Open As Administrator in Right click menu

Here is how to add “Open as Administrator” to the right click menu for Nautilus. Quick and easy to use.

Ok then, lets get started by opening the Terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and copy and paste the command below.

sudo wget http://www.thelinuxgeeks.info/download/libnautilus-gksu.so

Then simply copy the file to the Nautilus extensions folder.

sudo cp libnautilus-gksu.so /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-3.0/

now to make the changes take effect use this command to stop Nautilus.

nautilus -q

Now to see the changes open Nautilus and right click on a folder to see “Open as Administrator” has been added to the menu.

And that’s all there is to it.
