Why Unetbootin doesn't ask me for sudo password?

In Ubuntu if you execute a program that needs elevated privileges a dialogue will pop up asking you to enter password for sudo. In Fedora when I tried to run e.g. Unetbootin it instead greeted me with a'la error message advising what to issue in terminal to make it run as sudo.

How can I make programs behave like in Ubuntu in this regard? Does this answer address the issue?
IIRC it was Fedora 18 beta.

Unetbootin needs administratives privileges, It is a long-standing problem and need sudo, if you want run Unetbootin.

From a terminal

run it:


sudo unetbootin

If you wat enable sudo try PostInstallerF Easylife Fedora Utils or Autoten

Enabling sudo must already be on the forum, if not, surely on google. It's too common a task to not be already discussed :)
