OpenSUSE :: 11.3 Cut And Paste Editor - Launch As Root From The CLI?

Aug 14, 2010

Fresh install of openSUSE 11.3 here and I am used to launching Konqueror as root from the CLI and having a cut and paste editor to use. This doesn't work in KDE 4.4. I can't launch kwrite from the cli as root. What am I supposed to use? I installed midnight commander but it can't cut and paste correctly. I am feeling a bit frustrated with KDE 4.4.

OpenSUSE :: Cannot Launch LuckyBackup As Root

Feb 25, 2010

After I installed luckyBackup, two icons were added to the 'More applications' window. The first one launches luckyBackup and works fine. The second one is called 'luckyBackup (super user mode' and is supposed to launch luckyBackup with root privileges. However nothing happens when I click on it. I see that the associated command is 'su-to-root -X -c /usr/bin/luckyBackup'. Typing that command in a shell results in an error as su-to-root does not exist. So... is this syntax ('su-to-root -X -c /usr/bin/luckyBackup') supposed to work, or shall I edit it (how?) in order to be able to launch the application as root?

Software :: Good Hex Editor - Allow To View Contents Directly And Copy And Paste Stuff

Dec 17, 2010

I'm trying to view directly a partition with a damaged filesystem on it (NTFS) and so far the hex editors I tried do not do that. I tried GHex for example and it complained that /dev/sda is not a file. The partition is unmountable as NTFS however since it is damaged so I couldn't mount it first. Are there any hex editors out there that would allow me to view the contents directly and copy and paste stuff in there?

Ubuntu :: How To Launch Text Editor With Small Windows Size?

Apr 20, 2010

I'm looking for a programmable way to open an editor with a small window size. For example 60 columns and 3 lines. So I need an editor that can take its initial window size from command line args or environment variables, or possibly from an initial command that can be given on the command line.I've looked at documentation and experimented with gedit, gvim (and vi & vim), and nano and I don't think any of them can be controlled this way. Vi and its friends have a "window" option and also a "resize" command, both of which are described as setting the number of rows, but they don't change the graphical window size they just change the number of rows displayed in the window.

Ubuntu :: Root Filesystem Full After Performing Cut & Paste In Webmin File Manager

Oct 20, 2010

I am running Ubuntu Linux 10.04.1 on an AMD 64-bit system. The server is primarily used for Windows file sharing via Samba in a small local network. I use webmin and putty to administer the system. I have two 1.4 TB drives for storage and one 500 GB drive with 18 GB mounted for root.I performed a large cut & paste operation (25.8 GB of files) using the File Manager in Webmin to move a certain folder into another folder within /media/Work. The operation failed and I am now getting a "root filesystem full" error, and am stumped.

Fedora :: Adding To A Rep File With An Editor As Root?

Jun 4, 2010

After installing skype from rpm I wanted to add a skype repo for future updates. As root I did 'touch skype.repo' and tried to open by 'kwrite skype.repo' but get the undermentioned error. As a user I can open the empty file with the command 'kwrite skype repo' but cannot save it as I am informed that I only have read access.

Software :: How To Change Default Editor To Use As Root?

Mar 28, 2011

How do I change the EDITOR environment variable so it stays changed? I already put a line


in /etc/environment, and I also tried

sudo update-alternatives --config editor

to no avail; when I do gksu nautilus in Debian and open a config file I get abiword, and when I run the script "open as administrator" in Ubuntu I open Emacs if it is installed (I'd like to learn Emacs but not use it right away for simple editing tasks). How come? How can I make nano stick in all cases? I'll keep looking but have not yet found anything useful.

General :: Launch Root Console With A Profile Loaded ?

Dec 31, 2009

I'm trying to launch a root terminal with a profile preloaded, but I'm not yet used to the way gnome handles its syntax, so the default link to root terminal:


Apparently, the method using gnome-terminal is to add a trailing


But this did not work, probably because in this case I'm not calling directly on gnome's terminal.

Ubuntu Security :: Access To A Virtual File System For The Thermocrom Without Needing To Launch Owfs As Root?

Feb 12, 2011

I have been trying to use my DS2490 USB to serial device with a Maxim .DG1921G thermocron with owfs. It is supposed to give me access to a virtual file system for the thermocrom without needing to launch owfs as root.

/var/log/messages gives:

but if ds2490 module is loaded it works when run sudo.It seems from this that it is a lack of permissions to USB but I have tried all the methods on at etc. to overcome this and a few others but none work.I am running Ubuntu 10.10 kernel 2.6.35-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP

Ubuntu :: Text Editor Column Editor And Regex Search/replace, Incrementing Number Insert?

Jul 25, 2011

On windows I really only used Notepad++ as my text editor, it had two features that I loved.What I need to accomplish is what I would do with Notepad++ column editor.I could have like 100 lines, and place the cursor at a column, and goto edit>column editor, and I could insert an incrementing number. (I could also pad the incrementing number with 0s, this was GREAT for making batch files among other things.)So each line at that column had a number higher than the previous line.The other feature that I used sometimes was a search/replace with regex patterns.Does anyone know of an editor that has those features for linux? I am mostly after the column editor insert feature but if you know of one with both features that would rock.

OpenSUSE :: Mouse Middle Button Paste Is Not Working?

Mar 4, 2010

Suddenly the mouse middle button paste feature does not work in Bluefish and OpenOffice. It is driving me crazy. I have become so used to this feature I am constantly forgetting to ctl c/v to cut and paste.

It works everywhere else. ( For example, I can use it in this text box that I am typing this message in. ) and when I select text in either Bluefish or OpenOffice it shows up in Klipper. Strangely, if I select that text in Klipper I can paste it into either application with the middle button.

This just started a few days ago. I have no idea what changed on my system. It is a KDE4 desktop, if that is relevant.

OpenSUSE :: Mouse Highlight For Copy / Paste Stopped Working

I just noticed that highlighting text and middle button clicking no longer copies and pastes as it has it has been for years. I haven't upgraded anything or installed any new software so this is a bit confusing for me. How I may restore this function? BTW, it doesn't work anywhere, terminal, firefox, etc. For clarity, the mouse itself works, I can point, click, etc... it is just the copy/paste function that has failed -disappeared- Using Suse and KDE desktop
