Question ntfs-config tool will not open and gives an error


When logged in as my standard user in Fedora 11 gnome desktop the installed ntfs-config tool will not open and gives an error which says this; "no authenication program found", and to run that ntfs-config as the root in a terminal. So then the only way to open that tool is to type that in a terminal, and it did open, but how can I fix this ? Can this issue be related to ownership and permissions of it ? Also the num lock does not come on during boot up, is there a easy fix for that too ? This is a recent fresh updated install from the DVD with the ext4 file system.

Question

In the Ubuntu 9.04 this ntfs configuration tool properties shows the command as this right here; gksu ntfs-config , however in the Fedora 11 that shows as; ntfs-config-root also with a directory path in front of that. So some how that tool got installed in FC11 so that only root user can open it, whereas in Ubuntu, I can open it up as a normal user, so how do I fix it? Can that gksu item be installed, and is that a graphical type authentication program which should be part of Fedora gnome ? It has all that ntfs-3g driver and other files installed, and I can mount my NTFS partitions just fine, so maybe I will try re-install of that ntfs-config tool then.
