Yes, it was working a while ago in squeeze and it's working now in wheezy, which I just upgraded to. In both cases sudo wasn't/isn't installed.

## Running wheezy now
$ uname -a
Linux textbox 2.6.39-2-amd64 #1 SMP Wed Jun 8 11:01:04 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux

$ dpkg --get-selections sudo
No packages found matching sudo.

I see drop-down list, I see konqueror but the "wrench" is still not there for me, even on wheezy. Weird.

I got it partially working so it's no longer critical, though ideally I'd like to find out what happened to my "wrench" in Alt+F2.

Thanks for your help.
