[kde-linux] nice

Hope someone can help me.


This is more a linux related question than KDE, but I'm trying this from a
KDE console so maybe this is the right place.


I want a regular user to use the nice command to increase the scheduling for
some programs.


If the user types

            nice -20 command

an error is reported about lack of privileges.


If the user types

            sudo nice -20 command

& assuming I've setup the necessary sudoers file the command runs ok, except
the command is run as user root not the user who typed the command.


How can I assign the relevant privileges or setup Linux in such a way that
regular users can use the nice command to increase the scheduling of program


Thanks in advance for any help
