> You need to open the file as root. open konsole and type sudo kate
kate is a graphical program so you should *always* use kdesu (or kdesudo if
kdesu is broken). It is possible to run into problems later, I have.
You should never use normal sudo to start graphical applications as root. You
should use gksudo (kdesudo on Kubuntu) to run such programs. gksudo sets
HOME=~root, and copies .Xauthority to a tmp directory. This prevents files in
your home directory becoming owned by root. (AFAICT, this is all that's special
about the environment of the started process with gksudo vs. sudo).

life and actually grok it."
