From my earlier email (slightly edited, to allow for the fact that I now know
that you use some KDE applications but are running Gnome):
Type "gksu kwrite" (without the quotation marks) in the small window that
When asked for password, enter the root password.
When Kwrite opens, load file as you would in a wordprocessor.
Save As to a new name. (e.g. conf.file.old)
Reload file under original name.
Edit. Save. Close Kwrite.
But gedit is a also a graphical editor, so if you have that (and you probably
have since you are running Gnome), you could see how you get on with it -
tho' you would still need to run it as root.
