    Actually, the ctrl+alt+t key combination will open a terminal window. Then you can "sudo su" or "sudo [command]" or "gksu" from there. No need to go to console.

    I believe you have misinterpreted what I misspoke about.

    The idea was to open a single command line to execute one command. I rarely use the GUI to open the "Run Application" dialog box and by habit I used the combination to open a terminal. The console was not even in the conversation except for my misspeaking. The OP got the drift anyway.
