When I try to launch KDE Partition Manager a KDE su dialogue pops up prompting me for root's password:
The action you requested needs root priviliges. Please enter root's passoword below or click Ignore to continue with your current privileges.
Command: KDE_FULL_SESSION=true XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/usr/1000
DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=unix:path=/run/user/1000/bus /usr/bin/partitionmanager --dontsu
When I enter my user password, the dialogue box reappears with:
Possibly incorrect password, please try again.
On some systems, you need to be in a special group (often: wheel) to use this program.
I've checked that my user is a part of the
wheel group. And for terminal commands requiring admin privileges
sudo + [myuserpassword] works as expected.
How can I launch KDE Partition Manager with admin privileges?
I'm running the KDE spin of Fedora 28. I created a user but have no root password set.
