Re: How to 'su' to root from a script using Xdialog?
Your choices are gksu, kdesu, sux, or su -c. To make a dialog you can
just tell it to output "This program requires root permission." and then
run the command.

You could use 'sux', but you need to install that program.
Or you can do this:
/bin/su - $USER -c command
With this you will avoid $DISPLAY problems.
This is what I genrally use, but it requires a terminal to enter the
password. I do not like to use the terminal, but a fd or something
I like to have a Dialog which tell the $USER: "This programm requires
root permission. Please enter the password:"
