"Open as Root/Administrator" Powerful Entry for Nautilus Context Menu

root ubuntu
Most users like to open files/folders as root directly from nautilus to do perform some actions using super powers, or simply want to edit system files directly from nautilus instead of command line interface. Nautilus offers ways to do that via extension or script, so we made it available for 15.10/15.04/14.04/12.04 and other relevant Ubuntu based distributions, it is compatible with following Nautilus 3.4/3.6/3.8/3.10/3.12/3.14+ versions. Now you can easily add this option in your nautilus/file-manager with just commands. Basically it just adds an entry to the context menu where you can easily access it with just a click.

Ubuntu 14.10/14.04/13.10/13.04/Relevant Ubuntu derivatives
ubuntu root

Ubuntu 12.04/Relevant Ubuntu derivatives
open as root
