Everyone likes bashing Vista UAC, but I always thought it was a step in the right direction...
Anyways, I am a newbie as far as Ubuntu goes, but am fairly comfortable with the unix command line. When using the GUI tools I keep running into permission issues all the time. For example, I need to create a folder in /media/ to mount a drive - and I just can't figure out how to do this from within the File Browser. It just has Create Folder grayed out.
If I create a folder on the command line using "sudo", I can't delete it afterwards using the File Browser, for the same reason - permission denied. I know I need admin rights, but HOW do I get them through the File Browser?
What would be really nice is if Ubuntu was smart enough to prompt me for admin elevation, rather than just completely refuse to let me use the GUI for most admin things.
Am I missing something obvious, or is this a real limitation of Ubuntu? (or its file browser?)
