I'm not good at the command line (Just past newbie).  I try to edit .conf files to set up samba but the text editor tells me I don't have permission.  All of the system admin functions ask me for authorization and then let me do whatever but not the text editor.  I have added the gdm group to  the directories the gnome docs told me to (/run/gdm).  I have added the gdm group to my user group profile.  How can I get a GUI text editor to let me edit .conf files?
You have to have the correct permissions, usually "root" permission.
Have a look at "sudo" and see if it will help you out.
Thanks up front for any replies.
