Kate-allowing saved changes


I'm using Kubuntu's advanced text editor, and trying to change a screwed up line on my sources list. I don't know how to log in so I can save the line as I've changed it; could someone help me out? Thanks for your time. Peace!

Try editing the file from the command like with a simple editor such as nano e.g.
Code:
$sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Click on Kmenu -> Run Command and type kdesu kate.

You also can type "sudo kate" in a terminal window. On my machine I get some complaints from the X server but it still works.

thanks

Thanks guys,

I actually ended up doing it a round about way, by copying the source list into my home folder, changing it, and then returning it to the apt folder which gave me the option of overwriting the old version of the file. Thanks though, I'll remember your tips for later.
