More Info:

 I’m working on kicker & kdesktop, to run a
program from the KMenu as other user in an easy &
friendly way.In order to run a program as another
user you just have to click with the right button
of your mouse on each application item of the
Menu. After clicking “run as other user”, from
the service menu, it calls
popupExecuteCommand(QString command,bool
runAsOther). In this way, the kicker calls
popupexecutecommand(”command”,true), and the
kdesktop will show the dialog “minicli” with
the voice “Run as other User” checked and
visible.That’s all! =)Note: I’ve added a new
DCop call “popupExecuteCommand(QString
command,bool runAsOther)”to the kdesktop!

The patch contains also a Bug Fix:
