If you want the app to always run as root
1) Pin the application to the launcher as normal.
2) Locate the applications .desktop file which will be in either:
- or somewhere else, use locate .desktop|grep APPAME
3) Open with gedit:
gksudo gedit /usr/share/applications/APPNAME.desktop
4) Then change the line
Exec=gksudo -k -u root APP_COMMAND
This command will also keep your environment which is very usefull if you need to connect to others servers and use your private key.
To add a quicklist option to 'Run as root'
Follow steps 1, 2 and 3 above
If the launcher currently doesn't have any other quicklist options, just append this to the end of the document
- [Runroot Shortcut Group]
- Name=Run as root
- Exec=gksudo -k -u root APP_COMMAND
