Re: .desktop and permissions for using usb?

Hi, I'm not sure this is the answer you are looking for, but, _if_ you require "root" permissions for your application to work, one of the possible was would be to use one of the existing wrappers to start your application from the .desktop file. I'm not sure which one is used by Fedora, but I was a bit fond of 'xdg-su' in another distribution I regularly use. To use with xdg-su (a part of xdg-utils ??) would be something like (in the desktop file): Exec: xdg-su -c "/usr/bin/app" This would ask the user for root password when launching the application. Though I suspect you are looking for something else.
