I've tested this and it appears to work, although the first time I somehow managed to crash the dcop server. I've tried both administrator mode in Control Center and the kuser user setup application. My proposal would be to: 1) add the kdesudo to the Key packages in kde-desktop task 2) add a hook script in pre-pkgsel.d that does: if db_get passwd/root-login && ["$RET" = false ] && \ db_get tasksel/desktop && [ "$RET" = kde ]; then echo "kdesudo kdesudo/kdesu boolean true" | \ LANG=C chroot /target debconf-set-selections fi This means kdesudo already has the correct debconf setting before it gets installed by tasksel and the diversions get added automatically on installation. Alternatively we could do 2) + an apt-install in a finish-install.d hook script and then only if the desktop task was actually selected, but that would mean having to ensure that kdesudo gets included on images by debian-cd.
