Re: [trinity-users] Is sudo-trinity needed?

Really this su/sudo subject needs it's own thread, it's important but 
off-topic of the poll.

Sudo is OK for those who want/need/choose it. However a default to sudo 
is one issue that will surely alienate many Debian users considering 
Trinity, especially if it's a problem to change. This needs to be sorted 
in a way that users can easily choose.

Some here may not remember or not have been around when I raised this 
before. It's in the October archives.

My problem was, no Trinity stuff worked without sudo. Klauncher crashed 
with "normal" kdesu. I couldn't get a root text editor, konq, kcontrol......

Anyway I found my own fix and posted it there. I had to purge kdesudo 
and change the menus. It might not be a clean fix or I might have missed 
something.  I actually don't remember what happened about sudo-trinity, 
I thought it was replaced by Debian's but I now see an rc config is 
still there.

Maybe it was something in sudo-trinity, I never discovered for sure. I 
seemed the only one with that issue.
