Description:

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:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/kdesudo/

1. Why not use a better window caption, "KdeSudo"? What is that supposed to mean to a non-techie person? Perhaps something like "Administrator Privileges"

2. Whats the purpose of the ignore button? I assume its to be compatible with kdesu - but why not just disable it by default?

"Ignore" - perhaps means "run without administrative privileges"?

Can you please provide a few informations on that point, as I can't seem to reproduce :
- What is the exact command you typed in ?
- Which distribution and version where you using ?
- Which version of KDE are you using ?
- Can you provide a "strace" of the command please ?

 KDESudo doesn't work

Score 50%

I just tested kdesudo-2.4 and it doesn't crash anymore. But when I wanted to try kdesudo in KDE Control application (kcontrol->System Administration->Login Manager->Administrator Mode) I have got this error:

sudo: DCOPSERVER=local/desktop:/tmp/.
ICE-unix/dcop27078-1203348104: command not found

Do I do something wrong or is still something wrong with kdesudo? With kdesu it works well.

PS: I have renamed kdesu to kdesu.orig and I have made symlink from kdesudo to kdesu.

PS2: You can add this link (http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=210585) for Gentoo users into Download section. You can call it "Gentoo ebuild".

Interesting... Works for me on ubuntu and debian...

It looks like your sudo doesn't accept the "--" tag defining where the command starts...
Can you try the following command in the shell ?
sudo -S -H MYVAR=test -- env

This works for me and I can see MYVAR in the env variables list...
I suspect it won't work for you.

Also, then can you tell me the version of sudo you are using ?

I use 1.6.9p10

Ho and also, can you check if your sudo manpage has that the -- flag described in it ?
If not, I suspect only a sudo upgrade on gentoo will make it to work, and then I should document the minimum sudo version required.

My version of sudo is sudo-1.6.8_p12-r1.

The command what you sent a while ago have finished with this error:

$ sudo -S -H MYVAR=test -- env
sudo: MYVAR=test: command not found

As I have newer version of sudo than you have, my man pages contain "--" option as well:

-- The -- flag indicates that sudo should stop processing command line arguments. It is most useful in conjunction with the -s flag.

Then, this is a bug you should report on gentoo concerning the sudo ebuid...
The man page refers that it is possible to define env vars before the -- flag.
If it doesn't work, this is a sudo bug...
Upgrading to newer sudo will fix the issue !

I have upgraded sudo to version sudo-1.6.9_p12 and I can confirm that "sudo -S -H MYVAR=test -- env" works now well. So you could add restriction for kdesudo to accept just sudo >= 1.6.9_p12?

Then I wanted to test it in KDE Control, but it didn't switch me into Administrator Mode. Maybe still something's wrong with kdesudo?

kcmshell (kdelibs): WARNING: Could not find module 'kdm'.

This bug is due to recent version of kde and ksyscoca...

It happens randomly on some machines, and I didn't found the solution yet... Still investigating on that point...
A few ubuntu users also reported that one, mostly with kde 3.5.8, which I sispect to be the cause of the issue somehow.

This is the same bug sometimes causing kcontrol to be empty on some machines, and is probably due an environement variable missing...

Can you paste me your "sudo -S -H -- env" result please ?

Also, concerning the minimum sudo version required, I really think your previous sudo had a bug in it, and due to the manpage content you reported, I'd say that your version should have worked, despite of the bug... I can't unfortunatelly test all sudo versions to check the minimum required...

The point is that kdesudo uses the root UID to start commands (not the user's profile due to potential profile corruption in gnome and kde config...)

Here is the bug I'm talking about :
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-549115-highlight-.html?sid=dcdcd79a3f014520122e3063497bb920

or simply search for "kcontrol empty" over google, and you'll see that's a very common problem...

For some reason, new users on your machine would get an empty kcontrol list.

I'll investigate to override the issue, but the real cause seems to be kde itself...

 Window Icon

One feature request: kdesudo's dialog should have an icon. I find the question-mark icon really irritating. As if the project is incomplete.

And maybe add some more descriptive text. It seems too little to me. Of course this is just my opinion. I simply wanted you to know these.

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.
