Why a program 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? https://ask.fedoraproject.org/question/2573/what-does-it-mean-for-the-root-account-to-be?answer=3988#answer-container-3988
