Hi All

I've installed Arkeia smart backup on opensuse 10.2, I run Gnome desktop and
have added the launcher to the menu list ( /usr/bin/arkeiasb ) How do I make
it run as root?

Under KDE you had the option to run as a different user i.e root but that
seems to not be available under Gnome. I tried su - /usr/bin/arkeiasb but
that failed to work, I can start the GUI as a normal user but I need to run
as root.
