Here comes libadwaita! Read about our plans to make GNOME apps and GTK 4 even better, and about the future of libhandy:

Let's keep the #GNOME40 celebration going with a brand new release video!

Need to work with #root privileges for a short time in #GNOME?

Don't try to somehow mangle around security systems that prevent you from starting a file manager or gedit as root!

Instead just use the "admin://" "protocol"!
E.g. in the file manger (#nautilus) , press Ctrl+L and enter "admin:///root/" to go to the /root dir. You'll need to enter your root password, of course, in a graphical splash screen.
Same goes with editing files with gedit then.
