...and be VERY careful when running Nautilus using sudo. You could accidentally delete or change important files or wipe your entire / directory!! So if you do use sudo Nautilus to create a directory in /, close Nautilus immediately to avoid problems. –  PJ Singh Aug 5 '13 at 22:07
    
Yeah, good point. –  Achu Aug 6 '13 at 12:17
