Having used Debian MATE before, I miss
caja-admin package, which allows to open a folder/file as root just right-clicking it and choosing "Open as administrator" on the context-menu.
This issue has been treated before in other topics and it's clear that
caja-gksu is no more maintained officially and that typing
admin://before the directory-path works as well:
This is tedious for me as I prefer opening any folder as root just by right-clicking it. So my question is: why was removed this functionality?
I know about an AUR package called
caja-gksu, but that doesn't work for folders.
There's also a deb package called
caja-admin. Would creating an Arch package from this one cause any kind of problems? Would it be a really bad behavior to upload that to-arch-converted caja-admin to AUR?
Here's the sourcecode of caja-admin: https://github.com/infirit/caja-admin
