I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 (GNOME) and I'm just copying over certain files from my backup which is on a Windows computer. The backup includes:
- A few scripts in
- A number of websites in
- A couple of startup scripts in
I'm comfortable using the command line, but for this kind of one-off quick copy I'd rather use the GUI. I know I can
gksudo nautilus but this is a bit cumbersome, loses any personal GNOME customisations, and keeps elevated privileges until the process is terminated.
What I'd like is that when I attempt a file copy that currently gives a permissions error, I get an option to temporarily elevate privileges. Can anyone help?
