file manager - super user mode ??


greetz!

i've installed fedora yesterday, and it`s by far the greatest distro i've tried (suse, mandrake, slack, knoppix).

however, i can't find i feature that i've greatly appreciated in other distros:

file manager - super user mode

is there smthg like that (using gnome)? cause it makes it a lot quicker to copy/move/delete files than doing it in terminal.

thx 4 any help!

super user file manager

I always use Midnight Commander myself ( open a root terminal and type mc assuming that you have it installed - I don't think that its installed by default

You can make konsole run with root priveledges by running it as konsole --type su. You may be running Gnome but you should still be able to run konsole.
