Edit as Root

Dolphin Service Menus by gammaknife 44 comments

What's wrong with using the "Run command" KMenu option and doing "kdesu kedit" or "kdesu kedit filename"? It (1) keeps your password safe, as you have to enter the root password, (2) you can just as easily navigate your filesystem with the Open File dialog in whatever editor you care to use, and (3) if you do it once, it saves the command in the drop down menu for ease of use later on. In my case, my "Run command" drop down menu has "kdesu kedit", "kdesu kedit /etc/make.conf", "kdesu kedit /etc/rc.conf", and "kdesu kedit /boot/grub/grub.conf" in it. (I run a Gentoo system, and these are configuration files that I am often editing.) - Apr 18 2004

Wallpaper Other by RaoulDuke 7 comments

Love your wallpaper. I use it for my desktop that runs Gentoo, but I Gimped out the "emerge".

If I might ask, how did you make the Gentoo G? - Jan 17 2004
UI enhancement (KDE 3.1.3)

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by equinoxe 139 comments

Just for grins, I tried to install these patches with KDE 3.1.4 on my Gentoo system. I also have QT 3.2 installed.

kdelibs and kdebase patch fine.
kdelibs compiles okay.
kdebase fails to compile with the following error messages:

I also would love a patch against 3.1.2, instead of the cvs. Thanks. - Jun 21 2003

Sorry to bring up the documentation issue again, but I just downaloaded your package. There appears to be no information in the README file when I untarred the package. All of the installation documents that I could find appear to be generic docs. - May 10 2003
