November 21, 2010

Sometimes while using Ubuntu as a user normal user (which is the way you should normally work in Linux, and leave root account for special purposes) you may want to save to a directory where you don’t have permission. To use/login nautilus as super user (root):

  1. Open a console or shell
  2. Write “sudo nautilis”
  3. Enter Super user password
