KDE Kppp Dialer

I'm having trouble with internet dialer when logged on as another user. When logged on as root it runs just fine. Basically I want to allow other users to use internet dialer. If logged on as other than root it asks for roots password.

Change the permissions or setup sudo to allow other users access.

For more details view the man pages:

man chmod
man chown
man chgrp
man sudo

Try this:
1.login as root
2.type: rm /usr/bin/kppp
3.type: chmod u+s /usr/sbin/kppp
4.type: ln -s /usr/sbin/kppp /usr/bin/kppp
That's what I did to get it working for all users on RH 7.3.I think if you configure your modem and network stuff during install and it asks for ISP info,RH is setting up kinternet for you and it should be accessible to all users.So you can try the above or try kinternet.
