    Press Alt+F2 and type this
    Code:
    gksu gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf
    It will open grub.conf file in Gedit with root privileges.

    Or Try this at command line :
    Code:
    sudo /boot/grub/grub.conf
    Press Ctrl+X, Y and hit Enter key to save file.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Execute this too :
    Code:
    gksu gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf

    sudo: nano: command not found

    for the gksu gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf it says
    sh: /usr/x11r6/bin/xauth: no such file or directory
    sh: gedit: command not found

    It means nano is not pre-installed. Try pico
    Code:
    sudo pico /boot/grub/grub.conf
    In case, pico doesn't work, execute this
    Code:
    sudo vi /boot/grub/grub.conf
    Press i and edit file. Press Esc key and type : (full colon ) and x to save file.
    : x ( without space ).
