Panel-Launcher for a Root-Terminal

August 7th, 2009 subogero 4 comments

Another not-so-trivial problem with a beautifully simple solution within half an hour. First I created a panel launcher and started hacking its Command Line.

sudo gnome-terminal

Wrong. Nothing happens.

gnome-terminal -e su

Looks better, a terminal-window appears, but disappears again after entering the password. Should have remembered. If a command is specified, bash does not become interactive, closes when the command is completed.

sudo bash

That’s it, baby!
