Slackware64 -current and KDE


I've been using Slackware64 -current for a few days now as my main production machine. Its fast and stable and has given me no known problems as of yet. I have a couple of annoyances though, which just may be my own fault.

I can't find File Manager Superuser - is it gone?

The next thing is that in System Settings, there is no box to start Administrator Mode. I could always start a KDE session as root, but I don't want to do that.

I usually change the default run level to four, and set up my self to login automatically. I do this so that my wife does not have to login and startx to use the computer. It usually runs all the time, but sometimes a power failure or storm comes along that requires a re-boot or shutdown. My wife just wants it to start and run.

The K kicker has no Run option, but Alt + F2 works.

I realize the Slackware Team has nothing to do with KDE itself - I'm just wondering if I'm looking in the wrong places.

opening a filemanager as the root user is never recommended, but...
from a terminal
Code:
kdesu dolphin
you can create a launcher for that

you still have to enter the root password, but I think it's the same in the previous kde administrator mode.

That worked, except that Dolphin was incredibly slow in starting. And, I had forgotten about kdesu. So I tried kdesu kate, and it popped right up. I can edit system files with kate. Now to find out how to get into Admin mode from a normal user to change the login behavior.

My bad; that's for KDE3. KDE4 apparently uses systemsettings. Try:
Code:
kdesu systemsettings
