Modifying restricted folders without terminal

Not to be obnoxious but you're looking for sudo <file_manager> not <window_manager>. IE: sudo thunar as opposed to sudo xfce.

Running your window manager again while already running it in an X session will just error out.

Good question Nick. I am also looking for this info.

Willettwork,

The solution for this is already set out above.

Is there something specific you're having a problem with? You may want to start a new thread if so.

Thanks,

My point was that you answered a question I had. I will use that info the next time I have to move files to the /html folder. Thank you for the info.

Willettwork,

My apologies, I read your post an entirely different way.

I'm glad you found the info useful!
