Use gksu instead for graphical applications:

$ gksu gedit <file>

Or install the nautilus admin extension & you will then be able to
right-click the file from nautilus & open as 'adminstrator'.

$ sudo apt-get install nautilus-gksu

The gksu extension for nautilus allows you to open files with
administration privileges using the context menu when browsing your
files with nautilus.
