View Full Version : [ubuntu] root access Plasma desktop

November 17th, 2011, 04:13 PM
Hi all,
I'm new in ubuntu (installed it before 1 week). I've installed Ubuntu 11.10 and then installed Kubuntu Desktop Plasma. When I log with my user and that KDE, and try to apply system updates for example.....the updater tells me that I need an authorization, that happen with all the programs that I start (need authorization, and can't apply anything that i make). My solution to this is to start every program manually from the terminal using the "sudo" command. So my question is: Is there any way when I start any program, when it needs root access, just to ask me for password (like GNOME), or is there a button or a keys shortcut to press an opens a dialog that asks me for root password. Because I do not see any meaning to shortcut icons when I always have to start the applications from the terminal

Thanks in advance,

Maybe this is not the place for posting that question, I've opened another thread is another section.
