Thread: Open program as root from "application browser" - gnome - opensuse 11.2

    Default Open program as root from "application browser" - gnome - opensuse 11.2

    Howdy.

    Is it possible to add a menu option to allow me to open a program as root from inside the application browser window? In windows if you hold ctrl and right click a program icon your given the option to "run as" (windows equivalent of sudo).

    Is there a way to get something like that in the application browser in gnome? Itd be realllly convenient.

    Hi
    You could use the application called alacarte to add the applications to the application browser, then you would need to edit the menu entry properties with gnomesu, for example;
    Code:
    gnomesu nautilus
