At least in KDE, if you right click on the clock there is an option
to "Adjust Date & Time". It then invokes kde su.

Note that this kind of problem arises very often. For example a user starts
a KDE session and wants to configure a printer (which can only be done by
root). Even then it is solved in a similar fashion.
