    Default can't open nautilus as root


    *
    good morning everyone

    i hope that any of you can help mi with this problem

    i've tried to open nautilus as root, so i open terminal and wrote "su",
    then i put my password... but when i wrote "nautilus" the following
    error appears:

    (nautilus:2635): Eel-WARNING **: Error de GConf:
    Fall al contactar con el servidor de configuraciones; algunas de las
    posibles causas son que necesite habilitar TCP/IP en ORBit, o que tiene
    bloqueos de NFS de una cada de sistema. Vea
    http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/(Detalles - 1: Fall al obtener la
    conexin con la sesin: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes
    include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus
    security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the
    network connection was broken.)

    of course i can use terminal to copy and paste files as root, but still
    i hope to find a solution to this

    thx!!

    Ps: sorry about my english, it's not my native language =)*

    I'm just posting from memory, but I seem to remember that nautilus file
    browser must be opened with the command:

    $ nautilus --browser

    So you need to switch to root and then type the command with the
    --browser argument, not just the bare command. Try that.

    Pax Domini

    *nope, i tried it, but i'm still getting the same error :S

    but i found another way to do it, instead of typin "su", type "su -"
    and the password, and then just "nautilus" and it will open

    thx anyway for your help*
