comment Accessing files in a directory without x-permission?
@AmeyJah, Actually, I bet you can. Consider what happens when you hard link a file to another directory to which you have permission. Same inode, but you can then read it. In other words, the read permission does not depend upon the system looking up all folders to which the inode might belong and seeing if they've got the x bit. Great answer though. Thanks a lot.

comment Launching text editors with privileges without terminal
Why don't you want to change the permissions of the /var/www directory? Seems a really easy way to solve the problem. It's the least "jumping through hoops" way I can think of

Robert, the article you linked to says to change the text file at /etc/fstab. Did you do that? If so, would you please post the contents of that file so we can help

You can't right now. It's a bug. See here on launchpad.

comment How to install GNOME Shell extensions
Sorry the "stupid" site doesn't work for you. It does work because it works for me. To answer your question though, you just have to download the code. How to get to the code depends on where you're getting it from. Many of the extensions sit on github, so you can google for them. Then download the zip from github, extract it so that your extension is in ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions.
