Add a menu entry for launching nautilus as a administrator/root user
Last modified: 2013-03-13 01:42:17 EDT
Currently the way to access nautilus as root user would be launch it from the
terminal as su -
Have an entry by default in the desktop as described in the link
Sometimes it is useful for changing permissions or moving files in system
We don't want the user to ever need to run Nautilus as the root user. It's not
useful either to have terminology in the desktop with words such as "root" or
"administrator" - users wont understand it.
Btw, we don't even need this for all desktop use cases anyway by just only
allowing the console user to do certain privileged operations (yes, there's a
few bugs left where we do ask for the root password, e.g. package updates,
setting timezone etc.). Patches for fixing said bugs are welcome.
