Copying issues with Dolphin


I became root in Konsole and started Dolphin in gui,
and copied /yum.repos.d (owner root:root) to my usb-memory,
but the owner changed to normal user name. I wanted to copy
CentOS-Base.repo to another computer but that failed caused
of wrong user and I could not change the user to root on the
other computer. What am I missing here?

After some googling I found the answer to this issue.
Gui is not done for work in su mode. Do this:

kdesu kwrite
open your file to edit
and save it
