I am using kde 4.4.5. When I try to run an application that needs root, I am asked for root password. In gnome I am asked for my password.
Gnome used gksudo, gksu-properties is configured to use sudo mode. I have no root password (it is not set on this machine).
I am not getting the kdesudo box when launching applications that are marked in menu editor as run as another user, I think there is a problem with the way the KDE desktop environment is setup.
How do I tell the kde menus to use kdesudo?
Have installed kdesudo, but it makes no difference.
I originally installed the default system, without kde. I then added kde. I just added kde-full. (still not working)
I have discovered that some admin applications launch properly, they have as there command
gksudo …. I think this is not perfect as it will cause gtk libraries to load unnecessarily.
