Add Open or Edit File and Folder as Root in Elementary OS Right Click Menu

Linuxslaves - As most of you may already know, Elementary OS file manager doesn't have an administrative rights to modify files and folder graphically. Well at least out of the box.


"You can always use Terminal to open or edit them as root". Yes yes yes. Fully agree!!!. Command line is way faster than graphical user interface (GUI). But I believe, command line isn't for everyone.


Unlike GNOME files aka Nautilus on Ubuntu and its based distributions that have a plugin that can be installed via universe repository, Pantheon file manager doesn't have this.


In order to create "XYZ folder as root" or open "XYZ as root" context menu, we need to create new contract.


TEMPLATE
[Contractor Entry]
Name=
Icon=
Description=
MimeType=
Exec=
Gettext-Domain=

Warning! Don't modify random files as root as you may mess up with wrong files and end up with a broken system. Use it only in the cases where it's required or you know exactly what you're doing... like "Yes, do as I say!!!"

How To Install Google Chrome on Any Linux Distributions Graphically

Linuxslaves.com - Most of Linux distributions are preinstalled with Firefox. It's nice web browser and considered as a better choice for privacy. But, if you are a fan of Google Chrome, no one won't force you to ditch Chrome and move to another e.g Microsoft Edge, Vivaldi, Brave, Opera browser.


We can install this Google world's most popular web browser via Terminal by running the magic of CLI. Unfortunately, command line is not for everyone, especially for new comers that switched from Windows to Linux.



The good thing about Google Chrome is that it adds a repository in your sources.list after installation is completed. That means the application will be updated along with the system updates provided by package manager.


Anyway, you should keep in mind that Google Chrome is not available for 32-bit operating systems, so please make sure that you are using a 64-bit operating system. And one more thing, you need to have an active internet connection.
