create a desktop shortcut for root permissions in ubuntu linux so you dont need a terminal and you dont need to be logged in as root all the time. click your desktop icon,type your root password and your good to go.
if you use gksudo -k nautilus it should ask for your password each time.
nice job though if i knew much about linux i prolly would know how to do this but still very helpful for noobs like me
You can use gksu instead of gksudo. gksudo is just a symbolic link to gksu. (Just have a look into /usr/bin ). And you can fix the problem with the missing gtk-theme in nautilus and other programs (for example synaptic) you're running as root quite easily. Just copy the folder of your gtk-theme in ~/.themes to /usr/share/themes. You can do this with your root nautilus.<br /> <br /> greetings, Species ;)<br />
Did it in the time it took for you to do it on the video!<br />
