I am trying to set up samba server on my box, and the easiest way seems to be to use the kde4 samba setting dialog. I need to run it as super user though. I tried

su -

but the window doesn't seem to appear on the screen. Any ideas?

try using krunner (alt+f2) and type:

kdesu systemsettings

should work if you know the root password...

Kdesu is not always present, execute: kdesudo systemsettings – user268255 Oct 30 '13 at 20:29
