Either way,

With Trinity expanding onto non debian systems I think its important to help remove some of the Ubuntu "hacks"

That is true for anybody who prefers sudo. If I recall correctly, doing "kdesudo /opt/trinity/bin/kcmshell 'kdm'" and typing your password does the same as using kdesu instead and typing root's password.

Though for some reason, even on Debian, kdesu asks for my password instead of root's. If I try typing root's password, it tells me I gave it the wrong password. It works fine with my normal user password.
