Doesn't work...

Alternatively, you could simply change the permissions of the file. It starts out as owned by user "root" and group "wheel" with a permissions mode of 644 (rw-r--r--). All you need to do is give the group write permission with:

   sudo chmod g+w <path_to>/Localizable.strings

where <path_to> is replaced by the actual path to the file mentioned in the article.

Now simply open the file with the property list editor and save it. No need to change the owner or run the editor as root.

AFAIK all admin users (i.e., ones that can use sudo) are in the "wheel" group.

FYI, only users in the admin group, not the wheel group, can use sudo, but it doesn't matter b/c sysprefs automatically adds admin users to both groups. :)
