Sometimes when I’m more lazy than usual and I browse my folders with Nautilus, I want to open the file I need to straight away without using the command line.
Installing a single nautilus extension, called “nautilus-gksu”, adds the “Open as administrator” functionality to the “right-click button menu”.
For installing it run the command:
sudo apt-get install nautilus-gksu

Do you people have a facebook fan page? I looked for one on twitter but could not discover one, I would really like to become a fan!
No Facebook but there is a Twitter page.
You can find the link at the top of the sidebar.
Great information! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. Thanks!
