Package: kdesudo
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
if you try to restore the default kdesu behaviour (that is ask for root
password not the sudoer password) by running the command dpkg-reconfigure
kdesudo and aswering "No", then nothing happens unless your current locale is
english (or "C").
The workaround I found is to prepend LC_ALL="C" to the command 'dpkg-
reconfigure kdesudo'
In fact, the kdesudo.postinst dpkg script greps for the "by kdesu" string which
is output by dpkg-divert *only* in english locales.
To reproduce the issue on a debian(wheezy)/kde(4.8.4) system (you must also
have kdesudo installed of course):
1) install a non english locale by running 'dpkg-reconfigure locales',
selecting for example 'it_IT.UTF8', and set it as default locale
2) logout and login
3) execute 'dpkg-reconfigure kdesudo' in konsole and *change* your selection to
'No' (you may have to select the other way before so that it changes)
4) No any dpkg-divert message is output, while in english locale you would get:
Removing 'diversion of /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kdesu to
/usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kdesu.kde by kdesudo'
Removing 'diversion of /usr/share/man/man1/kdesu.1.gz to
/usr/share/man/man1/kdesu.kde.1.gz by kdesudo'
No effect, either, so you're stuck to kdesudo mode.

Best regards
