Don't EVER suggest doing that.
1) "su" won't work on a default Ubuntu (though Nigel's been around long
enough to know how to make it)
2) GUI apps should never be run via su or sudo - always use kdesudo.
Otherwise GUI apps are likely to have trouble accessing the X display, and
may leave root-owned files lieing around in directories where they'll
prevent future apps from running as a normal user.
