I am new to the KDE desktop and have used GNOME while running .deb distros. There I could change file permissions using Nautilus. I have tried Krusader, but can not get to Root to edit file permissions. I have seen some text versions of how to do this in terminal, but this seems a little complex for the task at hand.
What is the simplest way to change permissions?
So, there is a File Manage Super User in the KDE menu if you look for it. Or, you can just do Alt-F2 and enter kdesu dolphin which will also do what you want. Here is a Quick and Dirty guide to permissions.

How Linux file permissions work
You should start Krusader - root mode (there must be two menu entries for krusader). It should ask you for the root password. Then you can right click on any file, select “properties” and set permissions and ownership. You can also install Gnome and use nautilus under KDE … and last but not least, you can learn how to use chown and chmod in a root terminal, which is still the best method under Linux after all.
For using Krusader in KDE, do an Alt-F2 and enter: ** kdesu kfmclient openProfile filemanagement**
Or, you can just do Alt-F2 and enter kdesu dolphin which will also do what you want.
Thanks - that did the trick!
