 Ok this is what I have done, I've added an item to the menu to call 
serviceconfig. Tick the run as a different user and enter root, save and run 
it from the menu it will ask for your password enter it, works for me. It 
doesn't require the root password because of ubuntus sudo setup. I have 
enabled root as a user though, there are times when putting all that sudo 
this and sudo that stuff gets on my wick.
