Description:

This is a script to let you easily open nautilus as root.

Readme (also content into the script itself)

---BEFORE USING, OPEN THE FILE WITH A TEXT EDITOR AND MAKE THE FOLLOWING CHANGES!---

1)Insert your root password in the place of ****.

2)If you prefer to make nautilus open in another directory change /home with the directory you want.

3)Put this file into the /bin directory, give execution permisson in the properties,

Then you can type "nautilusroot" in terminal to make nautilus open with root privileges. Suggest you to make a panel shortcut launcher with the command "nautilusroot".

Enjoy!!

Comments are welcome!

Wouldn't it just be better to run

gksudo nautilus

?
That way you don't have your root password stored somewhere, and it will prompt you when you want to do it, i dunno, just my two cents.

Of course. But this way you must have every time to insert your sudo password, with my script you don't have to.
Yeah, you must store your password into the script but i don't think it can represent a security problem.

Hahaha, putting the root password in a file is not a security risk?

What do you think having multiple accounts is good for?

Please, please don't write some programm with that attitude *omg*

It's securer to write a NOPASSWD rule for nautilus in the sudoers file :-)

c,Ya

Nice try, but no.

"gksudo nautilus" already does the same thing, and more securely. Heck if I wanted some similar functionality badly enough, I could just create a Places menu item with the "gksudo nautilus" command and label it something like "Open File System as Root" or whatever, although in Ubuntu, anything based on Ubuntu, and Foresight, it's technically not root per se, of course...

But then again, you, on the other hand, might be running a distro that uses a seperate root account, but I think it's safe to say that most of us here aren't (Ubuntu doesn't, for instance).

Like I said, nice try, but no.
