gedit - button to become root (feature request)
Status in gedit:
Status in gedit package in Ubuntu:
Binary package hint: gedit
it would be a nice feature if one could become root while gedit
already runs. it is annoying to have to exit gedit and start it again
with gksudo gedit.
(i have seen this feature in kde - seems useful.
it just requires an additional menu entry and a dialog with the user to type
in the root password).
