Hi Lisi!

It works here on R14.0.1 and tdesu is installed by tdebase-trinity-bin so I assume it's installed on your computer. But if /opt/trinity/bin is not in your path that command will fail more or less silently. Could you please open konsole, there enter:

	/opt/trinity/bin/tdesu /opt/trinity/bin/kwrite 

and post the output from the console? BTY, on my computer it takes about 15 seconds for kwrite to open.

Nik
