I need to change one line in the splunk.postinst file, but am unable to gain root access to it and root is the current owner. Any help would be most appreciated.

try in a terminal (Applications >> Accessories >> Terminal):

gksu gedit /path/to/splunk.postinst

Thanks!! That worked. Is there a place I can get the list of commands and what they are for?
