Sudo error: ___ owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0

Postby Tony G on Sat Apr 05, 2008 4:10 pm

For starters, I am CRAZY about Mint KDE CE. I got exposed to KDE while playing with PCLOS, but aside from the desktop environment, most everything else about PCLOS, though decent, made me miss my Mint (still safely installed on another partition). So, I replaced PCLOS with Mint KDE, and couldn't be more pleased.

One error, though an Ubuntu rather than a Mint error, is that when I edit a file as sudo (or open an application as sudo), the terminal reports the error ___ owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0 several times, with a line for each of three files (which I represent just with "___"). This is a known Ubuntu bug. Unfortunately, when I tried the suggested fix (installing kdesudo), a slightly less annoying bug replaced it: Now, kdesudo reports "kdecore (KProcess): WARNING: _attachPty() 11." While this bug is also known, there's no suggested fix.

I'm not so much asking for a fix (though I certainly wouldn't turn my nose up at one), but simply reporting my experience, so that other Mint KDE users know it's not just them.

Best regards,

Anthony

installing kdesudo

Eh?
It's there by default
Unfortunately KDE and/or Kubuntu has some errors with uid - one of them affecting USB hard disks

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Husse,

Shows what I know, although Synaptic didn't show kdesudo as installed, and let me check and install it (not trying to be cantankerous--just reporting on it). The files I'm getting the errors on, though, are on my laptop's sole internal hard drive.

Kdesudo is not there by default (unless an upgrade borked it)...not on my installation anyway. Takes 10 secs on dialup to download though!
I had a hassle making a Superuser file manager 'til I realised this.

This is my eyes..
I read kdesu, kdesudo is not there by default. Don't really know the difference, probably not of importance anyway :)
