Thread: OpenSUSE 11.4 will not let me edit 50-blacklist.conf !

  1. #1

    Exclamation OpenSUSE 11.4 will not let me edit 50-blacklist.conf !

    I need to add the following line in /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf ..

    Code:
    blacklist acer-wmi
    in order to get wlan working, but I cannot seem to edit the file .

    I tried:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf
    and got:

    Code:
    (gedit:30088): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
    I also tried manually opening the file but it is read-only . (I did not set my root folder to read-only, however .)
    I even wrote a script in /home/exo/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts that should let me open files as root, but nothing works ..

    This is my script:

    Code:
    for uri in $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS; do
    gnomesu gnome-open "$uri" &
    done
    *Please note that I am brand-new to OpenSUSE but am an intermediate Debian user .

    Use 'gnomesu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf' instead.

    And exomordare it seems you managed to miss the huge banner at the top of this forum saying Please don't ask product questions here.
