http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi, I'm new openSUSE and while I'm trying to figure out how things work there is one thing that I couldn't find an answer to about kdesu command. For instance, if I changed folders to /etc/X11 and I want to edit xorg.conf I need to run the following command: Code: kdesu kwrite /etc/X11/xorg.conf while I'd expect to run the following: Code: kdesu kwrite xorg.conf but without the full path it opens an xorg.conf file in a folder somewhere in my home folder (but not directly under /home/user/). I assume this is normal, but is there a way around it? If I want to edit several files under the same folder I'd rather not have to type out the full path to the each of the files. Thanks in advance.
