In Ubuntu 14.04 LTS I used to
MenuLibre application to create menu items for applications in Unity and Gnome desktop environments as an alternative to edit the text file
sudo apt-get install menulibre
One of the customizations I did was create an action in Nautilus icon context menu "Open as Administrator" with the following lines in
/usr/share/applications/nautilus.desktop, not the path of screenshot:
Actions=Window;Administrator; [Desktop Action Window] Name=Open a new window Exec=nautilus --new-window OnlyShowIn=Unity; [Desktop Action Administrator] Name=Open as Administrator Exec=gksudo "nautilus --new-window" OnlyShowIn=Unity;
Taking as its premise that the
nautilus-actions extension is already installed by default, builtin in the Ubuntu.
apt-cache show nautilus-actions apt-cache policy nautilus-actions
When I click the right mouse button on the "Files" icon, the Nautilus file manager, a drop down context menu was shown to the item "Open as Administrator".
However, in the version 15.10 Wily Werewolf, nothing happens, it seems to me that the
nautilus-actions extension is being ignored by Nautilus 3.14.
Does anyone have any idea what might be happening?
PS: I know the
nautilus-admin extension, but it is not installed by default in Ubuntu.
