I'm developing an application that use some services that are restrictred configuration for root. But I need to get root access to modify them.
What should I do ? Use sudo or kdesu ? There is something similar for gnome and others ? I think that something just for kde it's a bad choice.
Try "which sudo" at the command prompt to see if the sudo command is in your PATH variable. For FC2, it is "/usr/bin/sudo
" . If it isn't in your path, you can add it to the path, or type out the entire path to the command when you wish to run it.
