Is there another way to

I might be wrong but, I think you can install gksudo with yast. In case I'm really mistaken, can you check if you have the gnomesu command. If you check its syntax for me I can add its support really quickly.

'gnomesu' istalled doesnt work either. I think most of the openSUSE users are on KDE (as I am) where 'kdesu' works best.

Also what is not working but would make it much easier is if the usbmanager was started with root privileges. Even then the prog looks to become root but I started it under root already.

Thanks for the nice prog anyway. Will become a very easy and comfortable app once its working with KDE root rights.

I'll check the syntax for gnomesu and add its support in the next version of USBManager. Since USBManager was made for Gnome it doesn't support kdesu but I'll take a look on its syntax too and add it.

Sorry for the late response.
