    Nice and brief article. I like that. FYI “gksu nautilus” or “gksu thunar” (i personally like thunar), is generally a better commmand than “sudo nautilus” especially if you make a launcher or shortcut. “sudo nautilus” tends to cause errors for some reason. Never really looked into why…….

      You’re right, gksudo nautilus or gksu nautilus is good for opening graphical applications in root mode. Thanks :)

    sudo nautilus! Wow, don’t think it should have been so hard to google and find this, but I’m glad I finally did! Thanks!

    Just an example where you NEED root login:
    To move a server to VMWare ESX, you have to create an image of a running machine.
    To do that, VMware wizard need to ave a genuine root privilege access, not a “sudo”.
    Sometimes there is a reason to to something….. sometime is just for fun.
    In any case… is a nice article
