On Kde Fedora we may write  "kdesu gparted" after pressing ALT+F2, but how to perform the same operation in GNOME Ubuntu?

Press Ctl-Alt-T to open a terminal window and type 'sudo gparted'.  This only works if your user is in the 'sudoers' group.

Last I recall, the Alt-F2 should work as well, and the equivalent "kdesu" command would be "gksudo gparted".

On my Ubuntu 10.04 system, Alt-F2 brings up a "Run Application" window.  Doesn't list Gparted on my system.  I was able to type "gksudo gparted" in the text entry window and have it run after checking my password.

Resume: So , it's not possible. Even Mustdie Operating System has "Run as Administrator".

Okay, seems to me, this possibility appears only when application can be found at search (ALT+F2).
