[SOLVED] Thunar as sudo

Post by Tmaros » Sat Sep 15, 2018 10:09 am

Hi!

I am sorry if this is unnecessary topic - I tried to find an answer, but was unsuccessful. I remember seeing one of your tutorials, where you showed us "by the way" how to open a folder with Thunar as root. If I am correct, a yellow line appeared at the top of Thunar, showing us we have to be careful with permissions we have. Since this wasn't topic of tutorial, it's really hard to find it.
Could you help me with that? How do you "elevate" yourself to admin inside Thunar?

Thanks in advance,
Tim

Right mouse click on the folder you want open, will open a context menu in thunar - open folder as root.

Hi!
I am sorry, I use vanilla Arch. You must have defined custom action right? That is why I don't have this option. Will try to solve that way.
Best regards, Tim
