FS#1573 - spacefm possible security error

No root settings found in /etc/spacefm/ Setting a root editor in Preferences should remove this warning on startup. Otherwise commands run as root may present a security risk.

I am not sure how much of a risk this is, I will set it at high for now, but feel free to change it to low if its not a huge issue.

Additional comments about closing:  

Application-settings have to be done from the user and cannot be done otherwise

Thanks for the report. Please add more information about the needed outcome from your point of view.

After a research: This cannot be changed in any way from packaging. The user has to do it as spacefm is creating a configuration for corresponding users. See here:

Issue won't fix and is therefore closed. If you have another proposal, please open another one for adding. Thanks!
