I got it done last night, I didn't know about kdesudo but I used "Run Command" 
and ran kate as root.  I read over your previous instructions several times 
and ended up with exactly the above line!  Actually, I stuck the UUID line 
which was there in a comment so I could go back if it didn't work.

Did that and and it showed up in "System settings" "Disk&File systems" as 
enabled.  Thank you Derek for all your help.
