But he is looking for something to edit text files as root, which is why I posted what I did above. If he follows the instructions, then he should be able to do what it is he wants.
So in essence, copy and paste this into a text file:
Code: Select all
[Desktop Action Editassu]
Name=Edit as Root
Name[it]=Edita come Root
Name[fr]=Editer en tant que Root
Name[es]=Editar como Root
Name[de]=Als root bearbeiten
Exec=kdesu "kwrite" "%U"
And save it in your "$HOME/.kde(4)/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus" folder.
Then when you/he right click the specific file you should have an option to Edit as Root, which will open kwrite.
