Root Actions servicemenu is a replacement/alternate for the default Edit-as-root servicemenu.

It allows an admin user to perform several root only actions from konqueror (It of course asks for a password)


The following actions can be performed (see the screenshot):

Edit as Text: Open file in Kate editor as root (shown with files)

Edit as Hex: Open file in KHexEdit (you may need to install 'khexedit' package from universe) editor as root (shown with files)

Open in Konqueror: Open file/folder in root konqueror window

Change owner to root: Changes ownership to root:root

Change owner to user: Changes ownership to 1000:1000 (the default user)

The menu can be localized by editing the servicemenu .desktop files


uncompress the two .desktop files to ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus

Any comments, criticism and improvement suggestions welcomed.
