    Restricting access to root only

    Is there a simple way to restrict access to a application to root user only? I want access to KOrganizer to be available via nonroot user but require the root password.

    what pbharris said except if this is in the GUI, change the icon to be :

    For in KDE:
    kdesu /usr/bin/KOrganizer

    For in GNOME:
    gksu /usr/bin/KOrganizer

    Login as root to modify the menu or have the user create an icon on the desktop with the appropriate command from above.
