Launching KPPP from desktop with root loses dsktop icons and wallpapers...
I placed KDE v3.3.1's KPPP icon on my desktop on my Debian v3.1 box
(Kernel 2.6.8). I also configured it to ask for my root password since it
requires root to use it. Once I successfully connect to my ISP, I notice
my desktop icons and background wallpaper start disappearing to blackness.
If I disconnect my dial-up modem connection, then I get "kdeinit could not
launch 'kdesu'" error. After hitting the button, then my icons and
wallpaper come back. That was odd!
I tried running KPPP in KDE's terminal with su command to run it. I have
none of these problems. Why can't I use the desktop icon shortcut with
"Run as a different user: username -- root" without these problems? Is it
Please note that I am still considered a newbie with Linux world. Thank
you in advance. :)
