For Ubuntu Users

Hi There...

Its a small update (may be known to many of us).

How to open folders with root permission in Ubuntu?

Well here are the steps to achieve it...

Getting Started

1. Open the terminal and install first the nautilus-gksu with this command:

sudo apt-get install nautilus-gksu

2. Run now this command:

sudo cp /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-2.0/ /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-3.0/

3. Restart now nautilus with this command:

nautilus -q

4. Right-click now on any file or folder and select "Open as administrator":

And you are done :)
