This worked.  Thanks for the tip.  I'm glad I asked.  I was about to
hand edit things.  This is much nicer.

For the record, it was in System-> Preferences->System->Authorizations.

For the KDE users out there, the application is called
polkit-gnome-authorization.  It might be possible to run it from the
command line.  I am not aware of a similar application in KDE.
