So, if I run script as root using gksu, can that script run another script as normal user? Thanks!


That is basically what sudo does. You can run a command as another user by typing:

sudo -u [user] <command>


sudo --user=[user] <command>

The sudo command is very flexible, and you can find out the many options you have with it using the man pages or the help option:

sudo --help
man sudo
