Root (su) Konqueror

Konqueror by peppelorum 8 comments

just type fish://user@localhost/path/you/want
and you'll be prompted for the password.
For example fish://root@localhost/home/otheruser/ allows me to browse the homedir of "otheruser" if i have the root password.

I think using KIO here is better than starting a new konqueror process because your private settings (like customized appearance and themes) still work and it uses less memory.


ps: i have mistakenly posted this comment on kde-look.
sorry for all the mess, i just confused the sites - wanted to post it here :) - Jul 01 2006
