Seems I did something right, and got blogged about…
A solution for making sudoers work properly in KDE3.5/4 in 11.0
and in this message thread in the ‘help.howto’ forum/group
How to solve kdesu´s prompt for a password in openSUSE 11.0
(no, no link, I’m using a newsreader, so have no idea how to do that from here
This is the text of the post:
Did some research, discovered I have TWO versions of kwriteconfig (and
others!) installed, one for kde3, another for kde4. Â imagine it’s
because I’m running 3.5.9, but with some 4.x apps, so I get both runtimes.
This can cause issues, because the two programs use slightly different
syntax, the KDE4 kwriteconfig app uses single dash ‘-’ for options while the
KDE3 version uses double-dash ‘–’. Â Â grrr!
Better solution is to actually create the file entry that command is
supposed to be doing.
look in .kde/share/config and .kde4/share/config for a file named
If it doesn’t exist, create a new file named ‘kdesurc’.
Add these two lines to the file:
I did both .kde and .kde4 to make sure I catch whichever kdesu is
called (v3 or v4).
This has worked for me, on both 32bit and 64bit systems, opensuse 11.0,
KDE 3.5.9 installs. Â Should also fix KDE4.x systems.
