    Question Dolphin File Manager - Super User - Open text in....

    OS: openSuSe 12.1
    Environment: Gnome 3

    In super user mode for Nautilus and Krusader I'm able to open text files in super user mode. I like Dolphin's column view and it would be nice if this app had the same feature as mention or is there a setting somewhere to enable this?

    Nautilus has extra pane view from the menu 'View' > extra pane

    Oh yes, I was aware of the extra pane, but what I like about Dolphin is when your in Column View Mode and as you keep opening folders it creates the extra column for it which is very nice and convenient. You don't have to click the "Go Up to Parent", you just use the Column it created to return to whatever level. If you have it installed give it a try....

    Cool! Would you know if this is something on their TODO list before I go request it?

    There is a substitute.
    While in dolphin, right click the file and click open with, click other
    and type
    Code:
    kdesu 'application you want to open the file'

    If you knew that KDE had plans on adding the feature of opening text files in Super User Mode while in the same Mode just like "Krusader", if not, I was going to go to there site and requested it...

    As an alternative to running any file manager as a root user, if you just want to edit a system file, you have a couple of bash scripts that can do that for you. Have a look at these two:

    fewrup - File Editor With Root or User Permissions - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

    AND

    SYSEdit - System File Editor - Version 1.00 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

    Check them out, you might like it.

    Thank You,
