sudo graphically?


Is there a way to sudo a command in Konqueror? For example, let's say I try to drag some files from my home directory to a directory that can only been written to by the root...normally I just get permission denied. But...if I was to type "sudo cp _____" then I could do it. Is there a way to do a similar thing without using the console but graphically instead?

If your answer is "why don't you just do it in the console?" then my answer is "because I'm curious if I can use Konqueror to do it

Thanks for any help!

I was hoping there was a way to not have to restart the konqueror session.

Let me explain.
open Kterm or xerm or rxvt.
$ xhost +127.0.0.1
$ su -
# export DISPLAY=127.0.0.1:0.0
#Konqueror &

Now you shold have a KDE filemangler with root prev.

Yeah, I know this exactly what your looking for , but
It come in handy sometimes.

with ssh but I don't the command in from of me?
