No tdesu.  But tdesudo and gksu are both there. So I installed gksu.  

But it didn't work.  I.e., <gksu kwrite. in the launcher produced a request 
for the root password - but entering the root password had no effect.  
Nothing at all happened, and a check with ps showed that nothing had been 
launched.  I tried all three of the programs I normally want to use this way, 
and nada. :-(

So I purged gksu.

17 packets installed, one was removed.  So now |I have 16 orphaned packages to 
remove. :-(  Wne I have looked it up.
