I used to be able to... only noticeable difference between now and
previously, is that from the SuSE Menu I can actually lauch YaST, i.e.
the Gnome Destop/Window Manager is loading YaST via gnomesu...
previously when I was able to launch Kate via a root launched instance
of knonqueror, I would have to open YaST via kdesu /sbin/yast2.

I frequently have to edit files that are root privileged only and so
locating and launching kate via konqueror is quite effcient (I have to
enter the root password in order to launch these apps).

Incidentally, I was able to locate kate, /opt/kde3/bin/kate, and was
able to create (copy over) a kate.desktop entry so that it now appears
in (Gnome) SuSE Menu :: Utilities :: Editor list...

I even tried to create a symlink, but I got a message probably related
to what you mentioned... I think what you said is understandable, but
its just that I'm so used to of been able to doing it that way...
