       kdesu_stub - used by KDE su


       !!! kdesu_stub is for KDE internal use only !!!

       KDE  su  executes  kdesu_stub through su or ssh. The stub is running as
       the target user. After some information is sent via  stdin  and  stdout
       the stub executes the target program.
       The  information  passed  over  are  the  X display, a X authentication
       cookie (if available), the PATH and the command to run.

       KDE su uses a stub program because the X cookie is private  information
       and therefore cannot be passed on the command line.



       Full  user  documentation is available through the KDE Help Center. You
       can also enter the URL help:/kdesu/ directly into konqueror or you  can
       run ‘khelpcenter help:/kdesu/’ from the command-line.
