Open as Root not available

Postby bkail on Sat Aug 09, 2008 9:55 pm

I am running mint xfce 4. I thought there was an option to open a folder as root - but I don't see that option. Do I need to turn this on somewhere? Or is there an additional package I need to install?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Linux Mint XFCE 4 is Daryna and it doesn't have that option.
Linux Mint XFCE 5 is Elyssa and it does have this option.

If you want to add it you need to add a custom action.
Basic:
Name: Open Folder as root
Command: gksu Thunar %F

Appearance Conditions:
File pattern: *
Appears if selection contains:
Check only Directories

I didn't post any upgrade info.
All my packages for XFCE CE isn't in the repo yet.
I will give them to clem after the final.
