In attempting to follow your instruction, I made the following command 
entries.  Obviously I used the correct one last, but when I try, I get this 
same result, which discourages using it often.  Usually when it comes to this 
point, I start over using sudo instead of kdesudo which did not work when I 
first tried this time.  Notice that the work ends where it talks about the use 
of additional space.  When I come to a similar place using sudo, there is a 
question whether the computer should continue after giving notice of how much 
space will be used.  What do I do at this point in kdesudo?  I will post my 
shell data.  You might skip to the end of it, if you prefer not to read it 
all, that is where I am stumped at what to do next.
