Fixing non-working Catalyst Control Center administrative part in Kubuntu

Under Linux, the ATI/AMD Catalyst Control Center (CCC) can be opened in 2 different ways: as a simple user or as an administrative user. If you are to modify pretty much any setting, you’ll want to open it as administrative user indeed. The problem is, in Kubuntu, the link to the administrator (sudoer) version of the Control Center is broken: it uses amdxdg-su -c amdcccle, which pops up some odd-looking sudo prompt and then does nothing. The fix is simple: fix the link with a working sudoing thingy, which in KDE would simply be kdesudo. So, you need to fix the link (or create a new one), pointing it to kdesudo amdcccle.

If you don’t know how to do this: just right-click on the start menu icon and select “Edit Applications”. Then browse to “Settings”, and you’ll find current Catalyst links there.
