Are confusing the task bar with the launcher?

gksu was not installed on my system.  Fortunately, it was in
my YUM repo.

And, it does force itself into the foreground when prompting
for a password, unlike kdesu, which will hide behind other
windows, forcing me to minimize everything to find it.

Problem solved.  Thank you!


p.s. I do use some KDE apps: K3B, Krusader, Komposer
