Re: How to change run as root prompt to sudo?

cmost, that is certainly not an option for a multiuser system.
It is if only one user of the multi-user system is the Administrator, which I would certainly recommend be the case. Obviously I'm speaking of a shared home or small business computer not a server in a data center.

Re: Equo crashes spectacularly!

@ steffie

Weird! I am a long-time Firefox user anyway. Guess I should have stuck with what works. Thanks for the help!

Chromium 23.0.1271.64 not displaying images [Solved]

All of a sudden, Chromium 23.0.1271.64 is not displaying images in web sites. For example, news.google.com shows all images blocked. I would attach a screenshot but apparently the board's attachment quota is reached. I disabled Ad-block; tried closing and restarting; tried clearing the cache. All to...

Re: How to change run as root prompt to sudo?

Ah, now I understand. The reason that Rigo (which I don't use btw, I think it's bloody awful; Sulfur was and still is much better) asks for the root (or Administrator) password is because only root can modify the system. While you've given your user account the ability to run root commands by prefac...

Re: How to change run as root prompt to sudo?

Well, first off, you haven't really explained what you want adequately, which might explain the lack of response. Just shooting in the dark, have you tried adding your username to the sudoers file? I like to use sudo myself (because I'm used to it) and all I did was use nano (as root) to edit the su...

Re: ubuntu PPAs compatibility

Ubuntu, like its parent Debian, use DEB packages. These are entirely different than what Sabayon and its parent Gentoo use. For one thing, Gentoo and Debian are like apples and oranges and they are not compatible with each other. In Gentoo, the package manager portage is similar to BSD's ports syste...

Re: How to make KDE look like KDE on Sabayon Distro

If you don't want the transparency, all you need to do is disable compositing. Go to System Settings --> Desktop Effects --> General and then untick the 'Enable desktop effects at startup', or, if you want some effects, go to the 'All Effects' tab and just disable 'Translucency'.
