Gparted root password

Hiya,I"m not that new, however wasn"t sure where to article this. gparted is asking me for an "Administrator" password if I launch it off KMenu, however it says "Password incorrect" as soon as I try and usage my account"s password. If I form "sudo gparted" in a terminal, using the same password, it launches fine. I haven"t adjusted any type of passwords from default after installing Kubuntu 10.1, the only password I"ve developed is the one for my account ("aston"). Does anyone understand what all the default passwords are for kubuntu, or just how to resolve this particular trouble with gparted? I desire to usage its password utility rather than the terminal, bereason it has actually an option to conserve the password, and I"m the only person who uses this computer so there"s no require for me to be motivated.Cheers,Aston

Sounds choose gparted (for some factor ...) desires your root password ("su") rather of your account password ("sudo") - you might attempt to check the menu enattempt and perhaps usage kdesu instead of gksu / gksucarry out. Skipping the password altogether is not possible in an easy method, and in my opinion it makes sense to defend partition accessibility.

Ahh you were best, it was making use of su. I might skip the password if I put it earlier to gksu and and enter the password though, it had actually a tick-box for "remember password". Does anyone recognize what the default su password is for kubuntu? I"m the just perboy that physically has accessibility to this computer system, so the password"s not protecting anypoint.

tbelow is no default root password in *buntu since there is no root password by default.on kubuntu you have to use kdesucarry out rather of gksu once possible. as kdesuexecute will use the qt collection and also gksu requires you to install various other stuff for the gtk dependcies. (however tbelow is no reason other then that to not usage gksu)
