We might not be able to get rid of
kdesudo. We may not be able to replace it with
/home/user/.Xauthority file does not exist (happened to be in a Qubes Debian DispVM)
gksudo aborts with an error message.
Failed to run kwrite as user root.
Unable to copy the user’s Xauthorization file.
Error copying ‘/home/user/.Xauthority’ to ‘/tmp/libgksu-HPjE7g’: No such file or directory
It has an ugly first time popup as well. (Not a blocker.)
Granted permissions without asking for password
The ‘kate’ program was started with the privileges of the root user without the need to ask for a password, due to your system’s authentication mechanism setup.
It is possible that you are being allowed to run specific programs as user root without the need for a password, or that the password is cached.
This is not a problem report; it’s simply a notification to make sure you are aware of this.
[ ] Do not display this message again
I couldn’t figure out yet where the setting is stored after checking that box.
