    Using Nautilus as root when logged in as a user in 10.0


    In previous versions of Mandrake, there was always a file tool (much like Nautilus) that would allow you to do work on your files as the root user. Was this eliminated in 10.0? Maybe because of security? Though I'm the only user of this PC and that's not really a problem.

    I tried to make Nautilus do this by using the "run as another user" option but it wouldn't allow it.

    I beleve that in Mandrake 10 you can become a su then run a file manager called midnight commander.

    Running Nautilus as root while logged on as user

    I don't know about Mandrake 10, but in Mandrake 9.2 I simply open a terminal session (root terminal and type root password or type "su" in a user terminal and the root password) then type "nautilus" at the prompt. This opens Nautilus with root priviledges.
