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.
Up until today I have had about 15 minutes exposure to KDE 4. December is coming soon and openSUSE 11.1 will end of life then. I stayed with KDE 3.5 as long as possible I even changed distros for that as a partial reason. I have a lot of work to do. but I have my basic functionality satisfied. Firefox, Thunderbird, Xchat, (S)mplayer. I can get by. I need to install deluge next

You have to use “su -”. The dash is crucial.

You might check out the new function in dolphin that lets you navigate then open a console with the current directory current in the console. Also the console prompt follows the GUI nav. Very cool. To use it add the Terminal button to the tool bar. Settings-Configure Toolbars. When opened the console is attached but you can detach if you like.
Ok I know you are a reticent 4.x user but really konqueror is so last decade
The deal is twofold. Dolphin opens in a tiny window and trying to move it or make it larger is hit or miss, Dolphin doesn’t seem to like to have two or three separate instances open. Konqueror has none of that problem.
I am old school as in old heheheheh
I have almost what I consider a system I can use for daily use like my 11.1 system running 3.5 was. I am waiting on delivery of a 500 gig drive so I can resync /home/flamebait daily and I’ll almost be almost set.
video file previews are not working yet and I think that is the last thing.
