Another option is merely to use sudo. That will grant you
root privilege, often without changing your environment in sucha way
as to break your X authentication. It also discourages you from doing
too much as root.
On force of habit, I tend to run commands until I get a
"permission denied", at which point I type "sudo !!" (the double-bang
is expanded by bash to mean "the last complete command-line I typed").
