Dolphin Service Menus
Score 59%
Description:

Open Dolphin as Root is a basic service menu for KDE4 and Dolphin 1.2.x which will create an Open as Root menu when right-clicking directories.

To install it, just copy the open_as_root.desktop file into ~/.kde/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus, where ~ is your home directory.

Tested in KDE 4.2 and Dolphin 1.2.1

Thank you, I was looking for something like that, works perfectly in KDE 4.2 (Debian wheezy)!

Just tried this in
Dolphin 2, KDE Development Platform 4.8.4 (4.8.4)
running inside Xfce4.8 on Debian 7.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work.
Dolphin still only offers:
1. exiting to Thunar
2. open dir as root
3. copy with Thunar
4. and then return to Dolphin.

I had hoped to use Dolphin instead of Krusader,
but might as well just use Thunar?

Is there another option to Copy as Root from within Dolphin 2?

regards.

and now I find the real "Services Menu".
Still learning the ropes.
Hopefully, one of the plugins will help.
Thanks. Sorry for the noise.
