how to get kdesu in squeeze


it seems that kdesu either isn't installed or isn't enable in squeeze, or something. Anyone know how to get it working?

when trying to launch dolphin:
Code:
lain@debian:~$ kdesu dolphin
bash: kdesu: command not found
Code:
root@debian:/home/lain# apt-get install kdesu
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package kdesu is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source

E: Package 'kdesu' has no installation candidate
Using squeeze 64 amd64, with KDE. Not sure what else would be relevant to post here. Any help would be appreciated. I just need to launch the nvidia settings gui as root, if someone has another way of doing it that'd be great too

The only package I find in synaptic is "kdesudo".

There's also the gksu package which contains both gksu and gksudo which do about the same thing as kdesu.

Squeeze went end of life in February 2016.

Teso, is it Squeeze that you're running? If not, you should have started a new thread as this is about kdesu/kdesudo in Squeeze.
