    Default 11.3 A cut and paste editior I can launch as root from the CLI

    Fresh install of openSUSE 11.3 here and I am used to launching Konqueror as root from the CLI and having a cut and paste editor to use. This doesn't work in KDE 4.4. I can't launch kwrite from the cli as root. What am I supposed to use? I installed midnight commander but it can't cut and paste correctly.

    I am feeling a bit frustrated with KDE 4.4.

    I may be answering my own question apparently KDE 4.X doesn't think root needs a cut and paste editor. Text only editors only allowed.

    If you need root priviledges for GUI editors, then you need to use 'kdesu'. For example:

    Code:
    kdesu kwrite

    Mmmm? I don't think that's true.

    How exactly are you getting "root"? Exact command, please.

    I read your post and answered his question.

    So kdesu is required. I understand that now. This is new information to me.

    su has worked for years and years but I guess it wasn't KDE 4 enought for the KDE developers.

    In my experience "kdesu kwrite" was also REQURED for KDE3.

    I used Kate up until today and it never was required for Kate. It is now however.

    I have a working copy of Firefox now

    I had to bring my whole .mozilla folder over from my /backup
    Slowly adding in the applications I use enough that they were pinned to my old KDE 3.5 panel.

    Dolphin is wonky as heck. This whole "new" desktop is going to take getting adjusted to.

    I guess the news reaches some late

    FWIW:

    kde4 apps won't run with su on suse 11.0 ?

    KDE4 root problems

    Dolphin is wonky as heck. This whole "new" desktop is going to take getting adjusted to.
    Konqueror is a good alternative, and can be set as default file manager if you prefer.

    Happy learning.
