I have my root password, and just installed a keylogger for myself and after losing a long chunk of text i worked really hard on to a program crash. The keylogger installed just fine, using my root password in the terminal worked fine to, set the output file and started it. Now how do i look at the output file? Under permissions, it say's that only root can read/write. How do i log in as root?
I wouldn't start a file browser instance with gksu to open a file. I would use:
Or any other text editor it's easy to copy paste multi-page text from for that matter.
Enable open as administrator in nautilus!
To get started, press Ctrl – Alt – T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the commands below:
enter code here
After installing that application run copy and paste the line below and press enter.
Finally, log out and back in then go and test it, by clicking your right mouse click on the file you want to run as Admin and your see a popup menu with the words: open as administrater.
