If i remember right, kdesu is from KDE4, not trinity. Trinity comes with 
kdesudo.

but if it's just wireshark, then you can write a wrapper script, create a 
shortcut which calles the script using a terminal (for the root password), 
something like this:


#!/bin/sh
xhost +localhost
su -c "DISPLAY=:0 wireshark &"
exit
