I use to have a setup that i could edit and save a file using (Kate text editor) that needed sudo privilage. On save it will show a dialog asking me for my password. This was really handy. But it is not working anymore. Now i get an error that the document could not be saved.
The goal for me is that i can double click on any text file that opens with Kate. And when i save it, it will prompt a password dialog when needed.
Does anybody has an idea how to get the dialog back that is asking for my password?
I'm using Kubuntu 16.04. My Kate version is: 16.04.3
$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS Release: 16.04 Codename: xenial
This happend when i was trying to save .bashrc in my home folder.
drwxr-xr-x 137 billy billy 36864 Oct 16 13:43 . drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Feb 17 2018 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9907 Sep 24 21:28 .bashrc
But it seems to happen with all files that i need sudo for.
Kind regards, Billy
