Another approach is to say that that particular command can be ran by that particular user without prompting for a password:

1-type "visudo"
2-add the following line at the end of the file:
<user>   ALL= NOPASSWD: <command>
3-you may also need to comment line:
Defaults    requiretty

And that's it

Is it possible to pass "sudo" the root-password in some way (I would
prefer plaintext)?

The reason is I use an umts-connection utility which has to run as
root, and I don't want to have my parents type a root-password every
time they connect to our ISP. For now I simply didn't set a
root-password, and choose "run as: root" in KDE, but I really dislike
this solution.

Thank you in advance, Clemens
