Where I'm at now, besides removing kdesudo-trinity I have now removed 
sudo-trinity and replaced it with sudo, now everything seems to ask for 
a passwd every time :-) , except for synaptic and it's never asking for 
a passwd anytime anymore, it just opens when ever I click on the icon, I 
played around with gksu for awhile but could not get it to ask for a 
password and start, but I could get it to ask for a passwd and not start 
:-P , the only other gtk package that I have is gdebi and it may also 
not ask for a passwd I won't know until I have something to install.
