Solved: How do I open Nautilus as sudo

Postby big_dog1968 on Sun Mar 02, 2008 7:50 pm

I looked all over Nautilus's menus for a way to switch. I tried typing sudo nautilus in the text editor.
When I was running the KDE version of Daryna, it had Krusader set up to automatically launch with root privilages. Is this possible with the gnome version?

"sudo nautilus" in terminal should do the trick unless I'm mistaken.

Hmmm, you could add a shortcut to the panel, right click - add to panel - custom application launcher. Put whatever you want for name, for command put "gksudo nautilus" and hit OK. You still need to give your password every time. Alternatively you could always just log in as root user :lol: . people generally advice against that, be careful when modifying files as root either way

F2 then "gksu nautilus"

Don't login as Root, that's a disaster waiting to happen.
