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. RHFC-10 out of the box on a Dell D600 Dave.
