Yup.. I sometimes wish the whole gnome environment had a quick switch to
root..  Like run with 'safety off' for a while for as long as you need
it.  This because using the GUI for basic file operations such as
copying web files into the www folder, or installing a font, or any
other minor administrative task doesn't work. 

This means I find myself in a text console way more often than I like.
It feels like going back to a Windows 3.1 era, when I also always had a
command line open.  Since Windows 95 (And Apple long before that) I
hardly ever needed the command line anymore.) 

So.. A sudo-feature for Gnome would be nice.. Does that exist?
