I am looking for a way to access a remote file system as root, using a protocol like
fish://. My goal is to be able to administer files through a GUI locally (e.g. with Nautilus or dolphin) as if they were on the local computer; and without setting up a share.
I've found a way to elevate privileges immediately, when using ssh (
ssh -t user@host sudo -s). One acceptable answer to my question would be to do something similar with sshfs. Another example would be to elevate privilege post-login.
