~> xdg-su -c /usr/sbin/gparted

libparted : 2.4

Hi
Works for me, both from Activities (%f works here) and terminal…?


pkexec /usr/sbin/gparted %f
======================
libparted : 2.4
======================
Could not stat device %f - No such file or directory.

pkexec /usr/sbin/gparted /dev/sda
======================
libparted : 2.4
======================

When i try from “Activities”, in the validation screen when i am getting a yellowish text in authentication window “sorry that did not works…”:cry:

Hi
That’s an xterm window, not seen here, sure it’s the right password?

No i am not talking about terminal emulator. I should have mentioned “text” instead mentioned “window”.

I am providing the correct passcode and gparted does launch from terminal as demonstrated below
