KdeSudo is a sudo frontend for KDE originaly developed by Robert Gruber, and now maintained by Kubuntu developers.

KDE's normal KdeSu doesn't deal correctly with sudo, and is only capable of authentication.
It doesn't deal with sudo specific features like NOPASSWD and so on.

KdeSudo acts like a wrapper for sudo commands, and therefore, supports all "sudoers" file options.

It is command line compatible with KdeSu, and can replace it simply with linking /usr/bin/kdesu to /usr/bin/kdesudo (KDE3 version) or ${kde4_path}/lib/kde4/libexec/kdesu to ${kde4_path}/bin/kdesudo

This new bugfix release version contains a fix for Debian/Fedora and any other distro that disabled the security extention for X.org.
For this reason kdesudo only worked on Ubuntu at the moment.

Please report bugs to Launchpad:


* Add --desktop cmd line option to manually specify the desktop file used for resolving name and icon

* Fixes LP bug #422919 set bugAddress to lp (suggested by Dario Andres)

* Fixes Debian #525292 for real. Avoids having the token go on clear on the commandline by using QProcess'es with builtin pipe.

KdeSudo 3.4.2
Fixes LP bugs #281877, #258799
Fixes LP bug #285084 (patch by Florian Reinhard)
Fixes Debian #525292 (patch by Didier 'OdyX' Raboud)

KdeSudo 3.4
* Fixes a bug causign the app to randomly hang when a bad password was entered.

KdeSudo 3.3.2
* Added po file for the following locales:
- ar, cs, da, de, el, en_GB, es, et, fa, fi, fr, gl, he, hr, hu, id,
is, it, ja, jv, kk, ko, lt, lv, ms, nb, nl, oc, pl, pt, pt_BR, ro,
ru, sk, sv, tl, tr, uk, zh_CN, zh_TW
- Those do result from an export of Rosetta (Launchpad) and might be
incomplete in some case.
* Reworked the docs, and added manpage in the tarball instead of just
add it through the debian packaging.

KdeSudo 3.3.1
* POT file added for translation

KdeSudo 3.3
* Fixes LP bugs #272427, #268092, #267311, #267501

KdeSudo 3.2
* Merged changes with 2.x branch

KdeSudo 3.1
* Fixed icon/name checking when starting an application by its full
* Fixed icon/name checking when using X-KDE-SubstituteUID
* Deals correctly with antislashed quotes:
- Closes Launchpad #187053

KdeSudo 3.0
* Initial port to kde4

Hi! I compiled it on Fedora 10, with sudoers already configured, but when I want to run apps:

$ kdesudo kate
No protocol specified
kate: cannot connect to X server :0.0

$ kdesudo dolphin
<unknown program name>(16105)/: KUniqueApplication: Cannot find the D-Bus session server
<unknown program name>(16104)/: KUniqueApplication: Pipe closed unexpectedly.

 Not entering PW all the time?

So with this I won't need to enter PW all the time, it will save it?

When I edit root files using my normal user, I use a small root menu to edit files (rename, copy, move, delete, edit, etc.) and it asks for root PW all the time.

With kdesudo it will save the PW and not ask for it?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
