Description Thomaz de Oliveira dos Reis 2005-11-23 01:07:30 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
Installed from:    Unspecified

Instead of only showing the message "You don't have permission to ..." when trying to read and/or write where you don't have permission (this would apply with kate and others kde tools) It could be REALLY interesting and USEFULL, if you're prompted a LOGIN box, where you could enter the user (and his password) that HAS the authorithy to do that change.

This would really be awesome, since will be really easy for a newbie edit your configuration files while he is logged in as normal user.

I would also like this feature!!! It would save me quite a lot of time!

I miss this feature on KGet, since on Gentoo, you have to fetch some sources manually, because of the license of it, like Java, and put it on /usr/portage/distfiles, and I'd like to be able to download it from KGet right on the target directory, instead of on my home and then logging as root and moving. And I won't open my browser as root for obvious reasons...
