Kdesu doesn't working

Hi, I updated rc.conf configuration and after reboot can't get kdesu working:

[giuseppe@archtoshiba  ~]$ kdesu dolphin

This happens also with other commands, such as kdesu kate.

What is not working?

Re: Kdesu doesn't working

a similar error was reported here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=101548 and solved by overwriting the .Xauthority in /root with the one in your home. Make a backup first.

Re: Kdesu doesn't working

Sorry, that works only in the current session. If I reboot, it won't work until I'll overwrithe the .Xauthority in /root.

Is there a way to automate this process?
In /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc I read the following:

# Where to store authorization files.
# Default is "/var/run/xauth"
#AuthDir=/tmp

Should I change it with "~/"?

Re: Kdesu doesn't working

I'm not sure since I can't reproduce your issue on my machine. I suggest you give it a try and see for yourself smile
