I worked on this some more and now I get an dialog asking for the root 
password.  But, it doesn't work.  I get this error:

Unable to authenticate/execute the action: 7, DBus Backend error: could 
not contact the helper. Connection error: . Message error: Did not 
receive a reply

Does anyone know what "the helper" is, or point me to the documentation?

Would that be: "kauth_helper_plugin"?  I have a file:


Is that installed in the correct place?  Is there some configuration 
needed for it to be contacted?
