comment Changing file permission in Linux so that only root can see/use it, open dialog box asking for root password when you dont have enough file permission
I guess may be I am not clear, I can do all that doing "sudo nautlius ." which will then open root enabled nautilus window in the current dir and all this can be done from terminal. What I want is lets say I have a file.txt or dir A, and it will have this locked/crossed GUI symbol across the icon, so when I click on that, what now happens is, it pops a dialog box saying it cant be opened because you dont have proper file permissions. Instead of that, I want to enable a new dialog box, which will prompt me to enter password if I dont have enough permission. Hope this is clear.

I dont know what you mean, but I usually open txt files using gedit and normal directories using nautilus, is this what you asked ??
