Would you like to have direct access to the application menu of Nautilus with root privileges for when you need it so you don’t have to open the terminal and type suo nautilus, or Alt + F2 gksudo nautilus (Exhausting task like few 😛)?
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/Nautilus-root.desktop
Paste the following text into the file
[Desktop Entry] Name=File Browser (Root) Comment=Browse the filesystem with the file manager Exec=gksudo “nautilus –browser %U” Icon=file-manager Terminal=false Type=Application Categories=Application;System;
Once the file is saved you will find the shortcut to Applications> System Tools
You will notice that the text to paste differs in the two sources mentioned, particularly to me it has worked with the text of ghacks, And that’s what I put in this post, so if it doesn’t work with one of them try the other.
I personally prefer the key combinations Alt + F2 and type gksudo nautillus it’s more I think it takes less to do this than to go to the shortcut created, but it’s always good to have variants for all tastes 😉
