Default Bug in SystemSettings Samba KDE Squeeze?

By default the Samba section of SystemSettings for KDE in Squeeze is
greyed out.

SystemSettings => Advanced => Samba

Shouldn't this module load with ksu, prompt for root password when loaded?
As a workaround I created Menu entry (using MenuEditor) called SAMBA
Config in the System Category, set it to call "kcmshell4 kcmsambaconf"
with Launchfeedback enabled, run as root.

Squeeze was installed using "expert desktop=kde" and "allow login as
root" was selected".

Has anyone using sudo (disallow login as root) tried the default setup
of the Samba module in SytemSettings and found it to work?

Did I maybe miss a setting a Policy?

Cheers.

It's not only Samba Config.
You also have start systemsetting as root if you want to config the
LoginManager (I don't know if this is the correct name for it, in
German it's called "Anmeldungsmanager").

I use "su-to-root -X -c systemsettings"

I think this section should also ask for root

Same question for me

Aah - I'd "assumed" it was greyed out due to Themes being in use, I'd
been just editing kdmrc by hand (doh!)
Thanks for pointing that out. I can't see to find a way to call the
Login module of SystemSettings on it's own, so running systemsettings as
root seems to be the only way to use the gui.
NOTE: I try and keep users away from admin functions - and when
necessary, at least limit the settings they have access to. And many of
the login settings I *don't* want them having access to!

I'll do a bit more research before logging a bug report - see if I can't
find a solution first.

Cheers

This is a known issue in KDE 4.4.5. The set something as root
functionality is not implemented.

KDE 4.6 uses PolicyKit for the login manager settings dialog. This has the
advantage of not having to run the complete KCM with root rights - with
all the implications like populating a ~/.kde directory in /root, but to
ask for admin priveliges only when saving the configuration.

Samba settings do not seem to be ported to PolicyKit in KDE 4.6 yet. I.e.
still greyed out.

Thank you. In that case I'm reluctant to report it as a bug. It's not
broken, just not implemented yet. :-)

Much nicer to have those things set in a central place than having a
collection of inelegant hacks.

I shall have to read-up on PolicyKit when I can find the time.

Cheers

This maens: Waiting for backport or a stable Wheezy.

It's not a problem, I needed it only once for changing KDM.

Well, you have to run systemsettings via kdesudo (if you are using
sudo) to do anything (add a printer, set the clock and so on) ... For
inexperienced users is this a big problem as the workaround is not
easy to find.
