 Run as su?

su -> switch user?

Does it let you change user, then should it be "run as other user"? If only root, then "run as root"?

Otherwise, sounds handy. I prefer to just open a terminal for stuff that requires me to type su first though I think. I feel insecure about letting the GUI have root access..

I guess that I have always thought in my head that 'su' stood for super user. I know that it can be used for any user, but that is almost always how I use it. Maybe I should switch it to say Administrator or Root instead os SU

Yeah true, could be interpreted as superuser. I just thought of su the commandline thingy.. Hmm. :-)

The open link has a reference to "/opt/kde3/bin/konqueror". Why? Just using "konqueror" works. Not all distros have konqueror installed in the same place, so an absolute path is a bad idea.

Woops, you are correct. I have been using this for a long time and I just decided to post it today. I'll fix that up and put out a new release.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
