** Description changed: Hello, kubuntu 18.04 beta 1 I often use : X-KDE-SubstituteUID=true X-KDE-Username=root in the file ".desktop" for applications who may have root id. Example, luckybackup, system-config-samba.... No bug in a plasma session. With wayland, using the same desktop, the application asked for passwd and then stop. + I understood that is for security reasons. That's means all the + "graphics" applications needing root id are prohibited. + Sorry, english is not my native langage.
