|KDESU(1)||KDE User's Manual||KDESU(1)|
NAME¶kdesu - Runs a program with elevated privileges
kdesu [-c command] [-d] [-f file] [-i icon name] [-n] [-p priority] [-r] [-s] [-t] [-u user] [--noignorebutton] [--attach winid]
kdesu [KDE Generic Options] [Qt Generic Options]
DESCRIPTION¶KDE su is a graphical front end for the UNIX® su command for the K Desktop Environment. It allows you to run a program as different user by supplying the password for that user. KDE su is an unprivileged program; it uses the system's su.
KDE su has one additional feature: it can optionally remember passwords for you. If you are using this feature, you only need to enter the password once for each command.
This program is meant to be started from the command line or from .desktop files.
Since kdesu is no longer installed in $(kde4-config --prefix)/bin but in kde4-config --path libexec and therefore not in your Path, you have to use $(kde4-config --path libexec) kdesu to launch kdesu.
file is evaluated like this: if file starts with a /, it is taken as an absolute filename. Otherwise, it is taken as the name of a global KDE configuration file.
-i icon name
More detailed user documentation is available from help:/kdesu (either enter this URL into Konqueror, or run khelpcenter help:/kdesu).
EXAMPLES¶Run kfmclient as user jim, and show the Konqueror icon in the password dialog:
$(kde4-config --path libexec)kdesu -u jim -i konqueror kfmclient
