You are probably better off getting familiar with the command line 
interface, and using a text editor such as nano to edit config files with. 
rather than using a graphical editor.

Permissions are changed and set in the standard Linux way.  If the files 
are owned by another user, such as root, a method to edit them is to use 
sudo before the command eg sudo nano weewx.conf
