i am fine with sudo but i hate it that the gui cannot do it.<br>
is there anyway to set sudo to the gui.<br>
is ubuntu really want to be easy then it should not force ppl to go go in to the command line <br>
everytime they want to install or write file to disk.<br>
just now i had to change the permissions of a file so azureus can write to it.<br>
i only manged it because i have a book on linux with me else i would not know what to do.<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 6/28/05, <b class="gmail_sendername">Steve Torrefranca</b> <<a href="mailto:email@example.com">
